Here is another epic video from the Pure Stock Drags annual event held at Mid Michigan Motorplex. This time we have a rare 1969 Plymouth Barracuda that came from the factory with the 440 Cuda package paired with Torqueflite automatic and 3.91 geared rear end.
The 440 Cuda competitor is a 1970 Pontiac GTO powered by 455 V8 mated to Turbo 400 3-speed transmission and set of 3.55 rear gears. The Mopar certainly has the advantage in terms of power and weight, but still watching those classics run down the 1/4 mile is a treat.
The Cuda 440 was rated 375 horsepower. The GTO 455 was rated 360 horsepower.The Plymouth Barracuda weighs 3604 pounds including driver. The GTO weighs-in at 4024 pounds with driver.
There were only 340 total 1969 Plymouth Barracuda Cuda 440 cars produced. 1986 GTOs were produced in 1970 with a hardtop and the 455 V8.
