Plymouth Barracuda 1973 Description

We know why you love a Mopar. Chrysler built some of the most interesting designs of the muscle car era, and they did it in the lowest numbers. So of course you're going to be attracted to this 1973 Plymouth 'Cuda. And with slick silver paint, white-faced gauges, air conditioning, four-on-the-floor, and a screaming 340 V8 with six pack under the hood, it's Mopar muscle desire on wheels.Owing a 'Cuda from this era is a bit like entrance into an exclusive club. By 1973, higher insurance premiums were killing muscle car production numbers, and Chrysler always had lower figures then the rest of The Big Three, so these are rare. Combine this with Mopar's traditionally long option list, and the 'Cuda camaraderie is often about the few ways owner's cars are alike. This one starts with a nice respray of JA5 Dark Silver Poly paint. The modern interpretation of the factory-correct color gives you the prestige of originality, and the flair of clearcoat shine. The hue is also the perfect complement to the darker elements like the hood scoop, full-length side stripe package, blacked-out tail panel, and rear spoiler. But on of our favorite pieces that came on later cars is a bit brighter. The red grille accents that look like the glowing eyes of a hungry wolf. Even with all of this aggressive personality, there's plenty of room left for good brightwork on places like the bumpers, around the pillarless hardtop, and on the rocker panels. This feeling of both aggressive and bright seems to come together best on the 15-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels.Inside is the factory-correct setup that gives you pristine white on the high back bucket seats, broad door panels, and headliner. But the carpeting remains a dark black, so you don't have to worry about taking your shoes off before going out for a cruise. And the moment you sit down, you know this Mopar was made for driving. You have a center console with the iconic pistol grip shifter. The wood rimmed three-spoke sports steering wheel feels simple, direct, and effective. The same can be said for a set of recently rebuilt white-faced gauges, that have everything from a center tach, to a large clock. These classic E-bodies prioritized controls for the driver, which has been enhanced further thanks to the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo and R134a air conditioning controls all within easy reach.The optional 340 cubic inch V8 was a vital upgrade because it symbolizes the end of an era. Not long after this coupe left Chrysler's Jefferson Avenue factory, the first energy crisis began to close the book on powerful American V8 cars. So, just to make sure this swan song motor is running at its full potential, there are performance enhancements such as an Edelbrock intake, MSD Ignition, and an upgrade to the iconic three two-barrel carburetor "Six Pack". But what you're really going to love about this V8 is the way it looks. All the polished components do an amazing job of actually outshining the metallic silver painted engine bay that's a true show-worthy luster. But this 'Cuda does so much more than just look great. With the twist of the key, the header fed X-pipe dual exhaust roars to life. You get complete control of the sound and fury of this V8 with the four-speed manual transmission. And the power reliably gets to the ground thanks to an 8.75 rear end with 3.23 gears all installed within the last few months for true durability. There are plenty more desirable features to keep this your favorite cruising machine, including power steering, front disc brakes, traction bars, and air shocks on the rear suspension.Because you're going to want to show off this total package, it also comes with the factory build sheet, original warranty card, and owner's manual. This 'Cuda is rare, fast, and gets everything right, so don't let this opportunity slip away. Call now!!
