The Plymouth automobile was introduced first time on July 7, 1928. Former, It was Chrysler's first entry in the field of low price, which was then dominated by Chevrolet and Ford. At that time, plymouths were priced a little higher than the competition, but they offered quality standard features such as internal expanding hydraulic brakes which not provided by the competition. Plymouths were originally sold through only Chrysler dealerships. The logo presented a rear view of the ship Mayflower, which landed at Plymouth Rock. However, the brand name came from Plymouth Binder Twine, chosen by Joe Frazer to its popularity among farmers.

The origins of the first Plymouth can be traced back to the Maxwell automobile. When Walter P. Chrysler took over the company's problems mounted drive from Maxwell-Chalmers in the early 1920s, he inherited the Maxwell as part of the package. Then he used the company's facilities to help create and launch the Chrysler car in 1924, he decided to create a car companion lowest price. So for 1926 the Maxwell was reworked and re-badged as the low-end "52" Chrysler model. In 1928, the "52" was once again redesigned to create the model Chrysler-Plymouth Q. The "Chrysler" part of the plate was abandoned with the introduction of the model U Plymouth in 1929.

To complement the fastback model, the vehicle now offered notchback and convertible options, replacing the 1966 versions. This second generation Barracuda would last three years, from 1967 to 1969. An interesting way to visually tell the difference in all three years were the side marker lights: the 1967 Barracuda HAD-side marker lights at all, the 1968 model had small circular ones and the 1969 model much larger rectangular HAD.

No big changes for 1971 Barracuda: just a new grille and taillights. This would be the only year the Barracuda That would have four headlights, and also the only year of the optional fender "gills". In 1971 Barracuda engine options would remain the same as that of 70 years, except that now you could not ask for a 440-4bbl in his' Cuda.

1972 Plymouth Barracuda
In 1972, the Barracuda would keep the same general appearance of the ITS until 1974, with dual headlights and four circular lamps. But like other pony cars of the time, the great These Years showed a decrease in the Barracuda's power due to stricter emissions laws. The largest engine available in 1972 was the 340 4bbl, 360 was available in 1974. New rules also security force vehicle in front to have great guards and rear bumper in 1973 and 1974.

1972 Plymouth Barracuda

The Barracuda hanging until 1974, after he was stopped in the middle of the oil crisis of 1973. Production ended 10 years (one day) after it started.

1970 Plymouth Barracuda

"The svelte fastback style had its day ... the restyled (Barracuda) is mean and lean this year, with the protrusions, where they should be." Motorcade Magazine, November 1969

1970 Barracuda Black-Front Left View

The 1970 Plymouth Barracuda was an instant classic. The project was muscular with long hood and short rear deck. The new Barracuda was bigger and wider than the previous model and best of all it could contain all the big block engines in the inventory of Plymouth. The 440ci big block Hemi and could easily fit between the fender wells.

1970 Barracuda Black-Left View

The choices were plentiful engine with no less than eleven plants offered. Everything from a humble 125-horsepower 198-cubic-inch slant six to the powerful monster 426 cubic inch Hemi with 425 horsepower. The Plymouth's pony car buyer had many engine options in 1970.

1970 Barracuda Black-Opened Engine Front Left View

There were basically four models offered in 1970: the base Barracuda, Gran Coupe, the 'Cuda and the AAR' Cuda. The Barracuda was aimed at the base of budget conscious customer. Gran Coupe was the deluxe model, with several upgrades, including special molding and wheel lips on the outside. The interior upgrades include leather bucket seats and a console with a molded headliner.

The performance model was the Cuda. "He came with the standard big block 383ci and 440ci, both with a 4bbl carb and a" six pack "who set up three smaller two carburetors body together and the legendary Hemi 426ci. All" Cudas came with upgraded suspension, wider tires and longer pauses.

1970 Barracuda Red-Right View

Performance wise the big block Cudas' have been dominating the track. The Hemi could push the pony car down the lane ¼ mile in the low 13 seconds. A fault with the heavy engine weight was large blocks. All that weight on the front end seriously hampered the movement of the car. These large blocks were never designed for the slalom course.
1970 Barracuda Silver-Left View

For those looking for straight-line performance and rapid ability to survive a turn or two to AAR Cuda 'was the obvious choice. The AAR or All American Racers was designed for the Trans-Am circuit. The retail version of the AAR came with a 340ci small block engine compared to the "six pack" system carburetor. The exhaust system was unique to the AAR Cuda. He left the car in front of the rear wheels and it looked like the exhaust pipes in real race car AAR. Performance both in the ¼ mile and slalom were very acceptable.

This was the pinnacle year for the muscle car can. The performance cars available from all manufacturers were plentiful and some would say the muscle car had reached its limits based on technology available at the time. The Cuda was defiantly the right kind of car just came a little too late. If this car had appeared in 1968, a seller would have been much better.
