An amazing 1970 Plymouth Barracuda barn find has been completely restored with its original HEMI V8 !!!
Barn finds are definitely the best, it feels like you wake up on Christmas morning to find a classic car that could be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in the hands of the right mechanic.
And that is the worth of this barn found after being lovingly restored by a skilled technician and his son.
Since the car is a 1970 model, it also has a shaker hood scoop and a 4-speed automatic transmission to go along with the faux wood-trimmed laminate that adorns the dashboard. Leather seating in pristine off-white is a premium feature as well.
The story of this barn find is amazing and heartwarming.
The vehicle was originally purchased new in Wisconsin, the owner was forced to sell the ‘Cuda to a farmer in order to afford a new house for his soon-to-be-born son. The farmer barely ever drove the ‘Cuda, and kept it in a barn for the next 30 years.
But the original owner and the farmer kept in touch, the owner tried to buy back the car over the years until the farmer finally relented and resold his set of wheels back to the original owner.
Being kept on a barn for three decades for sure had taken its toll on the old automobile.
Fortunately the original owner was a bit of a mechanic and with the help of his now fully grown son, they managed to restore the car to its incredible original condition.
