Do abandoned projects make the best projects? While certainly a diamond in the rough, at least much of the teardown seems to be completed in this 1970 Barracuda. The block is a 318 and used to be topped with a 2 bbl. Per the seller, “the hood, roof, and doors appear to be in very good condition. The floor pans are very nice, and frame rails are solid.” The rest of the car will need some work. With no reserve, it could go for a decent price. Follow the eBay bidding here.

Going to the Mecum auction in Dallas later this month is this Lemon Twist Cuda. No 3rd gen Hemi for this restomod though. It’s powered by a 650 hp 528 Hemi sucking the air/fuel mixture through dual 4-barrels and sending power to a Dana 60. The suspension is upgraded to an Alterkation front end combined with an air suspension system. Now, about that stance. Find more info at Mecum Auctions. More pics after the jump!
A victim of rising insurance rates and a looming oil crisis, the 72-74 E bodies were admittedly a step back from the 70-71 model years in terms of outright performance but they don’t deserve the almost Rodney Dangerfield-ish lack of respect that some burden them with. Find a recap of the “big block-less” Challengers at Curbside Classic.
