This impressive example features a numbers-matching engine and transmission, which have been verified by Mopar expert Dave Wise, who prepared a Wise Vehicle Inspection Report for this car. Also, this HEMI ’Cuda has been recorded in the MMC Detroit Global Vehicle Registry.
Cosmetics include the dazzling original color combination of High Impact FJ5 code Lime Light green paint, black “Hockey Stripes” on the rear quarter panels and a matching black bucket seat interior. The popular Shaker hood scoop adds visual appeal, as do the body-colored wheels and “dog dish” hubcaps.
Making this HEMI ’Cuda even more special is its lengthy option list, with power disc brakes, Rallye gauges, Rim Blow steering, AM radio and center console with woodgrain top.
This beautiful HEMI ’Cuda has undergone a high-quality professional restoration and comes with its warranty document and owner’s manual. If you’re looking for a classic matching-numbers, 4-speed HEMI ’Cuda, this is definitely a car to watch.

With only about 100 miles on the odometer since undergoing a full restoration by Ohio-based Boss Auto, this Mustang checks all the right boxes: Power comes from a 428ci Cobra Jet V8 engine producing 335 horsepower. The engine is topped by a Shaker hood scoop that’s accented by a white hood stripe.
The rear window louvers and rear deck spoiler give the car a great look, especially with this color combination. In terms of documentation, the original window sticker is included, as is a Deluxe Marti Report.
