1964 Plymouth Barracuda
The debut of the Plymouth Barracuda

1964 Plymouth Barracuda

First introduced in 1964 the Plymouth Barracuda was considered by many as the first pony car as it was launched two weeks before the Ford Mustang. Officially called the Valiant Barracuda and based on the compact Valiant, the new Barracuda was built on the A body chassis with a fastback super-structure. The interior featured the Signet's bucket-seats and a fold-down rear seat-back and security panel for carrying long items. Original marketing for the vehicle boasted features and design that were both efficient and convenient. Engine options included the same as the Valiant, with a 170 Slant Six, a 225 Slant Six or a 273 V8 with 180 or 235 hp.
