(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!
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,

1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda - Fast & Furious 6 Cars
1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda - Fast & Furious 6 Cars. Visit:
Some cars are just too nice to send flying through the air to a crunching
doom. Take this 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda, which is wicked awesome from the
air cleaner atop its stupendous 540-cubic-inch (8.8-liter) old-school Hemi
to the all-independent rear suspension. So how did this stunning machine
find itself amid the destruction of Fast & Furious 6?
Simple. It isn't a movie car.
Instead, this showcar was borrowed from a collection called Autotopia that
happens to be located in a building directly across the alley from picture
car coordinator Dennis McCarthy's shop. It is owned by Erik Davis, who is
president of RT Specialty Insurance in Los Angeles and who races a Mustang in the Pirelli World
Challenge series under the Always Evolving Performance (AE Performance)
It's only seen in the final shots of the film, when Dominic Toretto's ad
hoc family gathers together at a house familiar to hard-core Fast & Furious
fans going back to the original 2001 film, The Fast and the Furious. So
there was no need to build duplicates.
Sorry, is that a spoiler? Really? You didn't know that Dom survives to the
end and winds up in a bitchin' Mopar?
The Real Thing
Built by Dave Salvaggio of Salvaggio Automotive Design in Port Washington,
Wisconsin, this 'Cuda is overstuffed with virtually every trick known to
Mopar man. But those tricks are all subtle. Like the instrumentation that
is set into a carbon-fiber panel and uses white faces, but retains the
original font and design of each gauge. And then there's the pistol-grip
shifter atop the Tremec six-speed manual transmission that has been remade
in carbon fiber — as if it were for a much better gun.
Even the leather-covered seats are Mopar parts. Swiped as they are from a
But what's not subtle is the engine. That's an Arruzza-built,
aluminum-headed elephant engine capped by twin four-barrel carburetors. It
incorporates a beautifully machined and polished aluminum plate on the
front that uses a single serpentine belt to drive the alternator, A/C
compressor and power steering pump. And the entire engine bay is so
heartbreakingly beautiful it makes you want to rip off the car's hood.
Likely the single most ambitious element in this car is the suspension. The
front suspension's original torsion bars and A-arms have been dumped in
favor of fabricated pieces and coil-over shocks.
Out back, the crummy leaf springs have vanished. In their place is a Jaguar
center section with inboard Wilwood disc brakes and fabricated links that
form a robust structure. There should be a hole in the trunk floor to
provide better views of it.
There's nothing that isn't interesting about the 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda.
And nothing that's been left untouched.
Thanks to 235/45R17 front and 305/45R18 rear Nitto red-striped tires on
Fikse wheels, this Plymouth Barracuda has a slight rake and its nose is
almost burrowing into the ground. There are many subtle body modifications
(like re-contoured wheelwells) but, again, the whole car is constrained by
a respect for Mopar heritage.
So while it's Hemi powered, it's actually decorated like the 340-powered
AAR 'Cuda that was built to homologate components for SCCA Trans Am road
racing. The big engine seems to almost be bursting up into the cavity made
by the AAR hood scoop. That's kind of cool. But not as truly icy as the
AAR-inspired dual side Exhausts that
exit just below each door's trailing edge.
The mix of gloss and matte black paint is sinister, consistent with the
'Cuda's themes, and intensely badass.
While the 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda's appearance in Fast & Furious 6 is
basically a cameo, Fast & Furious 7 is already in production and aiming for
a summer 2014 release. If that movie picks up where this one lets off, this
'Cuda (and/or its stunt-ready clones) is sure to show up then.

I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1968 Plymouth Barracuda
S. It's powered by a nicely detailed 340 V8 topped with a Holley aluminum
intake and a Demon four barrel carb. They also add a nice set of coated
headers while they were at it. This little thing should really run. I hope
you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

1970 Plymouth Barracuda
The Plymouth Barracuda is a two-door car that was manufactured by the
Plymouth division of the Chrysler Corporation from 1964--1974. The
1970--1974 E-body Barracuda, no longer Valiant-based, was available as a
coupe and a convertible, both of which were very different from the
The final model year for the Barracuda was 1974. In 1970, the E-body
Barracuda was "able to shake the stigma of 'economy car'." Three versions
were offered for 1970 and 1971: the base Barracuda (BH), the luxury
oriented Gran Coupe (BP), and the sport model 'Cuda (BS).
This beautiful 'Cuda had a body-off restoration 10 years ago. This car
originally came with a 383ci motor.

65 Mustang Fastback Restoration Project
This is my 1965 Mustang
Fastback I rescued from a field rusting away. I finished it around July of
2008 in my back yard garage with no professional assistance at all. It took
me about 26 months to complete. It has a 302 Ford motor and an 5 Speed
manual transmission. I restored this car to the information on the original
data plate on the door that included the body color and interior. The
stripe is unique in that I added a darker red to the Poppy Red body color
to get a stripe that is a little darker but blends in with the factory
color. This car features four wheel disc brakes made from all Ford parts.
1972 Plymouth 'Cuda Restoration Process
A 1972 Plymouth 'Cuda Restoration Process. 340 Automatic. 10 to 1
compression. This car was the dream of Dan Wells to complete, but he died
of a rare blood disease before it was completed. Every year there is a
poker run in his memory to raise money for local people that are suffering
from other rare diseases and there is a scholarship that is given out to a
Centralia student that wishes to further his education in the automotive
industry. To see full pictures go to www.deansbodyshop.com
