1970 Plymouth Barracuda ‘Terracuda’

While Plymouth sadly went the way of the dodo in the year 2001, they’ll still go down in the annals of history for having created some of the most iconic motor vehicles of all time. Their best, however, may be their Barracuda – an American Muscle Car that is a favorite amongst restorers and customizers. In fact, one – a 1970 example named the ‘Terracuda’ – just popped up on our radar.

Interestingly enough, this project was born when Chip Foose, customizer extraordinaire, was asked to built a car based on a customer’s Breitling luxury wristwatch. Done up in gold and brown, this retro-styled automotive monster is nothing shy of gorgeous – which is only bolstered by the presence of a 6.4L 392 HEMI crate engine under the custom hood. That means, along with its beauty, this beast has a whopping 485 horsepower. It also got its stance lengthened by 3 inches, had a Corvette C5 front suspension swapped in, and received a Ford 9″ rear end with a four link. And that’s just the inside – as the cabin was also done up in Ferrari factory leather. All told, Foose says this is the finest Mopar vehicle to ever leave his shop. We’re inclined to agree.
