    Hi all, I'm posting up my new project. It's a 1967 Barracuda Notch that I bought from So Cal. It's a 225 slant 6 car but has front disks and a 8.25 rear so I'll be swapping for a 360 this year. in fact I just ordered my LA block 360 from Tri Star engines today. You all were a huge help in fixing up my father's 1964 Barracuda and hes been taking it out to local cruise nights enjoying it since.So this 67 is going to be my daily driver and I look forward to sharing updates as I make improvements to it soon. Thanks again everyone here on FABO!

      What a great looking car. Love the year, model and color. Looking forward to seeing how it comes along!

      Would love to see some interior photos when you get time.

          notchback "Cuda's remind me of the old business coupes.

                  heres my interior, luckily for me it doesnt really need anything. real leather seats and good headliner. I did change to a billit steering wheel for comfort. I tried a new Instrument voltage reducer and bypassing the ammeter but still cant get the stock gauges to work. oh well. some day.

                          Went out for a jog and had to park next to this new Mopar. Looks like mine but about 50 years newer.
