1969 Plymouth BarracudaSerious about performance in 1969, Plymouth was upgrading the Barracuda as a serious contender to be reckoned with. Boosting engine horsepower to 330 on the popular 383 V8 engine option, Plymouth also introduced a cosmetic package built around the Formula S option, which they called the 'Cuda. The 'Cuda could be had with either the 275 hp 340 V8 or the 383. Still not as powerful as hoped, Plymouth began stuffing the triple carb 440 V8 under the hood, the largest engine yet available in the pony car. Available with automatic only and manual steering as well as too much weight over the front wheels, handling and braking suffered. The ’69 Barracuda optioned with the 440 was recorded as running the ¼ mile in 14.01 seconds and the 383 in 15.5 seconds. Engine options consisted of a 340 V8 with 275 hp, 383 V8 with 330 hp and a 440+6 V8 with 390 hp.
