Mopar fans are a dedicated group of enthusiasts who have helped drive incredible demand for vintage Plymouth and Dodge muscle cars throughout the past few years. Lovers of Mopar muscle will be like kids in a candy store at Mecum’s 29th annual Original Spring Classic. The auction features at least 30 Hemi-powered cars, such as the Plymouth Hemi Cuda and Dodge Hemi Challenger, as well as at least 10 V10-powered Dodge Vipers. These Mopar dream cars are among the more than 2,000 vehicles to be showcased at the auction, which takes place May 17-21 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis.
Leading the way are two street-legal Plymouth Hemi Cudas (Lots S129
) and two exceptional Plymouth Hemi drag racers, a 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Pro Stock, one of the most dominant Pro Stock cars of the era-campaigned by Ronnie Sox for the famous Sox & Martin team (Lot F212
) and a 1968 Barracuda B029 Super Stock (Lot S160.1
). One look at these exceptional cars demonstrates why the present day continues as a high point for Hemi-powered Plymouth muscle.
On the Dodge side of the ledger, the Wayne Briggs Viper collection
includes six Vipers of various years and trims, all of which will delight fans of the American two-seater that combines raw muscle with tremendous sports-car handling. Vintage muscle is also well represented with a 1970 Dodge Hemi Challenger R/T (Lot F170.1
) as well as two superb 1968 Dodge Hemi Dart LO23 drag cars (Lots S195
). Mopar fans will not be disappointed.
