1970 PLYMOUTH BARRACUDA 383 SPORTS AUTO COUPE - 5785 MILES SHOWING
The Plymouth Barracuda is a two-door pony car that was manufactured by Plymouth from 1964 to 1974.
The first-generation Barracuda was based on the Chrysler A-body and was offered from 1964 to 1966. A two-door hardtop fastback, it shared a great majority of parts and bodywork with the Plymouth Valiant, except for the huge and highly distinctive wraparound rear glass.
The second-generation Barracuda, though still Valiant-based, was heavily redesigned. Built from 1967 to 1969, it was available in fastback, hardtop, and convertible versions.
The third generation, offered from 1970 to 1974, was based on the Chrysler E-body, exclusive to it and the slightly larger Dodge Challenger. A completely new design, it was available in hardtop and convertible body styles
