Consigned to the Mecum Indy sale and will be running on Saturday May 18th! This is an extremely nice ground up restored AAR Cuda! It is powered by a correct non-matching numbers 340 Six Pack T/A motor mated to the correct 4-Speed heavy duty transmission with the factory Pistol Grip shifter. It is painted Moulin Rouge and has the factory blacked out fiberglass hood with hood pins. It has the correct side exit exhaust and AAR shadow side graphics. This AAR Cuda also came with power brakes, light package, high back bucket seats, rear deck lid spoiler, roof drip rail mouldings and a Music Master AM radio. This particular AAR Cuda is in the AAR Registry and was apparently, according to their information, originally an FK5 Burnt Orange car but there is no evidence anywhere on, in or under the car of that color. The trim tag matches the FM3 Moulin Rouge color of the car now but we are selling it as a color change. It is a very beautiful example that has graced our Museum for over a decade. It will make for a fun investment to enjoy right now!
