The Pick of the Day is a first-year example of the Mopar pony car
This is the eighth vehicle in the 30-day Countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s 47th annual Scottsdale auction.
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
Plymouth Barracudas have the distinction of being produced for exactly one decade to the day with the third and last generation of ‘Cudas becoming best-known among muscle car collectors.
I got a text message from a buddy of mine in Bowman, North Dakota, and he asked me if I knew anybody that would be interested in a 1964 Plymouth Barracuda.
Mopar fanatics will have much to cheer about as 30 vintage Hemis and at least 10 Dodge Vipers cross the block during Mecum’s Original Spring Classic auction held May 17-21.
