Hello everyone! Wanted to take some time to introduce me and my Mopar. I love all the info on this site! I'm sure that I'll be using it as my project progresses...
I've inherited my living fathers 1970 tripple black 1970 Plymouth Barracuda. Dad has too many projects and dosent have the time to give the car the TLC it needs. Dad bought the car back in 1973, and I remember the day he drove it home...that's another story. It was an original 318 3-spd car. The car was driven year round till bout '79 when the timing chain broke. Dad debated selling the car, but in the end, he decided to fix it up. During the first restoration, Dad replaced the 318 3-spd with a 340 4-spd with pistol grip shifter. It is a fun car to drive, and I consider myself very fortunate to now own it.
I am in the process on giving the car it's second restoration. The years of Minnesota winters took their toll on the car. I'm currently replacing floor boards and upgrading to leather interrior. I have plans to turn it into a Cuda clone. I've got the hood, rear exhaust valance, exhaust tips ect... I've already replaced the cooling system (you can see evidence of the leak in the photo). I'm gonna upgrade to front disk brakes too.
This car has been in my family for a long time. There are alot of good memories and sentimental value is off the chart. I'm looking forward to giving her a third lease on life. I'm sure I'll be asking a lot of questions down the road.
Till then...thanks for reading.
