For Sale: 1970 Plymouth Barracuda in Charlotte, North Carolina


Vehicle Description

In a hobby that's chock full of numbers-matching time capsules and show-stopping customs, it's always nice to see a tasteful muscle car that's as tough as it is timeless. A head turning road rocket, this slick Barracuda has been completely restored, fitted with 426 cubic inches of legendary Hemi and wrapped in brilliant green and black aesthetics. If you're searching for a broad-shouldered MoPar classic that wraps great performance in handsome looks, check out this awesome E-Body!


The beneficiary of a detailed, ground-up restoration, this choice Barracuda is a fine example of exactly how legendary American muscle should look: large, lethal and in charge! The car's thorough rebuild removed decades-dulled single-stage to make way for a glowing green profile that's sealed under a White, power-operated top. And today, this Plymouth rolls as a clean collection of well-aligned panels and ridged character lines that presents a better-than-factory appearance.

Those lines manifest at a 1971 Barracuda grille, which hangs a quartet of traditional headlights above a crisp bumper and a 1971 Barracuda valance. At the top of those lamps, a familiar Shaker Hood frames small lanyards with a subtle "PLYMOUTH" script. Opposite those pins, fresh glass reflects professionally polished stainless, 3-speed wipers and color-keyed Sport Mirrors. That stainless falls behind factory door handles, tight wheel lips and 1971 Barracuda fenders. And at the back of the car, a 1971 Barracuda valence hangs stylish taillights and tasteful "'cuda by PLYMOUTH" badging above bright exhaust tips and a second crisp bumper.


Pull the pins on this classic's fully functional hood and you'll find 426 cubic inches of professionally rebuilt Hemi that's ready to rock and roll! Affectionally nicknamed the elephant block, this Chrysler legend utilizes iron heads, forged internals, Mopar Performance Purple Camshaft lifters and a Mopar Performance Purple Cam to turn big power into miles of smiles. All that high performance hardware is housed in a glossy Hemi Orange block, which hangs an attractive set of Organisol-coated valve covers above correct, low restriction exhaust manifolds. Fuel and air are supplied by quality Edelbrock carbs that are bolted to a high performance intake. Compression gets sparked by hot Chrysler Electronic Suppression cables, which are snapped onto a correct points distributor. Resultant combustion is cooled by 26 inches of professionally re-cored Chrysler radiator. And, visually, the engine bay of this stellar MoPar is in brilliant, show-ready condition, featuring acute detailing and correct finishes throughout.


This Barracudas fully restored chassis is every bit as clean and straight forward as its solid exterior panels and fully sorted engine. The high-winding big block churns power through an 18-spline 4-speed, which spins a custom Denny's driveshaft in front of a dressed Dana 60 that's finished with 3.54 gears and a posi-traction differential. Braking comes courtesy of power-assisted discs. Factory-style power steering leads Hemi torsion bars and Hemi leaf springs. Charred dinosaurs flow through aluminized pipes to Chrysler-branded mufflers and rear-mounted resonators. And at the corners, date-correct Rallye Wheels spin 235/60R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As in front of 255/60R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As.


Inside this convertible, a tasteful combination of Black and White vinyl is simple, functional and good as new. Top dead center, high-back buckets are restoration-fresh, showing virtually no signs of wear. Clean carpet centers a cool Hurst Pistol Grip Shifter between vivid door panels. In keeping with the car's theme, a 1971 Barracuda dash frames familiar Rallye telemetry. And the driver carves curves with a predictable yet cool 1971 Tuff Wheel.

The true beauty of a classic car is that it can be anything you want it to be. Love original lines, but want a little more substance? Looking for some killer metal that'll wow crowds AND tear up the roads? Here it is, no compromises, no disclaimers and no excuses!
