Most Powerful Engine Available! - 273C.I. V8 Engine - Pushbutton TorqueFlite Automatic Transmission - Unique Design - Bucket Seats - Bold Red Interior - Finished in White w/ Thin Black Stripe

Ford's Mustang wasn't exactly the best kept secret in the automotive world before it's release, and this gave Chrysler and General Motors time to react. While General Motors thought they were prepared with the Corvair Monza, Chrysler didn't have anything they considered sporty enough to compete with this newcomer, but they had the Valiant. Chrysler designers took the Plymouth Valiant design and tweaked it into a graceful two-door fastback that sported the largest single piece of glass ever fitted to a normal production car at the time. The Barracuda was born, named after one of the most feared vicious fish in the world. The Barracuda was successfully introduced for the 1964 model year and beat the Mustang to market by two weeks. Of course, we all know the story of the Mustang and it's success, but the Barracuda offered a unique experience for those that wanted something a little different. This first year Barracuda is an excellent example that sports the highest power engine available, the potent 273C.I. V8, and is connected to a TorqueFlite automatic transmission which is one of the last to be operated by Pushbutton controls which featured a unique switch to ensure there were no accidental gear changes. The interior of this Barracuda sports bold red vinyl on bucket seats in the front and a comfortable bench in the rear. Behind the rear seats is a convenient large storage area for anything too large to fit in the trunk. The dashboard is simple and sleek just like the rest of this charming little Mopar. The exterior is finished in White with a thin black stripe that follows the unique lines of this one-of-a-kind Plymouth. This bold color combination certainly brings this car a lot of attention in our showroom, and will certainly bring admiration and smiles from others wherever you take it. This Barracuda is just waiting for a new owner to make new memories with, why not make that new owner you?
