1966 Plymouth Barracuda Additional Info:

Chrysler upped their game on cars like this 1966 Plymouth Barracuda so it could compete with Ford's Mustang. With its correct V8 under the hood and distinct styling, this affordable coupe has an appeal that goes well beyond it value price. There's nothing else on the road that looks like an early Barracuda. It has absolutely unique piece like that massive wrap-around rear window (largest ever of its era) and crisp creases along the tops of the fenders. So while it was derived from the popular Valiant, the Barracuda received enough of its own sheet metal to be devilishly distinctive. Plus, a later respray of the factory-correct gold metallic paint with all the right shining brightwork makes for a terrific vintage presentation. We know you love the full black racing stripes and side pinstripes that give it the kind of flare to beat a Mustang. And so for many of us, a coupe that's this special and has such a complete presentation is worth the asking price alone. The Barracuda had a true sporty design, and this highly original/correct interior shows it off perfectly. The bucket seats have been recovered in the factory's intricate pattern, so you can feel it tickle your back as you slip behind the wheel. The steering wheel retains its cool intricate design it got from the Los Angles factory. There's all the best driver-oriented features, like the large tachometer, center console, and floor shifter. And this classic coupe is presented correctly, right down to the AM radio that's still cranking tunes. The best Barracudas received the 273 cubic-inch Commando V8. It's an important motor to the pony car wars, and so we're happy to see this D-code car have the correct displacement V8 under the hood. Matching the numbers on a '66 is a near impossible task, but it's hard to say that this one doesn't look correct with the bold orange block radiating against all the gloss black components. When a strong motor like this is mated to a three-speed automatic transmission, and there's also power steering, the result is a terrific cruising classic. Complete with the original warranty card, Mopars are always the rarest of the bunch. So to find an interesting V8 Barracuda for such an affordable price is a deal plenty of us can't resist. That's why you need to hurry and call today!
