The reason why this car exists is primarily because of Trans Am racing series. On the other hand, the 1970 Plymouth Barracuda AAR is one of those cars that pushed muscle car styling over the top. Actually the ’70 Barracuda AAR is among the rarest Mopars ever produced.
The very successful Formula 1, Indianapolis 500, and NASCAR race driver Dan Gurney was the owner of the AAR (All American Racer Team). In ’67 (’68 and ’69) Dan Gurney campaigned a Mercury Cougar, but in 1970 AAR campaigned this (new for 1970) Plymouth Barracuda. This particular 1970 Plymouth Barracuda AAR is all original numbers matching, completely restored to OE specifications.
If the look of this car doesn’t get you, the small-block 340 cubic inch 6-barrel will. This kind of engine is rated at 290 horsepower and 345 pound feet of torque. The transmission is 727 automatic. This car is bad to the bone from any angle, and driving this vehicle on the streets will get you a lot of attention for sure.
