                The white one is the 65 Barracuda I grew up in that made me fall in love with cars. Commando 273 4 speed.

                The black primer is mine I bought in 1979 for parts but realized it wasn't a bad car and put it together with the engine out of my Dad's car. I sold that car in 1981 for $400 the guy still owns it till this day.

                      First picture is when I trailered it home full of parts in December 2018. It looked like crap, but it's a rust-free Texas car. the second & third pictures are from a few days ago.....almost finished!
                      I'll be looking to sell....losing my storage.

                          @RON REAGLE I love the way your Barracuda sits! What leaf springs do you have in the rear? Most Barracudas are ass draggers....lol. I'm one of those weird people who typically doesn't like wrong year colors on cars, but the FJ5 looks awesome on your car. My 65 Barracuda is supposed to be the Baby Blue color, and I just can't bring myself to put it back that color. I promise I won't copy you though....lol.

                          Whoever built this car used a lot of nice parts on it. I didn't build it I'm just putting my touch on it. There are standard looking springs and best of all standard shocks as well. I recently bought Billlstein shocks for all 4 corners but haven't installed the rears yet. I wasn't crazy about the color when I first found the car but my opinion has changed. I LOVE IT!!!

                          By the way go to YOUTUBE and type in 1965 Barracuda My car was on there 8 years ago for sale when the guy I bought it off of found it.

                          Go ahead and paint yours FJ5 it's not like we're neighbors!!! I'd like to see it when it's done!

                                    Thanks! I like yours too! Details on mine: Aluminum 433 c.i. 3rd gen Hemi with Hilborn injection, dry sump oil system, Tremec 6-speed with PPG sequential shift conversion, full frame with cage, independent rear suspension with Hammerhead center section and differential cooler, Detroit Speed Alumaframe front suspension, Alcon brakes, Viking active shock control, Haltech controller to integrate engine, transmission, traction control, etc. It's set up for road racing, but will see consistent street duty, with Vintage Air and sound system. I might even add a cupholder. Of course, you already know about the hood. 47688658_2066241620281115_319111027801194496_n.jpg
