Stellantis revives model name from dead car brand

The world's fourth largest car group has applied to have the model name "Cuda" from the dead car brand Plymouth protected.

It was actually called the Plymouth Barracuda, but was simply called "Cuda" by fans. Since then, the car as well as the name have gained cult status.

And now there are indications that Stellantis, which is a merger of several car groups, is drawing on its history.

In any case, the American-European group has applied to have the name 'Cuda' registered – and thus protected – with the American patent and trademark authorities.

That's what Motorauthority writes.

According to the media, Stellantis writes in the application that the name must be used for 'cars – more specifically concept cars'.

And while it's far from a convincing hint that neither the Plymouth nor the Barracuda model will be resurrected, it could point to Stellantis somehow intending to revive the old muscle car.

The Plymouth Barracuda was in production for 10 years between 1964 and 1974, when the brand was owned by the Chrysler Group. Most people probably remember the last – and third generation – of the model.

Particularly famous was and is the 'Hemi' version with a 7-litre V8 engine. The absolute first car in that series was looking for a new owner last year. Read more about it here .
