In 1967, the second generation of the Plymouth Barracuda (spanning the years 1967-1969) was introduced. Unlike earlier models, this new generation shared little with the Valiant and other A-body designs. Developed in response to meteoric Ponycar sales, the Barracuda was now available in fastback, notchback and convertible versions. The 1968 model received a cleaner grille and tail light assembly, along with new DOT- required side marker lights and dash mounted VIN number.

The Barracuda redesign featured an enlarged engine bay to fit the big block Super Commando 383 4-bbl or 426 Hemi (available in the 1968 stripped-down, drag race package only), and all-new Commando 340 4- bbl. The high-performance Formula S model included dual exhausts with chrome tips, heavy-duty suspension with front anti-sway bar, and E70-14 Red Streak wide tires. A black rear deck appliqué, Formula ‘S’ medallion and blacked-out front grille completed the popular package. Overall, this was one “Bad Fish” as Barracuda owners proudly refer to their cars.
