Details by owner
Up for sale is one the finest examples of a Barracuda fastback around the Bay Area. Hard to find them to begin with, let alone in this shape. I have owned this car since 1998, when it had 36,000 ORIGINAL MILES, now has 63,000. I have more in parts than I am asking for this car.

Car was stripped to bare metal, front/rear glass popped, all trim removed and repainted in original PPG Matador Red. New white tape stripe from Phoenix Graphix installed. I have pictures of how much filler remained on the body before primer went on. It was only floated enough to make it straight. NO RUST ANYWHERE. NONE. Car was in amazingly great shape. The bottom of the car was stripped to bare metal and painted satin black. I found that not many Barracudas(all 3 body styles included) had this interior/exterior color combo from the factory, so that's why I chose to restore it to stock colors.

I stripped the interior down to the floor pans and they were PERFECT. I stripped the bottom of the car to bare metal and found ZERO rust. All the sheetmetal on this car is original and in great shape. I have owned a restoration shop for the past 12 years and have put well over 500-600 hours in this car.
