"You may have noticed, this car is a Formula S Mod Top car. [Editorial note: well...actually...to be a Formula S, it must have the A53 code on the fender tag. It is definitely a "340-S", which means it has the same stuff as a Formula S (340 engine, dual exhaust with chrome tips, and heavy duty suspension) but it doesn't have the badging (Formula S medallion on the sides of the car, Black rear deck applique instead of silver (this is the metal panel on the trunk lid), black front grilles instead of silver on the regular 340-S). My ModCuda is the same way, a 340-S, but not a Formula S.] A friend of mine is a car scavenger... he drives around looking for muscle cars. This one was sitting on someones side yard. An old lady owned it. She ran it out of oil and water. It ran on about 5 cylinders. She drove it this way. My buddy gets it for $700.00, drives it home and shows it to me. I had to have it! I also had to give him an extra grand. Some friend. I still feel like I stole it. A '69 Barracuda Formula-S Mod Top car with a blown-up 340 and a demolished interior. The challenge began. Making the car mechanically correct was no problem for me. It runs great, I drive it every day. The seats are abused and the roof has been replaced. I cannot find the stuff. Can you help me? I would like N.O.S. or even good used. I love this car. "
