Nothing fishy: ’67 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S
When selling a car, quality and presentation are everything. Yes, it is also important to have an interesting car but even then, the phone won’t ring if the buyer gets a negative vibe from…the presentation. We’ll give you an example of a pet peeve of ours. We scoot through hundreds of ads and submissions daily. If you want us to pass you by, take a picture of your car in front of a storage unit. Storage units may be a necessity for some but it makes it seem like, to us, that it is just a car, and you have so many, you don’t know what to do with them. If you are a dealer, you usually have enough savvy to know how to stage a decent pic. So what does this have to do with this submission? We generally don’t find the Barracuda of this vintage interesting. But this one just knocked us over. We love everything about it. It is equipped perfectly, has a nice period color and is in what appears to be freshly, restored condition. These Formula S cars did have a reputation for good handling and nobody can say anything bad about a 383cid 4 barrel. Throw in a 4-speed, disc brakes and put it all in a fastback body and we are hooked. These were clearly not as fast in a straight line as the competitors from GM and Ford but sales in ’67 greatly improved anyway. Yes, we are Mustang snobs and that is probably the reason why we used to ignore Barracudas. No more. We love it down to the poverty hub caps. Click here for the listing.
