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
