Plymouth Baracuda was a two-door compact/midsize car manufactured by the Plymouth division of the Chrysler Corporation from 1964 through 1974. The 1970 Hemi Cuda is now one of the most sought-after Classic Muscle Cars. Hemi ’Cuda production was limited: 652 coupes were built in 1970, dropping to just 108 in 1971. Convertible production numbers approach those of some classic European sports cars, with 14 droptop Hemi ’Cudas built in 1970 and only seven in 1971.
The Barracuda’s hystory started in 1964 with a bizarre styling, a huge back window, and a small 273 cubic-inch V-8 engine as its maximum performance package. In 1968 it was built a super light Barracuda with the high-compression "race" version of the 426 Hemi engine. The styling changed radically 50 of these cars have been built. The only problem was that this cars was that where not street legal. They had no safety equipment for street use and no exhaust systems.
