67 Barracuda, owned since 68 by the same owner

Survivor with about 160 thou miles, 6cyl, black and yellow plates, only had 1100 miles when purchased.

Thats the closest I've been to a one owner survivor lately... and that is really cool. Nothing yet in terms of restoration, that may be in the future, but the costs of restoration are kinda steep... for those of us who aren't wealthy.

Very nice to see this survivor fires up instantly, and doesn't hesitate to go for a drive. Really cool owner, Chris, has made a floor shifter when the column mechanism went south, and put these super cool 60's mags on, and hasn't messed with this car at all... why? It never needed to have all the wiring screwed up like we always find has happened... no aftermarket radio, just the orig AM still in place, no cb aftermarket tach.

I think it's way cool that Chris hasn't changed the cuda from it's "As Made" condition, other than to remove the wheel well trim to allow for modern bigger tires.
