(Restoration of a 1967 Plymouth Barracuda) PROJECT FISH - PART 01
Outside of my airsoft hobby, I have this one. "Muscle" cars. Funny, in THIS generation, it is called "muscle" cars..... Way back then, it was just a car.....
Maybe this generation discerns the difference between "ricer", "rice burner", "tuners", "classic car" and "muscle cars".
This is my friends 1967 Plymouth Barracuda. It will be a LOW COST, ground-up restoration. No media blasting, not even sand blasting. Cannot afford that "luxury". I will be using various ways to remove the old paint, and spot checking for rust holes.
Part one is rust check and paint removal. As well as showing the small block 340 that will go in the car affter we prep and paint the "engine compartment.....
This is the first of MANY videos that will span the course of over one year!

If you look up Vanguard Motor Sales in a thesaurus, one of the first words you might find is "Mopar". That's because we've spent the few years bringing Mopar fans the greatest array of exceptional cars ever offered for sale. This stunning purple Supercharged 1968 Plymouth Barracuda continues that tradition and presents you, the serious collector, with yet another chance to expand your collection.
This Cuda went through an extensive restoration in 2007. The solid metal body is straight, clean and rust free. There is no bondo, no waves and no ripples. After all that hard work, the car was sprayed with its beautiful purple metallic paint. The result is a fantastically straight Cuda that looks like it could have rolled out of Dodge Main yesterday. Panel gaps, door and trunk lips and margins are exceptional, the doors and trunk open and close with very little effort and the cars deep purple metallic paint has little to no defects or wear. All of the chrome and stainless is equally as nice.
The first thing you will notice under the hood is that Paxton Supercharger, attached to the 340ci motor. The casting number on the motor is 2780930-340. Turnbuckle ties are holding this baby down. Once you get past that sweet looking Supercharger, you will see that this Cuda also is wearing a MSD Ignition, a remote oil filter, breather canister and an Optima battery. There are coated headers as well. Make no mistake; this car runs just as well today as it did when it rolled into the dealership in 1970 and it's one of the few muscle cars that can still run with the best from Detroit.
The bottom of the car has been well taken care of as well. Matched up to that 340 Supercharged motor, is a 4-speed transmission, which shifts awesome. The casting number for the trans is 99129, and there is another stamp with # 9B327429. There is a posi-traction rear end, with what we believe to be 3:50 gears. There are some minor repairs in both driver side and passenger side rockers and one small patch on the floorboard, all of which have been done extremely well. There is no rust to be found, the undercarriage of this Cuda is solid! A new stainless steel gas line and new gas tank were included in the restoration, as well as a Flowmaster Exhaust system (2.5" out back and 3" feeders). Cross drilled rotors and front disc brakes keep this Cuda between the lines. The upper control arms are tubular, there are new spindles and eurethane bushings on the radius arms. The front fenders have no signs of repairs, they look to be original metal. Sitting on all four corners are 17" Billet wheels and BF Goodrich G-Force tires.
Inside the car has been completely restored and features beautiful white upholstery, and headliner. Sitting between the bucket seats is a beautiful console and Hurst shifter. In front of the driver is a stunning wood Grant steering wheel and a set of Auto-Meter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite gauges. In the center of the dash there is a Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo system, which sounds great, and underneath that is a duo of aftermarket gauges. All of the interior lights work and the black carpet is in beautiful shape. The fold-down back seat gives plenty of extra storage for your cooler and folding chairs. This car is ready for a summer cruise, and the local car show!
This is a rare, Supercharged 340 Cuda that is 100% complete inside and out. Nothing has been left unrestored and the Cuda is guaranteed to please even the most discerning collector, as a center piece to any Mopar or classic car collection. Call today! We are available 7 Days a week 248-974-9513
AAR Cuda Mopar 340 TA Engine block
In 1969-1970 Chrysler made a special 340 engine for the AAR Cuda and the T/A Challenger. These engines were different than a standard 340 used in other Mopars. The TA engines had the designation embossed on the block, driver side. If you're buying a TA 340 also check the heads by removing the oil cap on the passenger side. With the cap off look inside and the rear rocker should be offset. You may need a flashlight to see it.
If you scattered the original engine you may have received a standard 340 replacement block. I've heard stories both ways. My buddy back in 1970 went through 3 warranty transmissions before they said enough.
Some of the later blocks which were left over made their way into 1971 340 Road Runners and other cars. If you're looking at a 340, look closely because the TA340 are still around.
I hope you enjoy the video and it helps you.
Triple Black Attack: 1970 440 6-Pack 'Cuda - BIG MUSCLE
Each and every muscle car enthusiast has that one experience that has helped define the way in which they view the automobile. For Northern California's John Cross that experience came by way of riding in the back of his cousins 1970 440 6-Pack Plymouth 'Cuda when he was a kid. It was a car that provided him with memories, stories and of course, a goal - that being, to one day own the very car which got his engine running all those years ago. It's now 2012, 42 years after that first faithful ride in the very 'Cuda you're about to see. This time however it resides in John's garage, not his cousins, which can mean only one thing... Sometimes dreams do come true.

~ 1967 Dodge Coronet Start Up ~ Hughes Whiplash Cam ~ 440 Mopar ~
'67 Dodge Coronet, 440 Big Block Mopar, 518 lift cam. I chose my cam cause I found that Barracuda with the 340 I believe that ran it with great results and I gotta say... Nothing but good news big block wise, this cam has one hell of a sound PLUS it really performs! Will be going racing this weekend so we'll see what kinda 1/4 mile times it'll shoot out.
Thanks Hughes Engines, Manton Pushrods, and 440 Source. The only 3 stickers on my side window!!
