I really like the 67-69 Barracudas. But I don't know how to tell them apart. Can yall help me out?

Ok then, so the body lines down the profile are the same between the three years? I was somehow under the impression that they were not.

Style wise the only difference in sheet metal is the hood and grill header panel.

Body lines are the same. Cosmetics changed. Hood and nose as stated. Door locks on 69 moved forward. Reverse lights are another major difference. Also it’s either 68 and early 69 or late 68 and 69 that’ll have black plastic exterior door pushes.

yeah, for all intents and purposes the same. like mentioned header panels/grilles and minor trim changes between the years. biggest difference is probably the 69 hood and header "beak"

67 had Plymouth had separate letters across the front header panel...

68 & 69 had a Plymouth badge above the left grill opening...

67's didn't have side markers, 68's had round ones and 69's had rectangular ones.
That's the quickest way from a distance to determine the years unless body work has been performed to eliminate or add the side markers. The other way is the vin.

The wife’s ‘67 has no letters, don’t know why, got it that way. Not filled in anywhere.
