Remembering the Mod Top," Plymouth's Floral Top Car Design

Mod Top vehicle owned by collector Dave Goodwin

I remember years ago attending the Kruse International car show/auction in Auburn, Indiana and for the first time looking at a 1969 Barracuda Mod Top automobile that was on display. I knew at that moment that this car would forever be a part of our automotive history and culture. In 1969, the flower power psychedelic period which many people still have many fond memories off was prevalent in many aspects of the 1960s culture. Also at that time you were probably listening to the great sounds of the American folk singing trio Peter Paul and Mary singing Leaving on a Jet Plane. Perhaps you were even enjoying the sounds of the great Jimi Hendrix.
