Spotted this pair of Detroit classics, a Dodge Dart 270 and Plymouth Barracuda, laying low on Driggs Street in Brooklyn. The Dart was in great condition, showing good chrome and paint work (perhaps the subject of a restoration in the last 5-10 years). The Barracuda, on the other hand, looked pretty tired with heavily faded paint, chrome and rubber moldings. There was even an “M” missing from the Plymouth logo. But the old Mustang-fighter is appealing in a survivor kind of way. Just knowing that it is used daily and still running well accounts for much of its curbside appeal. Check out the abundance of glass used in making the Barracuda’s handsome fastback body style – it was the largest ever installed on a standard production car up at the time.
