Dan Frazzini from Aurora, Colorado, picked up this particular Barracuda back in 2013. As the story goes, its original owner just finished restoring the car and turning it into an AAR 'Cuda clone before tragically passing away. His wife decided to let the car go, trading it in for a new Ford Edge at a dealer. Dan happened to be in contact with the sales manager at the dealer and ended up trading his 1971 Challenger to get the 1970 Plymouth Barracuda.

Sold* at PBCCA Palm Beach 2005 - Lot #118 1970 PLYMOUTH BARRACUDA AAR CUDA CLONE . I would like to receive information from Barrett-Jackson Partners. Go To Live Stream.

In 1970 , you could buy a Plymouth Barracuda in one of three flavors–the standard Barracuda , the luxury-oriented Gran Coupe, and the knockout-punching Cuda . This car started life as a 318-powered V8 Gran Coupe. But you can bet, if it had a heart, it would yearn to be a weapons grade Hemi Cuda .

Dan wasn't totally into the AAR clone thing, so he decided to put his own spin on it, telling us, "Since it was originally a 318 Barracuda, I wanted to have some fun with it, so I went with a restomod theme." He started by upgrading the brakes to Wilwood hydraulic discs and ditching the stock-style suspension with a full Hotchkis system, topping it all off with a set of 18-inch wheels.

Under the hood is where it really gets fun, though. "I then went one step further by swapping the 340 for a new Gen III 392 Hemi," Dan said. At the time, he also upgraded the 727 transmission to a manual valve body, but it just wasn't good enough. He then went to Jamie Passon of Passon Performance for a fully built 833 OD transmission with a custom synchro setup.

In the end, the build turned out to be a complete success. "This car has a great combination of classic Mopar muscle with just the right amount of modern performance to make it a fun car to drive anywhere," Dan said.

1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe Turned High-Tech Restomod with LS1 Power .
The owner of this 1940 Ford is reliving fond high school memories of his first car, and then some, with this high-tech LS1 powered restomod cruiser.Martin's first car at age 16 was a 1940 Ford that got the nickname "Thumper" for its severe hot rod rake that was likened to the rabbit in the movie "Bambi." He only held onto the car for two short years before needing to sell it for college funds. Decades later, an old high school friend of Martin's came across a 1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe sitting in a barn in southern Illinois.
