P.P.S.
The girlfriend and I are going in on it together.  I know I know, what if you break up?  We don't really think that's going to happen.  I mean... she has the wedding planned and everything. :wasted:  So with that said, I'm paying $750 for it and she's paying the other $750.  This Sat. we're going down and getting both our names put on the title.  She's been dying for a Mopar to restore, now we can do it together and go to car shows together.  Also, when I'm not home she can get to work on it too.  I am so excited.  I have my dream car and the girlfriend is working on it too.  I have always drempt of my wife wanting to work on my Mopar with me.  I'M SO PUMPED!

And ghost, NEH NEH NEH NEH NEEEH NEEH! :tongue:

Well, when her parents build something like this:






It's easy to see WHY she is somewhat into cars.  :cool:

I'll get more pictures this weekend as well as all the numbers.

Hey, sorry to bother, I know this is probably listed somewhere, but I'm having trouble finding it (b*tchn blue even told me last night), where can I find all the numbers?  Where are they all located on a 67 Barracuda?

Congrats to the buy 67 cuda
The fendertag is located on the fenderwell close to battery,vin# on front doorpillar and both on drivers side.Post the numbers and I`m sure someone here on the board will be able to decode it.Vin#`s pretty easy to decode.

Did you say $1500.00 ? Buddy you are one lucky dog, if that car is orginal with that equipment, well I'm starting to be envious to put it politely, nice find, nice STEAL.

All right!  So I went home this weekend and brought it to the girlfriend's house.  Got some bad news, she's not original.  That's not the original engine.  It had the 273 Commando, but the guy didn't like that.  It now has a 383 with a Holley carb and intake and MSD ignition (that's what the switch in the dash is, ignition timing adjuster).  Since it's not original, though, I'm now not afraid to play with it.  I now have huge plans.
If someone could check this VIN for me, I would appreciate it:
BH29D72268200

That's what I pulled off the inside, driver's door.
And here's the pictures (warning, there are a lot).










With these pictures, I didn't have time to crawl under the car so I just reached under there and took what I could:















On the back of an aluminum part with the fish on it, I pulled this number:
2839108 AN NO 50-541, does that mean anything?

On the steering column I pulled this number:
AP42, does that mean anything?

She looks like a diamond in the rough!!!  I could imagine that car looking really, really mean!  Too bad about the numbers thing, but like you said, there's a goodness to that.  Now you can feel free to do whatever you'd like!  Congrats!!

Bummer it wasn't originally a big block car from the factory.  But like you said, now you can build a monster out of that thing without too much shame.  (unless you were to add APC components, then we'd have to ban you from the community. :grinyes: :tongue:) 

Best of luck with the project as you continue to work on it now. :thumbs:
