This 1970 Plymouth Barracuda Is Utterly Stunning
The Plymouth Barracuda got a fresh lease of life in 1970, with a complete redesign and a performance overhaul that led to a 50% increase in sales.
The Gran Coupe was the luxury-themed model of the Barracuda at the time, replete with all creature comforts that existed at the time.
This particular model also boasts muscle under the hood with a 383 cu in V8, paired with a TorqueFlite automatic transmission, the listing is by a Florida dealer and there’s a $599 dealer fee attached to the sale as well.
The dealer has not provided too many details, except that the car lay with a collector for the last 30 years, and they cared for it well.
The listing states it runs and drives excellent, although there are no details given on whether the engine is the original one, swapped, or even overhauled.
Just Hours Left To Bid On This Classic Plymouth Barracuda
The car comes with all the luxuries a Barracuda could have back in the day including power windows, leather bucket seats, a power top, air conditioning, and Rally pack gauges.
There is a Kenwood sound system added in as well.
There are less than 10 hours left to bid on this beauty and the last bid stands at $50,100, which has still not met the reserve.
The ‘Vitamin C’ orange classic comes with a stunning cream interior that looks near untouched, and with just 65,478 miles on it, we can’t quite believe how stunning it looks, inside and out.
The previous owners retouched the paint as well, and the fender tag and build sheet confirm this car is as listed.
With about 335 horsepower on tap and enough torque to put you back in the seat, this Plymouth Barracuda can sing an engine note that’ll be music to any muscle car fan. It will be interesting to see what this very rare Barracuda drop top sells for.
