If this is Ron Adairs car it has all the appearences of a 72 Hemi car. Tom Quadrini saw this car years and years ago and said the vin on the dash had an R code in it. It very possibly could have gotten out the door before they pulled the plug on the Hemi. The car was also a very very early car so this could very well be a real 72 Hemi car. Remember folks never say never with any of this stuff. Just bare this is mind... How many 71 Hemi Cuda convertibles did they say USE to exist compared to how many they know about now???

Those are the numbers I have, but Canada is not an Export car.

so 3 Cars to Canada in 70(that's huge!!) and 2 in 71.

I was under the impression that it included Canada and that 2 went to Canada and 2 over seas each year.  Don't know for sure obviously just what I've been told!  Who will ever know what is out there??   :eekbig:   :eekbig:   :eekbig:   :eekbig:   :eekbig:

The point I was trying to make was they use to say years ago only 7 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertibles were made. Thatw as back in the mid 80's (some of you were still riding tri-cycles LOL!!!) There are lots of cars out there that werent supposed to be made. I even remeber a 73 or 74 6 pak Roadrunner that was in a magazine a few years ago. Never say never!!!!

Well there have been none documented or found to date. And think of how much research has gone into every possible Mopar built. There are tons of very high dollar collectors out there looking for these one offs. While they do strike paydirt every now and again, it is usually a dead end. Some documentation would have existed and the speculation and searching for the car(s) would have been in the magazines for years. They didn't make any 1970 Daytonas and look at the commotion they cause.

And the hemi was a low volume production, unlike the 440 six pack. And look at how very few actual 1972 440 6 pack cars are known.

While you never say never with Mopar, the possibilities are less than 100th of 1%. But, if it could be documented (and if this guy honestly believes it, Galen would decode it for free I'm sure) he would be sitting on the most valuable Mopar ever. Forget the 7 1971 converts - this would be it.

Not too likely huh? :grinyes:

 :iagree:

If such a car exists, why would the owner not have the car fully documented and such?

QA lot of people claim to have seen Bigfoot in the Pacific northwest....I'll put this 72 Hemicuda in that catagory until someone comes up with the car and some documentation.

but you never said if the guy who owns it is Ron Adair or not?? Thats who had this car last I knew. As far as why someone didnt have it documented...Maybe the person who owns it doesnt like the guy who documents these cars??? Not everyone likes Galen and also if the car were documented im sure it wouldnt be a secret too much longer after that and then the phone calls-emails and unexpected visitors would start and maybe thats why they havent done so yet. :dontknow:
