1968 Plymouth Barracuda Factory B029 for Sale

In a recent post about a Sox and Martin Barracuda that was for sale, I noted that since they only produced about 50 and that “these cars do not become available very often”. OK, I was wrong. While it doesn’t have the provenance of the Sox and Martin car, this non-numbers matching, Ray Barton built Hemi Barracuda is still one to lust after. See the details at Hemmings. More pics after the jump!

Vintage Mopar NASCAR Photo of the Week: Buddy Baker’s Street Charger 500 and Race Car at the 1969 Bristol Race

This photo of the #3 Dodge Charger driven by Buddy Baker and built by Ray Fox was taken at the 1969 Bristol Race. It is interesting because it shows the stock version of the car alongside the race version. The white Charger 500 is still around today and was probably given to Baker by Chrysler.
