1964/65 Plymouth Barracuda
1963 Valiant Super Sprint sketch, the performance design inspiration for the Barracuda.
Airbrush design by Irv Ritchie that led to the Barracuda: C pillar goes toward rear; utilizes 1963 Valiant front fender; no circular emblem below rear window. Production '64-'65 Barracudas used fenders that were also used on the 1965 Valiant.
