Reflections

This journal was put together to document both the history and the restoration of the car. The entire journal through the restoration was created after the fact. I will continue to update it as work is done or in its travels.


1967 Plymouth Barracuda - Fastback

Mothers Day - May 11, 1969 - Simi Valley, CA

This is the earliest picture I have of the car.

(that is me seen over the car)

Although it wasn't the first Mopar that I owned it was the one that defined me as MrMopar! My '67 Barracuda was given to me by my grandfather in 1985 where it served as my daily driver through 1991. Much more about the history and restoration can be found in the journal.

Enjoy, Alan

I See Red

February 3, 2018

For the last couple months I have been sorting hardware from five different engines. Along with the hardware I have been collecting all the other parts needed to complete the new engine. I did find a replacement valve cover, all the red parts were given a base coat of red. Dupli-Color Chrysler Red was used but I'm not happy with it. In the past I have used PlastiKote International Harvester Red, so I thought I'd use it again, couldn't find it so I'm trying some different brand to find the one I like best.

While at it I had some parts powder coated, new plug wires, coil, voltage regulator and a bunch of other new parts were acquired.
