Hi and welcome to the forum. Nice car! Looks like a twin to mine. What color is the interior? Any options? I'm sure you'll enjoy the car.

thank you for all the welcomes!
we're running lists, priority first; got the engine tuned and carb adjusted, looking at the brakes and rust next and have just had a ton of fun driving her around town.

don: the interior is black. the original exterior: barracuda silver (which we plan to bring back once we've hammered out all the rust).

oh yeah, and the original am radio still works! what fun.

I remember the day I got my Barracuda home, I lay down inside the back and looked up at the stars at night through the rear window......until the dust from the dry-rotted headliner and the smell of mold forced me out....but it was a memorable moment!
