Some January 2001 before pictures show my 1965 Barracuda; the Plymouth has 60,000 original miles on it and was owned by a 80 year old woman.

I built a 360 ci for it, tore the car apart, and then took on the process of putting it back together.

The motor is punched out .20 over, with mopar purple cam, M1 intake, and some other stuff.

The car is going to be Viper Red with either a Pearl White stripe or a Black stripe.

I am converting it to the big bolt pattern with disc brakes and a 8 1/4 rear end.

The picture above shows an edited-by-photoshop look that I was going for:
shaving most the emblems along with the driver side mirror and antenna
and putting either 16 inch or 17 inch American Racing Torque Thrust rims on.

Thanks, Kenny!

The 80 year old woman had great taste in Mopars. She even had the optional stripe on the Barracuda!

Carry on with your excellent restoration!
