1966 Plymouth Barracuda

The Barracuda received a fresh look in 1966 with a facelift and a new taillight design. Distinct Barracuda "fish" emblems were added, as well as more contoured fenders with turn signal indicators in the shape of shark fins. Also new were full-sized bumpers and a unique "cheese-grater" grill, which slanted forward aggressively and featured a distinct grid pattern. New interior features included a redesigned gauge cluster and new optional center console. Engine choices remained the same and included a 225 slant six with 145 hp, a 273 V8 with 180 hp and a 273 V8 with 235 hp.
