The first Barracuda (SF-4) was launched as V-1, 17 July 1924 by Portsmouth Navy Yard; sponsored by Mrs. Cornelia Wolcott Snyder wife of Captain Snyder, and commissioned 1 October 1924, Lieutenant Commander B. Picking in command.

On 8 November 1927 Squadron 20 left Portsmouth, N. H. for San Diego, arriving 3 December. Between December 1927 and May 1932 V-l served with the Squadron on routine operations with the fleet along the west coast, in the Hawaiian Islands, and in the Caribbean. Her name ~was changed to Barracuda 9 March 1931 and her designation to SS-163, 1 July 1931. In May 1932 she went into Rotating Reserve with Submarine Division 15 at Mare Island. In January 1933 Barracuda was assigned to Submarine Division 12 and, until late in 1936, operated along the west coast and cruised to Pearl Harbor and the Canal Zone with the 'fleet. On 28 October 1936 she left San Diego for the Caribbean where she took part in the Gravimetric SurveyExpedition. On 8 January 1937 Barracuda sailed from St. Thomas, V. I., and arrived at Philadelphia 14 January, where she remained until placed out of commission 14 May 1937.

Barracuda was recommissioned at Portsmouth, N. n. 5 September 1940 and assigned to Submarine Division 9. She sailed from Portsmouth 2 March 1941 to Bermuda; returned in June; and joined Submarine Division 71. She remained in the New England area until sailing from •New London 17 November 1941 to join the Pacific Fleet. She attended to duty in the Pacific Patrol Area until 15 December 1941 when she rejoined the Atlantic Fleet. Between 16 December 1941 and 7 September 1942 Barracuda was attached to Submarine Division 31 and completed six war patrols in the Pacific Ocean, southwest of Panama, without enemy contacts.

Barracuda returned to Coco Solo, C. Z., 7 September 1942 and, following voyage repairs, she proceeded to Philadelphia for overhaul.Following overhaul she was based at New London until February 1945 with Submarine Divisions 13 and 31. She operated on training problems with destroyers, other submarines, and planes in Block Island Sound. Barracuda arrived at Philadelphia Navy Yard 16 February 1945, was decommissioned 3 March 1945; and sold 16 November 1945.

Originally designated V-2, Bass was launched on 27 December 1924 at Portsmouth Navy Yard. She was commissioned on 26 September 1925, with Lieutenant Commander G.A. Rood in command.

Barracuda SF-4 - History

Named V-1 (SF-4) at her launching on 17 July 1924 at the Portsmouth Navy Yard, the future SS-163 Barracuda submarine was commissioned on 1 October 1924. At the time of her commissioning, V-1 was only partly completed, making her first cruise surfaced to test her engines before returning to Portsmouth to complete fitting out.

On 9 March 1931 she was redesignated SS-163 and named Barracuda. She served in the Pacific and Caribbean in the 1930s, before being laid up in Philadelphia on 14 May 1937.

Recommissioned at Portsmouth on 5 September 1940, she was assigned to Submarine Division 9. After a cruise to Bermuda in 1941, she was reassigned to SubDiv 71. Sent to the Pacific in November, she returned to the Atlantic fleet in December, where she remained until sent back to the Pacific in September 1942.

Barracuda made six Pacific war patrols southwest of Panama, without coming into contact with the enemy. In September 1942, she returned to the Atlantic. Following a refit at Philadelphia, she was based in New London for the remainder of the war. She was decommissioned on 3 March 1945 and sold on 16 November 1945.


Ponorky měly dvoutrupou konstrukci. Byly vyzbrojeny jedním 127mm kanónem a ᘞsti 533mm torpຝomety (čtyři na přໝi a dva na zฝi). Mohly naložit až 12 torpຝ. Pohonný systém tvořily dva diesely Sulzer o výkonu 6200 hp a dva elektromotory Sulzer o výkonu 2400 hp. Nejvyšší rychlost na hladině dosahovala 18,7 uzlu a pod hladinou 9 uzlů. Dosah byl 12򠀀 námořnໜh mil při rychlosti 11 uzlů na hladině a 10 námořnໜh mil při rychlosti 8 uzlů pod hladinou. Operační hloubka ponoru byla až 60 metrů. [1]


Roku 1928 byly pᖞzbrojeny novým 76,2mm kanónem. Roku 1940 dostaly výkonnější diesely MAN. Roku 1943 jej nahradily dva 20mm kanóny. [1]

What do they want? Compact sized cars that were affordable (standard 6 cylinder and basic interior) but could be kitted out with a powerful V8 and custom accessories. This is known as the “pony car”.

In the marketplace, the Barracuda was viewed as “obviously” a fastback version of the Valiant, which had a frugal family image. Plymouth had to figure out a way to combat that, so they pitched the Barracuda as a car “for people of all ages and interests”. Meanwhile, the sporty Mustang was marketed with abundant advertising to young professionals and with a youthful image, this proved to be a huge strength for Ford and a weakness for Plymouth.

1964, 1965, & 1966 Plymouth Barracuda Specifications, Options, & Interior

The 1964 to 1966 Barracuda’s physical dimensions:

Barracuda was not without some goodies, however, and even some things the other Pony car couldn’t match. The car had a good helping of quality engines including a 225ci I6 (better than anything in a Gen-1 Mustang) and a really good 273ci V8.

The interior, though less sporty, is considered more comfortable than that of the Mustang and the luggage room beats it hands down. The fastback had proven itself to be more than just a pretty face.


Again, not quite its own beast, the Valiant’s interior still looks comfortable and tidy. Push-button AM/FM radio, 3-speed Torqueflight automatic transmission, wood-grain steering wheel, and some serious trunk space were just some of the options you’d find.

Try to get that 7’ surfboard into the Mustang? Good luck! The Barracuda would fit it with ease. You’d have a pretty impressive cargo space with the seats down and still have a separate trunk for wet items. Again, the competition would’ve been pulling at their neck-line.

1964 to 1966 Plymouth Barracuda Engines

The engine line for the Barracuda was stout as well. Starting with the 170ci I6, the small car would be huffing a bit, but with the 145hp 225ci, the Barracuda would be pretty comfortable to drive. Not that it could keep with anything short of the base Mustang, but it would still get you there in a jiffy.

The final step in the Barracuda engine line would be the 235hp, 273ci V8. This Commando engine would give the car a sub 9-second 0-60 and the boost of performance it needed. It couldn’t, however, compete with the 289ci H/O engine from the Ford boys. Their much lighter pony with some 50 extra horses would be running low-to-mid 15 second quarters and leaving the fish to flop on the freeway. It would be 1967 before the fish had real teeth.

Size (cu. in.) Type Carb. Horsepower (B.H.P.)
170 V8 1 bbl. 115
225 V8 1 bbl. 145
273 V8 2 bbl. 180
273 V8 4 bbl. 235


  • 273ci V8, 4-barrel – 235hp
  • 0 to 60: 8.6 – 9.1 seconds*
  • 0 to ¼mile: 16.4 – 17.5 seconds @ 88-90 mph*

Her keel was laid down at Portsmouth Navy Yard. She was launched as V-1 on 17 July 1924, sponsored by Mrs. Cornelia Wolcott Snyder, wife of Captain Snyder, and commissioned on 1 October 1924 with Lieutenant Commander S. Picking in command.

V-1 had been commissioned for surface running only, to permit an early trial of her engines. She was assigned to Submarine Division 20 and, after cruising along the New England coast, sailed on 14 January 1925 on a surface cruise of the Caribbean Sea, returning in May 1925 for completion. V-1 cruised along the Atlantic coast and in the Caribbean until November 1927.

1967 to 1969 Production Numbers

Sales for the first year almost doubled that of 1966, but the numbers steadily dropped over the next two years – leading to another need for a revised look. The three year-run gen-2 Barracuda almost followed the same production scheme as the 1st generation did, however, with total production exceeding 140,000 units, it was some 25% higher.

1970 would start not only the most famous Barracuda line to date, but also the start of the car’s ultimate demise.
