1967 Plymouth Barracuda Fastback

The '67 Barracuda fastback was more like the rest of the emerging pony car market in 1967, as it was larger and featured more powerful options. Though the car still shared the same A-body wheelbase with the Valiant, the sheet metal used for the Barracuda was completely different than the Valiant, finally breaking the Barracuda away from that model, which had been the inspiration for the three years of the first-generation Barracudas. The most notable changes were the completely redesigned front and rear of the car. For the fastback models, the large wraparound glass of the previous Barracudas was scrapped for a smaller, more angled rear window.

The fastback model was still the overall best selling Barracuda model in 1967, and 30,110 were produced. The fastback had a base retail price of $2,639.

This 1/64 scaled '67 Plymouth Barracuda was made by Johnny Lightning for their Muscle Car Series.
