1968 Barracuda 340-S (Formula S). Triple Black, Numbers Matching 340/727 car. (Motor, Transmission, Radiator Support, Trunk Lip, VIN, all Match) This car just won the Don Garlit's All Mopar Show in Ocala Florida this last weekend, 11/2019. (Large Regional Show) First Place Saturday as chosen by the participants, 2nd Place on Sunday chosen by the judges. This car was full dis-assembled in 2015/2016 and repainted the original BB1 (Black). No rust on this car anywhere, doors, trunk, body, flawless. Beautiful paint everywhere, inside the doors, under the hood, inner fenders, firewall, inside the trunk; all as shiny as the hood and doors. Every piece of rubber was changed out on this car, suspension bushings, shocks, etc. Motor dis-assembled and rebuilt (have all the receipts) stock internals (forged crank), Mopar Purple Shaft .509 lift cam. Mopar M1 single plane manifold, quick fuel 750 cfm vac. secondary carb. TTI ceramic coated 340 headers, stainless steel (mandrel bend) exhaust all the way out back; cross-over, flow-masters, and stock chrome tips. ($4k in the exhaust alone) Transmission rebuild, shift kit installed, full manual valve body (forward pattern), Hurst Quarter Stick shifter. New carpet and interior (already has deluxe interior); inside is perfect, legendary seat covers. Wheel Vintiques 15x8 in back, 15x6 in front, Hoosier Radials all the way around; 10.5 inches rubber out back. (3.91 gears, perfect street gear, sure grip) Drove it to the Garlit's show, runs/drives fantastic, not even the smallest shake at 100 mph. This car will not disappoint. They made 516, 1968 340-S Notchback Autos, I'm told there are less than 30 left with the numbers matching 340 and transmission. This car, triple-black, radio delete (dash has never been cut, no hole in the fender for an antenna) export to Canada car, could very well be a 1-of-1 car. (I have the original owner's manual and certicard too) Many people at the Garlit's show thought it would certainly be one of the nicest notch's in the country. (I do have all the original parts in boxes; intake/exhaust manifold, carb, distributor, shifter/center console, torque converter, original wheels, everything) Why am I selling it? I have more fun making them (working on them) than driving and owning. If/when I sell it, I'll get something else similar, and do this again. $36k OBO
The Pick of the Day is a first-year example of the Mopar pony car
This is the eighth vehicle in the 30-day Countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s 47th annual Scottsdale auction.
You read the headline correctly: This is the four-door Barracuda that Plymouth didn’t build in 1970, except it actually did, sort of
Plymouth only built 107 of these Hemi ‘Cudas in 1971, and of those only 59 were equipped with 4-speed manual transmission.
The Pick of the Day is a restored and resto-modded 1967 Plymouth Barracuda coupe that looks like it was done right, with performance upgrades for power and drivability.
Offered at the 46th Scottsdale Barrett-Jackson auction, this funny car, recognized as “Snake II,” is the original car used in the popular “Snake vs. Mongoose” match
Plymouth Barracudas have the distinction of being produced for exactly one decade to the day with the third and last generation of ‘Cudas becoming best-known among muscle car collectors.
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.
Mopar fanatics will have much to cheer about as 30 vintage Hemis and at least 10 Dodge Vipers cross the block during Mecum’s Original Spring Classic auction held May 17-21.
