1967 Formula S Plymouth Barracuda - Redefining Mopar muscle cars
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.
Enjoy the Ride,

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
