71 Cuda

For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a 1971 Plymouth Barracuda painted in Curious Yellow and powered by the infamous 426 Hemi. Originally the car was powered by a 318. Most would agree that the 318 is a great engine, to pull out and replace it. What better engine to use than an original 426 Hemi from 1968. In our minds, the best way to enjoy a Hemi is with a 4-speed. Here you go, 4-speed transmission(new clutch and pressure plate) with a 3.91 gear set in an 8 3/4 rear end. This makes for a very fun muscle car. Equipment is minimal, but that seems appropriate for a Hemi powered muscle car. It is equipped with power steering and an AM radio is in place, but why would you bother? You have the music of the Hemi and a gas pedal for the volume control, that’s all you need. The paint will stop you in your tracks. This is a very high quality paint job with hours upon hours of wet sanding and rubbing for a true show car shine. Adding to the look is a set of MOPAR Rally wheels in 15″ with modern radial rubber, Hemi Billboard graphics and a black vinyl roof. Inside is standard Barracuda with black vinyl seats, center console housing the 4-speed shifter and an array of gauges. The interior is only 4 years old and looks great.
