1967 Plymouth Barracuda
After initially being based on the Plymouth Valiant, in 1967 the Barracudas were heavily redesigned. Although some similarities to the Valiant are present the second gen cars took on a much more muscle car appearance and paved the way for the Barracuda to become one of the top tier muscle cars available. You don't see these cars very often and the look of this car is sure to have you questioning why. Coated in a nice white paint, the body is in good condition and features dual Black racing stripes which really add to that tough muscle car exterior. The front and rear bumpers are nicely chromed and the stainless trim around the windows and grill in good condition. The car also wears hood tie downs clips which are a nice aftermarket feature and along with the custom American Racing wheels add even more muscle.
Under the hood is the stock 273 V8 motor. It starts up nicely and runs smooth. It has been fitted with an Edelbrock air cleaner and finned valve covers but is mostly original. It is paired with an automatic transmission and the original rear end. The car has a nice rumble with dual exhaust which is routed out of the back and have added chrome tips.
The interior utilizes Black cloth upholstery on the seats with White on the door panels. Aftermarket high back bucket seats were added and fit the car well. All of the stock paneling, trim, controls, etc is nicely mounted in place. The original style faux wood trim covers the dash and outlines the original gauges. The original center console runs between the seats and can often be a very desirable component that is tough to track down for some of these 60's muscle cars. The console houses the automatic shifter as well as additional storage.
If you are in the market for a 60's muscle car but are tired of the same old Camaro or Mustang your search is over!
