CC Global: 2015 Iveco Daily 40C17 And 2018 Brian James Trailers – So Long, Ma Mopar!

After exactly 10 years, I said farewell to my 1969 Plymouth Barracuda. Last Monday, this magnificent combination came to collect it. In Europe, there’s no better trailer tower in the light commercial vehicle segment than the Iveco Daily. You can call it the Fiat Ducato’s/Ram ProMaster’s big brother.

I posted plenty of them over the past years, like this similar one at the weekly market. In short: body-on-frame, rear-wheel drive, dual rear wheels on the heavy-duty van and chassis-cab versions.

Say, there’s plenty of room for the boxes with the Plymouth’s steelies and hub caps. Some nice carpentry too!

Goodbye, lil’ ol’ Plymouth! It was great fun, but I thought it was time for a change. May the next owner enjoy it as much as I did.

The Barracuda’s successor will arrive in a few weeks. I’ll give you some hints: it’s 15 years younger (you really didn’t think I bought a new car, or did you?). Under its hood a fuel injected, DOHC inline-six. Independent front and rear suspension, disc brakes all around. Five-speed manual transmission.

And oh yes, my favorite classic car bodies are coupes, fastbacks and liftbacks. That’s enough, for now.
