About Plymouth Barracudas
Movie buffs and Stephen King lovers may remember the maniacal Plymouth automobile from the 1983 movie "Christine," and the brand retains many fans, despite being discontinued in 2001. Plymouth Barracudas are considered one of the most popular Plymouth vehicle models, and collectors regard the long, low, two-door car as one of the original muscle cars. Sporting a powerful LA V8 engine, the original 1964 Plymouth Barracuda actually predated the much more popular Ford Mustang by several weeks. The original 1964 version of the Barracuda is particularly well loved, as it did not sell in large numbers. Added to this, thanks to increasingly demanding governmental safety and emission regulations, the vehicle saw a reduction in power as time went by. The 1972 Plymouth Barracuda had a noticeably de-tuned engine in order to meet these strict emission standards, and the model was discontinued two years later. One of the most collectible muscle cars of a generation, Plymouth Barracudas are of great interest to lovers of classic cars, and you can find a great selection of classic Plymouth vehicles of all varieties on eBay.
