Back in the late 60's, Ford and GM were building powerful cars with lots of horsepower. Chrysler was not going to take a back seat. The 1968 Barracuda was the answer to that challenge. They took the small but stylish Barracuda and placed in it a 440 Cubic Inch 375 horsepower V-8 making it more than competitive with the muscle cars of that time. This Barracuda is a tribute to the original drag race car that Chrysler produced in 1968. It has the fiberglass fenders and back trunk lid as well as a 4 speed transmission like the original drag car built for promotion purposes. The older restoration looks fantastic above and underneath all the suspension has been completely redone. The interior is very good. This car needs nothing except someone who wants a representation of a real muscle car. Truly looks like a beauty, runs like a beast.
