My dad picked this 1965 barracuda up at auction and I'm mulling whether it's worthwhile to build. It would be my first mopar. It's actually moving under its own power with a slant 6 of unknown quality but doesn't look to have been on the road in a while and if I tackle it at all I would be doing a modernish v8 swap and probably disc brakes and a stronger limited slip rearend. Before I go down that rabbit hole I'll probably get someone who knows more about body work than me to check it out but thought I'd throw some pics up here, too. My main concern is the condition of what I guess are like frame rails with this being a unibody car. There's at least no through hole rust that I saw so I'm hopeful it isn't a lost cause. I was sort of surprised to see there are separate front and back rails as the only other unibody I've worked on they run the length of the car. I guess the floor plans are basically holding the two ends together? If so, I need floor pans for sure. And will probably weld the front and back rails together just because the two halves thing weirds me out. That just seems floppy. It's definitely got some fiberglass and bondo in places but the tricky areas of panel seem mostly ok. But it also has about 4 layers of paint, each crappier than the last, so I could be wrong. Every piece of glass including that greenhouse in the back is intact. Honestly that's a big selling point on this car for me. I always liked boat tail rivieras and had somehow never run across the first gen Barracuda. So I like the look. I think this one maybe has some incorrect stuff going on with the hood and grille, though?
