When you see an ad for a car like this Barn Find 1966 Barracuda, it makes the hair on your neck stand up. And when you read the ad, look at the photos, and realize what’s been done to this thing it makes you smile. And why not? It has all the good stuff, like a Hurst shifted 4-speed, Holley equipped small block, Hooker fender well headers, and more. And it’s got the perfect look. It would almost be scary to wash it, but we would. We’d wash it, fix the engine, make it all run with as little cosmetic impact as possible, and then head straight to the drag strip with it to have some fun. Can you imagine this sucker with just a little help underneath? Man it would be fun. Check it out.
Here is all the info from the seller:
This is a nice old Muscle Car that needs to be restored or just cleaned up and driven, more information will be available as we scour over the car for info, 75,982 original miles, very limited production here VIN # BP23D62548875 . The last registration was 1995, so it’s been off the road for 20 years.
Not running, we believe it has a thrown rod, engine will not turn over, it will roll back and forth but will not turn all the way through more pictures and info available upon request.
Not gonna find many around like this, its all here. Glass, knobs, trim etc.
Russ Simmons tells me that this car originally came from the factory with a small block 273, with an after market intake, valve covers and “bitchin” 70’s custom fender well headers that look like a tarantula under the hood, as well as a Hurst shifter. Further investigation reveals that engine vin# is 2780980-340-1, so I would think that it is safe to say at some point a “340” has been dropped into this Cuda. We are checking into a complete crate engine right now, we might just go ahead and put a motor in this carcass and bring it back to life. Maybe get these Cragars spinning again??
Currently DMV NONOP’D

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME IN READING THE AD, AND THINKING ABOUT THIS REALLY COOL OLD MUSCLE CAR.
