This award-winning, black-on-black Barracuda is powered by a 426ci twin-plug HEMI engine and a manual-shift valve body 727 automatic transmission. The engine has been heavily upgraded with two ignition systems and two distributors, polished tunnel ram, lots of polished pieces on engine, two Holley dominators, roller cam and rockers, dual-line Keith Black oil pump, two oil filters, 12-quart oil pan, hood scoop and 26" five-row industrial core radiator with the original Mopar top and bottom tanks. It features a 3" driveline, 8.75 Sure-Grip narrowed rear end with 430 gears, HEMI torsion bar in the front, super stock springs in the rear, and a custom 15-gallon stainless-steel fuel tank. It rides on Mickey Thompson Sportsman tires, Weld Drag Star wheels, front disc brakes, drums in rear, and the black interior features Auto Meter gauges, including a 5" tachometer with shift light. The awards do not go with the car. It also has shaved door handles that open with remote. It runs great and a dependable car.
