Barracuda Muscle Portfolio 1964-1974 by R M Clarke (2003). Although the Barracuda was introduced a few weeks before the Mustang in 1964 the earlier models lacked muscle. The 273 helped sales but not for long and in 1967 Plymouth redesigned the car and the engine options included the 383. The 1967 sales figures, however, would never be equalled. For 1969 buyers could have the 440 V8 and body styling was again changed. Despite this and a limited incursion into racing the sales slide could not be halted. As with all other muscle cars the early 1970s emissions and safety regulations killed them off. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, specification and technical data, driver's impressions, new model introductions and history.
Challenger & 'Cuda: Mopar's E-Body Muscle Cars by Robert Genat (2005). Chrysler entered the pony-car market with the capable but unlovely Barracuda in the early 1960s. The car was refined over the years, becoming a true muscle car, and a rather handsome one at that, but it wasn't until the advent of the E-body pony cars from 1970-1974 Barracudas, the Dodge Challenger and Plymouth 'Cuda that Chrysler became a true player in the pony-car market. This book tells the story of Chrysler's pony car series, from the advent of the original Barracuda in 1964 to the final days of the smog-motored Challengers and 'Cudas of the mid-1970s, focusing on the series heyday in the early 1970s.
Dodge Challenger And Plymouth Barracuda by Peter Grist (2009).

An in-depth look at the very desirable pony cars from Plymouth and Dodge that managed to beat the Ford Mustang to the dealerships and went on to become one of the most sought after classic cars of all time.

Plymouth Barracuda: A History In Advertising 1964-1974 by William McBride (2001) CD ROM. Beating the Mustang to the showroom wasn't enough to make the Barracuda THE sporty car of the 1960s, but by the time the Hemi-Cuda rolled out in 1970, every Mustang, Camaro, Firebird and Javelin feared for their pink slips.
