"As close to stock as possible." Boy, does that radiator/shroud look out of place. Is that B5/B5?

Also, at the risk of being "that guy," isn't the purple RR horn from 69 and up?


Earning every penny of that moderator paycheck.

Yep black horn and only one. They did have an Electric blue that was very close to B5 and the plate behind the master cylinder should be black an upgrade to electronic ignition. All easy fixes if the buyer wants to

I once fought one of those master cylinder plates from under the dash of an assembled car. It was simple but there was nothing easy about it. eek

It drives me nuts when I see that painted body color or worse still with overspray all over it. I saw a car on ebay the other day that looked like they'd tried to paint around it with a brush and botched the job.


Everybody makes fun of a hillbilly until they need something fixed.

Color should be & looks like Q1 - B5 is lighter.
'69-up wheels, '67-'68 didn't use trim rings.
Painted over access covers, too; lots of incorrect underhood details.
Seems to be missing the seat medallions, which are near-impossible to find.
That's about what's around for 25K nowadays, though, unless one gets very lucky.

But it's got nice colors & except underhood looks rather presentable.
I'm guessing the guy doesn't know Mopars very well.

I inquired about it. Car is not #'s matching and has no fender tag. Front frame rails and 1 rear replaced along with some panels. Anyone besides myself think this is more a 15 to 20K car at best?

1970 Barracuda Gran Coupe 440-4 BBL 727 AT 3.23 SG Lemon Twist
1971 Cuda 340-4 BBL 4spd 3.91 SG Curious Yellow

All #'s matching driving originals except the Gran Coupe.

unfortunately for the seller you're probably right. You can't build one for his asking price but RR's typically have never brought big $$ twocents beer

Replaced 3 out of 4 frame rails?
WOW,makes wonder just how bad was it to begin with . Based on prices Ive seen the past year. I don't think his price is to far out of reality

I've always had a pet peeve with before and after pictures before a purchase.

Looks okay but I have my doubts about the quality of the work that has been done on the car. I don't think I'd be interested in buying a car like that.
