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.
