Description
Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is very proud to offer this Hemi Orange 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda AAR for sale. This numbers-matching beast is reputedly in the hands of its fourth owner, who has had it for 20 years. It was restored by its then second owner back in 1995 and has only been occasionally driven since then. The 'Cuda AAR was a one year only car for Plymouth, back in 1970. Originally built to assist Plymouth in their efforts to meet homologation requirements for SCCA Trans-Am racing .....
series, the production AAR cars were designed to look just like the AAR racing cars campaigned by the All American Racers auto racing team that Dan Gurney and Carroll Shelby founded in 1964. The 'Cuda AAR Trans-Am cars were piloted primarily by Swede Savage and Dan Gurney during the 1970 season. They captured 3 poles and managed a runner up finish. With a production total of around 2724 units, these 'Cudas are not easy to find these days. The 'Cuda AAR cars all came standard with a 340 CID V8, topped by 3 two-barrel carbs, a special fiberglass hood (with functional scoop), special "eyebrow" front spoilers, a special "Duck Wing" rear spoiler, and side-exit exhaust; all of which were unique to the 'Cuda AAR variants. For SCCA Trans-Am racing, the 340 was de-stroked to 305 cubic inches to meet the 5.0-liter restriction imposed by the SCCA. The 340 "six barrel" was rated at 290 HP and 335 LB-FT of torque, but most pundits believe those figures were underrated vs. actual output. This 'Cuda AAR was restored in its original Hemi Orange exterior color and is complete with all of the exterior features that are common to the 'Cuda AAR family. In addition to the AAR-specific power train, it has Power Brakes and Power Steering, and the staggered wheel/tire combination with its Rallye Wheels wrapped in P235/60R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/A radials up front and P255/60R15's out back. Inside it has a nicely preserved black interior, complete with high-back woven vinyl bucket seats up front and woven vinyl bench in back, Rallye Instrument Cluster Package, "Pistol Grip" Hurst shifter, AM radio, seat belts, and black carpet. This 'Cuda AAR also has a rear window defroster, which is a rare option. It also recently was updated mechanically, with a complete rebuild and re-sync of the carburetors, new starter, new water pump, new electronic ignition distributor, and new spark plugs and wires; so she's ready to hit the road for those cruises to the car shows. Don't let this rare beast slip through your fingers!
