Like rare Mopars? Sleepers? Big motors in small cars? This 1968 Barracuda Formula S manages to be all three at once. The subject of thorough restoration, the body is laser straight and looks great covered in a glossy coat of Ember Gold. Ornamentation was kept minimal with only 383 S hood inserts and fender badges hinting that this car is more than a 318 grocery getter. The stainless trim is clean and dent free and the glasswork looks great for its age. Between the fenders a potent 383 V8 provides a factory rated 300hp. Though not the original block, it is the correct engine for the car. Bathed in turquoise paint and topped by a wrinkle finish air cleaner and chrome valve covers, the bay looks as good as it runs. From the Mopar battery to the correct wiper motor, every piece appears authentic. The car starts easily and sounds great through headers and a dual exhaust system featuring Pypes mufflers. Underneath the car, body matched floors serve as the backdrop to a rebuilt stock suspension consisting of torsion bars up front and parallel leafs out back. In the center, the original A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic shifts with authority, channeling power down to the 8 3/4-inch differential. Steering is manual as is braking which utilizes discs up front and drums in the rear. A set of body-matched steel wheels wrapped in BFG Radial T/As finish off the cars no B.S. look. Open the doors and youll find a fully restored black vinyl interior with bucket seats. From carpet to headliner, the cabin presents as new. If youre ready to hit to road in the unsung hero of the pony car world, dont miss this 1968 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S.
