Regarding This Vehicle

1970 Plymouth Barracuda Grand Coupe Convertible Hemi Tribute

Date code correct 1970 Hemi drivetrain from the Carter carburetion to the Dana rear axle! Factory 4-speed, power steering, power disc brakes, rally gauges with tachometer, heavy duty Hemi suspension, and more! Absolutely gorgeous restoration in complete nut-and-bolt, rotisserie fashion! Everything new and wonderfully show worthy! Clear a shelf in the garage for the trophies on this one!

The pinnacle of the Muscle Car era seemed to have peaked in 1970, when American big block supremacy dominated the streets! Style lines across all manufactures were arguably the best they have ever been, with bold colors, graphics, and tons of options to please any buyer! At Plymouth, the newly styled E-body platform was very distinctive and the Barracuda was now available with the powerful Hemi race engine from the factory! These fabled dual quad, high horsepower engines were race proven in NASCAR, and were hardly detuned for street use making them a rather menacing encounter should you ever be called out at a red light! Because of the high cost when new, only 652 Hemi ‘Cuda Hardtops would be manufactured, and surprisingly, just 14 Convertibles. All of which became historically collectible in later years, with the convertibles fetching multi-millions of dollars whenever they appear on the open market. With the demand far exceeding the supply, many collectors must settle for the next best thing, a well-executed example it tribute (replica) form. The example listed here was thoroughly restored in rotisserie, nut-and-bolt fashion with stunning results! Using all correct components, including a 1970-date coded Hemi V8 and matching drivetrain, it will forever turn heads at car shows for many years to come! A $2 Million appearance at a fraction of the price!

Offered here is a splendid 1970 Plymouth Barracuda Gran Coupe Convertible fully restored to become a Hemi clone with all the bells and whistles! Beginning with a California-sourced specimen with only 38,264 miles on the odometer, Canadian resident Tom E. Skjonsberg shipped this already rare 1 of 17 Barracuda Gran Coupe Convertibles factory fitted with a 318ci-2V V8, 4-speed, deluxe Gran Coupe gear, and rallye equipment, back home and decided to take it up a notch! Once in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada in 2003, a complete rotisserie restoration would commence, largely in part because he already had a complete 1970 date-code correct 426ci Hemi engine, transmission, and rear end begging for the right car to transplant it into for a proper tribute! Starting with a super solid car bearing factory paint code FE5- Rallye Red over White/Black interior along with a factory console-shifted 4-speed pistol grip manual transmission so no major alterations would be required, high back bucket seats, full Rallye instrumentation with dash tachometer, Rallye wheels, belt moldings, power folding white top, and more, careful attention went into transforming it into a remarkable Hemi tribute car inside and out!

Completed in February 2008, this absolutely outstanding example has been detailed to show winning caliber everywhere you look! Gorgeous exterior paint even when looking underneath, new interior leather upholstery, carpet, & convertible top, all new Heavy-Duty suspension, complete braking system, fresh fuel delivery from the new stainless steel tank forward, new tires, correct exhaust system with mufflers & resonators with tips, all new wiring, weather stripping, and on and on! It is virtually new in every respect with just 54 driven miles on the odometer! Power is delivered from a January 26th, 1970 cast Hemi engine bearing casting number 2468330-2 RL, dated-coded correct 1970-1971 Carter 650cfm twin 4-barrel carburetion, 1970 date-coded 4-speed transmission, and 4.10 Hemi Super Trak-Pak Sure Grip Dana 60 rear axle! Features include power disc brakes, power steering, power top with glass back window, high back bucket seat interior with center console, pistol-grip shifter, Shaker fresh air hood with lock down pins, body side Hemi call-out strips, Rallye instrumentation with 150mph speedometer/8k tachometer, front driving lights, dual chrome racing mirrors, chrome rear luggage rack, deluxe steering wheel with rim blow horn, carpeted floor mats, 15” rallye wheels wrapped in period correct Goodyear Polyglas GT F60-15 tires, front/rear seatbelts, fender-mounted turn signals, glove box lamp, and Chrysler Solid State pushbutton AM radio!

Since completion, it was trailered to shows where it accumulation multiple 1st Place Awards & trophies, including the Las Vegas 50th Anniversary of the Hemi in 2014! The engine was professionally rebuilt, tuned, and dyno-tested by Lee Brothers Performance Specialties in 2003 and is said to have more like 300 break-in miles before the odometer was hooked up upon completion. Included with the car will also be the Galen Govier authenticity report highlighting the original car’s factory options, the factory original fender & dash tags still intact, copy of the original build sheet, and an very sharp hand painted show board on tinted Plexiglas! Now it represents an opportunity for the right collector to have what most couldn’t have in 1970, or realistically even today in any collection! Considering the astronomical cost of the restoration alone, or justify the cost of the 1970 Hemi drivetrain all by itself, this presents an incredible opportunity hands down! Drive it, show it, and truly enjoy this one unlike any true original! Please feel welcome to contact with questions or offers. Thanks for looking as always!
