We will start off with the exterior of the Barracuda. As you walk
around it you can see that all of the body is phenomenal on it with
possibly the best fit of the panels we've seen on one of these
cars. The doors open and close with a seamless effort and an
excellent fit. All your gaps at the doors, hood and trunk are even
and symmetrical as well. The monotone White has a brilliant shine
to it and is accented by the Black Stripes down the sides. This '68
features the Formula S 383 hood treatment along with the working
hood blinkers. Both bumpers look to be original for this car and in
excellent condition. The rest of the chrome and stainless is also
phenomenal and has been polished to a brilliant shine. You will
also notice that the glass appears to be original with all the side
windows operating with ease. To finish off the exterior it's
sitting on a set of 14" Steel Wheels with the Red Streak Tires.
Next, we will look on the inside of this Formula S 383. On the
inside it's done in black which is the factory option and flows
perfectly with the exterior color combo. A lot of this interior
appears to be original as well and is all in phenomenal condition.
It features the Bucket Seats and the all important Four Speed
Shifter. All the door panels, carpet, and headliner are all in
great condition. Looking at the dash you can see some light age
showing on the dash pad, but everything else looks amazing. It has
the straight from 68 look with the factory gauges that are working
along with the working Solid Stat Radio. All the dash lights are
working as the should along with the map light, even the key light
is working in this Barracuda. In the trunk it's in excellent
condition all appears original.

correct heads, intake and 4426S Carter Carburetor. For exhaust it
has the correct manifolds with dual pipes and Dynomax Mufflers with

gorgeous detail and looks just like it would have when new in 68.
