If you wanted the baddest fish on the street in 1968, a car like this
killer Barracuda Formula S would've been the ideal purchase. Dressed in a
low key color, with a 383 under the hood, this fully restored 55,128-actual
mile A-body is the kind of big-motor-small-car situation that puts a smile
on any gearhead's face. One of approximately 395 to have an
automatic-backed 383, it also has the rarity factor.
The subject of a lengthy restoration, the Ember Gold paint shows well with
a glossy surface free of any major blemishes. Underneath that paint, the
body is arrow straight without a bad angle in sight. Panel fitment is above
average and the car exudes the kind of quality you'd expect from a top
Ornamentation was kept minimal with only 383 S hood inserts and fender
badges hinting that this car is more than a 318 grocery getter. The
stainless trim is clean and dent free and the glasswork looks great for its
Pop the hood and you'll find a potent 383cid V8 conservatively rated at
300hp. While not the original block, it's the correct engine for the car
and looks factory fresh thanks to some attention to detail on behalf of the
builders. From the Mopar battery to the correct wiper motor, every piece
appears authentic. The car starts easily and sounds great through cast iron
Exhaust manifolds and an OEM style
dual Exhaust system featuring Pypes
Underneath the car, body matched floors serve as the backdrop to a rebuilt
stock suspension consisting of torsion bars up front and parallel leafs out
back. In the center, the original A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic
shifts with authority, channeling power down to the 8 3/4-inch
differential. Steering is manual as is braking which utilizes discs up
front and drums in the rear. A set of body-matched steel wheels wrapped in
BFG Radial T/A's finish off the cars no B.S. look.
Open the doors and a restored black vinyl interior awaits. Despite its
compact classification, the Barracuda is a surprisingly comfortable place
to spend time. The black bucket seats not only look great but provide the
kind of support that makes long drives bearable. From the carpet to the
headliner, nearly everything looks showroom fresh.
Regardless if you're into rare Mopars, sleepers, or just engine bays
stuffed with big motors, this '68 Barracuda Formula S has something to
offer nearly every enthusiast. If you're ready to hit the streets in one of
the unspoken heroes of the pony car world, don't miss the chance to make
this A-body yours. Call, click or visit http://rkmotorscharlotte.com for

Launch RPM Limit
Here I try to find out how far I can set the RPM limiter for launching the
car. Turns out that the 2500 RPM that I had it set to was already at the
very limits of the holding power of the brakes.
LMC Super Cuda 200 MPH!

Lady Luck was on our side last week as the Legendary Team made its way to
the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea, Michigan.
An all night drive through a snow storm saw us pull into the proving
grounds parking lot at the crack of dawn. It was cold and overcast but no
sign of rain or snow. It looked like the weather would cooperate, the next
hurdle was having MOPAR engineers check out the Cuda. The car passed with
flying colors, testament to the sweat and dedication put in by everyone at
Legendary over the last year.
Then it was off to the black lake for some real world handling tests in
preparation for the 4.75 mile oval and a crack a breaking the 200 mph mark.
Both the Cuda and the Enzo look impressive on the track but once the sun
began to come out late that morning the setting was perfect for our high
speed run. I think we captured some spectacular footage of a once in a life
After a brief mishap, when the Cuda lost its windshield trim at 190 mph,
Peter was ready to go. We could hear the Cuda coming long before we could
see her, as the cars went by they sounded like jet fighters. Top speed 208
mph with still some leftwe did it!
