1968 Plymouth Barracuda HEMI Under Glass

In this video I check out the world famous drag car…”HEMI Under Glass” the 1968 Plymouth Barracuda with a mid mounted supercharged 2nd gen 426 HEMI from the 2020 SEMA Show in Las Vegas NV.This 68 Barracuda at one time was the most viewed exhibition drag car.

Known for it’s 1/4 mile wheel stands it was something to see.Gold in color with various sponsor stickers the body is what you expect to see at the local drag strip…The interior is all race car.Nothing in there except what You need…In the front at least.Behind the seat is where that supercharged 426 HEMI sets.

Originally the thought process was this would improve traction.It worked.And if ET’s are what your chasing the design may have worked to well.

But if having people standing and screaming their heads off as you motor down the 1/4 mile on the rear wheels?…Then it works like a charm.There is even a cutout in the floor so that the driver can see where they are going while this thing is standing on it’s bumper.This is one cool part of drag racing history.
