    Going to south sound tomorrow to buy another 69 Barracuda parts car . This one is a BH29F9B Fastback but i think i still may need 1 more car to restore my 69 340'cuda . The car i am buying tomorrow is too funny , it has a 318 1bbl with an automatic but i found it has a clutch pedal ( fender tag says its a 4 speed ) also has 1 340'cuda fender and other fender is Formula S . Fender tag also has A56 on it . By the time my shop is built ( end oct. maybe ) I will be rotten Cuda king of Puget Sound .

    Where's the car at? Dan didn't already buy it? There is a guy named Guy in Pacific/Algona that has quite a collection of 69's. Dan might be able to get you in touch with him.

    The 150 MPH speedo was part of the Rallye Instrument Cluster. It has nothing to do with engine size.

    The 'cuda package was Plymouths stripper version of the Formula S. It usually was offered with few options, and I am pretty sure drum brakes, 120mph speedo and non-foldable rear seat were standard.

    Could be a nice score indeed.

    They say acceptance is the first step towards healing , then they say its good to overdose on your addiction so you'll develop an aversion to it , I haven't been able to manage the second part but I'm trying

    My lovely lady has asked me how many junked Barracuda's does it take to restore one , i told her hopefully only one more .......... i should not have said that . lol . I was cleaning out the car and checking it out further and found only one rust hole in the pan ( yippy ) on passenger side rear seat , trunk is in great shape because it was full of oily parts and plugs were popped out of the spare tire well . Was actually gonna try to start the car on Saturday but i realized i never got the keys ( I am not brightest light on the tree ) . I dont think the fender tag is legit for this car cuz no numbers on fender match VIN # . If i ever figure out how to post pictures i will get some out to you all . This car has fold down rear seat , power steering , drum brakes , bucket seats has one formula S fender and one 340 'Cuda fender . Engine is a 318 1 bbl carb . I will definately have a few parts available this winter after i sort the car out .

    The '67 shell ive got has good rear pans in it, if you want em PM me, you can come over and cut em out. I'm getting what I need from the car and the rest is going to get scrapped out.

    Vin tag may be fine, maybe the fenders got swapped out, its not like they reprop em.

This Barracuda i just bought is a parts car for my 69 340'Cuda , but i may like to come by this fall and cut out some floor pieces , what do you need for your car ?

    Have what I need for my car from the shell. Had to buy floor pans because when I was prepping my front ones to come out of the shell I found out they were covered in bondo and fiberglass lol. I'm in Spanaway now(tacoma)

    This is the car i bought to use as a donor for the 340'Cuda . The car is kinda interesting , it has an automatic trans but has clutch pedal . The car has 1 Formula S fender and 1 340'Cuda fender . Can anyone tell me if they think the fender tag is correct for the car , i am not sure . It is a 318 with a 1 barrel carb . Let me know what you think , i am still not sure the 340'Cuda is restorable but gonna give it a shot , it is the blus car in pictures .
