First impressions are important, and this sinister Barracuda certainly makes a strong one. For starters, Plymouth did a great job whittling the Valiant’s conservative shape into a provocative and interesting profile that lends credibility to the car’s name. That profile, a completely rust-free body that was sourced from South Carolina, was stripped to bare metal and equipped with a quality fiberglass front-clip during a 2014 ground-up restoration that was completed by Americus, Georgia’s Bryce Customs. Once those surfaces were fully prepped and carefully aligned, a nice coat of conventional black base was sealed under glossy clear. And today, a mere 63 miles later, this sweet A-Body can be summed up as tasteful, precise and timeless. With an incredible 850 horsepower, and enough torque to drag the Chrysler Building from New York to New Jersey, the car’s 572 cubic inch Ray Barton Hemi is a high-octane MoPar monster that easily transitions from flattering to flat out scary! Behind that mill, a RAM hydraulic clutch kicks a Tremec T56 Tranzilla 6-speed which, thanks to a Drive Line Service of Atlanta driveshaft, spins a 9-inch Strange axle. That axle pushes a heavily modified rear-clip, which strings billet Strange shocks and tough monoleaf springs between requisite mini tubs and slick CalTracs traction bars. Opposite that clip, a heavily modified front-half hangs a Reilly Motorsports AlterKtion K-member, complete with QA-1 adjustable coil-overs, behind power rack-and-pinion steering. Stops are provided by Wilwood 4 and 6-piston calipers, which squeeze an impressive quartet of drilled and slotted rotors. And momentum comes courtesy of polished American Racing Torq Thrust IIs, which wear 235/45ZR17 Nitto Extreme ZRs in front of 305/45R18 Nitto Extreme Drags. Brutally fast and visually stunning, this awesome Barracuda should make every enthusiast smile! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information.
