Still love yours zman, Im wishing i hadn't sold mine.I have a B7 blue 67 Barracuda convertible Formula S 383 4 speed restored back to nearly original condition.
I've been told by several Mopar guru's that because they had engine installation on the production line the 67 383 convertible numbers were weak
A registry currently shows 14 67Barracuda 383 convertible and the thoughts of many not a whole lot more were made.

I know for a FACT that there are more three (3) 1967 383 Formula S convertibles Barracuda built.I believe that there were only 3 383 Formula S convertibles, 2 4 speed cars and one lone auto. The automatic car was owned by the husband of a former member here, and she was selling the car here about 10 years ago. Documented and confirmed by Galen in the 90’s, it had been sitting under a tarp behind their garage when her husband passed away. He also had a 383-S notch that was his fun car. Anyway, the convertible was blue on blue with a blue convertible top, and it had the headrest option on the buckets. She was asking $12k, and it needed a lot of work, but it came with a stack of paperwork, and a lot of parts. I wasn’t in the position to buy it, but I sure wanted it. Maybe I can look back in my archives and find the pics and correspondence I had with her, she lived in Indianapolis.
There were but no one knows for sure because the information was destroyed years ago in a fire. I looked at similar cars Chrysler produced in 1967 that were convertible with a 383. It appeared out of a total number of cars produced in a model about 2% were 383 convertibles. Now a person also has to remember that the 67 Barracuda 383 convertible was a half year build. They discovered that the driver's side exhaust manifold didn't fit properly and cut production time fixing the design. So, they estimate maybe 100 built in 1967. Out of those it's estimated 10-14 are still running. I know of two people with a 1967 Barracuda 383 convertible registry. One was nine cars and the other 14.I know for a FACT that there are more three (3) 1967 383 Formula S convertibles Barracuda built.
You wouldn't have an idea who/how to contact them would you??The 1967 record still exist. You can get a copy of the IBM car for your car, but cannot get all of them. There were 457 1967 GTS' built with an unknown number of convertibles (assumed by some experts at less than 20). There were 1,784 383 Barracudas in 1967. Convertibles were 6.8% of total Barracuda production. Even at 5% there would have been around 90 383 convertibles.
