Yeah, Its Got a Hemi: 1973 Plymouth Barracuda Restomod – $55,000

Mar 2020 | Classifinds, Malaise Monday

Question:  When is a Hemi ‘Cuda not really a Hemi ‘Cuda?  Answer:  when its a 1973 Plymouth Barracuda restomod fitted with a 5.7 Liter Hemi donated from a 2012 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack car.  That’s exactly what the seller of this Lime Light Green over white vinyl interior currently offers here on Craigslist in Exton, Pennsylvania for the asking price of $55,000.  Checking the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool for a stock ’73 Barracuda confirms this private seller has his restomod priced $8,900 higher than the  the current #1 “Concours” estimate of $46,100. The restomod treatment tends to see the asking prices of quality builds command a premium over stock as the asking price is typically still lower than the actual try-and-replicate-it-for-this-asking-price.  If you are serious about buying this Barracuda, you can start the conversation by emailing the seller here and please don’t forget to mention you first saw his listing featured here on

The limited pictures and concise description have us believing this is a restomod that will not disappoint when seen in person.  Just remember to follow proper social distancing guidelines when you do. Good luck with the purchase!

Here’s the seller’s description:

“1973 Plymouth barracuda/Cuda Beautiful paint and interior. It has a 5.7 L hemi from a 2012 Plymouth challenger scat pack with an automatic trans with pistol grip shifter. The motor is set up with dual quads and a functional shaker hood. Brand new 17 inch wheels and tires. The paint is absolutely gorgeous and the car is super clean all over. Wilwood Power disc brakes and power steering. All electrical components work perfectly. This car runs great and is leak free. It’s a driver and very reliable. I may be willing to except a trade and cash for a late 40s or early 50s pick up truck. Not looking for a project!
