Rather than take on a pure restoration project, John chose to make the car exactly what he wanted. That's where natural selection must begin. You aren't building something to impress the judges as much as you are building it exactly the way you want it. In the case of the Barracuda, making it exactly what John wanted would necessitate an interior and exterior color change. Forget what your friends have said about reproduction parts for A-Bodies. John discovered after a look through the A- and C-Body Year One catalog that there were only a few small parts that would require serious salvage effort.
