eBay I've owned this car since 1988 when it was purchased at the recommendation of a good friend who is the best mechanic north of Smoky Yunick's garage. I only drove the car on occasionally in Alabama until 1992 due to a reassignment from St. Louis to Seattle with the Feds and did not start driving it again until about 3 years ago. The car was garaged after the repaint in 1998 due to fuel tank problems. I detailed the engine bay about 3 years ago, rebuilt the brakes with new drums, pistons and DOT 5 fluid. The fuel tank and sending unit were replaced. I replaced the Dual Point distributor (saved) with a rebuilt unit at which time it developed running problems. My friend identified the problem as the defective rebuilt distributor and installed a Mopar electronic ignition as shown in pics. We've installed an electric choke Edelbrock 600 cfm carb to make it start and run correctly (original Carter AVS saved). Only a quick and dirty cleanup was done in order to take pictures and get the car listed. There are some small things that need attention since no car sits around for this long without needing just a few more things. The car is reliable and a blast to drive AND runs better than it ever did! The Hurst shifter works well and the car just needs to be driven.
Important Note: The current Cragars are missing a lug nut or two. I'd like to replace them with the original performance rims and wheel covers which were on the car when I bought it. I will install new tires and repaint the rims to your specification. Please call to discuss.
I've contacted the person (Garry Moran) I bought it from through the help of my friend John. I now know the entire history back to the original owner in New Jersey. Gary bought it from a performance car dealer in Birmingham where it wound up afer being traded by the original owner. Gary owned it for about a year, had fun, and needed the money.
All the chrome:(bumpers, wheels, exhaust tips,etc) is in great shape and will clean up. The vinyl is excellent except for the split along the stitching in the right seat. All the vinyl is serviceable but as in everything else could use cleaning and softening with leather/vinyl rejuvenator. Other things needing attention: Exhaust manifolds need to be sand blasted and powder coated and the heat riser valve repaired, a gasket kit needs to be installed on the left side wiper assembly, the tach doesn't work, blinker dash indicator lamps need replacing. The small things are enjoyable to do, as all the major lifting has been done.
I'm selling this car as I have three other Barracudas, which include another '69 Cuda with automatic, AC, pwr steering etc. And that one is more suitable for a 70 year old than the adrenaline producer this one is. I have a trailer to assist in transporting the car but prefer not to do much in the harsh weather we're having now. It's stored securely. PLEASE CALL ME at (256) 734-5078 for any questions you may have about car condition, payment and delivery options. If you text me I'll return the text as soon as possible. Emails may be more problematic. The car can be inspected if you know someone local near Cullman AL. I'll be driving back to Seattle and will not be able to return to Alabama for a month or two.
If you're reading this far, you know how rare this unmolested, numbers matching, muscle car is. It was minimally outfitted and engineered for the sole purpose of going quickly from a dead stop...and for cruising and showing off. I just never found the time, so it's time to move on. I haven't contacted Galen Govier yet and but will try to come up with production numbers and those still known to exist.

|“This Cuda may be the most original example of a 4spd Barracuda ever offered on eBay. The vehicle was repainted about 2000 and the minimal rust through on the lower rear quarters was repaired with metal. All original parts are there and are numbers matching. Documents (including original Dealer Invoice) validate mileage and show this is an Alabama/Georgia car except for the first three years in NJ and all three owners were responsible adults. The car has been stored inside since I purchased it in 1988 and has only "patina" rust on chassis components. The car is being listed after a minimal cleanup and before I've had time to really do great detailing. The car runs extremely strong. Please read the narrative below.” |
