1968 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S Matching numbers 383

Description

The Formula S connotation had been used to define the performance version of Plymouth’s A-body based as a Sport model—hence the real definition of that letter. The car offered here has benefitted from a rotisserie restoration and, moreover, it is also a big-block machine, featuring the matching-numbers 383/300 HP engine and TorqueFlite transmission. This option was big news following the 1967 redesign of the body that allowed the installation of the dimensionally larger B/RB engine series. This example reads Super Commando 383 on the air cleaner pie-pan and features a 4-barrel carburetor and factory exhaust manifolds. Built on October 2, 1967, in Hamtramck, Michigan, this car received the maximum cooling package, and the rest of the driveline includes an 8.75 Sure Grip rear axle with 3.23 gears. The Formula S Package and Rallye suspension meant power disc brakes, stronger leaf springs and torsion bars, Formula S medallions, and a deluxe light package with hood-mounted turn indicators. Inside the car are new bucket seats, upholstery, headliner, side panels and carpet. The round-faced dash layout features a 150 MPH speedometer, while this car came complete with console floor shifter, thumbwheel-style AM radio and rear-window defogger. The exterior is painted deep red with black rocker stripes and further features 383-S cast hood inserts, chrome exhaust extensions, a flip-top gas cap and Barracuda emblems. Today, the car still rides on original 14x5.5-inch body-color painted steel wheels with poverty-type small hubcaps and Firestone E70-14 redline tires. Accompanied by a Chrysler Registry report that denotes its unique equipment, the color combination, exquisite reconditioning and all-around aggressive stance, this Formula S was brewed up to hit the mark. For fans of not-often-seen Molars, this is a unique ’68 big-block A-body.
