1965 Plymouth Barracuda // Original 273ci engine, tranny, rear end & carb
FMC has just added this fantastic entry level classic to our inventory. This Barracuda offers all the right stuff a great collector car needs to have. Originality, correctness, great lines and history. This classic has all that and more including a great price. One more thing! The odometer reads 43994 miles and although we have no records verifying the exact mileage, we have carefully looked over this car and have NO reason NOT to believe that this is the correct mileage. This car is that clean and original.
Ok starting with its power plant. Its not a 426Hemi. Its not even a 340! Its a 273 V8 with a 4bbl carburetor and a center console shift 3 speed automatic pushing 235hp. Not a rocket ship but no camel either. It easily keeps up with todays traffic. The really good thing is that it is all original to THIS car. A must for true classic car collectors. The car starts easily, runs and drives perfectly with no noises, rattles and certainly no leaks. She steers straight and stops great. She can be driven anywhere!
The body is in great condition with no rust. Body lines are smooth and straight and gaps are beautiful. Chrome and trim shine bright with no pitting or dings at all. There is some spider cracks on the trunk as shown by the blue marker. They are very hard to see. The stripes were a factory option as ordered on this car.
The interior is in excellent & mostly original condition. Seating has been refinished with NOS material. Carpet is new! Everything else is original and in excellent condition. All gauges and features work as they should. That includes all lights inside & out, signals, horn, back up lights, brake lights and parking lights. Heat is hot and the aftermarket radio plays through the original dash speaker. The fold down rear seat is a cool feature offering lots of storage space. The center console, bucket seats, seat belts and dual mirrors were optional and ordered on this car.
The trunk and undercarriage are immaculate as shown in the photos. There is a full spare and jack in the trunk. The transmission, alternator and original Carter carburetor were recently rebuilt, the radiator was re-cored and all 4 brakes, shocks and 14″ radial tires are new. A complete tune-up was also performed. She is road ready when you are.
