1969 Plymouth Barracuda Fastback Formula S 340
Hi everyone, now I really can say that I am back! Another Mopar Muscle car again. This time a 1969 Plymouth Barracuda Fastback with the 340 Formula S package. This creation has much more done to it than just the body and interior. The underside is fully detailed as well. Engine, transmission, drive shaft, rear end, full dual exhaust, gas tank, torsion bars, leaf springs, this car has it all and makes it one of my best creations.
About this creation
The A-body Barracuda, before they brought out the 1970 E-body, started it all. This was the real competitor of the Mustang and Camaro at the time, and this is the only 1969 Barracuda to be found on MOCpages right now, just crazy. The 1969 Barracuda Fastback (also available as a Notchback or Convertible) is my favorite car of all time, and I am proud to say that I own a real one myself.

This creation of the 1969 Barracuda Fastback features the Formula S package with the 340 Four Barrel V8 engine (383 optional) and 4-speed transmission behind it with console and bucket seats. The car is in the color B5 Blue Fire, and is also equipped with the white longitudinal stripe package. The wheels are body color with the dog dish hubcaps. Let's start with the pictures!


The Formula S package also comes with a blacked out grill, and rear trunk lid panel.








Love this rear view. The front and rear bumper are exactly the same on the real car. So on this one as well.





Let's have a closer look at the 340 Four Barrel V8 engine, rated at 275 hp at 5,000 RPM from the factory.


The Green cap battery, turquoise colored engine, and red air cleaner lid, really make the engine bay look like a candy store. A quick way to tell by Mopars if it is a Big Block or a Small Block, the Big Blocks have the distributor in the front, and the Small Blocks have the distributor in the back of the engine (Dark Tan piece). And so is this 340. Notice the torsion bars for suspension.


Doors opened, notice the vent windows; I really like them myself.


Let's have a look inside the car,


with the roof removed, for a better view... Now you can see the 4-speed shifter with console and bucket seats, the Rallye dash with the woodgrain panel, and the standard "leather like" steering wheel.





Trunk opened, want some more room in there? No problem!


A latching security panel, between the utility compartment and the trunk, can be lowered to join the two compartments into one big trunk area. The folding rear seat (Fastbacks only) extends the Fastback trunk and utility compartment. For the real car, long enough to haul water skis, a toboggan or to sleep two adults very comfortably.





Let's have a look at it again folded down with the trunk open,


with a better view at it...


Everything opened up,





Here you can see what's really going on in this car. 340 Four Barrel V8 engine, 4-speed transmission, drive shaft and rear end, leaf springs, torsion bars up front, and full dual exhaust.


A final view under the car with everything described in the picture above. The underside is all beautifully in body color. Notice the crossmember that holds the transmission in place. Notice the gas tank at the rear also.

Well, that's it, I hope you like it!

Update 22-01-2017: Okay, I've had too many comments about the roof being too flat; you were right. At first I thought it looked just fine, but by looking at it again and trying to really make some changes on it, I began to see that this could be done way better. So here it is, the updated version of the car with the new roof! It has a way better curve to it now unlike the one above. And the car looks way better now from the side also. So thanks for the comments!







Thanks for looking! Don't forget to rate and comment!

Quoting Nick Barrett Looks good, and surprisingly practical! Roof is a bit flat, but that just accentuates the fastbackness.
Thanks! I've tried to do something about the roof, and there is a way to make it less flat, but it won't look any better. Thanks for understanding, it accentuates the fastbackness. ;)

Wow, that's a very beautiful model! The roof is the very only point that I'd change a thing or two, but other than that, everything is pretty much spot on! The tail lights are a very nice element on the original and have been brilliantly transplanted into this replica. Well done and keep it up!

Quoting Sam the First It's easy to see you've spent a lot of time on this! Beautifully detailed. My only issue is the roof and C-pillar - I think old school hinges will have to be used as just having it straight doesn't look quite right which sadly takes away from the whole model. But the rest is beautifully constructed, so smooth! Even parts that aren't usually looked at look great. Awesome work.
Thank you! I knew that I was going to hear about the roof. I'll see what I can do about it maybe.

Quoting killswitch95 [SNRK] Wow... there's a muscle car that does not look good in fastback... Your model is 5/5, but that car's designers could have done better...
Really? Have you googled the car? The Fastback was the most popular and had more sales than the Notchback and Convertible combined. Even the Camaro copied the roof in 1970. It was a real trend at that time. But hey, everyone has their own taste. ;) But I'm glad you like my creation!
