The third-generation 1970 to 1974E-bodyBarracuda, was no longer based on the Valiant. The completely new design was shared with theDodge Challengerand available in hardtop and convertible body styles. The Barracuda was discontinued after the 1974 model year.
The redesign for the 1970 Barracuda removed all its previouscommonalitywith the Valiant. The original fastback design was deleted from the line and the Barracuda now consisted of coupe and convertible models. The all-new model, styled byJohn E. Herlitz, was built on a shorter, wider version of Chrysler's existingB platform, called theE-body.Sharing this platform was the newly launchedDodge Challenger; however no exterior sheet metal interchanged between the two cars, and the Challenger, at 110 inches (2,800mm), had a wheelbase that was 2 inches (51mm) longer than the Barracuda.
The E-body Barracuda was now "able to shake the stigma of 'economy car'."Three versions were offered for 1970 and 1971: the base Barracuda (BH), the luxury oriented Gran Coupe (BP), and the sport model 'Cuda (BS).Beginning mid year 1970, and ending with the 1971 model, there also was the Barracuda Coupe (A93), a low-end model which included the 198ci Slant Six as a base engine, lower grade interior, and (like other Coupe series Chrysler Corp. offered that year) had fixed quarter glass instead of roll-down rear passenger windows.The high-performance models were marketed as'Cudaderiving from the 1969 option. The E-body's engine bay was larger than that of the previous A-body, facilitating the release of Chrysler's 426cuin (7.0L)Hemifor the regular retail market.1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda, raced by the Chrysler France works team in 1970-1973
For 1970 and 1971, the Barracuda and Barracuda Gran Coupe had twosix-cylinder enginesavailable — a new 198cuin (3.2L) version of the slant-6, and the 225 — as well as three different V8s: the 318ci, the 383ci with two-barrel carburetor and single exhaust, and the 383ci with four-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust 330hp (250kW) SAE gross. The Cuda had the 383ci 335hp (250kW) SAE gross (same as Dodge's 383 Magnum) as the standard engine. It also had the 440ci four-barrel Super Commando, the 440ci six-barrel Super Commando Six Pak, and the 426ci Hemi.The 440- and Hemi-equipped cars received upgraded suspension components and structural reinforcements to help transfer the power to the road.
In 1970 the power plant options offered to the customer were:
1. 275hp (200kW) SAE gross in the 340-4V.
2. 335hp (250kW) SAE gross in the high performance 383-4V,
3. 375hp (280kW) SAE gross in the 440-4V,
