This probably was once a pretty nice ’70 Barracuda. Unfortunately it’s been scavenged for parts and left out to collect snow for years, so there’s not much left to work with. It’s missing the doors, all glass, interior, front clip, hood, trunk lid and rear axle.

It does still have it’s original 318 cid engine and Torque Flight automatic transmission, but it’s not exactly a HEMI or 440 six pack car. Those cars would be worth restoring, even in this condition. But the 318 with auto was the most common combination there was in 1970 with over 19,000 produced.
