Car: Plymouth Barracuda Hardtop Coupe
What makes it special: Produced for model years 1967 to 1969, the second generation Plymouth Barracuda was still based on the Valiant model, but received a re-design separating it further from it. It was now available in a Fastback, Hardtop Coupe, and Convertible body style.
What made it famous: Now an A-Body, the second generation Barracuda was more stylish and had more sheet metal specifically for the Barracuda and not the Plymouth Valiant. For ’67, the 225 cu in “Slant-6” was still the base engine, but two and four-barrel versions of the 273 cu in V8 and a 280bhp, 383 cu in “B” Big-Block V8 was also available as an option with the “Formula S Package.”
Why I would want one: One of the best years for the early Barracudas. Love the style and all the body style choices available.
Fun fact: The front and rear bumpers on the 1967 Plymouth Barracuda were identical. They had the same license plate indent and mounting bracket.
