1969 Mod Top Barracuda Formula S on eBay

While certainly not in the best of shape, this Barracuda is one rare fish. Formula S production in 1969 consisted of 2034 fastbacks, 100 convertibles and 423 notchbacks. Of the notchbacks, 325 were 340’s and 98 383’s. Total Mod Tops for all Barracuda coupes in 1969 was reportedly 937. (Numbers courtesy of Mike Mueller’s The Complete Book of Classic Dodge and Plymouth Muscle). How many of those 325 small blocks were Mod Tops? Probably not a lot. We hope somebody brings this old girl back to life. Find it here on eBay.

The Other Auction – Gooding & Company

Lots of auctions are going on during auction week in Phoenix.  Barrett-Jackson and Russo and Steele are the biggest but Gooding is pretty big, too. They tend to have more high end and European cars but they had a couple of Mopars. Of course we had to check them out…

One Mopar was a 1970 Dodge Charger R/T.  Was not so impressed with this car as it was missing its fender tag and was a 440-4 car.  It is a 4-speed car though. Auction estimate was $80-100k!
