    Is it this commercial? Hard to tell, there is only the side view of the car.

      Having seen the commercial it looks more like a Plymouth Barracuda to me.

        It looks like a '64-'66 Barracuda to me. The rear glass and reverse curve of the rear windows give it away...lifted from the Avanti?

          ...and the vent window pivots are in the wrong place for a K. Definitely Cuda.

            As soon as I saw the window profile, I thought early Barracuda also.

              My first thought was 64-66 Barracuda but the back glass didn't look big enough. My second car was going to be a 66 Barracuda when I went to the lot to look at it it was sold so I got a 66 Lemans instead.

                The first time I saw this ad I caught it mid-stream and also thought it might be a Studebaker. The next time I caught the whole thing and then changed my mind thinking now it is a Barracuda as others have said here.

                  I owned a '65 Barracuda and it had an enormous rear window. That son of a gun would cook whoever rode in the back seat. This car is not a Barracuda, of it it is, it has been modified. My initial reaction was 'Cuda. Definitely not a Studebaker

                    It's later that a 65 with the huge back window. Chrysler offered different models in the U.S. than Canada. Grills, and tail light treatments were different. That's a Cuda, but later than 66.

                      Probably a '68. Looks right.

                        After looking at the ad and stopping at the side view, I realized that the car does not exactly match any of the Barracuda fastback pictures I have. The rear window is too big for the early Valiant hardtops and too small for a Barracuda. The other features look right, but I intend to do some searching for the correct profile.

                        After spending some time looking at pictures of early Barracudas and other cars, I still don't have a firm answer. The car looks much like a 64 Barracuda except for the back glass. The interior shot looks right and I even found a picture with that steering wheel. I wonder if the car has been modified at the back glass or if the car is a foreign car that uses a lot of the Barracuda styling. ???

                          I agree with 52-fan. It is neither a Studebaker or a Barracuda. I have seen this car before but cannot remember what it is. It is a foreign (European) make.
