The Gavril Barstow is a Rear-wheel drive muscle car that was produced by Gavril from 1969 to 1971. It's in a similar class to the 1960's Ford Mustang along with design aspects of various GM and Dodge models. It has straight six and various V8 engine options, including a roadsport package and various special editions. This vehicle is included in BeamNG versions 0.4.3 (Oct. 31, 2015) and up.


Development

It’s about the same size as a ’71-’73 Mustang (maybe a hair bigger).

—gabester, BeamNG Dev Blog, 21 November 2012

The Barstow was first shown as a primitive model in late 2012. In a poll titled "Which vehicle would you like to see in-game first?", it came in third place, with fourty-five votes.[1] It wasn't nearly as popular in a later poll, receiving only nine votes, possibly due to its similarity with the Bruckell Moonhawk.[2]

Despite the disappointing results of the second poll, screenshots were posted by Nadeox1 in late September 2015[3], with the Barstow in a seemingly complete state. It was released with the 0.4.3 update on October 30, 2015.[4]

During its development, it was often compared to the similarly-designed Gavril Bandit, a vehicle from Rigs of Rods which gabester also created.

Overview of Models

232

The 232 is the base production model, fitted with a 232 cubic inch inline-6 engine. It is only available with a manual transmission.

The Awful

The Awful variant of the 232 replaces the single standard exhaust system with six straight pipes extending through a hole in the hood, and completely removes the bumpers, lights, and door panels. This makes it a great choice for a dirt race or demolition derby.

V8 Models

The 291, 353, and 423 are all the same models visually, one step up from the 232, but each model contains a different sized engine (291 in3, 353 in3, and 423 in3, respectively). They all have V8 badging and ridged hubcaps, and are available with a manual or automatic transmission.

RoadSport Variants

The RoadSport Package replaces the static headlights, two-barrel carburetor, and standard suspension of an original 291, 353, or 423 with hidden rotating lights, four-barrel carburetors, and heavy-duty springs and shocks. It also includes chrome wheels, a limited-slip diff, and RoadSport badging.

Special Models

TrackSport

The TrackSport is a 291 made with an added edge on performance. It sports racing wheels, four-barrel carburetors, and sport suspension parts as functional changes, though there are more cosmetic alterations as well, such as body colored bumpers, black stripe decals, rear louvers, scooped hood, sport steering wheel, and TrackSport badging.

Lancehead

The Lancehead is like the TrackSport, built for performance, although there are a few differences. This model, based on the 423, utilizes the heavy-duty suspension and concealed headlights of the RoadSport Package, as well as the sport wheels, body-colored bumpers, scooped hood, sport steering wheel, and stripe decals (white this time) used on the TrackSport.

Kingsnake

The Kingsnake is another performance-derived 423. Instead of carburetors, a Stage 1 supercharger adds a significant amount of power, making it one of the quickest configurations of the Barstow available. It also has slotted magnum wheels, rear louvers, body colored bumpers, a cowled hood, and black stripe decals. The cowled hood has a single, wider variation of the stripe decal and extra Barstow badging.

Nightsnake

The Nightsnake is similar to the Kingsnake, although this model has a more powerful Stage 2 supercharger, Civetta wheels, and racing slicks. It also has a Legno Classico steering wheel. It does not have stripe decals like the other performance models or the Kingsnake hood badging.

Drag

The Drag is also like the Kingsnake, though this model has a full set of Drag wheels, a massively powerful Stage 4 supercharger, a rollcage, and a unique Drag automatic transmission. Cosmetic changes include white stripe decals, body colored bumpers, a cut hood, and a Nomi steering wheel.

It is one of the quickest vehicle configurations in the game, taking a mere two seconds to reach 60 MPH from a standstill, but it will also tip over or catch fire if the driver cannot properly handle it.
