eBay I realized I had left out some info and didn't want to add it right before the auction's end so I ended the previous auction 12 hours early in order to start a new listing. I have added 4 new pictures to the listing and more info below so please read it all.
This car is listed on the Kansas City and Oklahoma City C-list.
This 1970 Barracuda would make a REALLY COOL rat rod! It originally came with the 335hp 4bbl 383, 4 speed manual transmission, bucket seats, and B5 blue paint and interior. I bought it as a bare shell; everything that could be unbolted had been removed. Although it was stripped, the frame rails were pretty solid so I decided to try to save it. It took me 3 years to get it bought and another year to piece it back together. After buying it, I went to a local guy’s place to buy some parts for my other 70 Barracuda. While I was looking through his stash of Barracuda doors, I saw the driver’s side door from this Barracuda, which was unmistakable due to the billboards that had been painted on both quarters and doors. I showed the guy the picture of this Barracuda shell and he said “I parted that car out in the 1980’s!” He still had the fender tag so I acquired it. I asked him if he still had the dash with VIN, but he told me he had sold it a few years before. He gave me some info so I tracked down the owner of the dash. The dash pad/frame had been sold but he had kept the VIN tag, which I bought. Since I had the door sticker (on the original door), the VIN tag, and the fender tag, a clear Kansas title was obtained. The cabin floor pans have some holes; you could probably patch the floors but it would be much better to replace the floor pans. The front sub frame rails, rear sub frame rails, and torsion bar cross member are all rock solid as far as rust goes. Both rockers are structurally solid but they have some cuts/punctures that could be patched (see pictures). The trunk pan is pretty solid but has some holes so should probably be patched or replaced. The tail light panel has rust on the lower edge where it overlaps with the trunk floor pan. The firewall is really solid. The lower trough below the windshield held water, so it will need repaired or replaced. The roof skin doesn’t have any holes but it does have pitting and some smaller dings. The dutchman’s panel has rust/pinholes were the vinyl top used to be. The rear window channels are pretty solid. The passenger side rear wheel inner tub and the floor pan under the rear seat looks like it was repainted at some point. The floor by the rear frame rail (under the rear seat) has been previously damaged. The last 4 pictures show the area from inside and outside. That passenger side rear frame rail is dented/wrinkled under the rear passenger seat. The driver’s side quarter panel has rust through on the pillar below the roof/quarter seam, so it will probably need replaced with a full quarter panel (the one from AMD that goes half way up the rear pillar). The hood, the passenger side door, and both front fenders came from my other 1970 Barracuda. The fenders are very solid. They have some dings/dents but they are definitely savable. The driver's side door is straight and solid. The passenger door is solid but dented on the forward edge, so I am including a new AMD door skin. I don’t have the front or rear valances. When I bought the car, it didn’t have a rear end or rear suspension. I bought and installed an e body rearend housing and used leaf springs. The front K member is a modified B body K member that I had laying around so I bolted it in along with control arms/links so I could make it roll. I bought used original Barracuda wiring, a heater box, and some seat foams (to be used as templates) which are all included. The decklid is from my other 70 Barracuda; it has some rust but is savable. I am including the grille support cage from my other 70 Barracuda as well. The bucket seats and dash frame/pad also came from my other 1970 Barracuda (which was a Gran Coupe w/ air conditioning). The doors have glass and I am including the quarter glass pieces but I don't have the mechanisms for the quarter glasses. I don’t have the original engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, grill, radiator, bumpers, taillights, hood hinges, trunk hinges, trim, rear window, windshield, etc. The wheels/tires in the picture are not included. The car will come with some random wheels that I’ve collected over the years. You might bring some rollers if you have them.
I will include a brand new AMD passenger door skin and a new AMD 4 speed tunnel hump. I bought them for my other Barracuda, but will include them in this sale. I am including a spare drivers side door with glass and mechanism from my other car.
I have tracked the car through 5 of 6 owners since it was parted out. Each owner sold it when they couldn’t get a title sorted out. One of the owners removed the stampings from the radiator support and cowl. I have not been able to track down the stampings or who did it. Obviously the VIN number, door VIN sticker (and unique paint scheme), and fender tag options corroborate and prove the VIN belongs to the car. I just wanted to point it out. I have a clear Kansas title and fender tag but I do not have the broadcast sheet.
The car must be picked up in person within 14 days of the auction's end. I would prefer that the buyer see the car in person before taking it home. If you have any questions, please let me know. A $300 non refundable deposit is due within 3 days of the auction's end. The balance must be paid in cash at time of pickup.
