1970 BAR­RACUDA CONVERTIBLE: 383 2-BBL, AU­TO­MATIC WITH C16 CONSOLE AND MAN­UAL CONVERTIBLE TOP, EF8 GREEN

Mopar Muscle - - Greetings From The Grave -

What can you say about this car and the cou­ple who owns it that hasn’t al­ready been raved about on our so­cial me­dia pages? Kim­berly and Tommy Cook’s was one of my fa­vorite re­veals of all time. Kim­berly and Tommy reached out to me about restor­ing their fam­ily heir­loom: a ’70 Bar­racuda convertible that Kim­berly’s fa­ther left to her. As a tribute to her fa­ther and know­ing how much he loved the car, she wanted to be sure the car was re­stored the way he would’ve wanted. Which is why she called on Grave­yard Carz. When the stakes are this high, I’m al­ways so proud to see our team meet and ex­ceed the bar. Painted in beau­ti­ful PPG basecoat/ clearcoat, the factory EF8 Ivy Green Me­tal­lic was stun­ning when fin­ished. We had the Cooks out for the un­veil­ing, as they hadn’t seen the car fin­ished yet. Watch­ing this build and re­veal will truly soften your heart. This aired as a spe­cial episode be­tween sea­sons four and five, but on Wikipedia it’s clas­si­fied as sea­son four episode 14, “How to Cook a Bar­racuda.” To this day, Kim­berly and Tommy take their cher­ished trea­sure to car shows and lo­cal crui­seins when­ever the weather per­mits. They’ve won mul­ti­ple tro­phies and hearts with this great car and their touch­ing fam­ily story.
