This is a grass-roots muscle car and an absolute pleasure to drive. This '72 Barracuda was born a 318 car but has been hot-rodded with a built 440 V8 and matching 727 trans with 'cuda treatment!  The Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum is the fitting location for many of our photos of this classic Barracuda. Be sure to visit the Flight Museum if you find yourself in Dallas, Texas. This Barracuda has a great look. Close inspection will reveal a very good driver quality paint job with some minor imperfections. The doors, hood, and trunk line up straight and the body panels show straight as well. The 440 Billboard stripes leave little doubt to what powers this Mopar.

Under the hood is this powerful 440. The gentleman who owns this car has had it for approximately 7 years and only put a few thousand miles on it. The engine was built and installed by the previous owner. It runs very strong. There is a mild race cam along with an aluminum intake, Holley 4 bbl, and long tube headers. According to the owner, the 727 TorqueFlite automatic transmission was also rebuilt to handle the increased power. You can tell this car makes great power when you drive it.

The original trim I.D. plate is intact.This car was born a high price class Barracuda in bright poly blue with the 318 2bbl. V8, 727 Torqueflite Automatic & factory air conditioning. This is a USA spec. car that was ordered with bucket seating as well. Further inspection reveal original sheetmetal throughout the inner fenders, core support, and firewall. The 318 is long  gone. This big block is dressed up with Mopar Performance finned aluminum valve covers. The interior is stock, featuring high-back bucket seating, factory gauges, and the original column shifter. There is also a trip of aftermarket gauges mounted under the dash for the oil pressure, water temperature, and voltage.

The 'cuda floor mats and door panel badging is a nice touch. The upholstery shows well front to back. The dash shows a couple of cracks. We also have a carpeted dash mat. The underbody looks to be in good solid shape. There are air shocks in the rear along with shackles. The flooring is intact throughout. This car has front disc brakes. There differential is an 8 3/4. The front end has been previously rebuilt. The rocker sills and lower quarter panels look to be in exceptional condition left & right. The trunk pan is overall solid. The inner fenders and real tail light panel are in good condition. A jack is mounted on the driver side. The trunk lid is solid. There is some paint damage around the trunk edges shown in the photos below, again still solid.

The custom dual exhaust sounds EXCELLENT, chrome tips exiting out of the rear valance pan. The black vinyl top is in good condition. The tires show plenty of tread all around. These are a basic 14-inch wheel with 245/60R14 raised while letter tires & 235/60R14s. The paint has a great eye appeal. This is just a real attractive muscle car.
