According to Jim Colville his 1968 Plymouth Barracuda was never sold as a new car. He surmises that his car may have been used as a demonstrator or perhaps as a salesman's car.
Records indicate that when it first was sold and registered in 1969 it had been driven 9,000 miles and was sold as a used car. As a new car the base price was $2,842.
During the next decade and a half the sleek Barracuda changed hands a few times before Colville saw that it was offered for sale in Rockville, Maryland. He bought it and drove it home to Virginia.
