Today’s car is a 1967 Plymouth Barracuda Convertible owned by Ron Evans. This is the first year the convertible was offered in the Barracuda. It is finished in Bright Red with a Black interior and boot. I saw this car a Zimmerman Automobile Driving Museum at their Muscle Car Show in February. It is powered by a 408 cu in, 6.68 liter, stroker V8, with a FITech Port Injection, producing around 470 hp. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a Chrysler TorqueFlite three-speed automatic transmission, delivering that power to the rear wheels through 3.55 to 1 rear end gear ratio. Helping slow this baby down are disc brakes up front and drums in the rear. The suspension up front are torsion bars, a front anti-roll bar, in the rear are semi-elliptical springs and shocks both front and rear. The original MSRP was $2,860.00. The total number of 1967 Barracudas produced was 34,338 of which 4,228 were convertibles.
This is a very clean car that has a presence. It is a great car for car shows, Cars and Coffee get togethers, and just cruising around Southern California. Thanks for riding along. Frank
