1970 Hemi Cuda Recreation is the product of an original 1973 Barracuda 318 C.I. automatic with AC from NC with no rust, no bondo, no replacement panels. This recreation started as clean, rust free, original paint and sheet metal 1973 Barracuda that was worthy of a Hemi! So in 2000 the process began by obtaining a Mopar Performance 472 C.I. 525 HP Crate Hemi Engine and a Hemi K-Frame. A Mopar muscle car mechanic completed this job. The main obstacle was hooking up the AC using the original evaporator, condenser etc. Had to remove the RV2 compressor and replace with a smaller new Mopar C171. Every attempt was made to take the 1973 Barracuda and transform this clean car into a 1970 Hemi Cuda. The bumpers were replaced with the 1970 bumpers, the decals were pulled off replacing with the 1970 Hockey Stick decal package, the K-frame was upgraded to a Hemi K-Frame, Brake booster was changed out to fit the Hemi, rear end was upgraded to a 3:23 and new leaf springs and the front end received a new Moog suspension parts with larger torsion bars etc. Two obvious outside items that were not changed on the Barracuda that give up the fact that it is not a 1970 are the side markers and grill.
This barracuda has had all systems gone thru mechanically, electrically and everything rebuilt or replaced.
