1969 Plymouth 340 Barracuda
The second-generation Barracuda is commonly referred to as an A-body and this model ran for 3 years from 1967 to 1969. This Barracuda comes with its two build sheets as well as the original owner’s manual, known history from 1969 till today and a copy of its import approval.
The car was painted in America in 2007 and mechanically overhauled with a high performance 340 V8, B&M heavy duty Taqueflight with Hughes 2800 stall converter and 8.75-inch Suregrip rear end with 3.55:1 gear, all replaced by a professional shop in Virginia in 2009. The car later changed hands and was purchased by an Aussie and imported and sold to the current owner in August 2010 where it was sent to Gasoline Alley in Brisbane to then be gone through mechanically and set up as a reliable streetcar . It had a rear main seal to do and was just an old car underneath. The current owner had the team remove the engine and gearbox to re gasket, the whole K frame was removed, cleaned and repainted, the underside of the car stripped and repainted body colour and reassembled with a disc brake front, all new suspension and bushings done and reassembled with QLD LO2 compliance done at the time so he could pick it up and drive it back to Mackay… This was all done to the tune of approx 25k aud on top of his purchase price. It is currently insured with Shannons with an agreed value of 70k. It’s been built to be a reliable street car and that’s exactly what it is, it’s done several big road trips and just been driven down from Mackay to us to be sold. Listed for sale at a very fair $49,900
