For Sale: 1966 Plymouth Barracuda in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

The 1966 Plymouth Barracuda was one of the coolest pony cars around. It gave you distinctive styling and even offered proper V8 power. And this example amplifies the best pieces while also delivering the kind of value price that leaves room in your budget for even more personalization.

Plymouth was responsible for one of the most exciting cars on the road for the mid-60s. It combined an excellent hardtop profile, fastback style, and imposingly square bumpers. The result was a car that was both stylish and a touch aggressive. And details like the dual exhaust tips and Cragar SS wheels add to this sporty feeling. The overall idea on this one is to deliver quite a complete classic on day one. You may decide to update the finish, polish the bumpers, or add details, but the full appeal here is a great base and a value price. Even the hallmark wraparound rear glass looks quite clean and complete.

The black bucket seat interior makes for a nice pony car setup. And the folding rear bench lets you take full advantage of the interior space. Like the exterior, those looking for perfection are more lily to reinvest in this coupe. But we bet you're looking at this because you want a classic you can enjoy without getting nervous about dirt on shoes or pebbles on the road. And there's a proper driver's feeling with the classic steering wheel, well-laid-out gauges, and an upgraded auxiliary gauge trio.

Under the hood is Mopar's 340 cubic-inch V8. This is much larger than what the factory offered these first-gen Barracudas. It has been upgraded further with a four-barrel carburetor and a Weiand intake. Right now, this is more set up for someone who would like to do some weekend tuning to unlock the ideal balance of power and consistency. When you dial it in correctly, there are suitable supporting components, like an aluminum radiator, electric fans, finned Mopar valve covers, and a newer dual exhaust for an excellent all-around motoring package. And while this Barracuda likes you to feel the road in a true vintage way, features like the three-speed automatic transmission and wide Cooper Cobra tires make for a good cruising feeling.

This is a desirable classic Mopar with the kind of price that lets you give it your personal touch. So if you love distinction today and a lot of potential for tomorrow, this is a great coupe. Call now!
