Needs A V8: 1965 Plymouth Barracuda
It's funny to think that Plymouth beat Ford to the pony car market in the mid 60s, but the original Barracuda hit showrooms (in April 1964) exactly two weeks before the Mustang. It was promptly slaughtered in the weekly sales figures but it offered a similar compact fastback with inline-6 and V8 optional power. Find this 1965 Plymouth Barracuda here on eBay offered for $3,400 buy-it-now or make-offer located in Bakersfield, CA.
There was a nice factory original V8 Barracuda fastback that sold for $11,977 yesterday, but I missed the chance to feature it -- instead here is a garage find offered for a really low price. It is missing an engine, but there are all kinds of old school Mopar options that should bolt right in, or you could go nuts and try to put in something newish.
The seller says that this car was given to him by his father and he was trying to restore it but has no time or funds, so you his loss is your gain.
