Hey guys,

I'm Evan, I'm 25 and live in San Diego.
I recently blew up the flathead on my old 51 Plymouth, and just sold it.

I just picked up a 1964 Plymouth Barracuda, for $4k.
It's a pretty cool car, painted black/gold in the Hemi Under Glass paint scheme (I'm assuming thats what the PO was going for??).

It's got a pretty nice interior that still needs lots of little things fixed.
It was an original six cylinder car, but has had a 273 swapped in, with a 4 speed w/ Hurst shifter.
It's got straight pipes that are way too low and drag the crappy mufflers, so exhaust will have to be sorted out first. Sounds great though!

Anyways, this is my first Cuda, and 2nd Mopar, so I'll be cruising around for all sorts of information.

Its going to be my daily driver while I fix/restore it so it should be a fun project.

Heres some pictures, what do you guys think?

look like you hooked a really nice 64 fish, I think you have a very nice car that will take very little to make a great driver or show car. Lots of luck with it and I'm sure you will get all the answers you will need to help you with any question you will have. Welcome to the group.
