True Survivor! 1974 Plymouth Barracuda. Started to restore, all original, 2 owner local car. Most all mechanical work has been done and I have receipts for all. Motor rebuilt, purple shaft cam, added 4 barrel and stock intake,Flowmasters, dual exhaust, new brakes, front end rebuild, shocks, original trans professionally rebuilt, have all parts that were removed from car and have been labeled and stored. Interior is all original, seats are ripped and faded, plastic panels need replaced too. Dash is cracked in several places, I removed headliner. Console is excellent, no holes in floor, new carpet was put in as I drive car occasionally until getting the body done. All original date coded glass in excellent condition. Jack instructions sticker is faded, but in place from factory. When engine was being rebuilt, I had the engine bay professionally repainted the stock "Y5 Yellow Blaze" color. Body has never been worked on. I have 2 new rear quarter patch panels purchased from Stephens Performance as well as a dual exhaust rear valance for the car. New trunk mat also. Minor rust in rockers, rust through on lower rear quarters. Grill is there but cracked in many places. Trunk has minor rust through. Trunk lid and roof paint actually shine pretty good. Cars runs excellent but is not driven enough. Sounds great too. I have original 2 barrel and intake as well as every part removed from car when I started restoration. I have run out of money and time to finish it and have other needs right now. Have build sheet,(was under seat), drove the car home when I bought it in a small town in Arkansas. I am a survivor nut, and I bought the car to restore to original but still drive while doing so. Decided to have motor rebuilt but changed things to be more like a stock 340- 4 barrel car. I have all info on what was done. Kind of hard to let it go. Was owned by State Trooper who I bought it from. Was a local car in his home town about 60 miles from mine. I have owned it for about 10 years now. Too much to explain, but would be happy to talk on phone with any serious inquiries. Call Joe 501-984-2696 Car is for sale locally so I reserve the right to end auction early. Will consider trade or trade + cash for a 69' Road Runner survivor/driver quality??? (That's what I really want to find someday...sold mine in HS and still not over it) LOL

The old saying goes that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. But being a criminal can involve more than just taking a trip to the big house; it can also mean losing possessions purchased from any ill-gotten gains. Still, one man's loss is another's gain, and if you're in Lodi, NJ, on September 12, you stand the chance to buy some of the ultimate muscle cars from the US Marshals in what is being gruesomely nicknamed the Blood Muscle auction.

The grisly moniker was earned because all of the vehicles belonged to the president of a blood testing company who is facing prison time for alleged bribery, according to Hemmings. After all, they are muscle cars bought with actual blood money. The seven-vehicle collection includes some of the ultimate muscle cars ever made, and the original buyer clearly had an eye for rarity.
This cornucopia of V8 power includes a teal 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429, a 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang, an orange 1970 Plymouth Superbird, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible and perhaps most prized of all - a trio of 1969 Yenko Chevys with a Chevelle, Nova and Camaro all represented. From the included photos, all of them look to be in fantastic condition.
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.

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.
