1971 Plymouth Barracuda
1971 Plymouth Barracuda Gran Coupe. Originally equipped with a 318, it now has a 360 engine and automatic transmission. Mechanically sound, runs and drives great. My daughter regularly drives it to high school. Car is very solid and spent most of its life in California and later Arizona. Excellent candidate for a Cuda re-creation or resto mod. Interior is all original with the leather insert bucket seats, overhead console, gauges, door panels, etc. There is a dash cap over the original A/C dash and the headlight switch in the switch panel has been replaced with a "pull type" headlight switch. Turn signal switch in the steering column is currently not working, radio is missing, air conditioning is intact and has never been charged since I have owned the car. Exterior has all original panels in great shape for an unrestored car with the exception of the hood which has been changed out for a 1970 Cuda hood. Fenders and doors are solid with no rust. Even the lower door pinch welds are tight with no swelling. No rust swelling in the door jamb area either. Rear quarter panels have some rust behind the rear wheels and the right trunk extension is rusted through as well. The rear outer and inner wheel wells are absolutely solid. Trunk floor has surface rust with no holes. Car appears to have had the right side and left rear corner repainted at one time. Engine compartment is solid and dry with some minor rust bubbling ahead of the hood hinges. Inner fenders around shock tower, cowl, and radiator apron are rust free. Cowl is solid with no rust in the pinch weld. Trunk lid lip is dry with no swelling. All frame rails are rock solid. This is a very solid car that will need minimal metal work as part of the restoration. Bumpers and trim all appear to be nice original pieces. The grill has a small crack in the center near the top and is otherwise in great shape. Engine appears to have been freshened when installed. It runs well, starts every time, and doesn't burn any oil. Dual exhaust is run all the way out the back. Car has an 8-3/4 rear end. 15" BF Goodrich tires and torque thrust wheels are only a couple years old. I have a clear Wyoming title in my name. VIN, fender tag, door sticker, and all body numbers match. Please e-mail with any questions.
