1968 Plymouth Barracuda B029 Super Stock: 1969 NHRA Winternationals SS/BA Class Winner


ESTIMATE: $450,000 - $550,000 

They referred to them as ‘A-bombs,’ and with good reason. The 1968 Hurst-built Hemi Barracudas and Darts took the drag world by storm, winning consistently from their debut. However, of the 70 Plymouth models created, major event wins were the forte of only the best drivers. This is a truly exceptional chance to own the actual 1968 Hurst Hemi that won the 1969 NHRA Winternationals, the factory-associated Super Stock Barracuda campaigned by Don Grotheer during the final two major seasons before Pro Stock was introduced. Based in Oklahoma, Grotheer was among a handful of racers actually supported by Plymouth with both parts and financial assistance, and he did dealer-based performance clinics much like Sox & Martin did nationally.

  1. I was at the '69 Winternationals and watched this baby run, extremely impressive and I have never heard a better, sweeter, idle and lope to this day. Actually had pit passes. An extremely fin day that was. Back when there was REAL racing and I cut my teeth on the street, only lost twice to hemi's.

  2. One half a million dollars - unbelievable. If I knew then
