1966 Plymouth Barracuda comes to life!
Start up after piecing together my father's 1966 Plymouth Barracuda Formula "S" Started like a champ, 80psi oil pressure cold idle, 900 rpm. It's a good day! First time it moves under it's own power since put into long term storage in April 1978.

1966 Plymouth Barracuda Startup, 273 V8
The first fire-up of Mike's new 66 Barracuda after getting it home. Just took a fresh battery and a little shot of ether, and it's running pretty nice. 273 V8, 2bbl, automatic.
My Old 1966 Plymouth Barracuda
This is a video of me and my dad getting the old Plymouth Barracuda started after years of sitting out in the barn. I bought this 1966 Barracuda in 1987, did all the paint and bodywork to make it very nice, and ended up selling it to my sister for $500 when I moved out of state. As you can see, sitting outside in the Colorado weather, and a few accidents have taken their toll on the old Plymouth Barracuda, but the big 360 inch V8 still wants to run. My son took a ride with me and thought it was really dangerous. He calls it "The Jagged Car." It makes me sad to see how run-down the old Barracuda is now. I hope I've aged a little bit better than my car.
