You read the headline correctly: This is the four-door Barracuda that Plymouth didn’t build in 1970, except it actually did, sort of
Plymouth only built 107 of these Hemi ‘Cudas in 1971, and of those only 59 were equipped with 4-speed manual transmission.
The Pick of the Day is a restored and resto-modded 1967 Plymouth Barracuda coupe that looks like it was done right, with performance upgrades for power and drivability.
Offered at the 46th Scottsdale Barrett-Jackson auction, this funny car, recognized as “Snake II,” is the original car used in the popular “Snake vs. Mongoose” match
