I just read through this entire thread, great job documenting a very rare piece that few people even know exist. Maybe we can get this into our reference section. :smile:

thanks.  Just trying to share the knowledge since there is no other information about these out there.

 Awesome read and very well discribed on the overall of these unique scoops and dare i say sought after optioned Barracudas for future collectors. I believe M46 Barracudas could become a desirable collector car for guys looking to have that unique car in their personal collections, such a rare opportunity to find what M46 Barracudas are left to be saved could not be more important than to start the hunt as Josh has already started the quest for the rest of us to follow.
I personally have one of these illusive M46 Barracuda of my very own and know how hard it is to even find information and references towards these cars and appreciate how much time and passion Josh has put in to this post. Thanks Josh for sharing.

Thanks Ken!  Glad to see ya made it in here long enough for a post!  Stick around!

Moparal's fc7 is the closest I've seen of a restoration. 
Dwight Righnt (correct my last name spelling if wrong) AKA M46Rrat  has a few original specimens I believe that are in truly great shape.  But I have yet to get a bunch of good pictures of any one of them. 

I'll attach the best pics i have of ole Al's.  Hope he's doing ok.

Al's car was a 42K original mile car.  318 originally.  locked in a garage since 1975.  I believe he purchased it in 2005 out of Arizona.  Very little to zero rust car.  He put the car back to as close to original with the exception of the drive train.  I do not have any info on the original drive train.  I do know that the fender tag has a 13 stamped into the top right side of it like an inspectors stamp.  The inspectors tag you can see on the right side of the tag has a stamp of AR but I do not have a picture of that.  The 13 and AR are raised stamps and not perforated stamps. 
I will contact Al and see if maybe, just maybe he has any pictures of the original car.  I doubt it but it's worth a try.  Al is a great guy and loves the mopar's.
Al's original 318 was not with the car when he purchased it.  He installed a date correct 440. 
These pictures were taken from a dealership that had the car for sale after Al sold it to someone else. 

Al was gracious enough to sell me a lone scoop that he had after the restoration, the worst scoop in the pics I shared, for 832.00.

I'd be happy with a set of nos ones!  Not the whole stash!   I'm fine with sharing. 

That would be awesome.  I"m always hoping for a set of NOS.
