          So this is titled as a '67 Barracuda rebodied from a '68 parts car that was a 68 Formula S? What vin is on the dash and does it match the vin on the title?
          Thanks

              1978
              Oil/Water all look good.
              Trans removed for Beefing up and never put back in.
              It ran great when parted = I went to Track with him and
              watched it run in 78.
              With Slicks it would have run in 11's
              Trans began to slip on 2/3 by end of night
              At that time he had 20 plus Mopars in his collection
              and never got around to this one again

                Sorry I see nothing to signify a 68?? OR an "S". Where is the vin tag located? On dash or door frame?
                Not nitpicking, just pointing out differences(steering wheel too)

                  The VIN is on the body in from of Drivers Door and is correct for this car and matches all
                  other body #. The VIN on the dash is from 70 Duster 340 that dash came from and will be
                  removed prior to sale as it is not to this car. Remember I just towed this back from So Cal
                  and have not had time to do anything with it. i will put title on 67 in my name if required and
                  take all responsibility for this sale.

                      The 1968 was wrecked in the back (He owned it as well). The entire running gear and hood/fenders/doors
                      went into the 1967. All suspension pieces /8 3/4 Rear Springs etc. The car is a 67 Body
                      and tag is on the door frame. Sorry for the confusion = I did not build it this way and
                      am just selling it for my friends widow. I will put title in my name and take all liability and
                      responsibility for this sale. The 67 doors and hood are included in sale. Hopefully I can
                      find the 383 engine and original trans in his shops. I am verry sorry for any confusion =
                      I guess you should call this a Tribute Car/Clone? I am a racer not a restorer type
                      guy. I am trying to do the best I can under difficult circumstances = I am Old!

                            We delivered the Roadrunner Tuesday to new owner.
                            We are dealing with several people on Cuda...No Deposit
                            as of yet!

                            We will sell for $6,500.00 less engine/trans.

                            I can deliver 700 miles or less for expenses upon sale of Cuda.

                              I decoded the engine block #
                              It is a 1964 casting 426 Wedge
                              This engine made a lot of Horsepower
                              It ran 12.7 @ 108 on tiny F70/14 tires
                              It might have run in 11's on slicks?
                              I have now put 14 inch Formula S Black
                              wheels with BFG TA tires with only 1000 miles
                              on it.
