For Sale: 1970 Plymouth Cuda in Scottsdale, Arizona


Vehicle Description

Starting in 1966, The Sports Car Club of America introduced the new Trans-Am Racing Series. The idea was for manufacturers to compete with modified versions of production cars on road courses. By 1970, the series had entered into what many regard as the “Golden Era,” with each manufacturer fielding some of their most iconic pony cars. Ford campaigned with the Boss 302, Chevrolet with the Camaro Z/28 and Plymouth fielded the AAR ’Cuda. The name AAR paid homage to the race team that Plymouth hired to run their cars: the All American Racers. Originally founded by racing legend Dan Gurney, both he and Swede Savage drove AAR ’Cudas against big names like Parnelli Jones, Jim Hall and Mark Donohue From the factory, Plymouth equipped the AAR ’Cuda with a 340ci V8, topped with the famous Six Pack carburetor that was previously only an option for the 440 engine. Visually, the cars featured a “strobe stripe” running the full length of the side, capped off with the race team’s logo at the rear of the quarter-panel. All cars also came equipped with a functional fiberglass forced-air induction hood This AAR has been the recipient of a high-level restoration, refinished in its original high-impact Lime Light Green with black interior. It retains its original 340 Six Pack engine, backed by a 4-speed transmission. The car has been inspected by Dave Wise and it’s been documented in the Chrysler Registry. It comes with the original Build Sheet as well as title copies showing the chain of ownership from new.
