      66 barracuda..

      Bought my fathers 66 Barracuda, 273 commando, factory ac. pretty simple really, I want to put better brakes, better lights, bigger wheels, and black the whole car out.
      This is what I started with......


      This is where I want to go with it...


      And this is where I am at currently.....

      Nice rendering. Love the black out look. Flat blacked mine just so it didn't look like a stick poncho

      Absolutely do it! that rendering looks amazing. Possibly run HID headlight with a slight dark tint on them for effect. THE HID's should compensate for the light tinting. Try and fins some American Racing TQ Thrust II's in the REV series. They Make a 17 X 8" wheel with 4.75 BS that should fit under the rear without much issues. Also make a 17 X 7" for the front with 4.5 BS. Not sure on the small Mopar lug pattern though. early Mopar are 5 X 4.25" ??

      Early Mopars have the dreaded 5x4 small bolt pattern wheels. I went for the Ford 8.8 setup in mine to get limited slip, disc brakes and a 5x4.5 bolt pattern on the cheap. The new Wilwood kits are a great way to use your drum spindles but convert to 5x4.5 reasonably up front...

      If he has 9" drums I highly recommend newer disc spindles. Those older drum spindles are super "spindley" lol!

      looking great!!

      how dark of tint did you go with?

      and are you leaving it the 273 commando? are you parting with the original valve covers?

      and is that vinyl on the hood and sides, or plasti-dip, or paint, or...

      273 will stay in for this year, while i build the 340. hadnt given much thought to the valve covers. Yes, its vinyl on the hood and sides. trim is plasti-dip.
