    Hello at all! I am Christopher and new in this Forum.

    I am Looking for the Original 68' Barracuda that was used in the Movie Highwaymen from 2004. I make a lot reseach Work on this car and this is what i Found:

    The got for the Movie 4 Cuda's, 2 Hero Cars and 2 Stunt Cars. First Hero Car (what i am Looking for) was a Match 340 4 Speed Car with a 8 3/4 Rare Axel with 3.91 gears the Engine got some tuned up for the Movie Scenes (Other cam,Headers,Heads,Intake and Carb.) The 2. Hero Car was a stock 318 (Fake Hemi inside for the Movie shots.) that was Latter Destroyed in the Herbie Film. The 3. Stunt Car. Was a 318 too that was Destroyed at the End of the Movie. The 4. Stunt Car was Just a Cuda for the Rollover scene at the End with out a Engine or Transmission.

    To the 340 Hero Car.
    It was after the Movie was done at the New Line Cinema Studios for "Rent a Car" to other Movies. The Car was used then in 2006 on a Episode of Melcome in the Middle (Season 6,Episode 9. "Melcomes First Car") After that the Car was on Ebay up For Sale in 2007 for 5,600 Dollars. Some Lucky Guy buy it and now its Lost... Nobody know where it is now and i Hope that i can find the Owner of it or Find a Nice 68' Fastback Barracuda to make a Replica of it. My Information to the Cars came from 2 Stunt Drivers from the Movie where i am in Contact with.

    Thx to be here and I Hope i find something here ^^
    Nice Greetings from Germany, Chris :burnout:

    I picked up the movie when a friend told me it had a 68 barracuda in it.
    A few things I noticed that were done to the car for the film:
    Grant steering wheel
    Torque thrust wheels with Goodyear raised white letters
    Looks to be a Mach 1 chin spoiler
    Blacked out Hemi hood
    71 B body bench pistol grip shifter
    VDO tach and a couple aftermarket guages
    Wood console with cup holders
    Half a dozen CB and scanners stacked up under dash on trans hump
    Simpson 5 point harness's
    Aftermarket door mirror
    Hemi hockey stick stripes
    Roll bar

    The other Aftermarket gauges for Oil,Temp and Oil Pressure was from Stewart Warner.
    VDO Tach was from a VW aftermarket tuning set and goes to 8k RPM

      I l’ve nevere seen the film, but would like to. I know the film credits say ‘68 Barracuda, and not that it matters, but isn’t that a ‘67? No side markers in the rear.

      I think that's the Corky Barracuda with Robert Blake.
