Chrysler 426 Hemi Cars Worth the Most

There is a pecking order on the value of original 426 Hemi cars. Let’s take a closer look at them and determine why they are worth more.

The following is a list of 426 Hemi cars from most expensive to least expensive:

  • 1971 Plymouth Cuda Hemi Convertible
  • 1970 Plymouth Cuda and Dodge Challenger Hemi Convertible.
  • 1969 Dodge Hemi Daytona and 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird.
  • 1970/1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda and Dodge Hemi Challenger.
  • 1968 Dodge Hemi Dart and Plymouth Hemi Barracuda (Super Stock)
  • 1968/1969/1970/1971 B-body Hemi Cars
  • 1966/1967 B-body Hemi Cars

The list above is typical in most of the Hemi sales. Occasionally a special 426 Hemi car is in a league of its own and can jump higher in value compared to its peers.

Also, the same can be said when a typically higher-priced car loses value due to condition, originality, missing parts or other factors.

E-body Convertibles

There was no 1971 Hemi Challenger convertible built in the factory, therefore the rare Hemi Cuda convertible stands alone in 1971.

Also, if the ’71 Hemi Cuda is a 4-speed, look out, because it is even rarer than the automatic.

In 1971 there were only 11 Hemi Cuda convertibles and 3 had a 4-speed.

The ’70 E-body Hemi convertibles bring in high dollars because there weren’t many built. In 1970 there were only 14 Hemi Cudas and 9 Hemi Challenger convertibles.

1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible sells for 3.5 million

Part of the reason why convertibles weren’t ordered much was due to their price tag. For instance, the base price of a convertible was already expensive, $3,291. Add in an extra $883 for a Hemi and you’re talking over $4,000. In addition, they were more expensive to insure.

The E-body hardtops for both years bring in big money too for the same reasons. In 1971 there were only a little over 100 hardtop Hemi Cudas and 71 hardtop Hemi Challengers.

1970 had more built but still not a huge production number. In ’70 there were 652 Hemi Cuda hardtops and 346 Hemi Challenger hardtops.

E-body Hemi Low Production Numbers Causing High Worth *Includes overseas

Dodge Daytona and Plymouth Superbird

These cars have a high value for the same reason as the E-bodies, low production numbers.

The Dodge Daytona and Plymouth Superbird were only produced to satisfy Nascar rules. They only made a limited production which allowed this streamlined body style to race around the ovals.

There were only 70 Dodge Hemi Daytonas and 135 Plymouth Hemi Superbirds built.

Ironically many of the winged cars sat on dealership’s lots and didn’t sell quickly. Many thought they were ugly, expensive or just too long.

If I could only travel back in time. I’d be running around and scooping these cars up. On second thought, where would I have found the money? It’s the same problem the people had in 1970.

1968 Dodge Hemi Dart (LO23) and Plymouth Hemi Barracuda (BO29)

These cars were sold to the public for the same reason as the winged cars but for the NHRA. Again, limited production numbers make these cars worth a lot of money.

They weren’t built for the street and came with no warranty. The following are the features:

  • They had no back seats.
  • No window cranks.
  • Radio delete.
  • Heater delete.
  • Lightweight Corning race glass.
  • Light gauge steel doors.
  • Lightweight bucket seats from a van.
  • Trunk mounted battery.
  • Race 426 Hemi Engine.
  • Headers.

The sole purpose was to race it.

1968 Dodge Hemi Dart LO23

They weren’t even painted. The car was only primed gray and the fiberglass front end came in black gelcoat. The racing teams would then paint the cars to fit their brands.

Today they bring in big bucks at the auctions. I think if they were a streetable car, they’d bring in more money.

There were 83 Dodge Hemi Darts and 72 Plymouth Hemi Barracudas built in 1968.

1968/69/70 B-body 426 Hemi Cars

The next step down in value is the late 60s B-body Hemi cars. These include the following:

  • Dodge Super Bee
  • Plymouth Road Runner
  • Dodge Charger
  • Plymouth GTX

These cars sell for good money and are more popular than the earlier versions because of their high impact colors, stripes and character.

The Road Runner was named after the cartoon character. The Super Bee came with Bumble Bee Stripes. The colors like Plum Crazy, orange, lemon twist and Lime Green bought much attention.

1966 and 1967 B-body 426 Hemi Cars

More of these early cars were produced than the later years making them less valuable. Many of them came in plain Jane Belvederes and Coronets.

Many of these cars were grocery getters on the outside without hood scoops, stripes, wings or fancy paint colors.

Little did the unsuspecting person next to them at the stoplight know they were about to get their doors blown off when the light turned green.

Neglected project cars for these years can be bought for under $50,000.
