Default Re: Original Hemi Cuda Info.......

April 1968 (Cecil County Drag-O-Way)

One the earliest tests with the 68' Hemi Barracuda.

At the time, the 68' Hemi Barracuda was 'not yet' legal for NHRA SS/B or SS/BA.

Hope we can hear from some past and current BO29 owners/crews.
Nothing says it better than "first hand" knowledge

This is the car Sam Pannuty purchased from S&M in 69.
I have a shot of the Cuda, after the sale and repaint, and it still has the #784 on the rear quarter windows.
We ran it in the NASCAR ULTRA STOCK circuit that year.
