The 1968 Barracuda was largely a stylistic rehash, but there were important changes under the hood. The 273 V-8s were dropped in favor of the 230-horsepower 318 as the base V-8. The Formula S package was extended to the hardtop and convertible models and now it could be had with MoPar’s frisky 275-horsepower 340-cube four-barrel. The Formula S 383, meanwhile, got a boost to 300 horsepower, courtesy of new cylinder heads and a new intake manifold. Fastest of all were the limited-edition Super Stock Hemi Barracudas, which were built under contract by Hurst Performance and sold through Plymouth dealers for sanctioned drag racing only. These were true factory 10-second, 130-mph quarter-mile machines ready to hit the drag strip on day one. This design is a recreation from a rather trippy advertising decal campaign that was very Yellow Submarine looking, but did fit the rather hippie style of the day and was used to promote multiple Plymouth models.
