    [WANTED] Early A body Car

    With all due respect regarding 65 Barracuda S cars: The 322 sales code option for the S package includes the tachometer as printed on the window sticker. The tachometer could be optioned on any 8 cylinder car (sale code 468), but was standard equipment with the S package. SG (Sure-Grip) was an...

    Info on 70 Duster in Stuart, FL

    I agree on the underside pictures.....but I have also developed significant distrust for online car dealers. Most seem to be unfamiliar with the car they have for sale..especially if Chrysler products are involved. I would certainly question most anything they state or claim. Thanks for your...

If it doesn't violate forum rules, I...

    Can Motor Be Installed Without Removing Hood?

    I reinstalled a 273 mated to it's 4 speed into my 66 Barracuda with the hood in place. I would do it again.

    65 had shields on both r & l exhaust manifolds from the factory. 66 shield/gasket only on the drivers side with no gasket or shield on the passenger side. Reuse old shield/gasket should be no ones are getting hard to find.

    1965 Formula S 5800 miles

    "Early A body HP muffler question" was my post from way back in 2011 when I was restoring my 65 FS., how much I've learned since then.

    1965 Formula S 5800 miles

    I have not found any other applications for the #541 or #548 (reverse flow mufflers). It seems they were only for 273 HP's. Can't be 100% sure though.

    1965 Formula S 5800 miles

    I wrote this article a couple of years back...but I do not know if I ever posted it on FABO or not, so the information may or may not be new to all readers. I provide this information in reference to posts #5 (mine) and #12 asking about the straight through muffler design. (see picture below...

    1965 Formula S 5800 miles

    Great video......and we heard the legit sound of an early straight through muffler. All 65 Formula S cars did not sound the same. The early versions were much louder and had a signature snap, crackle and pop when decelerating. Thanks for sharing

    65 Formula S tach mounting ?

    I used threaded studs screwed into the 4 tach mounting and attached with nut and a spacer for each. Screwing nuts on the a stud during re-installation is much easier than hoping to find where the threads are on the tach mount. Also, a nut can be held in a socket which helps when fingers and...

    65 Formula S tach mounting ?

    Begin the tach removal process by removing the instrument cluster first. Believe me, you will find that necessary. Also, removing the headlight switch and wiper switch will make getting to the 4 attachment nuts easier. Removing the fuse box attachment screw and moving it to the side the helps...

    information on tachometer wiring

    Tach has to be grounded in order to function. Grounding on 66's tachs are through the cluster via the instrument panel ground to body. On 65's, the tach has two wires attached to the back of the tach. One yellow wire from the sending unit and a black or brown dedicated ground wire.

    Did they ever produce a slant 6 4 speed with a console in 1966?

    That wasn't his statement, he simply reprinted dealer information sheets sent by Chrysler stating 4 speed transmissions for V-8 only. Sorry for the confusion.

    Did they ever produce a slant 6 4 speed with a console in 1966?

    FYI..1st gear ratio for 1964-65 4 speed transmission was 3.09:1 while the 66 1st gear ratio was 2.66:1. That 2.66:1 1st gear start would have had 225 6 cylinder grunting a bit to get moving. I have a 65 and 66 4 speed cars, personally I love the 3:09:1 first gear found in the 65 trans better...
