Texas Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to present this classic 73 Plymouth Barracuda. Born a high price class, 318-equipped Barracuda, this car now sports a full cuda cosmetic package and upgraded 340 cubic inch engine. Our facilities have completed a lot of recent mechanical work including replacing the heater core, air conditioning compressor and components along with a replaced sending unit for the gas tank and various mechanicals. We have approximately $4,000 in receipts to verify this. This work was performed in 2012.
Plymouths own pony car was in its final years in 1973. The Barracuda was produced from 1964 until 1974. This example has been equipped with full Cuda treatment including the High Impact Vitamin C Orange Paint, Billboard Stripes, Spoiler, Badging, and the 340 c.i. 4bbl. powerplant.
The exterior displays classic cuda styling cues including the sinister blacked-out tail light panel and spoiler.
Closer inspection of the finish will confirm an exceptionally solid and straight car with a good driver quality finish. The paint has been polished to a mirror-like shine; there are some chip touch-ups and minor imperfection on closer inspection.
Plymouths E Body Barracuda was born in 1970, conceived with a lower, wider, more menacing version of the B body predecessor.
The interior features classic sport buckets along with the center console. Cuda badging is prominent on both door panels. The dash displays the original speedometer & gauges along with a mounted tachometer near the speedometer. The original AM Radio was removed and a remote-operated Kenwood Excelon AM/FM stereo CD installed.
The classic sharks tooth grille design is desired among Mopar enthusiasts and musclecar lovers alike.
Behind the shark grille, is this transplanted 340 c.i. V8. This street-friendly mill features upgraded Edelbrock induction (carburetor & aluminum intake) along with the ceramic-coated head exhaust system. Creature comforts were few in the Mopar world circa 60s-70s, however this Plymouth is equipped the best of them, including air conditioning, power steering, and power front disc brakes.
Further inspection of the engine compartment will confirm exceptionally solid inner fender wells, core support, and firewall steel. Some evidence of the cars original yellow finish is evident if you look closely. Approximately $4,000 was recently spent on mechanicals including a replaced air conditioning system, heater core, along with a tune with spark plugs and wires replaced.
The undercarriage looks to be in good condition and the door undersides are solid. The shocks have recently been replaced. The exhaust system features headers and free-flowing dual pipes exiting out the rear valence pan.
The door panels are in good condition on either side.
The glass is in good condition on either side. The door rubber has been replaced and the rear window wipes appear to be the originals.
This stance is courtesy of polished 17-inch Eagle Alloy wheels wrapped in high performance radials sized at 275/40R17s & 245/45ZR17s. The tires have about 200 miles on them.
The trunk and trunk pan are clean and detailed throughout, complete with the correct mat.
