Today we are going to take a closer look at one stout 1969 Plymouth Barracuda that goes by the name “Vitamin C”. The A-body Mopar competes in NHRA’s Stock Eliminator class, which many call the heart of drag racing. That is where it all started, and with most tracks switching to the 1/8 mile, I am glad we still have such events.
The “Vitamin C” Plymouth Barracuda has been living 1/4 mile at a time since the 70’s. The man who had it back then ran a business in Orange County, CA called Orange Auto Sales. That is where the name came from. The race car went back east in the 80’s, and now has returned to the west coast.
Under the hood is a high compression 340 small block Mopar. The engine is connected to 904 Torqueflite automatic trans with 8-inch ATI converter and 4.75 geared 8¾ rear end. CalTrac traction bars from Calvert Racing are helping the NHRA Stocker 1969 Plymouth Barracuda hook.
I love Bobby Fazio’s video interviews with racers at the Pomona Drag Strip. This time he’s got Chad Loge under the spotlight. A humble guy who shares everything about the “Vitamin C” 1969 Barracuda set up. Enjoy!
