Description

273 COMMANDO V8, AUTO, PS, FRNT DISC, LOTS OF HISTORCAL DOCS, MUSEUM GRADE MOPAR

Chrysler upped their game to help the 1965 Plymouth Barracuda compete with Ford's Mustang. The Formula S package gave Plymouth its first V8 pony car status. So it's great to have a well-priced tribute that has had investments in shiny paint, an upgraded A/C interior, and the original V8.

There's nothing else on the road that looks like an early Barracuda. It has that massive wrap-around rear window (largest ever of its era), and crisp creases along the tops of the fenders. The sporty design was Plymouth's first shot in pony car wars. This one was restored in 2016, and it included a respray of the factory-correct copper bronze metallic paint. It's an alluring color with a modern shine that really highlights the good sheetmetal. For those few who know their Formula S coupes, this tribute does not disappoint. It has the right details like the aggressive full-length triple stripe, correct badging, and super shiny upgraded wheel package.

The Barracuda had a true sporty design, and this black interior shows it off perfectly. There has been a solid investment in this restoration, and you see it on the crisp bucket seats with the factory's cool intricate pattern (you can feel it tickle your back as you slip behind the wheel.) Your left hand goes on the thin sports steering wheel, and your right one rests on the center console shift lever. As you look across the dashboard, the sea of black is artfully broken up by plenty of stainless and chrome that's on everything from the heat/defrost controls, to the original AM radio... so this really has a great look of originality. But you also have some nice upgrades. It ranges from performance pieces (like the AutoMeter tach) to comfort features (like the R134a air conditioning.)

The top Barracudas received the 273 cubic-inch Commando V8. This motor is original to the car, and it was rebuilt about two years ago as part of the comprehensive restoration. So not only does it look fantastically fresh in the painted engine bay, but as a true Formula S tribute, it's now topped by a four-barrel carburetor. Plus, the V8 has a performance camshaft and low restriction exhaust to really let it compete with the HiPo Mustangs. The original TorqueFlite three-speed automatic transmission was also rebuilt during restoration. And it has an updated front end, power steering, and front disc brakes. So this feels like a true premium Formula S on the road.

Complete with the original warranty card, owner's manual, and info on its time as a museum piece (yes, it looks that good,) this is a well-presented and distinct Mopar that's priced within reach. So don't let this one leave your grasp, call today!!!
