Now the 2019 race season is over we’re spending a bit of time on the bodyshell race preparation of our Plymouth Barracuda. In recent weeks we’ve continued to seam weld the body. Additionally we’ve reinforced some high stress areas around the suspension pickup points.
We’ve removed all unnecessary tabs and brackets to help save a little weight. Furthermore, we’ve filled all unnecessary holes in the bulkhead. Because a sealed bulkhead is a requirement under the FIA and Motorsport UK regulations.
The other major modification is the 4-speed conversion. This Plymouth Barracuda was originally an automatic. We sourced a gearbox in the UK and a pedal box on eBay in the states. The rest of the parts came from Brewers Performance in Ohio.
Once we complete the bodyshell race preparation this Plymouth Barracuda historic race car it will be prepped for paint. We’re think red.
