Sweet Fishcar: 1965 Plymouth Barracuda

The Plymouth Barracuda introduced the world to fastback shaped pony cars a full two weeks before Ford’s Mustang was released in April 1964, but even hardcore Mopar enthusiasts will agree that it is a good thing that the Mustang outsold the Barracuda by a landslide because otherwise we’d be left the strange term fishcar for sporty compact 2+2 fastback/coupes with long hood styling and rear-wheel-drive. Anyway, this pony car looks respectable for the price but it depends on the quality of that paint…if it is a cheap respray — pass; but if the paint is original or a quality job, this is a winner.
