Lot #1306.2 - After building the Max HEMI and selling it for charity at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2006, Boyd and his crew including Duane Mayer dreamed of making a faster and cooler car to make a difference in the lives of others. Out of that dream, the idea for the Coddington HEMI Barracuda was born. Boyd wanted it to be fast, modern and powerful. Boyd really wanted to "one-up" himself. Tragically, Boyd never saw his dream come to fruition as he passed before the project was off the drawing boards. Armed with a new reason to create this car, Duane contacted the crew at West Coast Customs to finally make the dream a reality as homage to Boyd Coddington and his legacy. WCC embraced the project and along with Mark Holmes of Custom Rod Gauges, started the build of this one-of-a-kind masterpiece. They started with a 1967 Barracuda sport hardtop and replaced the engine with a modern monster, the 6.1 SRT8 HEMI engine. To maximize the nearly 500hp, they mated it to a 727 TorqueFlight transmission along with dual custom exhaust, a Griffith radiator, and a Magnum Force Mustang II front sub-frame and suspension. It stops smoothly through Wilwood disc brakes with stainless brake/fuel lines and aircraft-grade fuel/brake fittings. The eye appeal of this car is only something that the Coddington Team and the WCC crew could create. The exterior is done in two tone black paint with custom WCC grilles and moldings. It sits on Asanti wheels, 19" in front and 20" in the rear, to give it the right stance. The interior is decked out with a custom dash and instrumentation from Custom Rod Gauges that complement the custom, all black leather interior. Of course, it features a custom WCC stereo with 6.5 WCC Orion component speakers front and rear, 1600 watt WCC Orion mono block amp for the subs, 800 watt PPI 4 channel amp for the highs, two 10" 1600 watt WCC Orion sub-woofers, a Visualogic V-mod computer system, Kinetic 1400 battery, Sony 6.5 monitor, and custom fiberglass kick panels and rear sub box. Other modern conveniences like high volume air conditioning and heat make this a very comfortable car. In true Coddington and WCC style, the entire build was filmed and documented on Discovery Channel's "Street Customs" TV show. Boyd's sons and his first wife were on hand and when they saw the car, they said "it was like he has been here building the car all along." Now all that is left to do is fulfill the ultimate goal of this build -- sell it to enhance the lives of children across the country. The WCC Coddington HEMI Barracuda is being sold to benefit the EAA's Young Eagles Program. Chaired by Harrison Ford, the EAA Young Eagles program was launched to give young people the rare opportunity to experience flying in a general aviation airplane. All involved in this project are honored to offer this one-of-kind custom to benefit a worthy cause and help enrich the lives of children.
