One of the most popular classic vehicle in the auto industry is the Plymouth Barracuda which has been popularized as the ‘Cuda back in the year1970. And it surely is going to be interesting looking back at what part this vehicle has played in the goings on of the industry.
Production of the vehicle started back in 1964. This vehicle only lived a decade but it sure has gained just the right amount of fame and name to be always remembered in the history of the industry. Coming not with sharks’ fins or with sharp pointed teeth, the ‘Cuda came with the normal share of auto body parts and the whole lot. And it came as a vehicle that held two doors and was an entrant to the compact and midsized car segment.
The very first Plymouth Barracuda was unveiled using an A-body chassis. During that time, such a design has been in use in other vehicles created by Chrysler. And when it came to the market, those who were very much into sporty cars were attracted to the ‘Cuda.
Another thing that made this vehicle quite famous was the engine that it used – the 440-6 and the 426 Hemi engines. In fact, because of such, the Plymouth Barracuda became quite a legend in itself. During its glory days, the ‘Cuda was the speediest and the fastest. Plus, it came with really unique color choices so much so that everything would seem like a blur with this vehicle. Imagine color choices like “Vitamin C”, “Moulin Rouge” and “In-Violet”.
But still, if this vehicle has continued production up until the present, it sure would still be able to top other vehicles and surpass the expectations of various car aficionados.
