WELCOME, and if that lil car is all original you have found an "Indiana Jones" trophy as far as muscle cars are concerned, a little ahead of it's day on the street, the 1967 440's and of course Hemi models would only excede it as far as collection status. You better be on your knees son, CONGRATULATIONS !  :thumbs: And you better marry that girfriend, before "daddy" decides to keep it for himself, lol.

Haha, thanks man.  Every time one of you guys talk sabout it I just wish I was back home working on that car!     :beer:  Now that you mention it, I'd better grab that thing b efore anybody else realises what she is. :outtahere:  Yes, I will marry that girl, she's got good taste.  Not to mention she's pumped about me restoring this car so she can go to shows and ride around in it with me. 8)

Haha, I don't think I need anything alleviated. ;D

So any idea as to what a pristine one of these might be worth?  I noticed that '66's were only worth about $16k.  I don't think I'd sell it, though.

if you can get us either the VIN number off the upper part of your dash on the driver's side or your fender tag numbers (driver's side as well under the hood on the inner engine bay fender)

when did they move from the inner part of the door to the dash ?

Okay, I'm not sure if this will tell you anything or not (keep in mind I'm still learning about this car), but I notice a lot of the '67 are 3-speeds; this one is a 4 speed.  Does that really tell you anything?

The vin" is placed on the door pillar on my -67 A-body,but on my -68 vert A-body it`s placed on the dash,both on drivers side.Over the years it has been diffcult to find parts for -67 A-bodies,but nowdays among others Laysons Resto have alot of parts for these cars.Hope You`ll be able to buy this rare Cuda and restore it to its former glory.It`s a great find. :thumbs:  :drool:

All right, update time.
First I'm going to give you a little more background information, be prepared:
The Barracuda belongs to a guy name Stewart.  He's a family friend of my girlfriend's parents.  Well, Stewart sold a couple tractors for that car.  Thing is, one of the tractor's belonged to another guy, who is a complete jerk.  Stewart was reluctant to sell because that guy might get mad or something.  That guy owes Norm (girlfriend's dad) a lot of money, so they were going to buy the Barracuda, that way if that guy got mad at Stewart or Norm, Norm could call him out on his debt.  Well, Stewart was about to sell when that guy called out of nowhere and scared Stewart.  Finally, after tons of persuasion, Stewart has sold it.  My girlfriend bought it and I'm paying her off.  I just got the final word about 5 minutes ago.  The Barracuda is officially mine.  Now, once I find out if that car is a Formula S I will know what route I want to take.  If it is, she's going back to stock, if not, in goes a 440.

In short:  I OWN A 1967 BARRACUDA!!! :thumbs: :thumbs:
