'68 383/2bbl/4spd 1 of 74


« on: June 27, 2007, 08:55:10 PM »

I've really grown to love the '67-'69 Barracuda notchbacks and I recently spotted a '67 that I might try to buy but here lately the fastback look is really starting to grow on me. Which do you like best? Do you think one is more valuable/desirable to the general public than the other?

I swiped a couple pics off Ebay to help you choose. 2thumbs

fastbacks... don't like that looooong trunk lid view... almost looks like a hood. In fact that is what makes different the Charger from the rest... Longer sail/C pillar, roof line or what ever you calls, almost a fastback look

Fastback only. I had a '67 notchback and it was hideous. It looked like a half-hearted attempt at pinching a turd.  Cheesy

I think the fastback is nicer, I don't like the roof line on the notchback. I did have a ragtop though, the way it looks with the top down is cool.  cheers

   great pics thanks!!!
i like the way the trunk line comes up to the rear window on the Fastback, they are pretty simple and the fastback roof looks right, spices it up and helps the proportions,.. very graceful, the grill reminds me alot of the Pontiac GTOs of the same year '67,.. the notchroof looks goofy to my eye...  scope
  a few yrs back a coworker had an extreamly cherry and bone stock original notchback white/black 318 console car he sold for $3,200,.. I just wasn't into it enuff to take it on... if it was a fastback i would have probably bought it myself...

 i'd like more pics please...  drool5
 
 so Bull, what are your plans/ideas?.. perhaps a photoshop rendering?.. eh?.  shruggy
