When Ford introduced the Mustang in 1964, it took the world by storm. Right from the very beginning the rest of Detroit knew they had to have an answer for this wide open market. It took just a few years for Chevrolet to respond with the Camaro, but Plymouth already had something in the works. Introduced on April 1, 1964, which was a full two weeks before the Mustang, Plymouths Barracuda was a car that should have given the Mustang a good run for its Money. Selling for $2,365 and riding on a 106-inch wheelbase, the Barracuda was a beautifully styled car that featured the largest rear window ever installed on a production car up to that time. The Barracuda certainly didnt post the huge numbers that the Mustang did, but a respectable 23,443 were built for its first year. Standard features on the Barracuda were bucket seats, a bucket styled rear bench seat with folding armrest, and styled wheel covers with three bar spinners. There was also several engines options available for any need. Clearly the Barracuda was an excellent car for the money, and one can only wonder what sales would have been like if the Mustang had held off for just a few years. Offered here is an excellent example of the Barracuda, a 1965 model finished in Plymouths Bright Red. This is a nicely restored car that is both beautiful and correct in its restoration. The perfection of Plymouths styling comes alive in this excellent example of Plymouths heritage. The fit and finish of this Barracudas body stands up well to the closest inspection. It also still wears its factory correct wheel covers that are a nice compliment to its gleaming red paint. The interior of this Barracuda presents just as well as the exterior with all factory accessories complete and intact. The seating, dashboard, steering wheel, and console mounted shifter all have the look and feel of the classic 1960s pony car from the past. Power for this Barracuda comes from a 273 cubic-inch V-8 rated at 180 horsepower, more than enough to keep its 2,749 pounds up with modern traffic. The Mustang may have stolen the show for 1964, but in the present day car shows are filled with mid-sixties Mustangs while the Barracuda always stands alone as a car with unique styling. This example with its excellent restoration and dedication to authenticity is a car that is at home on the road as well as on the show field. Prospective buyers of pony cars from the 1960s should look this Barracuda over closely in order to fully appreciate its excellent condition
