Weaver Customs in Salt Lake City, Utah unveiled a really unique 1970 Plymouth Barracuda called “Torc” for owner Len Elfervig at Detroit Autorama 2016. The project started with a Barracuda body that was channeled and the roof was chopped in the rear. Other modifications included leaning the windshield back and flush mounting all the glass. All this was dropped onto a Roadster Shop chassis. Under the custom hood sits a compound turbocharged 6.7 L Cummins diesel inline-six. The engine features forged internals, ported and polished head, duel fuelers, 5×18 injectors, S366 and S460 turbochargers, and nitrous. This combo is good for 1,500 horsepower and 3,000 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels. Backing up that power is a Chrysler 48RE full manual automatic transmission.
