Mr. Fly's 1967 Plymouth Barracuda Convertible
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....
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
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.
