The Plymouth Barracuda was marketed against Mustangs, Camaros and Firebirds.
This car is equipped with a 273 cubic-inch Chrysler's 'Commando' V8 engine with 10.5:1 compression ratio, solid lifters and produces 235 horsepower. The car is equipped with a heavy duty front torsion bar, rear spring suspension and front and rear anti-sway bars.
The engine and transmission were built in 1998 with the body also being restored at that time. A reproduction of the original exhaust system, including an original type muffler and exhaust resonator, were also installed.
The car also includes upgraded electronic ignition, gas shocks and period correct Cragger 'S/S Wheels'.
It has the original 'wood-grain' steering wheel and an original style exhaust system, unique to the Commando engine. The suspension has been upgraded and '14' mag wheels and tires were installed.
The rear glass was the largest single piece of glass used in a US production car at the time. For safety reasons, the original lap belts were replaced with modern 3-point shoulder/lap belts.Also photographed at :
