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

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
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
This is a rare, Supercharged 340 Cuda that is 100% complete inside and out.
