I am the second owner of a 1965 Barracuda.
I bought the 'Cuda in 1979 for $150.00 and drove it daily until I parked it in my parent's garage when joined the Air Force that same year. My 'Cuda had major body cancer, so when I received orders to Korea in 1980, I sent the car to a Body shop and asked that he do his best to get it back in good shape.
$2000 and a $150.00 parts car later my 'restored' 'Cuda returned to my parent's garage. To make a long story short, I just (August 24, 2000) returned to Denver with my 'Cuda on a car trailer. It still looks real good but 19+/- years of storage didn't do the car any favors.
As I brought the car cross-country, I received three cash offers,
several personal stories regarding events that occurred in and around
other '65 Cudas, and hundreds of admiring looks from other motorists as
we rolled down the highway - some even passed us, slowed down until we
went by, and then passed us again to get a better look.
