2.1954 Dodge FireArrow Convertible Concept Car $1,1000,000,00
The Dodge Firearrows were a grouping of four one-off concept/dream cars designed by Chrysler's legendary design chief Virgil Exner and built by Ghia of Turin, Italy. The series consisted of a full scale mockup (Firearrow I), THIS CAR Fire II a running, driving fully roadable car based on that mockup. Firearrow III a sport coupe, a further evolution of the earlier Firearrows and finally Firearrow IV, a fully roadable convertible with folding top, windows and fully designed and engineered to be translated into series production.
Unfortunately, Chrysler made the decision to not proceed into production and these cars are but a great moment in automotive history.
These cars are the only survivors of the wonderful early series
of Chrysler concept cars that were designed as serious, elegant
Italian styled sports cars which could very easily have found a
market niche to compete with the Corvette, Thunderbird and several
European marques. They not only are wonderful looking cars, but
are powered by the legendary Hemi engine and a pleasure to drive.

10. 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda $500,000.00
This Hemi 'Cuda was special ordered and delivered new in June of 1970 by Bill Reardon of Clarksburg, WV. Upon it's delivery from Shreves Plymouth-Dodge Bill drove his new factory race car the 28 miles home. Bill was 62 when he finally got his "race car". He immediately set out to make it even faster. Bill removed the 2x4 intake, the complete exhaust system, rear third member, the rear wheels and tires and the front shocks. He replaced them with the best high performance parts of the day and paid special attention to see that none of the factory parts were misplaced or damaged. The first race season Bill made some 30 passes at the 3 local drag strips. He had a good first season with some times in the high 10 second range. At the end of the season he garaged his "race car" and began to prepare for the next year. That winter Bill Reardon passed away suddenly. In 1977 Bill's widow passed away. The Reardon's son was left to dispose of the estate and placed an ad in the local paper. Marvin Dillion is the sole person responsible for the salvation of this great car. After seeing the car and agreed to pay the price of $3500. Marvin took his new found love home and immediately began replacing the "hot rod" parts with the original parts that she was born with. In 1993 Marvin sold the car, Marvin purchased this car with 42 miles on her. Even through the odometer turned to the 43 mile mark as he moved her from time to time he did not put a complete mile on this car for the entire 16 years he had her. Passing through 3 more owners and the miles stayed low until 2005 when renowned, internationally known "Hemi builder" John Arruzza of Thomasville, NC bought her with 61 miles on her now and was in need for him to make her run and perform as she did when new. John performed the tune up and fluid changes that a stored car needs and rebuilt both of the carbs so she could once again roar to life at the turn of the key. John test drove her to the mileage of 73 and since then she has been moved enough to come up to the 74 miles that are on her today. John still has the Ziplock baggie that contains the rubber he burned off the tires on his test drive and she sits here today ready to go. This is the lowest mileage hemi "Cuda known to exist and perhaps should stay that way. She comes with complete documentation including the original build sheet and has all known numers documented, recorded and verified. Here is truly the definition of a survivor, muscle car. Built as one of the last 10 hemi "Cudas of 1970.
