Actually, there is a white '67 Barracuda coupe in my area with a Hemi/4-speed drivetrain, but my model has to make do with a 383. Such is life.

1969 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S model (Flying Fish)

Last updated Sep 27, 2010  

Photo of a 1969 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S model (Flying Fish)


(Since this is a model car, I'll only accept challenges against other models, diecasts and toys)

No big story behind this one - I've liked the styling of these cars for a long time and found the kit on the closeout table at my favorite hobby shop. I just did it as a quick and fun build, and it definitely was.


AMT 1969 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S 1:25 scale model kit

Factory Options

Formula S package
383 engine
4-speed transmission
Sport Wheels
Raised White Letter Tires
Front Disc Brakes


As I do on most of my models, I added the little details like valve stems on the wheels, battery cables, spark plug wires, sun visors, seat belts, flocked carpeting, the turn signal lever, dimmer switch and the dome light. I also added Bare Metal Foil to the chrome trim.
