Plymouth Barracuda 1966 Description

Chrysler upped their game on cars like this 1966 Plymouth Barracuda so it could compete with Ford's Mustang. With its correct style 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, with 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 sheetmetal to be devilishly distinctive. Plus, gloss black paint with all the right shining brightwork makes for a terrific vintage presentation. In fact, most of us know finding straight panels and complete trim is such a rarity that the body is worth the asking price alone.The Barracuda had a true sporty design, and this dark blue interior shows it off perfectly. The bucket seats have been recovered in the factory's cool 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. And as you look across the dashboard, the sea of blue is artfully broken up by plenty of stainless and chrome that's across the dash and heat/defrost controls. There's even an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo. 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 this one appears to have all its correct factory-issued components, including the bold orange block, alternator, radiator, and decal on the air topper. When a strong motor like this is mated to a TorqueFlite three-speed automatic transmission, the result is a terrific cruising classic.Mopars are always the rarest of the bunch, and 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!
