1965 Plymouth Barracuda - $14,500

Powered by a V8, this fastback Barracuda coupe packs style and performance. Automatic transmission. Radial tires. Finished in Teal metallic paint with black vinyl interior (the car was originally baby blue but has been repainted). Original interior. The drivers seat back has a tear in the top (our Motorland Service Center can reupholster the seat). The Barracuda was a new car introduced the year before. Based on Chrysler's compact A-body platform, the Barracuda made its debut in fastback form on April 1, 1964. The new model used the Valiant's 106 in (2,692 mm) wheelbase and the Valiant hood, headlamp bezels, windshield, vent windows, quarter panels, doors, A-pillar, and bumpers; the trunk and some of the glass was new. Utilizing the same hybrid design approach as Ford did turning its Falcon into the Mustang significantly reduced Plymouth's development and tooling cost and time for the new model. The greatest effort was put into creating its distinguishing 14.4 sq ft (1.34 m2) rear window, a collaboration between Pittsburgh Plate Glass (PPG) and Chrysler designers that created the largest ever installed on a standard production car to that time. The rear seats fold down to create an extra spacious interior compartment with the wraparound rear glass, in addition to the normal rear trunk. Fun fact: The Barracuda was originally supposed to be named the Plymouth Panda.
