    Well, been a member for a while, having several 71 Darts, but finally the Holy Grail, for me anyway. Hello, I just picked up this 68 Barracuda. Mild 67 hp 440, Liberty faceplated 18 spline 4 speed, narrowed Dana, Caltracs and monoleafs, frame tied, and Clark, she's a beaut. My friend and his wife bought it 25 years ago. They built it in 4 years, drove it for 12, and he passed away 8 years ago. She was finally able to let go of it, and I was first on the list to ask. He was an amazing guy, so naturally, it's an amazing car. cat=106&_nc_ohc=iihR8lCMrqQAQlimClr2HT0GtryQgdqpnmKL9y1dYR5S_LR0SsK0ssKzQ&_nc_ht=scontent-ort2-2.jpg

    It's a stock build, 8.5 to 1, 450 lift Comp cam. Basically, a dead stock motorhome 440.. for now. It does have a couple pieces of the puzzle on it now, though. Super Sniper Holley FI, TTI, Liberty faceplated 18 spline, 3.54 , 35 spline Moser Dana60 with a Powerloc, Caltracs and mono's, mini tubbed. Fun, fun ,fun

      How were you able to type all that stuff with no arms or legs cuz I know that one arm and one leg wouldn't have been enough to buy the car?????

              I'd leave it low compression. Talk about an everyday FUN cruiser.
