Won’t Last: 1966 Plymouth Barracuda

The (Plymouth) Barracuda pre-dated the release of Ford’s Mustang, but
they don’t call the sporty 2+2 genre the ‘Flesh-eating-fish-car’…it’s
the Pony-car, probably because the Barracuda was not nearly as
successful from a sales perspective.  However, driving a classic Barracuda todays says you’ve got taste and didn’t just hit the “easy” button when selecting your ride.  Find this 1966 Plymouth Barracuda offered for $8,000 in Western MA via craigslist. Tip from Jim H.

This Barracuda has been modified to be all business — to the tune of $20k invested according to the seller.  Oooooo–EEEEEEEEEEEE!  There ain’t no money better spent on your classic ride than that from the previous owner.

Under the hood is what appears to be a variant of Chrysler’s LA-V8, a 273 cubic inch overhead-valve thing that pushes something in the range of 180 horsepower when stock/original….more money thrown into the engine = more power.
