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.
The Hemi is equipped with Keith Black pistons and rings, an oversized camshaft and headers. This beautiful Hemi powered Barracuda is priced far below the real deal allowing you to enjoy one of the greatest muscle cars to ever leave Detroit.
