few questions please ,
just bought a 1967 cuda convertible, has 340-s on the hood , and a round S on the back left rear,
it also has white seats with black suede seats not sure if factory
ok so doing a vin search its not showing a 340? say its a 273
I am not sure if car is really a S and does it have a 340? did some one put the 340
s on hood , car has 3 speed auto , no tack ?
Without being able to see the car for myself; There are a few things that stick out so far with what you’ve told me.
For the model year 1967 the 273 engine option was the most produced throughout all models. While that means your car most likely came with a 273; we can still check the VIN. If the 5th Digit in the VIN is a ‘D’ or ‘E’ , the car came from factory with a 273 (“D” is a 2-BBL, and “E” is 4-BBL).
However, the part you might not want to here is that for 1967 the Barracuda did not come with the option for a 340. The Formula S packages came with a 383, either a 2 or 4 BBL.
Now here’s where things get tricky. If the 5th digit of the VIN is a “M” it means you have a special order 8-cylinder engine. That’s important because the 340 Small Block technically did come out in 1967, just very late in year. AND there are rumors of a few cars being ordered by Plymouth Insiders outfitted with the 340, but I do not think any of those cars were convertibles.
If you already ran a VIN check stick with what information that gave you.
