We are working on this unique Plymouth Barracuda Convertible. This 1970 Plymouth Barracuda is part of the third generation of the Barracuda that ran from 1970-1973. This generation of Barracuda actually shared its frame with the new Dodge Challenger but shared none of the same exterior sheet metal as the Challenger had a 2 inch longer body. It's owned by the shop owner, Jack Farland and was sold new at Jack's father's Plymouth dealership back in 1970/1971. It's an original '70 Barracuda with red exterior and red interior. Also equipped with a 318 engine. We are starting on paint in the trunk area, after we completed exterior bodywork a while back.
This particular car was sold new at our shop owners dad's dealership in 1970/1971 and is ready for a full restoration back to its original glory!
When we began work on the car there were some trouble spots on the body with some rust.
We removed the engine to begin restoring it as well.
After the rust was removed and replaced with fresh new metal we began sanding the body to prepare it for primer.
After the engine was overhauled and painted it was placed back into the car.
After all the necessary body work was completed, a layer of primer was applied.
