72 Barracuda



Lots planned on Ashley's barracuda in the next few weeks. With help from Steve and Annette early summer we had the whole engine bay blasted, just to find rotted out hood support.

Now that we have the patches we're ready to cut out the old, weld in the new, and get this thing back on the road.

Hope to keep you posted here and updated with photos; been a long time coming with the new baby in house :smug:

:work:

Engine has been out since last year, but we finally tore in to it today with help from Kim. All the internals were like new, and its evident very few miles are on this engine since Ashley's dad did the rebuild years ago before parking the car. We did however find a lot of slack in the timing chain, so we will be replacing that and likely a new cam. With that though, we'll button her up with some fresh paint and be ready to re-install.

BIG thanks to DAN for his master welding skills getting us here, and everyone else who came by the workshop last weekend.

Goal is to have this at the Halloween party :smug:
