If you don’t at least appreciate a classic American muscle car, then you’re probably lacking a pulse! We’ve seen some pretty stunning vehicles come through our doors, but none compare to the value of the three muscle cars listed below. These are some of the rarest, most sought after classics in the world. While your car might now be worth a cool 3 million, our Carlife Gilbert & Mesa auto repair technicians will treat it like it is!
1. 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible 4-Speed
Known as the “Holy Grail of Muscle Cars”, it is believed that there is only one original Hemi Cuda Convertible 4-Speed left in existence and only two were ever given a four-speed transmission and Hurst shifter from the factory. In 2014, the only known original sold for 3.5 million dollars!
2. 1967 Chevrolet Corvette L88
The king of Corvettes. Only 20 of the ‘67 Chevy Corvette L88 were ever produced. The only L88 with original panels known to exist sold in 2013 for 3.2 million dollars!
3. 1967 Shelby GT500e Super Snake
One of the most special, one-of-a-kind cars ever created, the ‘67 GT500e Super Snake was only a special order option but not a single Super Snake was ordered. Prior to ‘67, the Super Snakes were only used for racing and were never street legal. The ‘67 model was the first street legal Ford Mustang equipped with the same engine as the LeMans winning Shelby GT40. This car most recently sold for 1.3 million dollars!
