Vehicle Description

1968 Plymouth Barracuda Convertible

This is your chance to own an ultra rare 1968 Barracuda Convertible 318ci 4-Speed "Hurst!" Plymouth only made 40 in this configuration. How many remain today?

"Call them unique. They are. The one-of-a-kind sports car with a zest for fun life. These are the cars that are coming on strong all over America." 1968 Barracuda sales brochure.

In 1968 the Barracuda was easily distinguished by the round side marker lights. But what really makes this beauty standout is not only is she a convertible one of only 2840 made, but she's a LA 318 CID V8 with a Hurst 4-Speed (A-833 cast-iron case) with the popular pistol grip and 8 3/4 rear with 3.23 gears limited slip. Run the numbers for yourself she is one of only 40 built!

The 318 has 2500 miles since the build. Here is a short list of the many upgrades starting with a new Edelbrock performer 1406 600cfm carburetor/electric choke, Edelbrock dual-plane Air-Gap manifold, and a Edelbrock performer RPM cam. The MDS 6AL ignition, Billet distributor, 8mm plug wires and OPTIMA battery gives plenty of fire power. The Hedman metallic-ceramic coated 18-gauge steel full-tube headers, Flowmaster with 2.5" exhaust has a menacing growl.

A complete electrical upgrade from bumper to bumper including a modern fuse box. The 318 received a new wiring harness as did the dash. The instrument bezel, bright work, trim and dash pad is all New. Even the correct radio was restored and yes it works. Let's not forget a new in dash rally tach! The power top pump is new so the heavy 2 layered vinyl with real glass rear window top goes up and down smooth. Power steering makes driving a breeze. What a nice ride thanks to new KYB shocks (4), ball joints (upper and lower), strut rods, bushings, BF Goodrich T/A's ( black side out - if you want raised white letters turn them around) and yes, a front-end alignment. The Barracuda handles and drives like a dream. All drum brakes are new! The hubs, wheel bearings (inner & outer), brake hoses, wheel cylinders and steel lines are all NEW!

The interior is as clean as it gets with new rear quarter panels, new carpet, scuff plates, rear seat has new skins. The front seats are original and in excellent condition.

There is no rust in the floor pans or trunk....Solid! The body is clean and straight with no patch panels. This has been a dry California climate car. The original color would have been a metallic brown. The metallic blue paint is a 7 out of 10. Yes, it does have rock chips, and light scratches from being driven. As a driver the Barracuda has a mirror finish and in the sun the silver metallic make her POP!

All the hard work is done. Drive as is or give her a new paint and she'll be show ready.

YES, it's a number matching car and YES it has the original fender tag!

Take it home for $28,995.00!
