The Big 3 go sporty 1967

Sporting life

Detroit’s Big Three are directing more firepower than ever this year at the market for sporty cars, as shown by introductions this week.

Ford’s entry, the Torino (above), features ventless side windows and a standard 302-cubic-inch V-8.

ChryslerPlymouth offers its Barracuda (center) in three models — sports fastback, convertible, and hardtop coupe.

GM’s Oldsmobile division says its new Cutlass “S” coupe (bottom) may be customized by using any one of twelve engine-transmission combinations. A wood-grain steering wheel and dual exhausts are optional.
