Description = 1973 Plymouth Barracuda 318/904/8.75,2.7 My Dad purchased this car in '73 In Cincinatti, OH, and kept it around (not running) for 10 years until he let me start to restore it and drive it in high school. It is still the factory color scheme and I think looks good. I need to take off the front rubber bumpers, though. I now autocross it (poorly) and drag race it some (poorly).

The motor/trans/rear: -Stock Short Block - never been touched -.05" milled 360 heads 1.88"/1.6" ported, but not by me -Edelbrock Performer Intake and 600cfm carb -Summit 204/214 @.05" cam -Hooker Super Comp Headers with Dynomax Super Turbo 2.5" -MSD with original dist. set to 12 initial and 34 total -Smallest radiator in Mopar history with '85 Mercedes Diesel shroud -Stock 904 - about to change; needed Bouchillon Kickdown Kit (awesome), burnt tranny -Stock open diff 8.75 with 2.7 gears

The results: Still Slow

The Chassis: -American Racing Torq Thrust II's/BF Goodrich G-Force T/A KDWS 16X7" 225/55 front and 17X8" 255/50 back (I basically copied BradD except used narrower rear wheels) -Front/Rear 1"/.875" PST Sway Bars -Polyurethane Front End Kit - need to find some + caster -Stock T-bars and Leaves - soon to change

The Results: Still Slow, but still loving it
