1968 Plymouth Barracuda Fastback Additional Info:

1968 Barracuda Fastback – CLEAR TITLE

Just brought out of heated storage about 2 weeks ago. It has been checked over, filled with fresh fluids and race gas, pre-lubed, fired and test driven on the street.

487 hp to the rear wheels. (only 13 passes since rebuilt engine and powertrain)

Race car was built according to the Mopar Engine and Chassis books using MoPar Performance parts.

It has not been raced since 1994 but, as mentioned above, has been in heated storage for all that time. Of course, it is still stored in a dry garage, just no longer heated. The last runs posted were 11.04, 11.06 and 10.96. All at 122+ mph. Due to the time which has passed since it was last raced, I would recommend replacing all four tires and some minor updates to NHRA rules may be required. I have taken these factors into account when pricing.

I have extra parts which will go with the car. Lots of trims pieces, etc. The body has no major damage and the paint has several small scratches and minor dings but is in, overall, good shape. As the car has been raced most of its life, I don’t’ see any rust through in the normal problem areas. If you are not racer, it could be fairly easily restored back to nice street trim. Then you could sell off the race equipment to put into restoration parts. As a buyer, you have choices.
