    Just bought this 68 Barracuda fastback Formula S 340 on Saturday. Don't know exactly what the future plans are but I've always wanted a Hemi car. I think I finally have the perfect platform to start.

        I know it's your car.....

        ...and it's beautiful...

        ...but I I were wanting to build a Hemi clone, I wouldn't use a really nice Form S 340 as a starting point.

          Nice! Time to butcher it. Make sure you use a hacksaw on those inner fenders when you go fenderwell headers.

          Hemi's use under chassis headers...but the shock tower needs to be laid back a bit. And it's been said, start with the nicest car you can afford, saves time and money on body work/paint/interior and so forth.
