Rough Fish: 1972 Plymouth Barracuda

72-cuda-1

Rough but complete, this 1972 Barracuda is “barn fresh” looking for its next home. Although there are some rust issues, the body of this ‘Cuda is pretty solid overall. Packing a 340 V8 and a 727 Torque-flight this ‘Cuda is currently bid up to $5,300. Find it here on ebay out of Aiken, South Carolina.

72-cuda-2

The engine and bay are a little rough, and we are assuming from the color of the bay, that this ‘Cuda was originally white. Although there are many colors to be found all over this fish. The 340 cubic inch V8 will turn over but no effort has been made to get it running. There is no further information on the condition of the drivetrain or on a build sheet for this one.

72-cuda-3

The dash, steering wheel, and console, are in fair condition, but the rest of the interior is on the rougher side of things. There is certainly a moisture issue with this ‘Cuda, as the driver side floor is very rust and what is left of the floor is very wet. There is various surface rust on the rest of the floors, and the trunk floor has a various array of holes. The passenger side floor looks much better than the driver side. So at the least you are looking at front floor pans and a trunk floor. But let’s face it, what car from this era doesn’t need some trunk floor work?

72-cuda-4

Perhaps not the ‘cuda of our dreams, but this one certainly has potential, and the 72-74 cars have certainly become more popular over time. Would you pick up this ‘Cuda project? What would you do with this ‘Cuda?

    If you have the skills / patients / $$$ then any classic is worth the effort to get it back road worthy. Cuda’s are definitely worth the effort.

    Quick. Call Graveyard Karz.. Mark loves to restore rotted out hulks produced by Mopar..

    Seriously, if you’re into these great oldies, it’s worth the effort due to their demand.. This one would finish out nicely with some serious effort..

    Great find..

    not that bad, but the 72 340,motors where junk for the most nothing like the early ones. my high school ride was a 71 340 duster red with the blacked out340 wedge hood 340 4spd x heads and all. Right now I I’m working on a fc7 factory buckets, stick and a 8 3/4 rear. I think it was a twister. anybody know if the fender tag has a code for that ?
