24. 1973-74 Plymouth Barracuda
There are numerous big fans of those early 1970s Barracudas since they were one of the best muscle cars ever. To be exact, the 1970-71 Barracudas featured high power engines like the 440 or mighty 426 Hemi. However, all other models after the 1971 model year had reduced power outputs, so the cars lost their appeal and performance.
That’s why the 1973-74 Barracudas are a great proposition if you’re looking for a cool Chrysler E-Body. You don’t have to pay the insane prices of the original ’70-’71 models. The ’73-’74 versions have the same design and details, but also detuned engines and modest performances.
This is why those model years are fantastic choices for restoration, restomoding, or even making a Hemi clone. Prices are in the $30,000 range for cars in great condition. Look for the optional 440 models or standard Barracuda if you plan to modify it.
