1970 Plymouth Barracuda
V8 Convertible
Originally introduced in 1964 as a fastback, large rear window version of the Valiant; it was offered in 1967 as a line of cars including a fastback, convertible, and a notch back coupe. In 1970, it was totally redesigned with its own 'E-Body' designation.

New styling included the long hood/short deck like the Mustang / Camaro design but unlike its competitors, it was engineered from the 'B-Body' platform that would easily accommodate the big engines and heavy duty brakes, axles and suspension components the market was demanding.

Engine options for the 1970 Barracuda included a 225 slant-six cylinder, 318 V8, 340 four-barrel V8, 383 four-barrel V8, 440 and 426 Hemi V8 engines.

This particular Barracuda is equipped with the 340 cubic-inch engine, painted in Violet Purple with a white interior and an added hockey-stick stripe on the rear quarter panel indicating the engine size in the stripe. This car has the rare column shifter. Most came equipped with the shifter located in an optional center console.

The Plymouth 'Muscle Car' era was marketed as the 'Rapid Transit System' cars: the Duster 340, the 'Cuda, the Road Runner, the GTX and the Sport Fury GT.
