This 1966 Barracuda Formula “S” edition has the Original Rebuilt 273 CID 235 HP V8 motor in it with a 4-barrel carburetor and it is running very well. The motor still has its Original Valve Covers and a 440 Super Commando Air cleaner (the Original one was gone). Electronic Ignition was added to improve performance and reliability. If you know anything about these motors you know they are one of the best motors ever made and last forever. The 273 CID high compression engine (10 ½ to one) was rebuilt and punched out 30 over, both the engine and automatic transmission with a shift kit, have been rebuilt by a professional.

This car sounds Awesome with the new dual exhaust with a Flowmaster mufflers and correct chrome tips. Being the Formula S Edition it has the large factory Kelsey/Hayes front disk brakes. They are new and it stops and drives like it should.

The ODO shows 72,220 miles we were told were original miles, but actual miles are unknown. Just look at this thing though! This 1966 Barracuda Formula “S” edition is quite a deal at a price that is low on this rare investment car. This Barracuda has good looks and awesome power as well and is a really fun to drive! I drove this around town and on the freeway and it ran great, it drove it 70 MPH on the freeway and had plenty of pedal left. Check out the Era “Mag” wheels with steel belted radial tires boy do they look Great on this car! They really give it that nostalgia Muscle Car look. These vehicles have an appreciative group of owners, any of which would be pleased to own this one. The suspension seems to be in good working order as well as the electric system.

The BEAUTIFUL Bright Red exterior paint on this vehicle is New and in GREAT condition as you can see in the pictures above and below with only a few small imperfections. The owner took the data plate off for paint and lost it. This is a West Coast car all its life and built in the LA plant. The interior is very nice in the factory Black color scheme.

This vehicle is in good mechanical condition and it runs and drives very well. The vehicle is nice with respect to the overall cosmetic impression. I looked underneath and also included photos below.
