The second generation Barracuda was stylishly redesigned with many unique design features such as new revised front and rear ends with wider wheel openings and curved side glass. In addition, smoother sleeker side contours and chrome that was sparsely used which highlight the newly redesigned features.
This Barracuda hard top coupe was built at the Hamtramck plant in Michigan and remains true to the way it was assembled all those years ago; with the original 318 V-8 engine, coupled with a 3 speed automatic transmission. This car has had 1 repaint of its original color of Ember Gold. The upholstery is black which is the color combo as it left the Hamtramck assembly plant. This car also came equipped with the armrest bench seat. Some of the options when ordered are: rear window defroster, map light, electric windshield washer, rear radio speaker, rear speaker control, AM radio and cigarette lighter. Of course the 318 V-8 with the 3 speed automatic transmission hooked up to the 8 ¾ posi track rear end and the rare deluxe hub caps.
You know you can tell when you see a well kept car by viewing it. The interior shows well and all of the body gaps are proper and line up very nicely. This Barracuda is still supporting the original floor and trunk pans and exterior sheet metal.
The engine compartment is neat and on point as well with many new parts and upgrades. This is a well mannered and maintained car that drives as it should and can be driven anywhere with confidence and no issues.
