Mopar Of The Month June 2024:

Originally a 340 Formula S Fastback. It now has a 360 with newly rebuilt 727 Torqueflite automatic transmission. Originally It was Matador Red but is was painted Wimbledon White shorty before I purchased the car. It has all newly restored interior with factory black bucket seats and center console. The entire dash was restored to original appearance and I rewired the car from front to back. Car has a aftermarket fiberglass hood. The car also came with an original style hood when I got it but it was not painted as the fiberglass hood had already been installed. It's been upgraded to disc brakes up front and converted to big bolt pattern. It has Mopar Rally's with spinners, 15" on the rear and 14" on the front giving the car a distinctively raked stance. The grills, bumpers and rear tail trim was in poor shape, so the previous owner blacked them all out. My plan is to replace all with original brite work. This is my third Barracuda having owned a 69 fastback in high school (owned from 1988-1989) and then a 67 Formula S fastback after I returned home from military National Guard basic training and AIT (1990-1994). I purchased this car in 2023.
