Ithas been serially restored over the last 10 years to #1 condition,as described in the restoration article in the March, 2016 volume of Hemmings Muscle Machines.This car has been mechanically and cosmetically restored with the intent that it not only look like a new, stock Barracuda, but also remain reliably driveable, so a full mechanical restoration was performed including a professional rebuild of the 340and the A833 4-speed transmission to stock specs, and restoration of the suspension, wiring etc. Everything works as it should including all gagues, switches and components.</p><p>The original owner was an engineer and kept virtually every relevant document concerning the history of the car.
