Plymouth Hemi Cuda sells for 3.5 million at Mecum.

Car auctions are always fun if only to dream. Mecum has been doing high end auctions for a good while now and they do them right. That’s why when a rare 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda convertible comes up for bid chances are you find it at Mecum. That was the case this week when one of the nicest examples of the 19 ever built went up for auction at Mecum Seattle.
