In the fall of 1969, Chrysler introduced the third-generation Barracuda along with a similar-looking Dodge Challenger. The Plymouth version came in two strengths: regular Barracudas with basic six-cylinder and small-displacement V-8 engines; and performance-oriented ’Cuda models that featured larger 383-cubic-inch, 440-cube and 426 “Hemi” powerplants with as much as 425 horsepower.
That year, the decision was made by Chrysler execs to supplement the corporation’s existing competition program, which was primarily centered on drag racing and NASCAR, by sponsoring Barracuda and Dodge Challenger teams in the 1970 Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Trans-American sedan road racing series.
