Description

Reluctantly I have decided to auction my 1970 Plymouth Barracuda in RARE FM3 Panther Pink. This car is the only one known to exist and could possibly have been the only oddball like this built. It is a factory /6, not the 225, oh no that's too much power, how about the 198 /6 !?! It is also a 3 speed manual on the floor not column. It has practically no options, such as manual steering, manual brakes, no A/C, about the only option on the fender tag was A93 which is a coupe package, which deleted the rear side windows from being operable! But somehow this car got checked off in the mid year high impact color panther pink. Talk about an odd but super cool car! It spent most of it's life in Texas before being brought to Arizona. There have only been 3 owners. The car will crank and run and I have driven it about 10 miles around town. Currently the gas tank was leaking so I temporarily put a gas can up front, but a good barracuda gas tank is included, just need a few minutes to be installed. I will if I get time. The engine does not have the VIN number on the block, but is a correct 198, so I'm not sure if its matching numbers or not. The trans has the VIN on it and is definitely original.. The rear is a 3.23 non sure grip. The body is pretty much flawless, there is not any rust on the body whatsoever.. It is as solid as you will fine. Frame rails are MINT. The only thing this car needs besides typical resto is there are some small holes in the front floor pans, and the center of the trunk pan needs replaced. You will not find a better body on a 1970 barracuda project car. As you can see, the pink is rather dull and could use a respray, interior needs seat covers carpet and headliner. The wheels and tires are in nice shape. You could either make this a show stopper by fully restoring it and keeping it a /6, or you could leave it as is and take it to shows and the crowds will come just to check it out as it sits. OR you could pt a 440, change the 3 speed to a 4 speed and have a wicked Cuda clone. The options are endless on this car. One thing is for certain, pink on any 1970 mopar is rare and highly desirable, but a /6 FM3 car? Pretty crazy.. So if this is such a cool and rare car, why would I sell it? Well truth is I just purchased a #'s matching 69 charger R/T SE that needs a little love, and since chargers are my favorite, this one has to go. You will not find a cooler/different car out there. And it's a 70 model to boot. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I reserve the right to end this auction early at any time for any reason, as the car is for sale locally. Thanks for looking and good luck! There is NO RESERVE on this car, no games, high bidder will own it. PLEASE SERIOUS BIDDERS only I do not have time for games. I have a clean and clear title in MY name ready to transfer. Also included with the car are the owner's manual, a MINT completely original fender tag still on the car, a perfect build sheet, and a copy of the 2nd owner's title from 1973.
