1967 Plymouth Barracuda Project Car. on 2040-cars
Afton, Wyoming, United States
Gear up, because it is almost time for the show and swap meet season; which means buying parts for your Mopar. And if you don't have a project (Mopar) this is the best time of the year to buy and start a project. I know most people like to wait until winter, but when the sun is shining and the temperature starts to rise; it's car season and nothing is better than old Mopars. This week I plan on listing THREE Mopars on Ebay. A 71 #"s 383 Charger 500. And a 72 "Petty Blue" Satellite Sebring Plus 40,xxx mile big block "Survivor"(It's amazing). But the first is this sweet 1967 Barracuda body/roller/builder. It is missing quite a bit but is a very solid builder with a great foundation for a "resto-mod" or a drag car. The previous owner was trying to mock up an overdrive 518 and cut out the trans mission tunnel and a section of the cross member; that is the worst of it. There is rust, mostly just needs patching. No frame rot or other serious problems. All of the glass is in good shape. Partial interior, no front fenders, grille, bumper or header panel. I do and will include a fiberglass Formula hood.
Please take time to look at the pictures and feel free to ask as many questions as you wish. Have a great year and thanks for looking.

Before Chrysler had Street and Racing Technology, it had Performance Vehicle Operations. What the two entities have in common, before SRT became its own brand, of course, is that each was created to take Chrysler and Dodge (and Plymouth, before it was unceremoniously killed off) vehicles to the next level of style and performance.

We'll leave the question of whether or not the old Plymouth (and later Chrysler) Prowler was ultimately a stylish, performance-oriented car to you, but the boys and girls currently leading the SRT charge at the Pentastar headquarters are keen to accept the retro-rod into the fold.
According to the automaker, all of SRT's current high-performance models owe a debt of gratitude to the old Prowler, due mostly to that car's use of lightweight bits and pieces and innovative construction techniques. If nothing else, the fact that the Prowler's frame is "the largest machined automotive part in history" is pretty cool. Read all the details here.
The Plymouth Superbird is one of those classic American cars from the muscle car era that has captured the imagination of all sorts of automotive enthusiasts long after its presence on roads and race tracks wore away. It's easy to see why. Where else but in the Swingin' Sixties and Seventies would a car leave the factory with an aerodynamics package that included a pointy beak and a rear spoiler that sat several feet above the rear deck?

The example you see above, which was born in 1970, is one of the finest Superbirds we've ever seen. Combine its complete restoration with its original 426 Hemi engine, and it's no surprise that it managed to bring in a cool half million dollars (plus 10 percent in fees) at Barrett-Jackson. See it yourself in our high-res image gallery above, and scroll down below for the official auction description.

We're plenty used to seeing classic cars selling for millions of dollars. It's just that they're usually European: Ferraris, Bugattis, Mercedes and the like. There are some rare American exceptions, usually wearing the names Duesenberg or Shelby. But what we have here is the most expensive Chrysler product ever sold at auction.
The vehicle in question is a Plymouth Barracuda - specifically a 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible, chassis #BS27R1B315367 - that Mecum Auctions just sold after eight solid minutes of feverish bidding for a high bid of $3.5 million at its auction in Seattle, Washington. That figure positively eclipses the $2.2 million paid for a strikingly similar Hemi Cuda (chassis #BS27R1B269588) fetched nearly seven years ago in Scottsdale and another that was the first muscle car to break the million-dollar mark in 2002.
