Mecum Auction Presents - Lot # S115 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda
This is the very car that "Mr. Four-Speed," the legendary Ronnie Sox, piloted to 14 dominating wins in the 1971 NHRA season. The '71 'Cuda represented the pinnacle of performance for the Chrysler factory drag racing program and also for the Sox & Martin team, as oppressive weight breaks, the discontinuation of the Hemi and rule changes favoring tube-framed small-block racecars conspired against Pro Stock Mopar racers. Nevertheless, the Sox & Martin '71 Hemi 'Cuda's spectacular racing success that season stands proudly in the record books. The 'Cuda has been treated to an extensive restoration to its 1971 race configuration and is in exquisite condition. It sports the best that the factory had to offer that year, including the famous 426 Hemi with dual-plug cylinder heads, dual quad intake and of course, the 4-speed transmission that Ronnie Sox shifted with such virtuosic skill. It is finished in the original eye-grabbing, red, white and blue "Sox & Martin" livery and never fails to draw huge crowds.
