Holiday Gift Idea: Colorful Plymouth Barracuda Inspiration
Nevermind that the Plymouth Barracuda later got passed and left in the dust, it was a trendsetter when introduced in the spring of 1964 as a Valiant option package just a few weeks prior to the Mustang.
The Barracuda came in several beautiful shades of paint. We love the way that Plymouth showed this in its brochure, so we found some colorful items for purchase inspired by this Barracuda ad. We love this image of a real car painted in stripes to mimic the illustration from the brochure. (Click here to see the rest of the 1964 brochure.)
