Slide 1


Mark and his friend Jeff Duncan spent a lot of time visiting the Barracuda in "body shop jail" to get everything just right. Replacing the broken grille turned into quite a drama, the fragile originals have become quite rare; Mark eventually drove all the way to New Jersey to pick one up. Once the body was perfected, Jeff applied the Purple Rhapsody paint, along with the charcoal billboard stripe. Then they brought in Bill Roell to take care of the orange pinstriping.

Slide 2


Mark's brother Don just happened to have a spare Hemi sitting around, so when Mark bought the Barracuda, Don just gave it to him to replace the stock 340. Mark has treated the free Hemi right, starting with a .030" overbore, then topping it with a 6-71 supercharger and manifold from BDS. It also sports an all-COMP Cams Valvetrain and Mopar Performance cylinder heads.

Slide 3


The inside of the Barracuda is coordinated with the outside, with tweed black, gray, and purple upholstery, black carpet, and orange piping-all courtesy of Scott Taylor at Taylor's Upholstery. It also sports Auto Meter Ultra Lite gauges, a billet steering wheel, and a Hurst Quarter Stick shifter for the factory Torqueflite 727. The crowning jewel of the interior is a custom-made dimensional Mopar emblem in the rear window package tray.

Slide 4


Just in case you forget what's sticking out of the hood in front of you, Mark had this stainless steel dash badge crafted to fit perfectly into the space where the original "Barracuda" badge went.

Slide 5


The Barracuda gets around on Billet Specialties Street Lite wheels, wrapped in Mickey Thompson Sportsman tires. Mark is thinking about adding a wing and wheelie bars to the back of the car--what do you think?
