'67 Plymouth Barracuda - Realizing a Dream

1967 Plymouth Barracuda convertible

Jeremy's '67 Barracuda makes for an ideal daily driver, especially when the sun's out and the top's down.

If, like us, you call yourself an automotive enthusiast, chances are good that you share an appreciation for a wide range of makes and models. However, there's always one car that trumps them all, and makes your heart skip a beat the moment you lay eyes on it: your dream car.

For Jeremy Fleener, of Encino, California, that car is the 1967 Plymouth Barracuda convertible seen here. Jeremy recently stopped by our Huntington Beach showroom, and we took the opportunity to get to know him, snap a few photos, and learn more about the car.

From the rear, the classic lines of this restored Plymouth harken back to the golden age of American car design.

Jeremy picked up the white Barracuda a little over a year ago, in need of some restoration work and a little TLC. Fortunately, after spending some time at a local shop, the car was soon looking good as new. The original 273ci motor has been replaced with a higher-output 360ci V8, which is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. A fresh set of disc brakes improve safety and help the car stop on a dime. Otherwise, thanks to the addition of a few parts from the pages of our Mopar Catalog, the car remains in near-original showroom condition.

Although some owners would be content to take the car out only on weekends or special occasions, Jeremy loved the Barracuda so much, he opted to make it his daily driver. We can certainly appreciate this choice, since the top-down configuration and classic lines are a perfect match for the sunny Southern California weather.

Next time you're in the SoCal area, come by the showroom and let us check out your classic car! We'd love to get to know you, and possibly even take some pictures to be featured right here on Classic Industries News.
