Fully Restored 1968 Plymouth Barracuda
This is a fully restored, original 1968 Plymouth Barracuda. This
is a very versatile car. It is set up for drag racing or road
racing at a beginner level, to cruising for a Sunday drive in the
country or showing at a car show. There were no corners cut or
?shortcuts? taken anywhere on this build. Everything was done by
hand, without the use of things such as fiberglass parts or
bodyfiller work. I can and will provide a time line of pictures to
support this original work from the beginning to the end of build,
as well as receipts for everything that was purchased for the
The car has been fully restored, starting with a media blast down to metal. The metal work is true, original metal parts from donor cars. The car was then coated with epoxy primer before being painted with House of Kolors White with Silver Flake. The engine is a 408 Stroker that was done by Tristar Engines and comes with a two year warranty. Tristar Engines did Dyno and cam break in to ensure the engine can push over 512 horsepower?I can provide this Dyno sheet to prove these end results. The car came originally with a 318 engine, which I saved the block of. The car has a TCI 727 transmission, which was built and rated to 600 horsepower with trans cooler. There is a QA1 K frame along with A arms and fox shocks in front. The car rests on Foose wheels and Nitto tires that are brand new. I sent the original dash out for restoration and had it completely rebuilt. The sub frame is welded together, so the car is solid.
I have made several improvements to the car to increase its performance. I have removed the rear leafs of the car and installed four link rear and custom Moser M10 Ford 9 inch rearend, in order to increase the comfortability of the ride and make it adjustable for the driver. I also took the rear of the car apart and added three inches in each fender for more room and more rubber to handle the increased horsepower. The gears were installed higher, at 3:00, so that the car runs around 2500 rpm at 65 mph. I also put 2 inch drop spindles with Wilwood disc brakes in all four corners, along with using a hydroboost with the Wilwood brake system to ensure the car stops on a dime with little effort. The front sway bar has all new steering components. I added an a/c system to help keep you cool on hot days. There is a Flowmaster exhaust set up like the AAR model, which I ceramic coated. The entire interior was sound proofed before the interior was installed.
I have only put 150 miles on the car, which I did to make sure that everything was in top notch order. I am a perfectionist with all the cars I build and my work shows it. If you have any questions about anything I have done to build this car, please do not hesitate to ask .

You read the headline correctly: This is the four-door Barracuda that Plymouth didn’t build in 1970, except it actually did, sort of

I got a text message from a buddy of mine in Bowman, North Dakota, and he asked me if I knew anybody that would be interested in a 1964 Plymouth Barracuda.
