1973 Plymouth


In 1973 the Muscle Car world was fading, and that year’s Arab oil embargo didn’t help. The 73 Model was almost an exact clone of the 72 except for the use of 5 MPH bumper reinforcements on front and rear. Plymouth decided to do away with the Slant Six to make it seem as if their Barracuda was a complete muscle car to the bone. The Barracuda was sadly enough last in number of sales for this year compared to all the other pony cars.

There were few visible differences between 1972 and 1973 Barracudas: the side marker light positions were slightly changed, a 'Cuda body-side stripe had a flat bottom edge, and there were impact-absorbing black rubber bumper guards. The latter didn't detract much from the lines of the original thin-line bumpers. But then, they didn't offer much extra protection either, except in head (or tail-) on situations.
