Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Do you approve of a Slant Six, dual-carbed, 4-speed-equipped '66 Barracuda?
You'd better approve! V8-powered Chrysler A bodies are fine, but a hot-rodded Slant Six car just seems cooler. I spotted this car in my neighborhood, just across the street from the '66 Ford Ranchero and down the block from the '83 Sentra wagon.
The owner happened to be with the car, so I was able to get its story. This thing is pretty much original, except for the upgrade from 3-on-the-tree to 4-on-the floor and the Offenhauser dual-carb setup. And it's for sale! If you want to work out a deal with the owner (I have no idea how much he wants for it), email him and start makin' some deals!
