1970 Plymouth Hemi-Cuda

This car was one of the most popular  model and  it is well known for all muscle car funs. Chrysler Corporation’s division Plymouth began producting this car in 1964. Barracuda departed three development steps: First generation from 1964 to 1966, sacond generation from 1967 to 1969 and third  generation from 1970 to 1974.

Though the last generation Barracuda’s design was not  original In contrast of  his predecessors and its sales was not so Impressive, but manufacturers still managed to make the car that could be legend for all time. This was 1970 years modfication  Plymouth Hemi-Cuda.

As we already said new generation barracuda’s design was’t original, it was allmost analogue of Dodge Challenger, and like this last one was produced to compete with cars like Mustang and Camaro. To say the truth neither Barracuda nor  Challenger were ready to compete with such legends, but they still took their place in muscle cars history.

The most impressive modification of  Barracuda was Hemi-Cuda 426 cubic inch(7.0l),V8 Hemi(Hamtramck Plant only) engine with 425 brake horse power. As we sad this car did not distinguished with its original design but we can audaciously say that it was one of the fastest muscle car. Hemi-Cuda could accelerate from 0 to 60 miles(~97kmh) in 6.0 seconds and its max speed was 117 miles per hour.

Fuel price rising and raised insuarence rates became fateful problems for Barracuda and its production ended 1 April of 1974, ten years to the day after first Barracuda was born.
