1970 Plymouth ʻCuda
The Barracuda was originally a variant of the Plymouth Valiant but as the car gained popularity, it received its own unique sheet metal. The third generation styling, such as this one, is the first time the car was based on its own design and was able to shake the stigma of an “economy car.”
