Plymouth Barracuda 1969 Description

Up for bid is a 1969 Fast Back Barracuda. This is the last year of big block A bodies. This is the 383/auto option. Car has been owned by me since 1984 and was purchased new from the SJ Denham Chrysler/Plymouth dealership of Redding, California. The dealership is still an active 5-Star rated Mopar dealership. Both original dealer license plate frames are included.
This car has had a brief period of being owned by awell-meaning person who wished to use the Cuda for his gardening service. He removed almost everything in the interior, except for one bucket seat. I have located and purchased all of the lost interior parts, and have found a good instrument panel to replace the previous owner's broken piece. Car has the 150 MPH speedometer dash. I also contributed by making this car into a drag car.
Car has the original red door panels and steering wheel. I purchased a new red carpet set for the car. The car has a 489 case 3:23 open differential, which is how it was delivered. I may have the 4 wheel covers and original 4 14" steel wheels.
As can be seen by the photos, this car was drag raced and had Fenderwell headers installed. The original 383 A-body exhaust manifolds are still with the car. The windshield wipers and heater box were removed for racing and the next owner will need to find those parts. The 8 3/4 rear end has the original axles and brake drums. I had the axles and drums drilled for 5 on 4 1/2" wheel pattern. The wheel studs for the original 5 on 4" can be reinstalled in the original holes.
I purchased all 4 wheel opening moldings to replace the damaged originals. The original 383 was lost 30 years ago and is not available. I am including a standard bore 1969 HP block which I believe to be date-code correct. I may have the original oil pan--if not I have a #402 which works well.
The drivers front fender took a hit on the headlight corner. This fender was replaced with one in primer which is still on the car. The original fender is repairable, and can be seen in one of the included photos. The passenger door window glass needs replacing. Windshield and other glass is original and in good condition.
The paint on the car is original, as is the full-car graphics of stripe with 383 call-outs. There are many blemishes which will need touching up.
I can supply much more information by phone 805 646 3334. I can work with the buyer for storage until towing can be found (I have had the car 33 years--another week or two isn't an issue!).
Things which are included with the car and not photographed are:
1) new aftermarket molded Red Carpet set
2) package of all fasteners for the interior
3) all interior sheet metal to replace missing items
4) nice original used instrument cover
5) center console
6) rear folding seat
7) pair of original exhaust manifolds
8) Oil Pan-either original or Mopar #402
9) Chrome original air cleaner
10) chrome original valve covers
11) original intake manifold and Carter AVS carb
12) Original 27" wide 3-core radiator
13) a few grille and headlight surround pieces
14) both good original bumpers with dealer license frames
15) bonus bumper with bumper guards (not correct for this Cuda)
16) both original California black license plates
Though a good, solid car, many issues will need addressing. I encourage interested buyers to examine the car in person. I may not be the most objective seller.
