    What fender emblem is below the 'Barracuda' script on the fender of a 1969 non-'cuda, non-Formula S, Barracuda with a 340 engine? It seems I have seen both the fish and '340-S' emblem in this position on different cars that were neither of the performance models. Any definitive answers?

    mine is a legit 340 S by fender tag how ever it dosnt have
    150 speedo
    head restraints (thought to be a 69 manditory)
    tach
    no sure grip
    drum brakes

    and what ever parts they started on Monday with and what they had left on Friday !!!!

    The next Carlisle trip will be hunting down the head restraints/got everything else

      I don't think there is an engine callout for non "S" cars.

            150 speedo, disc brakes, tach and sure grip were all options, even on S cars. Head restraints were law for cars built January 1, 1969 and after.

              Fish is below the Barracuda script for standard Barracudas. Note: my 383-s was a stripe delete car.

                I think I read that if you had a side stripe with the engine call out, you got the fish. If you had an S car without the stripe you got the 340-S badge. This is 69 only.

                  This is true. 69 Formula S cars with the sidestripe got the fish and Formula S cars without the sidestripe got the 340-S or 383-S emblem. The only thing that I’m not sure of is what came on a 69 Barracuda when it came with a 340 and was a non formula car. This would have been equivalent to a 340 Dart Swinger.

                    Although I have a 69 Barracuda dealer brochure that shows a 383-s that has the stripe and the 383-s fender emblem. Maybe just a promo car, one of one, don't know. It also shows standard barracudas with no fish emblem either, so who knows.

                      Some could possibly be the sport package option. Since I have no fender tag or build sheet, I do not know if it had the Formula S package or not (car was stolen, stripped, then further stripped by guy who bought it at police auction). Told me he had the fender tag, but he never came through with it.
                      However, mine is a factory P code (yes dash vin and radiator support match, still having trouble with trunk lip), built in early Aug. '68. I do know mine came with the Sport Package, the main give away being the 9 holes on each side rocker's for the attaching clips. Those rocker moldings and especially the clips are more unobtanium parts. I would love to know if mine was a Formula S with a Sport Package, or just the sport package (though other things I have found on it leads me to believe it was a Formula S).
                      I also wonder if a Formula S had a sport package, could possibly the 340 call out in the stripe be for the Formula S and the 340-S fender emblem be for the sport package.
                      I've never been able to find out for sure.

                        That car was built in 68, wouldn't have head restraints.

                          Unless it was ordered with headrests, which were Extra until becoming mandatory on 1-1-69. You could even order just one headrest, which I always thought was strange. Chrysler had already started putting the braces in the seats for the headrest posts, but not exactly sure when they did.

                            There are some and I mean Very few! 69 340 cars that got the The 340-S emblem on a spring special Car, Not Formula-S. Unique One offs. Fender tags will support it with the spring special code. Otherwise the plain Jane got a fish logo.

                            Formula-S 340/ 383 cars only got the 340/ 383-S emblem on stripe delete or V-7 stripe cars.

                            Cuda’ in either 340 or 383/440 never got them and Only had the fish emblem below the script period. Plus the special stripes and hood.

                            You have to be careful and match the fender holes to the emblem and know the fender was correct to the car. This is were many get side tracked. It easy to do so as these cars are old and who knows who changed what through the years, general rules are as above though!

                              Standard 340/383 Formula-S car with sports stripe and engine call only had the Barracuda script. Fender tag tells the story!

                                And yes you could get a V6 sport stripe on almost any engine combo. Only 340S /383S had the call Out in the stripe. Obviously 440 was only in Cuda’ only.

                                225 to 318 could be ordered V6 but solid stripe only.

                                69 script was plane Jane as well. As shown in post #2. No paint inside the script. Boring at best, but correct!

                                  I have 2 Barracuda script that are NOS one has black paint on inside of the lettering and the other is solid chrome.
                                  Also you cant just buy head rests and the chrome seat tops and install them. There is inner structure involved.

                                    That is the situation . The car was in an accident before I owned it and the nose was replaced. The fender tag is missing (have the build sheets) . Passenger side has all the correct emblems and was looking to add onto the drivers side.

                                    Here are examples of a 340 Formula S with the Sport Stripe and a 440 ‘cuda. The Formula S is an original survivor and the 440 ‘cuda was an original paint car before I restored it over 25 years ago.

                                      YearOne sells a kit and the head restraints. You'll need to hold tight to something when you see the price!
