This is going to be an exciting project !

Take one original 1971 Barracuda, 318 4speed, purple and white convertible and give it a slight upgrade.....

Watch out for this correct appearing OE restoration including the famed 426 HEMI backed by a heavy duty 18 spline Hemi four speed and followed by a nice 3:54 Dana 60 rear axle.  All wrapped up in fresh coats of " In Violet" FC7 purple paint, white top and interior and of course the famous white billboard stripes...

A few more nuts and bolts to remove and it's ready for media blasting...

John at Fishburn/Proctor in Rockwood ON, made sure there was none of the old paint and undercoating left behind. She's as clean as a whistle now !


With very minimal rust repair required, it's directly off to the body shop.
Terence and his crew at Saunders Customs Body shop in Acton ON. will get her looking new in no time !


No more seeing RED...a quick trip to Techno-Strip in Brampton ON makes cleaning the old paint off of the exterior body panels a breeze !


Quickly work has begun on the underside. Cleaning up some previous shoddy work, and taking care of the pin holes in the floor and frame.  Also adding the special HEMI reinforcement plates at this time....
