Ooh, (The 1971) Barracuda!


Although it's a chilly day here in Auburn Hills — the heat's coming from both the above-referenced lyric and from the sun shining down and radiating off of this gorgeous 1971 Plymouth Barracuda. It's lovingly maintained by the original owner who's damn proud of his 'Cuda performance package and the 340 engine — pushing out 275 hp and 340 lb-ft of torque at a low-to-the flo' 3,200 rpm. The '71 'Cuda was the last "real" year for a car many consider to be the first "pony" (fish?) car — the first one hit the streets two weeks before Ford's Mustang back in 1964 — as the 1972 model dropped a few of the horses that made the Barracuda famous.
