Engine swaps have been around since the earliest days of hot rodding. More sophisticated builders pioneered chassis swaps to get more performance and less weight. But rare is the car that can blend two completely different vehicles as seamlessly as this 1973 Plymouth Barracuda. You see, that retro body is a little deceitful, as this vivid coupe has been lovingly upgraded with a custom suspension, six gears and 10 cylinders of Viper power! Looking for a way to upgrade your weekends? You’re going to love this trick MoPar!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Motoring through life as a solid slice of Americana, this Plymouth is the beneficiary of a 3-year, rotisserie build that was equal parts restoration and equal parts modification. Its carefully aligned panels feature fantastic DuPont Hot Hues Amethyst Reflection Purple that’s been accented with brilliant Viper billboards. And a slew of distinctly Chrysler details add spades of vintage class. At the front of the car’s broad-shouldered profile, a red-trimmed grille hangs modern headlights above modern driving lamps and a ’71 ‘Cuda bumper. At the top of that grille, a black-trimmed hood fronts chip-free glass, which balances polished stainless frames between polished sport mirrors. At the sides of that hood, factory marker lamps frame satin door handles and ’71 ‘Cuda fender gills. And at the back of the car, a ’71 ‘Cuda valance hangs bright taillights between a prominent spoiler, a ’71 ‘Cuda bumper and a custom roll pan that’s fitted to polished exhaust tips.

ENGINE

The fire-breathing V10 rumbling under this car’s trick hood needs little introduction. Displacing a massive 8.4 liters and turning 600 horsepower into 560 lb./ft. of blissful torque, the 2008 Viper mill is one of the most outrageous powerplants ever bolted between two fenders. This Barracuda’s builders knew its coveted big block would be the car’s focal point, so they went out of their way to dress things up with plenty of polished bits. Naturally, the engine is absolutely immaculate, from its polished air tubes and dual drive-by-wire throttle bodies all the way down to its Mopar Performance ECU and beefy Be Cool radiator. And everything around the motor appears restoration-fresh, looking almost as clean as the day this Plymouth rolled out of the paint booth.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Behind the car’s first-class power, a Tremec TR6060 6-speed drives a durable Dana 44 around big, 3.45 gears. Holding that versatile drivetrain off the ground is a custom suspension, which incorporates modern coil-overs and a heavy-duty rear sway bar into a Corvette rear-half and AlterKtion front-clip. At the front of those bones, power rack-and-pinion steering makes the best of turns. At the corners of that rack, Hydratech Hydroboost jolts Wilwood calipers, which cinch drilled and slotted rotors. At the center of the car’s over-restored floors, free breathing, true-dual exhaust shuttles spent gases through polished Pypes M-80 mufflers. And everything rolls on ION 625s, which spin 225/45R17 Federal Super Steels in front of 255/55R17 Federal Super Steels.

INTERIOR

Open this well-done MoPar’s doors and you’ll find a fully restored cockpit that provides an exceptionally attractive driving environment. There’s crisp PROCAR buckets, which complement a wide bench and bright purple belts. A subdued dash centers Vintage Air climate control between Auto Meter telemetry and Viper foot pedals. A short shifter surfs a custom console, which plants navigation-enriched audio beside a custom tach and small cupholder. And the driver hangs on through a speed-drilled steering wheel, which laps a modern, tilting column.
