Aqua OVER CHROME Custom Barracuda
Description: The holy grails, the Crown Jewels of the hobby, the infamous Original ‘68 OVER CHROMEs! These hardly ever get listed for sale publicly and are by far the most sought after redlines of all time. There are less of these known than rear loader beach bombs. Any one of these Over Chrome’s are more rare than blue deora’s, purple 442’s and hot pink bandits. Here is, what might prove to be, your once in a lifetime opportunity to add one of these incredible gems to your collection!
There are 31 known Over Chrome Original ‘68 cars. Spanning 8 castings in different colours. These painted over chrome’s shine incredibly in hand and are a truly remarkable center piece to any collection. “ These cars are beleived to have been used primarily for Commercials. A large group of them came from a Mattel
Photographer who primarly shot TV Commercials.”
This Custom Barracuda in aqua Over Chrome with a purple interior is not only 1 of 2 known but it also has deep hood scoops! As well as the specially created wheels, unique to the Over Chrome commercial cars. This Cuda is played with and shows edge wear. It also has an over spun front post and is separated from the base. Which happened to at least one of the other early barracuda catalog cars. The drivers side rear spring tab is also missing from prior to assembly. So the rear axel floats. There was a piece of masking tape from Mattel stating “Bar Rear Spring” when I received this car. Aqua looks amazing on these OC cars and this cuda pops with the purple interior.
Shipping is free in Canada and the USA.
Pricing is difficult as they do not come up for sale publicly and I am open to offers. I can send more pictures upon request. I back my cars 100% and have made a good name for myself in the hobby over the last 21 years. Buy with confidence|
