Chrysler introduced the 3rd generation Barracuda in 1970. The
all-new model was built on a shorter, wider version of Chrysler's
existing B-platform and was called the E-Body. This '73 Barracuda
was fully restored in 2015 and has been well cared for since. Per
its data tag, the 'Cuda was factory equipped with a 318ci 'LA'
(E44) engine and 3-speed automatic transmission (D34), but
according to the owner (7 years) it is now powered by a MOPAR 440ci
RB-series motor that was donated by a '71 Barracuda.
Originally finished in Autumn Bronze Metallic, (GK6), this 'Cuda
received a professional 2-stage respray of Spinnaker White that is
in very good condition. Accents include Matte Black finish on the
340 'Cuda hood along with chrome Magnum 500 style 15" alloys that
mount ProTrac-60 performance radials. A refreshed interior includes
new ProCar front bucket seats, dash pad, rear seat upholstery,
carpeting and headliner. A complete set of AutoMeter gauges w/tach
was fitted and a multi-speaker aftermarket sound system has been
installed, but currently needs TLC. A correct E-body 'Hurst pistol
grip' shifter is married to Brewer's Performance shift linkage.
Other new components include the heater box, weatherstripping, door
latches/handles, tinted windshield and front/rear wiring
The cast iron 440 'Wedge' was rebuilt to stock specs with new
bearings, rings/seals and Milodon oil pump. It is fitted with an
Edelbrock Air-Gap intake manifold, dual-feed 750cfm Holley carb and
CompCam w/.525 lift/305 duration. Lifters and rockers are new and
an electronic ignition provides fire. Exhaust exits through Hooker
headers to a free-flowing 3" dia. system and an HD aluminum
radiator manages cooling. The Wedge is backed by a 4-speed manual
gearbox, new 11" flywheel/clutch assembly and 8-3/4" positraction
differential w/Richmond 3.91:1 gears/10-spline yoke. The chassis is
equipped with manual steering and 4-wheel power disc brakes w/dual
master (all new). Components of the front suspension were rebuilt,
new rear leaf springs (HD 440) were installed and (4) new KYB
shocks have been fitted. The fuel pump, fuel lines and gas tank are
also new. This is a very unique retro 'Cuda - grab the 'pistol
shifter' and hang on. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS"
