A fully-built 440 V8 speed machine like this should not be so affordable. So if you've looked at the motor on this 1967 Plymouth Barracuda, we already know you're hooked.
Before we dive into the beastly V8 of this Barracuda, let's appreciate the first impression this car gives off. The pillar-less hardtop is a staple of muscle car style. Plus, on the 1967 models we see the first hints at the iconic styling touches that would be exaggerated for the '70s 'Cudas – like the power bulge in the hood and the speedy line of the rear fenders. Actually, the fastback model outsold the hardtop coupes like this one in 1967, so there's even a rarity factor here. Plus, this Barracuda announces its speedy intentions from the first moment you see it thanks to the yellow paint and all that aggressive black. With the dual hood stripes, great fender accents, and even the bumpers blacked-out, this is one mean machine. But like any good American classic, there's still room for bright work. It's on everything from the trim accents to the iconic Cragar SS wheels.
Inside you get the same black and yellow combo. You have plenty of cool vintage elements, like the pillar-less hardtop profile, wood applique across the dash, and classic Plymouth steering wheel. But you also instantly know this one is built for speed. Iconic Mopar elements like the pistol-grip shifter, and modern pieces like the Procar bucket seats and auxiliary gauges combine to get your senses ready for something special under the hood.
Be prepared for shock and awe at plenty of car shows as you lift the hood and display the 440 cubic-inch big block V8. Plymouth would eventually offer the Formula S model with an optional 440 in 1969, but even that car wasn't as wicked as this one. Everything in the engine bay looks so fresh, because this monster motor was rebuilt only about 1,000 miles ago. The Heintz Brothers Performance shop did a mild port, and it has aluminum heads, sealed power domed pistons (10.4:1 compression), forged crank, fully turned & polished, new cam, new lifters, large aluminum radiator, Edelbrock Performer intake, and a huge Holley 950 CFM four-barrel carburetor on top to let this big V8 inhale deeply. So you better believe the full power package makes one heck of an intimidating rumble out of the dual exhaust. This is connected to a four-speed manual transmission to give you full control over the mighty motor and its thunderous sound. The power is then sent to the limited-slip 3.55 rear end for great take-offs. But of course power is nothing without control, and so this Barracuda comes with power steering, front disc brakes, and wide BF Goodrich T/A rubber.
Classic Mopars with a clear purpose for dominating the streets rarely are this within reach. But if you're quick enough, you can pick up this intimidating Barracuda at an affordable price. Call now!
