1968 Plymouth Barracuda 426 Hemi Under the Hood
www.e-motorclassics.com Hemi Engine History A Chrysler Hemi engine is one of three different internal combustion engine families from the Chrysler Corporation that are Hemi engines; in other words, they utilize a hemispherical combustion chamber. A hemispherical cylinder head allows the valves to be inline rather than side-by-side, which gives a straighter, simpler airflow path, allows large valves, and gives greater efficiency. The hemi design places the sparkplug in the center, giving more even ignition. The advantages of the hemi cylinder head come at the disadvantage of requiring intake and Exhaust valve stems that point in different directions, requiring much more complicated rocker arm setups in overhead valve engines. These also increase the space taken up by the cylinder head; Hemi engines are not space-efficient. The hemispherical head designed engines were the first engines in 1964 to officially use the "Hemi" name, a word Chrysler trademarked. All Chrysler Hemi engines of the 1960s displaced 426 in³ (7.0 L). Although just 11,000 Hemi engines were produced for consumer sale, the engine became legendary, with "Hemi" becoming one of the most familiar automobile-related words in the United States. The 426 Hemi was nicknamed the "elephant engine" at the time, a reference to its far-from-compact dimensions and extraordinary power.





1967 Formula S Plymouth Barracuda - Mopar
This black 1967 Formula S Plymouth Barracuda is a driver's car and owner John Rocks proudly displays it at local car shows. John refers to his work as a restofication, meaning that it may not be a number 1 show car but it looks almost as good as new. John is an expert in Mopars and ells the story about how he worked on Mopars as a young man and we show pictures of his original 1967 convertible Plymouth Barracuda. We also get a peak at his white 1967 Plymouth Barracuda coupe. The contrast of these two cars sitting side by side is pretty special. Hang in there and take an afternoon drive with John as he shows off the cornering performance of his black Formula S Plymouth Barracuda. The white Barracuda is not too happy about it but you can only drive one car at a time. This video includes the use of a camera jib (crane) for some incredibly smooth shots. The use of the GoPro was a learning experience as this was the first time we used it to capture some scenes of John and his car speeding around corners. This is one videographer that had to hold on tight and some of the footage was not usable as I went flying around in my seat.
