Legendary Performance

1968 Hemi History

1968 saw the birth of a Legend: the greatest factory drag cars ever produced, the Super Stock Hemi Dodge Dart and Plymouth Barracuda. Chrysler created these cars to compete with Ford's Cobra Jet Mustangs and Chevrolet's big block Camaros during the peak of the Big Three factory drag race programs. Chrysler produced about eighty Darts and seventy Barracudas, both cars came with a standard 383 cubic inch motor and were sent to Hurst Performance for conversion, which included a 426 Race Hemi engine with 12.5-1 compression, magnesium cross-ram intake manifold with two Holley four-barrel carburetors, a Hemi four-speed, narrowed Dana 60 with 4.88:1 gears, acid-dipped bumpers, lightened corning glass, fiberglass front fenders and hood, lightweight bucket seats, heater/radio delete, super stock rear springs, disc front brakes and rear drum set up, and most of all no warranty with the disclaimer "not intended for street use." The Hemi Darts and Barracudas decimated competition in the SS/A division pulling consistent 10.30 elapsed times at 135 mph, right off the trailer. Forty years later their factory performance still remains unmatched.

If you could go back to 1968, walk into a Dodge or Plymouth dealer and order a factory Super Stock car that would be very exciting. Obviously we can't, but through Ray Barton and George Bryce you can get even more excitement. Forget Yenko, Nickey, Super Cobra Jets, come play with the king, itís what all others aspire to be, the one and only 1968 Super Stock Hemi Dart or Barracuda. The phenomenal performance of these cars has been memoralized in history, but history is being recreated and improved upon with the introduction of the B2 Cars, simply INCREDIBLE!!

Close your eyes, listen to the thunder, feel the vibrations, sense the raw power of sitting behind the wheel of a Super Stock Hemi Dart or Barracuda. Get one while you can, only at B2 Cars.
