Hello everyone,
Im Mohamed from UAE, currently restoring a 1970 Barracuda gran coupe 318 car, but since it was a 318 , no AC, no Power steering, no power brakes plus the frame of the car was bad, I decided to do something different. Started to think like most of the people to put a 6.1 hemi 6 speed, but that what most of the people do, I thought why not to do a 4WD barracuda, after searching I found out that the 2006-2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 almost have the same wheel base of the Barracuda, the jeep wheelbase is 1.5 inches longer, i have already swapped the Barracuda Body on to The jeep Chassis, sets perfect. Facing few issues, but nothing can’t be solved. Im sorry I haven’t taken lots of pictures but took videos of the current build. Not on youtube, it is in instagram, hope you guy not hate me to rune the Barracuda, hopefully will come with a better Barracuda than before. Here are the link for the videos (sorry that all the talking is in Arabic ‍♂)

Welcome to the site. That’s quite the conversion to take on along with a restoration. Good luck with it. I’m sure it will turn some heads.

Wow, that is going to be a beast. I can't imagine how hard that thing is going to hook up off the line.
