Arrivé cet été parmi un grand nombre de réceptions (que je ne vous ai toujours pas présenté <_<), ce fut réellement le premier modèle que je me suis empressé de déballer (oui, avant même les Lambo Countach et Jota... shame on me!! :blush:) car il s'agit pour moi d'un Saint Graal, un des Muscle-Cars les plus importants à mes yeux, et surtout un de mes préférés : 

1968 Plymouth Barracuda Hemi Super Street - Highway 61 pour Supercar Collectibles - Edition limitée 1/1200

Un modèle magnifique plein de détails comme Highway 61 nous avait habitué et aussi très rare aujourd'hui malgré son millier d'exemplaires.

 

J'ai presque hésité à le mettre dans la section Compétition, car le véritable nom de ce Muscle-Car est en fait :

1968 Plymouth Barracuda B029 Hurst Hemi Super Stock ! 

Explications :

En 1968, Chrysler voulait un monstre absolu pour dominer le milieu du Super Stock. Plymouth produit alors entre 50 et 70 (les historiens débattent toujours du nombre exact) Barracuda spéciales sous la dénomination B029 qui fut un Drag Pack complet haute performance. Il s'agissait là de bien plus qu'une motorisation 426 HEMI (qui d'ailleurs n'était pas en option sur les Barracuda de base) mais de toute une série de modifications compet' avec l'aide de Hurst Performance et destinée à satisfaire les teams Super Stock comme Sox & Martin.

Toutes ces Barracuda option B029 commençaient leur vie peinte juste en primer gris et avec les panneaux avants en fibre de verre peints en noir. Les jantes tôles étaient aussi peintes en noir. Highway 61 a également sorti ce modèle ainsi... mais il est encore plus rare et cher ! ;)

 

Pour ceux que ça intéresse, je vous donne ci-dessous le contenu de la lettre officielle de Chrysler aux concessionnaires Plymouth.

Malgré mon bilinguisme, je n'ai pas la patience de vous traduire tout ça.  :P  Mais je suis certain que les Muscle Boyz n'auront aucun mal à comprendre ce qui est écrit plus bas.

Et pour ceux qui n'auraient pas du tout la patience de lire en détail : Clairement, cette voiture n'était pas destinée à un usage routier !

 

Mais pour en revenir à ce que je disais concernant la rubrique Compétition - ou pas : Si ce modèle est présenté ici, c'est qu'il est en mode "Super Street" et donc voué à une utilisation - évidemment - illégale. Quitte à faire des courses de rues illégales, autant le faire avec une voiture totalement illégale !!  B)  :spy: Logique, non ?

Le monstre est ici peint en noir gloss, gardant son capot noir matte en fibre de verre à la prise d'air énorme qui laisse entrevoir les deux carbu' quatre-corps de l'éléphantesque 426 HEMI Crossram de 650 chevaux, le tout roulant en gros slicks arrières montés sur de belles jantes Centerline ! Un look ravageur pour des performances ahurissantes, assurément.

NO OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT OF ANY KIND CAN BE ORDERED​

 

 

The policy of Chrysler Corporation is one of continual improvement in design and manufacture, wherever possible, to insure a still finer car. Hence, specifications, equipment and prices are subject to change without notice.

These vehicles are intended to use in supervised acceleration trials and other competitive events, therefore, they will be sold without warrant. Special stickers will be provided for plant installation (attached to left "A" post) which will read as follows: "This vehicle was not manufactured for use on public streets, roads or highways and does not conform to Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

All customer orders must be accompanied by a signed disclaimer (sample attached) indicating that the purchaser understands that this vehicle is sold without warranty and does not conform to Federal Vehicle Safety Standards. ​

 

Any prospective customer who desires to purchase one of these maximum performance vehicles should be made aware of the following characteristics which make them unsuitable for general use.

A high idle speed is required to insure adequate lubrication, minimize roughness, and to keep the engine from stalling.

The modified intake manifold causes a rich surging condition, misfiring and unstable engine operation in cold weather, which makes ordinary street driving extremely difficult and it is not recommended for this use.​

 

Higher than normal oil consumption will be encountered because of increased lubrication to the valve train and cylinder walls.

The carburetors are calibrated for maximum power and a high numerical axle ration is used for acceleration. As a result, the gas mileage is considerably less than for a conventional car.

Engine noise would be objectionable due to increased piston clearance and mechanical valve tappet clearance.

The ignition system is designed for optimum engine output and must be kept in top condition. This makes it necessary to inspect, adjust and replace the spark plugs and ignition points more frequently than would be necessary on a standard engine.

On car equipped with automatic transmission, band adjustment must be made frequently.

Due to performance characteristics, maintenance and operating expense will be high since premium fuel is required and frequent oil changes are a MUST.

Does not conform to Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

 

Warranty and Policy Coverage

 

Any customer purchasing this model vehicle should be advised that due to the expected use, the vehicle is sold "as is" and the 24 month or 24,000 mile vehicle warranty coverage, the 5 year or 50,000 mile Power Train Warranty coverage, or any other warranty coverage (including, but not limited to the implied warranties of fitness for purpose intended or merchantability) will not apply to the vehicle. The manufacturer assumes no responsibility for the manner in which such vehicles operate.

Any repairs or adjustments which you believe warranty factory participation should be brought to the attention of your Regional Service Office where such requests will be handled on individual merits.

Attached is a form letter (to be prepared on your letterhead) which should be thoroughly understood and signed by each prospective purchaser and attached to your order for each Hemi Barracuda Super Stock. The purpose of the letter is to explain the normal operation characteristics of these vehicles and clarify that the warranty coverage’s do not apply. Be sure a letter in this form, signed by your customer, is included with your order so there will be no delay.

 

 

1968 Hemi Barracuda

 

It was inevitable that Chrysler would build the Hemi Barracuda. For the past four years, drag racers had been gutting Barracudas and dropping in 392 and 426 Elephant Engines. Since Chrysler had enjoyed tremendous success on the dragstrips in Super Stock and Unlimited Fuel since 1963, the decision to continue that domination by building a factory super stocker (with some assistance from Hurst) was a natural.

The S/S Hemi Barracuda was assembled by Chrysler as a package and then shipped to Hurst. Although the number varies from source to source, at least fifty and possibly as many as seventy-five Barracudas were shipped to Hurst’s facility in Detroit. The conversions were coordinated by Dick Maxwell at Chrysler and Richard Chrysler at Hurst. As delivered to the dealers, the cars had fiberglass hoods and fenders, while the front bumper and doors were light-gauge steel. The interiors were gutted and Bostrom driver seats installed.

To squeeze the mighty Elephant into the Barracuda’s tight engine bay, some modifications had to be made under the hood. The battery was moved to the trunk, and the right shock tower was moved, as was the master cylinder. Hurst also installed custom headers, shift linkages for four-speed cars and special rear-axle assemblies. Off the transport trailer the cars were delivered on street tires. All that was needed to make the car competitive was slicks, a deeper oil pan (a small pan was installed for shipping), camshaft and valvetrain.

The S/S Hemi Barracudas were delivered to racers in early May, in time to qualify for the NHRA Spring Nationals. Ronnie Sox was one of the first to get a Hemi Barracuda on the strip and turned mid 10s right out of the box.
