On This Day


Friday 25th November 1966

55 years ago

The 1967 Plymouth Barracuda was introduced. The new 2nd generation Barracuda was styled chiefly by John E. Herlitz and John Samsen. It was less rectilinear than the Valiant, with Coke-bottle side contours and heavily revised front and rear end styling. Design cues included a concave rear deck panel, wider wheel openings, curved side glass, and S-curved roof pillars on the notchback. The rear portion of the roof on the fastback coupe was more streamlined, and the back glass, raked at a substantially horizontal angle, was much smaller compared with that of the previous model. Also, the use of chrome trim on the external sheet metal was more restrained.
