    I don't know if this has been covered here before.

    The back story is this.... in the late 80's I was at an estate sale. There was a box of vintage Playboy magazines, so obviously I had to take a look. One issue in particular caught my interest because of a Barracuda in it, so I purchased it for $5. The issue is August 1967 and features Playmate of the Year Lisa Baker, who Wikipedia says is still alive today. After I got home I looked a little closer and found the issue is signed by her in several places. Win/win!

    Back to the car.... a pink '67 Barracuda, and it looks to be a Commando car. Does anybody have any more info on pink Commando Barracudas from 1967? Were these made specifically for Playboy promotionals? How many were made, and are any known to exist today?

          Lisa Baker has a small part in this movie "The Winds of Autumn" (one of many call girls):

          Seen before. Someone pointed out that the pic is inverted. She is actually at the left/drivers door. Changed to suggest shes your passenger.
          I think Sonny and Cher had a pair of pink B'cudas too.

            Lol. Didn't catch that. Yep, look at the Barracuda script on the front fender.

            Fuel door, steering wheel, antenna, lots of clues easily missed.

              I don't see a round Formula S badge on the fender behind the wheel... That tells me that it's not a factory Formula S with a Commando engine...

              67 could be a Commando without being a Formula-S
              I have seen other pictures of the car that show it as a standard V-Eight
