As I’ve said before, these short films are extra-special for those of us at Petrolicious because we have the memories of making them. Spending days with owners like Bob and cars like his ‘Cuda are one of the perks of working for this outfit!
And here, by the way, is an advert that Plymouth ran featuring Scott Harvey, his family, and his 1966 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S T/A. More pics of Harvey’s rally Barracuda can be found here: http://goo.gl/RA8QEs
Really cool video
Amazing video as always, it’d be great if you guys could make some desktop wallpapers of this beautiful car
Got on to the petrolicious homepage and seeing the side shot of this car at the top of the page had a massive impact to say the least… My dad has a 1968 barracuda 340 formula S, was same colour as the one pictured here, also a fast back. The car was his first car and I grew up with very fond memories of riding around in the passengers seat in the summers. Sadly it has not been on the road for 5 years due to it being restored, I miss it. Thank you very much for this video.
I can only imagine the impact…At least, if it’s being restored, you’ll soon be able to enjoy it again. Good luck!
Always thought this generation of the Barracuda was one of the best looking of the muscle/ pony cars. Love the sensitive mods and the V8 rumble. Cool car and top owner.
As it happens, it was Chrysler engineer Scott Harvey – for whom Bob Gough navigated several La Carrera Panamericana races – who won that Shell 4000. Rumor has it that the ‘S’ in “Formula S” stood for Scott, who had suggested and designed many of the modifications that improved this car’s handling.
Petrolicious does American iron right. Yes, I like my imports more, but I ways come away nodding to the American vintage after each one of these videos.
Very cool and beautiful car. I did not know about the handling capability. Bob has done a beautiful job on this car in so many ways.
