So Tony and I started the hunt looking for a rust free 68 Barracuda parts car. We only wanted a 68 so everything is correct with all stamped numbers on the sheet metal panels to match 68 Barracuda. Tony found a 68 Barracuda in Arizona I thought, but it was actually from California . Now the cutting drilling spot welds begins.
Going to start with some pictures of the car




So did that beautiful original California 68 Barracuda you posted on here awhile back and deleted become the parts car for this?




No, I sold that car. We found another one ,not as nice but rust free shell.




Glad to hear that car is alive and well,it was way to nice to use as a parts car...




That car was the cleanest rust free car I have ever seen. Not even surface rust anywhere. Just had some hazing on the metal that that was bare.

Nice work!
I'd guess this is one of the few cars these days that actually makes sense to do this level of work on. Glad to see it. I wonder why the inside of the body wasn't blasted too before the floor went on. I guess that most will still be able to be reached though.

The inside panels on the inside where super clean, like new. Remember this car never driven in the rain alway in a garage.
