One of the rarest Mopars, and most highly desired, the 71 Hemi Cuda Convertible. This one is getting auctioned off, and has an interesting history

According to the auction house, and no one has anything else to print about it that Google could find, it was stolen in 71, and found by Harold Sullivan just days before it was to be sold for scrap. I learned about it at http://www.sportscardigest.com/hemi-cuda-featured-at-barrett-jackson-scottsdale-2012/

Now, as a sceptical person who rarely believes the salesman, and asks questions... I;d like to know if it was stolen, was it recovered, did the insurance company that paid out for it have a claim on it, who and why was figuring to sell a rare musclecar like this for scrap, and how did Harold track it down? 

I ask, because NO ONE has printed anything but the sales pitch. And you aren't reading my blog for the sales pitch, 'cause I ain't selling nothing here. Just sharing interesting stuff with wheels. 

Below are a couple photos from Google Books of Harolds collection of rare mopars, he may have the coolest collection of them, and it's commonly known as Mystical Mopar Collection, and featured in Dream Garages books. Harold owns the Silver Bullet, the famous GTX that the Mopar engineers used for testing racing parts in the late 60's.
