Muscle car enthusiasts can talk for hours (no, make that days) about how rare their cars are because of a certain option or color combination, but few are as distinctive as this one.

This one-of-one 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda with a special flower pattern vinyl top has been taken from its owner's garage in Westchester County, New York. While stolen muscle cars aren't that unusual, this one will be especially easy to spot. 

The flowered vinyl top, referred to by Plymouth as the "Mod Top", was offered as an option in 1970 lure in female buyers who were largely staying away from muscle cars at the time. However, the top was a flop and just one car left the factory wearing the festive floral pattern.

Reward out for information on car's whereabouts

According to CNN Money, the car was taken from the owner's home where it was being prepared to be shipped elsewhere. The owner and the police are unclear if the thief or thieves targeted the car specifically or if they took advantage of an unexpected situation.

Hemi Cudas without the flowered roof are worth about $65,000, but this particular car because of its uniqueness was insured for a hefty $1.4 million.

Hagerty, which insured the vehicle, is offering a $50,000 reward for information that helps locate it.
