1969 Barracuda

1969 Barracuda The 1969 Barracuda came at the end of the second generation of Plymouth’s pony car which lasted from just 1967 to 1969. Chrysler introduced the Barracuda in 1964 as sporty performance cars were really gaining popularity in the U.S. 1974 was the last year for the model. In the early ‘70s, performance cars went downhill thanks to stricter safety and emission regulations. The Barracuda was one of many casualties.

Based on the Valiant A-body, the 1969 Barracuda and the other members of the second generation came in fastback, notchback, and convertible body styles. They also received significant restyling as compared to the previous generation of models from 1964 to 1966.

Cuda 440The 1970 Cuda 440 was just one member of the well-loved line of Barrcuda muscle cars produced by Plymouth from 1964 to 1974. The first generation of Barracudas ran from 1964 to 1966. They were based on the body of the Plymouth Valiant. From 1967 to 1969, the second generation cars were still Valiant-based, but totally redesigned and available in convertible, fastback, and notchback body styles.

1970 Cuda:

Plymouth introduced its entry into the pony car market with the Barracuda. It began life as an A-body, fastback coupe that was based on the Valiant. For the second generation, the car was redesigned and available as a fastback, notchback, and convertible. By the third and final generation, lasting only until 1974, the Barracuda was no longer related to the Valiant and was made on an E-body platform.
