1969 Plymouth Barracuda 340 "S" - 4SPD- ALL NUMBERS MATCHINGI've owned this car since 1988 when it was purchased at the recommendation of a good friend who is the best mechanic north of Smoky Yunick's garage. I only drove the car on occasional weekends in Alabama until 1992 due to a reassignment from St. Louis to Seattle (Federal Agent) and did not start driving it again until about 3 years ago. The car was garaged after the repaint in 1998 due to fuel tank problems. I detailed the engine bay about 3 years ago, rebuilt the brakes with new drums, pistons and DOT 5 fluid. The fuel tank and sending unit were replaced. I replaced the Dual Point distributor (saved) with a rebuilt unit which was defective. My friend identified the problem and installed the Mopar electronic ignition as shown in pics. We've installed an electric choke "Edelbrock" 600 cfm carb to make it start and run correctly (original Carter AVS saved). Only a "quick and dirty" cleanup was done in order to take pictures and get the car listed. There are some small things that need attention since no car sits around for this long without needing "just a few more things". The car is reliable and a blast to drive AND runs better than it ever did! The Hurst shifter works well and the car just needs to be driven.
All the chrome: bumpers, wheels, exhaust tips is in great shape and will clean up. The vinyl is excellent except for the split along the stitching in the right seat. All the vinyl is serviceable and could use cleaning and coating. The small things are enjoyable to do, as all the major lifting has been done.
I'm selling this car as I have three other Barracudas, which include another '69 Cuda 340 S with automatic, AC, pwr steering etc. And THAT ONE is more suitable for a 70 year old than the adrenaline producer heart stopper this one is. I have both a suitable flatbed or an enclosed trailer to transport the car. PLEASE CALL ME at (256) 734-5078 for any questions you may have about car condition, payment and delivery options. If you text me I'll return the call as soon as possible. The car can be inspected if you know someone local near Cullman AL. I'll be driving up to St. Louis for a few days to get my house sale ready but will be able to return to allow someone to inspect the car.
If you're reading this far, you know how rare this unmolested, numbers matching, muscle car is. It was minimally outfitted and engineered for the sole purpose of going quickly from a dead stop...and for cruising and showing off. I just never found the time, so it's time to move on. I'm searching for Galen Gauvier's website and will try to come up with production numbers and those still known to exist. If anyone can help me, please feel free to do so with the numbers.
