The Barracuda is a two-door pony car that first rolled out of Plymouth factories since 1964 and continued for an entire decade. The third-generation Barracudas were specifically based on cut-down intermediate bodies consisting of wider engine compartments that were fully equipped to house the HEMI big-block engines. The Barracuda in its essence is a true road-legal race car that had outstanding performance on the drag strip and was unusually attractive for its era thanks to the Chrysler E Body concept that it inherited. This faultless retsomod resides in California and is a perfect match for a true Barracuda lover.
This Resto-Mod build gleams in its funky green apple paint coat — a one of a kind offering that cost $16,000! Your attention is drawn to the Barracuda’s aggressive stance and features which consist of a wide split grille, twin hood scoops, classic American muscle stance, and distinctive rounded tail lights to complete the look. The car sits on a set of fresh American muscle car wheels that highlight its black and silver trimmed five-spoke rims. The interior has been refreshed, with a contrasting black finish with hints of apple green visible upon closer inspection. The cockpit houses black leather electric motor bucket seats and proudly displays its sliver Barracuda dash plaque. Chrome accents can be subtly identified on the door panels as well as the four-spoke Mopar steering wheel. Additions include an upgraded sound system housing a subwoofer and USB compatibility which is fully remote controllable.
Under the hood of the Barracuda sits 440ci 7.2L RBV8 carburetor engine capable of a scary 375 BHP at 4600 RPM controlled via an automatic transmission, which are big numbers for a street-legal American muscle car.
