Plymouth Barracuda 1967 on 2040-cars
Castroville, Texas, United States
Offered is a completely restored 67 Plymouth Barracuda fastback. This was the second series of the Barracuda body style (Mopar A body) and was new in 1967. It was larger than the previous model - to accommodate larger engines and better suspensions - along with more interior space and updated dash/gauges. This particular car is a fully loaded model equal to the Formula S top of the line model but without the S badges. It is a numbers matching car. It has factory a/c (which still works just fine), has disc brakes (front), has the upgraded AM radio. Is an automatic. The engine is a fully rebuilt 273 V8 with 4 bbl carb (edelbrock). It was rebuilt with hydraulic lifters, new cam, new valves, heads made new again, has upgraded EGGE high dome pistons - that match the original high performance Mopar type. Also upgraded to a fully electronic ignition system by Mopar. New fuel pump, new oil pump, new water pump, new aluminum Champion custom radiator. Front end has new bushings, new roll bar, new shocks, pitman arm, ball joints, etc. Rear has been upgraded from a 7 1/4 differential to a heavy duty 8 3/4 (741 year correct type), with a 3.23 ring/pinion. Bolt pattern is A body standard 5 X 4", or called small bolt. Wheels are Cragars S/S (08/61) and are 14 X 6 size. Tires are new BFG double red lines, size 205R70 X 14. Two extra, unmounted red line tires of same size included in sale. New brakes. Interior is fully replica interior from Legendary. It is wine red seats and door panels with black carpet and black headliner and rear storage. Instrument panel is a new - Mopar certified, with all working gauges. Upper dash just like new. The automatic is a column shift style. Even the brake and accelerator pads are upgraded to the chrome edged style. All the chrome is in great condition - bumpers new, bumper guards new, etc. New windshield with NEW front and rear window factory correct, for 1967, gaskets. These are a one year only type gasket and took me three years to finally get both. New gas tank and sending unit, with newly restored gas gauge. This is a great driving and riding car. Few of these are around anymore. It is the original factory correct color it came in - PP1 Red. It has both the 67 center racing stripe and the 69 side stripes ( always liked both). Trunk has new gasket and has also been upgraded on the inside, has fold down panel for more storage access. Dual exhaust (true dual) with Flowmaster 40 mufflers. Has factory replica 24 series, green cap battery, correct for the engine type and model year. Engine also has correct high performance valve covers, air cleaner, wires, driver side exhaust wire shield, etc. A/C has new vacuum control unit installed and control panel refurbished. Lots of money and time into this car. Paint job alone is 8 coats, high gloss (just like original) deep shine. Am third owner, car originally bought in Houston, grew up in Arlington. Based on the paperwork I have believe the mileage shown to be actual miles. Have original build sheet and other paperwork - including the 'cert' card. Have no pressure to sell so not in a hurry, asking price way below spent money. Trade, i.e. car/truck with $ might be considered, Mopar preferred.

'71 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible sells for $3.5M [w/video]Mon, 16 Jun 2014
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.
'Blood Muscle' auction to sell impressive collection of ill-begotten classic carsWed, 30 Jul 2014
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.
Barrett-Jackson 2014: 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird passes half a million dollarsSat, 18 Jan 2014
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.
