History of Plymouth Cars 1920-1929

Plymouth Picture then become the Brand of Plymouth Cars
The Plymouth automobile was introduced first time on July 7, 1928. Former, It was Chrysler's first entry in the field of low price, which was then dominated by Chevrolet and Ford. At that time, plymouths were priced a little higher than the competition, but they offered quality standard features such as internal expanding hydraulic brakes which not provided by the competition. Plymouths were originally sold through only Chrysler dealerships. The logo presented a rear view of the ship Mayflower, which landed at Plymouth Rock. However, the brand name came from Plymouth Binder Twine, chosen by Joe Frazer to its popularity among farmers.

The origins of the first Plymouth can be traced back to the Maxwell automobile. When Walter P. Chrysler took over the company's problems mounted drive from Maxwell-Chalmers in the early 1920s, he inherited the Maxwell as part of the package. Then he used the company's facilities to help create and launch the Chrysler car in 1924, he decided to create a car companion lowest price. So for 1926 the Maxwell was reworked and re-badged as the low-end "52" Chrysler model. In 1928, the "52" was once again redesigned to create the model Chrysler-Plymouth Q. The "Chrysler" part of the plate was abandoned with the introduction of the model U Plymouth in 1929.

First Muscle Car of Original Plymouth Barracuda

The First Muscle Car of original Plymouth Barracuda was built on the chassis body, which was also common to several other popular vehicles manufactured by Dodge Dart, including the Chrysler. It was directly spun off from existing Valiant series to appeal for a sportier market, and is also considered the pony car in the first place, because before the Ford Mustang came to market by two weeks.

In 1967, the Barracuda car's body remained an A, but has been completely redesigned. To complement the fastback model, the vehicle now offered notchback and convertible options, replacing the 1966 versions. This second generation Barracuda would last three years, from 1967 to 1969. An interesting way to visually tell the difference in all three years were the side marker lights: the 1967 Barracuda HAD-side marker lights at all, the 1968 model had small circular ones and the 1969 model much larger rectangular HAD.

In 1970, another reform was for the Barracuda. This new design looked a little different than previous models. One reason is that now was built on a new version, slightly shorter and more joyful Chrysler B-body platform in place, the E-body.

1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Orange-Front Angle

The New Baracuda eliminated the fastback, but kept the two-door coupe and convertible versions. He also had a twin brother known as the Dodge Challenger, not however, an exterior body panel exchanged between two cars. They were bulky, but aggressively and a clean style, although they were clearly influenced by the first generation of the Chevrolet Camaro. After moving to E-body platform, which featured a larger engine bay than the previous A-body Chrysler famous 426 in ³ (7.0L) Hemi would now be available from the factory in the Cuda. "

No big changes for 1971 Barracuda: just a new grille and taillights. This would be the only year the Barracuda That would have four headlights, and also the only year of the optional fender "gills". In 1971 Barracuda engine options would remain the same as that of 70 years, except that now you could not ask for a 440-4bbl in his' Cuda.

1972 Plymouth Barracuda
In 1972, the Barracuda would keep the same general appearance of the ITS until 1974, with dual headlights and four circular lamps. But like other pony cars of the time, the great These Years showed a decrease in the Barracuda's power due to stricter emissions laws. The largest engine available in 1972 was the 340 4bbl, 360 was available in 1974. New rules also security force vehicle in front to have great guards and rear bumper in 1973 and 1974.

1972 Plymouth Barracuda

The Barracuda hanging until 1974, after he was stopped in the middle of the oil crisis of 1973. Production ended 10 years (one day) after it started. Although today they are sought after collector cars, the third generation was a market failure and never successfully competed with rival offerings from Ford and General Motors. The rarity of specific models and combinations today is primarily the result of low interest rates to the original purchaser and production.

1970 Plymouth Barracuda

"The svelte fastback style had its day ... the restyled (Barracuda) is mean and lean this year, with the protrusions, where they should be." Motorcade Magazine, November 1969

1970 Barracuda Black-Front Left View

The 1970 Plymouth Barracuda was an instant classic. The project was muscular with long hood and short rear deck. The new Barracuda was bigger and wider than the previous model and best of all it could contain all the big block engines in the inventory of Plymouth. The 440ci big block Hemi and could easily fit between the fender wells.

The choices were plentiful engine with no less than eleven plants offered. Everything from a humble 125-horsepower 198-cubic-inch slant six to the powerful monster 426 cubic inch Hemi with 425 horsepower. The Plymouth's pony car buyer had many engine options in 1970.

There were basically four models offered in 1970: the base Barracuda, Gran Coupe, the 'Cuda and the AAR' Cuda. The Barracuda was aimed at the base of budget conscious customer. Gran Coupe was the deluxe model, with several upgrades, including special molding and wheel lips on the outside.

The performance model was the Cuda. "He came with the standard big block 383ci and 440ci, both with a 4bbl carb and a" six pack "who set up three smaller two carburetors body together and the legendary Hemi 426ci. All" Cudas came with upgraded suspension, wider tires and longer pauses.

Performance wise the big block Cudas' have been dominating the track. The Hemi could push the pony car down the lane ¼ mile in the low 13 seconds. A fault with the heavy engine weight was large blocks. All that weight on the front end seriously hampered the movement of the car. These large blocks were never designed for the slalom course.

For those looking for straight-line performance and rapid ability to survive a turn or two to AAR Cuda 'was the obvious choice. The AAR or All American Racers was designed for the Trans-Am circuit. The retail version of the AAR came with a 340ci small block engine compared to the "six pack" system carburetor. The exhaust system was unique to the AAR Cuda. He left the car in front of the rear wheels and it looked like the exhaust pipes in real race car AAR. Performance both in the ¼ mile and slalom were very acceptable.

This was the pinnacle year for the muscle car can. The performance cars available from all manufacturers were plentiful and some would say the muscle car had reached its limits based on technology available at the time. The Cuda was defiantly the right kind of car just came a little too late. If this car had appeared in 1968, a seller would have been much better.

Three simple things for keeping your car in working condition as Top Sports

Toyota FT HS Hybrid-Sport Car Concept-Rear View
Everyone who is a sports car owner is a little more expensive than the average family and it's for good reason. A sports car is built only for two things. They are built for beauty, and they are built for speed. Now, there are some people who would argue the order in which the two are willing, however, still comes down to beauty and speed that make a sports car so desirable an article.
Generally, lower end sports cars start in the range of $ 15,000. While sports cars get more sophisticated in the range of one hundred thousand dollars and higher. The most sophisticated sports cars are not exactly the kind of car is bought on a whim, and are usually given exceptionally good care and maintenance.
Toyota FT HS Hybrid-Sport Car Concept-Front Left View

So what is left for the rest of us? They lower end sports cars are more suited to the individual every day, but they deserve special care. If you have a sports car, then you can understand how good it feels when you're tearing down the road in style. That's why you want to take care of your investment so you will last for many years to come.

Since sports cars are built for speed is safe to assume that in some cases, owners will use this power to achieve some speed while driving. It's just human nature for the sports car owner to want to see what the car can do on the open road, and sometimes even see how she handles in the corners.

It's safe to assume that most owners of sports cars do not drive their sports car on a daily basis. In fact, most sports car owners like to take care of your vehicle as they would a favorite pet. So for this reason most sports cars will want to see him in the garage or another protected area until now to unleash the power.

Before leaving his sports car one of the most important things you could do is check your tires. When the vehicle is driven at higher speed, the wear put on the tires is greater so it is important to check the air pressure and wear on the tires trend. Maintaining the manufacturers suggested tire pressure will not only make your car perform better in handling it will also save money for the owner, saving the tire tread.

Another thing that is very important that you maintain control over the oil level in engine. Cars that are driven hard, as one. As a sports car, can sometimes get a leaky gasket or seal which will cause the car to get low on motor oil So it is important to check the oil periodically to ensure that you do not get down the road and have engine seize suddenly from lack of oil in the engine.

Modern sports cars have several types of built-in filters. These filters include oil filters, gas filters and air filters. Depending on what type of car you have, could have more than one air filter must be changed on a regular basis. This keeps the car running smoothly and will make it use less gas and have more power. Of course the oil filter based be changed each time the oil is changed. Most cars need their oil changed every three to five thousand miles or so. Be sure to consult your manufacturer's specifications to determine when you should have this regular maintenance performed.

Muscle Car Picture by John Gunnell

People say 'motors with the power to move you' as 'mucle car'. One example of 'muscle car' is the Sports Car C-Class diesel models with common rail technology. That's  not surprised because diesel sports car will enter the teritory. Three efficient and powerful CDI engines are available for the new C-Class. The C230 CDI is a unit of a six-cylinder common-rail unit with an output of 165kW (224hp), which accelerates the car to 100km / h in 7.7 seconds. The two units CYLIN 4, the C200 and CDI2 C220CDi suffered numberous technical improvements and now deliver even more power and torque significantly. 

Thanks to these measures, such as the expansion of the spray nozzles for piston cooling oil to improve and optimize the supply of oil to the plain bearing, the C200CDI2 now develops 100kW (136hp) and C220CDi has an output of 125kW (170hp). Added to this, metal glow plugs were replaced on both engines for other ceramics that are capable of reaching higher temperatures to improve cold running properties. All diesel engines are naturally equipped with a particulate filter.
