Barn Full Of Sweet Mopars And More!

We know that a “Barn Find” has come to encompass many sorts of finds even when the “barn” is a garage or a storage unit or even a field. If you want to see one awesome barn full of mostly Mopars, check out this YouTube video of an East Coast barn. For the record the caption is part of the video. While the term ‘Cuda began as a casual nickname for the potent Plymouth Barracuda, Plymouth formalized it with the ‘Cuda option package in 1969. Read more here. But enough about that! If this 340-powered ‘Cuda is wearing factory-applied FM3 Panther Pink / Moulin Rouge paint, it would be one 126 painted in this snappy color. The 340 was one of the hottest small-blocks going at the time.

This 1968 Dodge Superbee is the performance version of the popular Coronet, and Dodge’s version of the Plymouth Road Runner. According to Barrett-Jackson only 125 Superbees got Mopar’s Holy Grail of muscle-car motors, the 426 cid Street Hemi packing 425 horsepower. Luckily moisture was protected from escaping the car by a thin veil of plastic. Just kidding folks, but if these cars go up for sale (not planned at this time) a closer inspection will be needed. This one doesn’t look too heinous, but do you think *any* Hemi car is worth saving?

Another ‘Cuda wearing what might be Deep Burnt Orange Metallic… or primer… or whatever rattle-can paint was on sale at the hardware store that week.

This 1966 Dodge Coronet has seen better days. Who can tell the best yarn about how a car gets damaged in the left front, has a junk-yard fender fitted, then, what… another car falls on it in the barn? While some ’66 Coronets had 383s or the (new for ’66 ) 426 cid Hemi, its “V8” badge suggests this one left the factory with either the 318 Polysphere or the almost-as-boring 361.

Other cars in the barn include a 1972 Plymouth ‘Cuda, 1970 Plymouth Satellite, 1967 Dodge Coronet, a wrecked 1970 Plymouth GTX, and more! It’s not all Mopar fun, though. A 1965 Mustang is the only animal of its kind in the barn. These classics may soon escape the barnyard into the light of day, and a gaggle of crazed bidders, but until then they remain shrouded in mystery… and spores. Bring a trailer? Yeah, and a respirator mask too.

OK all you eagle-eyes, take a close look at the video and let us know if you spot something the Archeologists missed.

    A friend of mine owns a 70 Convertible ‘Cuda. Originally it was equipped with a 383, but years ago he installed a 70 B-Body Hemi. He paid 8K for the car in 86 knowing the rarity. One of 137 Convertibles built that year. He is also the proud owner of a 69 Factory Hardtop Hemi Roadrunner. Black with white interior. He estimates that there were approximately 10K Hemi Cars produced between 66-71, all told. There are some great cars in the lot, my favorite would be the 68 Hemi Bee of course. Can you tell I’m a fan of the Pentastar? ;-)

    Boring 361 you say ????
    I had a hi-po 361 In a Dodge Dart that used to out run about all of my high school friend’s cars. It would burn the tires off out of the hole and had a lot of top end. I had it up to a top speed of around 140 mph. Anyway, it wasn’t boring for sure !
    I won a lot of races with it. Sure miss it too.

      I have won quite a few races with my stock 361 pushbutton in my 1963 Fury.

    My dad use to frequent police end of quarter auctions. This included ex- police
    as well as stolen/abandoned vehicles.

    In the early 70s he brought home a 57 Plymouth 4 door fitted with a hemi. He had paid (12 rand or) $1 for it.
    It had a strange autobox with a clutch. Seemed like a 2 speed. It was in original and good condition.
    I was about 11 yrs old and my brother 13. We drove it around the neighbourhood unlicenced, for a few weeks before he sold it.
    That was my my first drive in a hemi, at the time when the family were racing SBC stock cars.
