Plymouth Barracuda 1972 Description

There are very few words more fearsome in the pony car world than 'Cuda. So, t's irresistible to find one like this recently restored 1972 Plymouth 'Cuda, hat blends big block 440 muscle car style with enough modern upkeep to be a daily driver.Owing a 'Cuda from this era is like entrance into an exclusive club. By 1972, igher insurance premiums were killing muscle car production numbers, nd Chrysler always had lower figures then the rest of The Big Three. Combine this with Mopar's traditionally long option list, nd the 'Cuda camaraderie is often about the few ways owner's cars are alike, ecause most are so rare and unique. Keen Mopar eyes will have already spotted a few differences on this coupe. For starters, t turns back the clock a few years to take away the federal impact bumpers. And while this was being customized, he front grille and rear panel were switched out for 1970s style pieces to complete the correct look. It all gives this 'Cuda a distinctive minimized chrome appearance that lets you focus on the awesome original shade of Rallye Red paint, nd its accessories such as the hockey stripe down the side, ood pins, nd of course, he highly desirable bold shaker hood. Open the door, nd it's everything you want to see. High-backed black vinyl bucket seats, ew door skins, nd a center console with the cool original "slapstick" shifter. Then you slip behind the wood rimmed three-spoke wheel and you see some serious upgrades. There's an AM/FM/CD stereo so you can play your modern tunes while cruising. More importantly there is a full custom set of AutoMeter gages that makes sure you have a clear picture of what's going on under the hood.The fender callouts, nd hood shaker, id not disquise what lies beneith in this 'Cuda. Power comes from a 440 cubic-inch V8. You may already know these engines were not available from the factory in '72, ut this car was just too good not to get a big block. So a '71 motor was completely rebuilt less than 300 miles ago, nd installed in this racy red Plymouth. While they were upgrading the motor, t also received performance goodies like an Edelbrock carburetor, delbrock intake, nd long tube headers. So now you can just imagine how well this one barks at other cars from its dual exhaust system. Delivery of all this power is quite good thanks to the A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission that's connected to the Sure Grip limited slip differential rear end, ith a versatile 3.23 ratio. Control is well in hand with power steering, ront disc brakes, nd modern BF Goodrich grip, asked by period-correct painted steel wheels and dog dish hubcaps.This 'Cuda is fresh off a restoration from earlier this year, nd we even can show you all the receipts to prove it. Rarely do you get this level of quality in a Mopar for such an affordable price. Call today!!
