We are ending this week with this legendary and very rare 1970 Plymouth AAR Cuda which comes from Tennessee, a country with a very long and highly raised tradition for American muscle cars. Back in the days, the AAR ‘Cudas were factory-built race cars and were used in the legendary Trans-Am racing series, along with the Camaro Z/28, Firebird Trans Am, Mustang Boss 302, and the Challenger T/A 340.
The current owner dreamed about this 1970 Plymouth AAR Cuda since childhood. In 2013 he made that dream a reality by purchasing a 340 6 pack, 4 Speed Cuda from Florida. He towed it home to Tennessee where he worked on it every weekend for 5 years. With help from his father, this AAR ‘Cuda became a true masterpiece, a wet dream for every Mopar enthusiast.
The 70 ‘Cuda AAR (All American Racers) is the street version of the original race car concept. It is factory equipped with a Chrysler 340 cubic inch, 5.6-liter Six Pack LA small-block V8 engine, rated at 290 horsepower and 345-pound feet of torque. Behind the engine it has a 4-speed pistol-grip manual transmission, spinning 3.91:1 rear gears. As a finish, it has Mopar 15-inch Rally wheels wrapped with Goodyear Polyglas GT tires.
