The Plymouth Barracuda is a two-door car that was manufactured by the Plymouth division of the Chrysler Corporation from 1964 to 1974.
The first-generation Barracuda, fastback A-body coupe based on the Plymouth Valiant, ad distinctive wraparound back glass and was available from 1964 to 1966.
The second-generation 1967 to 1969 Barracuda, hough still Valiant-based, as heavily redesigned. Second-generation A-body cars were available in fastback, otchback, nd convertible versions.
The 1970 to 1974 E-body Barracuda, o longer Valiant-based, as available as a coupe and a convertible, oth of which were very different from the previous models. The final model year for the Barracuda was 1974.
The redesign for the 1970 Barracuda removed all its previous commonality with the Valiant. The original fastback design was deleted from the line and the Barracuda now consisted of coupe and convertible models. The all-new model, tyled by John E. Herlitz, as built on a shorter, ider version of Chrysler's existing B platform, alled the E-body. Sharing this platform was the newly launched Dodge Challenger; however no sheet metal interchanged between the two cars, nd the Challenger, t 110 inches (2,800 mm), ad a wheelbase that was 2 inches (51 mm) longer than the Barracuda.
The E-body Barracuda was now "able to shake the stigma of 'economy car'. Three versions were offered for 1970 and 1971: the base Barracuda (BH), he luxury oriented Gran Coupe (BP), nd the sport model 'Cuda (BS).For one year (1971), here also was the Barracuda Coupe, low-end model which (like other Coupe series Chrysler Corp. offered that year) had a fixed rear passenger window and minor B pillar instead of roll-down rear passenger windows. The high-performance models were marketed as 'Cuda deriving from the 1969 option. The E-body's engine bay was larger than that of the previous A-body, acilitating the release of Chrysler's 426 cu in (7.0 L) Hemi for the regular retail market.
For 1970 and 1971, he Barracuda and Barracuda Gran Coupe had two six-cylinder engines available - a new 198 cu in (3.2 L) version of the slant-6, nd the 225 - as well as three different V8s: the 318ci, he 383ci with two-barrel carburetor and single exhaust, nd the 383ci with four-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust 330 hp (250 kW) SAE gross. The Cuda had the 383ci 335 hp (250 kW) SAE gross (same as Dodge's 383 Magnum) as the standard engine. It also had the 440ci four-barrel Super Commando, he 440ci six-barrel Super Commando Six Pak, nd the 426ci Hemi. The 440- and Hemi-equipped cars received upgraded suspension components and structural reinforcements to help transfer the power to the road.
