Whoever says you can't own a nice six-figure MoPar without a framed
Broadcast Sheet and a call to Galen Govier obviously hasn't been to
our 78,000 square foot showroom. That's because, as dedicated
gearheads who sweat 30 weight motor oil, we strive to deliver the
world's finest investment grade metal AND first class muscle cars
that literally define the term "custom". Take, for example, this
wicked 1971 Plymouth Barracuda. The product of a detailed,
ground-up build that included modern leather, Lamborghini pigment
and 501 cubic inches of stroked MoPar power, it's an exceptionally
well done piece that'll more than hold its own against anything at
the show. Looking for some old school Detroit metal that wraps some
of the nastiest muscle your money can buy in one of the best
looking packages to ever prowl American streets? This awesome
resto-mod is just your style!
LIKE 1971, BUT BETTER!
The product of a meticulous, ground-up build that mixed years of
skill with a heavy checkbook, this solid coupe wears an
impressively straight fuselage that's been massaged to
better-than-factory alignment. The car's brilliant two-stage, best
known for embellishing modern Lamborghinis, shines rich between
stripped panels and custom, bifurcated quarter stripes. That orange
and silver menace looks particularly classy thanks to a roster of
intricate details. And it all adds up to one of the coolest
Plymouth customs under the sun!
The show starts with the best Barracuda grille ever created, which
bends subtle Satin Black gills around bright headlights, crystal
clear parking lamps and a mirrored bumper. At the top of the car, a
familiar 'Cuda hood props silver-trimmed scoops in front of
like-new glass that's cased in straight stainless frames. At the
sides of the car, prominent fender lines complement filled markers,
flush handles and factory fender louvers. And at the back of the
car, a Satin Black Go Wing shades a body-matched tail panel that's
traced by fresh taillights and a second mirrored bumper.
Notice that this Barracuda's clean quarters are devoid of
Chrysler's iconic '440' lettering? Yeah, that's because this
classic's thoroughbred V8 isn't just some simple assembly line
transplant. Big, bad and born to run, the car's rowdy 440 has been
stroked all the way out to exactly 501 cubic inches and roughly 600
horsepower! At the top of the monster block, a custom air cleaner
feeds two Edelbrock 4-barrels, which feed a choice Edelbrock
intake. That lightweight aluminum intake feeds lightweight aluminum
heads, which stack fabricated valve covers between a polished
breather, fluid roller rockers and a requisite roller cam.
Compression gets sparked by loomed Taylor ThunderVolt plug wires,
which are sequenced to a billet MSD distributor. Spent gases exit
through coated long-tube headers. Cooling comes courtesy of a
factory radiator, which is teamed with a polished cap, corrugated
hoses, a polished expansion tank and a big Derale puller fan.
Snazzy March serpentine components spin a polished alternator
opposite a polished AC compressor. And both performance and
appearance are on point, with billet tanks, polished sticks and a
deep-sump oil pan rounding out the details.
Bottom-side, a tough A833 4-speed kicks a spry Chrysler 8.75-inch
axle that, naturally, is built with 3.31 gears and a Sure-Grip
differential. That proven drivetrain pushes a fully rebuilt factory
suspension that's been reinforced with boxed subframe connectors.
Turns come courtesy traditional power steering. Familiar Wilwood
calipers milk a Wilwood master cylinder to cinch a quartet of
drilled and slotted rotors. A thrill-inducing soundtrack fills
3-inch pipes, which thread throaty Flowmaster mufflers on their way
to polished, side-exit tips. At the corners, handsome Rocket Racing
Boosters spin 245/40ZR18 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs in front of
285/40ZR18 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs. And everything under this sweet
MoPar has been primed to show just as well as it goes!
LEATHER AND FLAMES!
Swing the doors and you'll find an attractive custom interior that,
albeit plush, still maintains all the street slaying integrity of
this Plymouth's muscle car roots! Front-and-center, modern bucket
seats wear a sweet combination of French-stitched suede and
leather. A wrapped and stitched dash frames classy AutoMeter Carbon
Fiber Ultra-Lite telemetry, which makes excellent use of quality
Ron Francis wiring. A custom, full-length console, dressed in
Lamborghini orange and spiced with silver flames, founds a short
Pistol Grip Shifter behind Southern Rods air conditioning and
modern Pioneer audio. Premium California Carpet contrasts bright
pedals between customized side panels that feature suede inserts.
The driver spins a Forever Sharp Billet Muscle Wheel around a
painted, tilting column. And, as you would expect, the car's clean
trunk features a full array of custom upholstery.
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
