For Sale at Auction: 1970 Plymouth Cuda in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

One of 2,724 total AAR 'Cudas built. Rotisserie-restored with test miles only. This AAR is powered by its matching-numbers 340/290hp Six-Barrel V8 engine paired to a 4-speed close-ratio manual transmission and 3.55 Sure-Grip rear end. Finished as per factory in Hi-Impact Lemon Twist Yellow with a white bucket seat interior. The 1970 Plymouth AAR 'Cuda was not your typical muscle car. It was designed with modest-engine racers in mind, built to compete on twisting road courses - what Plymouth built was a street rod. In 1970, Plymouth entered SCCA Trans-Am racing, contracting with Dan Gurney's All-American Racers (AAR) to build and campaign cars to be driven by him and Swede Savage. At that time, SCCA homologation requirements dictated that a manufacturer build a minimum of 2,500 street versions in order to compete. The single-production-year AAR 'Cuda met the homologation requirements with 2,724 cars built, all during a five-week period between March and April 1970. The AAR 'Cuda was different from the regular 'Cuda in many ways. The AAR had a unique stripe called a strobe stripe, which held the AAR 'Cuda logo. The hood is made of lightweight fiberglass. What really set this hood apart from all other cars is the hood scoop, functional and drawing in fresh air. For spoilers, it had front "eyebrow" spoilers and a rear "duck tail." Unlike a standard 'Cuda, the AAR's exhaust came out the sides near the back wheels. All AARs had a 340ci 6-barrel V8 engine, offering lots of power. The 340ci engine could accelerate the 'Cuda from 0-60 miles per hour in 5.8 seconds, 0-100 miles per hour in 14.4 seconds, and race a quarter-mile in 14.4 seconds at 100 miles per hour. This AAR Cuda has undertaken a high-quality rotisserie restoration thousands of dollars invested and is outstanding in every aspect. Includes restoration receipts and two albums of restoration pictures.
