In Torque We Trust - 1967 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S
Mr. Bob Gough's family moved to France for a few years when he was thirteen
years-old and thus he grew up idolizing European sports cars and looking
down on American muscle. That was until he discovered the 1967 Plymouth
Barracuda Formula S. The 'Cuda Formula S was upgraded in-house by Plymouth
with suspension and brakes that allow it to keep up with European sports
cars in the twisties (that is, all but the tightest twisties). He purchased
this car over twenty-three years ago and has gradually upgraded it. Bob
replaced the transmission with a Tremec 5-speed and now runs a 340 cubic
inch V8, rather than the original 273 ci engine. He's also replaced the
original 14" wheels with custom 15" steelies.
And the only suspension mod that Bob has made is replacing the original
shocks with nitrogen shocks that vastly improve the handling. The Plymouth
handles so well in fact, that he frequently surprises sports car owners on
drives. And once the curves straighten out, its ample torque allows it to
"leave Porsches behind." You do need to exercise caution entering corners
though, because the Forumla S is prone to rear wheel lock-up—so early
braking is a must! Even though Bob pushes the 'Cuda, it's actually docile
to drive, "but who drives a car like that?"
1973 Plymouth Cuda 340---70 Dodge Challenger R/T's 383 440
This video was a dedication to the 73 cuda in the beginning. It was
wrecked when a lady pulled out in front and cause the front end to fold
like a piece of paper. The insurance company took the car and sold it.
The rest of the cars are a personal collection.
Madison Auto Body did the restoration. Awesome job highly recomended.
70 Double Blown GTO
My 1970 GTO with two blowers. It's 474ci Pontiac engine with a 8-71 blower
on top of a 6-71 blower. This is from the last day of being double blown.
I'm going to one single 8-71 blower and going racing. The front clip was
removed to make it easier to work on. The reason for the double blowers was
not as a power enhancement like many ASSume. I stacked the blowers to have
a car that stood out in the crowd. Most Pro Street cars were starting to
blend together. If you seen one, you had seen them all. That wasn't the
case with this GTO. Al someone had to say was "The double blower GTO" and
people knew which car. I was told it couldn't be done, so I attempted it
and it worked. It stayed that way for almost 2 years. I knew a twin turbo setup would make more HP. I knew I could
have run a 14-71 blower and made more power. That wasn't the point. I
wanted to be different than the other cars in the parking lot, I did that
now it's time to ove on. For all those people who don't understand why,
I'm not going to try and explain it to you anymore. Get over it. I didn't
expect EVERYONE to love it. But you won't forget it.
