Mr. Fly's 1967 Plymouth Barracuda Convertible

1967 Plymouth Baracuda Artwork

We don't know if fly fishing for Barracuda is recommended by veteran anglers, but we do know of at least one Fly that landed one.


When Plymouth decided to name this model the "Barracuda", they were obviously trying to evoke an image of speed and aggressiveness. Well, were going to give this Cuda a make-over and give it some real teeth. So, when this hemi-powered fish swims up next to you at a stop light, keep real still, or you might just end up as lunch....

1967 Plymouth Baracuda Convertible - profile.

Introduced in 1964, the Cuda made its appearance a scant two weeks before the Ford Mustang. To some that makes it America's first pony car, though it would receive little respect as one until 1967 when you could get them with the 383 ci Hemi.

'67 was the year that the Cuda was redesigned. For one thing is got a bigger engine bay so it could acommodate the new Hemi offering. It was also the year they introduced a convertible version of the car.

All things considered this one is not in bad shape for a completely stock car. Some rust on the floor boards and rockers and qtr. panels, but nearly as bad as some cars in this age bracket. The nose will need some work...

This particular car rolled off the line in Detroit with a 225 ci Slant Six which was the base engine for this car. It won't be leaving with one. A 528 ci Indy Cylinder Head, all aluminum Hemi, will make this a Pony car to be reckoned with.
