1966 Plymouth Barracuda Gets Resto-Mod Treatment

Seeing old cars restored to their former glory is what we’re all about at Gas Monkey Garage. Whether it’s restored to period correct specs or given a resto-mod touch, seeing classics get a second life just hits us right in the feels and this 1966 Plymouth Barracuda is no exception.

The first thing you notice about this ‘Cuda is simply, it looks mean. Invoking images of the Green Hornet, a 1965 Chrysler Imperial Crown, this Plymouth is dripped in an Axalta brown-black finish with shaved and painted bumpers and an interior that matches featuring two-tone black and orange leather throughout. Additionally, giving the exterior a unique look is the use of LED headlights, a custom scoop and the use of Road Runner backup lights, turn signals and side mirrors.

An Edelbrock supercharged 5.7-liter HEMI powers this resto-mod creation and is also “outfitted with BBK ceramic-coated headers, custom cooling system and Milodon HEMI swap oil pan.” Other touches of modern include the Wilwood 4-piston brake calipers and master cylinder reservoir system, Aeromodive fuel pump and custom exhaust. As well as the amenities we’ve come to know and love today like Vintage Air and Rockford Fosgate sound system with a Kenwood head unit.

This masterfully crafted resto-mod will be just one of many crossing the block later this month at Barrett-Jackson’s Northeast auction.
