The Pymouth Barracuda: Chrysler's Original Two-Door Pony Car
With rumors of the development of a new type of sport compact car - a car that would eventually become the legendary Ford Mustang - Chrysler sought to modify one of their own cars - the Valiant - in an effort to compete in the new segment. While it can be argued that the Barracuda didn't truly succeed in doing so until the introduction of the second-generation Barracuda in 1967, all Barracuda's are sought-after by collectors today. The third-generation 'Cuda shared the E-body platform with its cousin, the 1st generation Dodge Challenger.
