    1965 Barracuda 273 904 trans console shift. Stock 904 cable shift trans. Power steering. Was factory power brake car but previous owner was too lazy to rebuild the original booster and installed aftermarket booster that i didn't care for. Now has manual brakes that feel much better. Booster vac reservoir goes with car. "999" paint code late 1965 yellow car has been repainted and looks fantastic.

    This is an original LA built CA car that stayed in SIMI Valley area until Sept. 2019. I bought the car on "Bring a Trailer" and paid to have it shipped here. The car is incredibly clean.
    You can look back at previous BaT auctions, search on Barracuda and find this yellow car. Pictures are the way the car looks now.

    No receipts to prove it but the 273 has supposedly been rebuilt to Commando specs. It does have the factory 273 4 barrel intake and a new Edelbrock 500CFM carb. Starts and runs and drives perfectly. Very strong. Odo shows 76K and the car certainly represents like a 76K car. New single exhaust. NICE muscle mag 15" SLT wheels (the rear wheels and tires are slightly wider than the fronts). Air shocks. Stock 7 1/4 rear.

    Interior is right around 90%. Driver seat has some seam separations and headliner has small tear left rear.

    When I got the car the driveshaft front joint (trunnion) boot was torn so I had a NEW shaft built with normal u joints - that shaft is on the car now. Original shaft goes with car.

    There was no trunk prop so I installed the gas strut kit - works great.

    Known issues:
    PS pump drips a drop a day. Steering gear same. Rear diff drips from cover gasket. Dash lights are flaky - could use a new combo headlight dimmer switch. Radio works but has static from electric fuel pump (no, I don't know why he put on electric fuel pump). Left upper ball joint boot is torn.


    I planned on keeping this a long time (and paid a LOT for it and shipping). If you think BaT sets the market I paid $15,155 for this car. My brother has recently become seriously ill and I have had to take responsibility for his 1964 Sport Fury. I only have time and room for one hobby car.

    $12,000 or best CLOSE offer. If you have any interest send me a PM and we'll trade emails to get you more info.

          $10,750 until I put it away for the season.
          The final BaT bid on this car before I bid was around $14850. I paid 1800 to ship it from CA. Steal it while I'm in this mood.

            $9500. I'm an idiot. Take advantage of that.

              Sorry about the inbox.
              1) NO - the sport Fury is not for sale. The Barracuda is for sale or trade. The Sport Fury has been in the family since 1974. My brother just had a leg amputated and he had it delivered to my place for now (the sport fury - not the leg). I have room in the garage for both but would rather only have one in the garage.
              2) The Bring a Trailer auction ended at my bid of $15,155 and I had the car delivered from Simi Valley, CA. I think the bidding was pretty close to the value of the car. I just lowered the price to $9500. Ask questions and make an offer. Yes I know that seems silly but hey - people do silly things every day. I only really have time and room for one car and it'll be the Sport Fury forever.
              There's a couple FABO members very close to my house that would probably check the car out for a prospective buyer if you asked nicely.
              Thanks.

                $8900. Want it out of the way before I have to rent a storage garage for one of these cars.

                  Sold pending receipt of check. I'll change the title to sold when the check arrives.
