Description:

While the later ''Cudas seem to get all the press, true Mopar enthusiasts haven''t forgotten the early Barracudas, and most notably, the Formula S models with their 383 cubic inch big blocks, upgraded suspension, and bigger tires. This particular 1968 Barracuda Formula S is dressed in the unusual notchback body style and boasts a numbers matching drivetrain. No question about it, this is a very special car. Beautifully restored just a few years ago, this car presents today in absolute stock condition and looks like it may have just hours after the proud new owner drove it home. The work is show quality throughout, and the original body panels are proof that this car has been a cherished toy from new, and not someone''s beater or track star. Finished in correct Monotone White paint, the car is unassuming and blends into the background, which is what I presume the original owner intended. The Formula S badge up front on the fender might hint at what''s under the hood. Not only is she a true sleeper, but she looks great doing it with great panel fit, glossy paint is and brilliant chrome that was thoroughly refinished during the resto. From inside the Barracuda, however, the driver is enveloped in a cool black bucket seat interior, and Chrysler stylists in the ''60s were at the top of their game. Like the body, it''s simple and unadorned, but the detailing and shapes are brilliant. A comprehensive set of gauges are easily visible through the slender steering wheel spokes, and the 4-speed shifter falls easily to hand just inches from the rim. The back seat is as new, the carpets are new, the headliner is new, and well, you get the picture. This car is ready to show and win at the highest levels. It even has the original Music Master AM radio. In the horsepower department, this Formula S packs its original, numbers-matching 383 cubic inch Super Commando V8, which, in this guise makes 300 horsepower. Both the engine and the 4-speed transmission have been recently rebuilt, and it drives like a new car. The engine bay is brilliantly detailed, and accurate down to the smallest items such as hoses and wire-style clamps. The block is bathed in Mopar Turquoise, adorned with factory chrome valve covers, and some of the best-looking, best preserved exhaust manifolds we''ve ever seen. The air cleaner is a ''67 piece, but is original and correct for this early-build car and has been properly finished in black wrinkle paint. The chassis is highly original, and the original floors are still covered in factory-applied undercoating. A correct dual exhaust system has been installed, complete with crossover and original rectangular tips. Front disc brakes are probably a smart idea with all that horsepower in such a lightweight package, and the guy who ordered this one was no dummy. The rugged Chrysler 8.75 inch rear still carries the original 3.23 Sure Grip posi gears, which make this car great for long distance cruising, and it has recently been rebuilt with new bearings throughout. Wheels are the original 14-inch steelies wearing dog-dish hubcaps and redline radials for an authentic look and modern performance. If you''ve read this far, I don''t have to tell you that this is an extremely cool, rare car. With a fresh restoration, and matching-numbers, this is clearly an investment-grade car, made all the more appealing by its true sleeper looks. The guy who ordered this car (his name is on the original CertiCard, which is included) seemed to know what he was doing when he filled out the order form. All the go-fast parts were chosen for his true Formula S package, including a 383 4bbl, 4-speed, 3:23 sure-grip posi, front discs and black buckets to hold you tight while you''re enjoying the ride. With a low-profile notchback body, and that nondescript white paint with plain steel wheels-it just doesn''t get cooler than that if you''re into sleepers. Ready to show or drive, this is a car that will make even the most jaded Mopar fan sit up and take notice. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
