        This thread hopefully will get folks to post under $5k buys. Not sure this specific car is "The one" for me? But maybe someone here?

            Earl Scheib used to paint cars like that for 69.95. If you didn't want the headlights painted you better tape em off yourself.

              It is (what believe) the pinnacle of A-body Barracuda's? A '68 fastback. if given a choice on an A-body Barracuda? That's the year and platform I would choose. JMO.

                Of production? Yes. But there was a race hemi option only for that year. With a '68? You would have that clone option? (If you had the $$) The only A-body that even had that available. (That and the '68 Dodge Dart)

                  The 50 Darts and 50 Barracudas were considered production. That was the whole point of making that many. To qualify as production vehicles.

                    That was just to make NHRA standards. They were not street legal from the factory. (Although I'm guessing some states rules were easier to get around?) But they didn't meet US safety standards.
