The legendary Plymouth Barracuda - An era of Muscle Cars

The Plymouth Barracuda was one of the iconic representatives of the Muscle Car era in the United States. The vehicle, built in the third generation from 1970 to 1974, is a symbol of the power and style of the early 70s. Originally designed as a competitor to the Ford Mustang, the Plymouth Barracuda was designed by John E. Herlitz and John Samsen. The third generation, also known as the E-Body, was introduced in 1970 and offered a variety of engine options, from the 225 cubic-inch inline-six to the powerful 440 cubic-inch Hemi V8 engine. Interesting events in 1970, such as the first moon landing by Apollo 13 and the legendary song "Let It Be" by the Beatles, provide a temporal context for the introduction of the vehicle.
