    Flower Power - 1969 Plymouth Barracuda | Hemmings Motor News

    appears it was a special edition for the lady hippie of 1969.....didnt realize Chrysler has been doing these stupid special editions like they do today with Challengers ( inaugural edition, black top, yellow jacket)

    my favorite part is the seats

    notice how it says you could get a 440 by special order for this car.....i never knew you could get more than a 383 in a 69 barracuda.....it appears these seats got you the option of a 440!!!

    Fast forward 46 years...future muscle car nut...maybe not even born yet...

    "...and you could get those Hellcats with a sunroof, well, was supposed to be an option but I don't think any were made...and there was something called Brass Monkey wheels..."

    "...there was even a Hellcat forum with a man who loved trees and another guy who kept getting banned and something about a knob gang..."

    In 1969, the 'Cuda was born. Before that, there was only the Barracuda. The 'Cuda could be ordered with a 440 and back in those days, you could check off your options as you wanted. They did have some "packages" but for the most part, you just ordered the car exactly how you wanted. They even has a "taste" clause that allowed you to order a car that was generally considered "less than tasteful". Like a green car with orange seats, they just had to verify with the dealer that was what was intended to be ordered. Most of your models could be had with any available engine. One exception was the 'Cuda could only be ordered with a V8, the Barracuda could be had with any engine including the 6 cylinder.

    The Mod Top has always been one of my guilty pleasures. I have tried to talk my wife into letting me restore an old 1969 barracuda with a Mod Top and letting me call it her's. She has not gone for it yet.

    Nice information TincCuda,

    I have a 68 Barracuda convertible and was aware of the 440 option but not of the mod top.

    Street version 340 six pack was rated at 290HP (standard was 275HP) but it actually produced over 335HP same as the 383 but 100lbs lighter
