Good day, everyone!
My name is Michael, I live in sunny/rainy Costa Rica.
I've been reading this forum for quite a while, probably 2 years or something like this. A lot of you guys have done great jobs restoring your Mopars, I've truly enjoyed every hour I spent reading restoration topics, browsing pages with pictures of both finished and unfinished projects.
I've picked up a couple of ideas from several threads here on Cuda-Challenger, and I believe my own project wouldn't be possible without your work and you sharing information. So I would like to thank every one of you guys!
Ok, here is my story: about three years ago I decided to buy and restore a classic muscle to be my weekend driver. I was especially interested in only 6 production years, from 70 to 75. I always liked Barracudas, but it was very hard to find a good deal. My second choice was Duster, and I almost bought one already restored, but at the very last moment I hesitated and got out of the deal. Something didn't feel right and there I realized that the only car I wanted was Barracuda. Esthetically I liked 72 more than 70 or 71, so I started to search. After some months I found a good deal on eBay: 72 'Cuda, rebuilt 440 motor from a 70 RoadRunner, A833 4 speed manual, fair amount of rust, and the car was running.
Here are the pictures of it from eBay:
