For Sale: 1966 Plymouth Barracuda in O'Fallon, Illinois


Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is excited to offer this head-turning 1966 Plymouth Barracuda for sale on consignment at our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. The Barracuda was an unfortunate victim of the popularity that Ford's Mustang enjoyed- it was released 16 days earlier than the Pony Car but ended up being overlooked as a viable alternative. Today, both cars remain popular classics for different reasons; the Mustang enjoys a broad appeal while classic Barracudas are coveted due to their rarity. The large, sloping rear window that dominates the rear end of this Plymouth was the largest piece of glass produced in the automotive industry at the time of release. The Barracuda, based on Chrysler's A-Body platform, offers a nice package as a fastback with 7 feet of cargo space and room for seating 5. This example has extra curb appeal thanks to an expensive Porsche "Guards Red" paint color that is vibrant and hard to take your eyes off- this car was painted in Bright Red from the factory. The original 273 CID 2bbl V8 has been upgraded in this restored car to a 318 CID V8 that was first offered for 1967 models. Heavy duty rear shocks and leaf springs as well as Wilwood disc brakes provide sporty handling and sharp stopping while the three-speed TorqueFlight automatic transmission linked to a rear end geared 3.25 gives smooth, reliable shifting. The 9" Ford housing for the differential is also an upgrade on this vehicle. Check out the stunning factory style Black vinyl interior on this Barracuda that oozes 60's nostalgia. The stock dash is there with an added tachometer and engine monitoring gauges for driver information. There's an aftermarket stereo installed inside the glovebox as well to preserve the mostly original look. Front bucket seats were standard equipment on the Barracuda. This is a comfortable, fun car to drive and it would be a great way to get into the classic car world for someone looking to stand out in the crowd of Mustangs and Camaros.
