Classic Car Overview

1970 PLYMOUTH BARRACUDA AAR for sale. Motorcar Classics is proud to present this 1970 Plymouth AAR Cuda featured in Top Banana/Lemon Twist with black interior. He car is powered by the AAR 340CI/290HP V8 with triple 2-Barrel carburetors back by the optional automatic transmission. The car is one of 2,724 built of which 1,604 were ordered with the automatic. This car is in superb conditon in all respects and fully documented with factory build sheet and photos of components showing date code correct matching numbers. It is truly an investment-grade piece of American muscle car history. In 1970, Plymouth entered SCCA Trans-Am racing, contracting with Dan Gurneys 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 was special for that purpose, and 2,724 were built, all during a five-week period between March and April 1970.The street-version AAR had a 340cid V-8 topped by three 2-bbl Holley carburetors. The engine was underrated at 290 horsepower at 5,000 rpm. In addition to cylinder heads that were unique to this engine, the block had thicker main webs along with a forged crank and rods. Other special features included an aluminum intake manifold, larger brakes and a rear deck spoiler. A 4-speed manual transmission was standard, a HD 727 Torque Flight was optional. The car was equipped with a 3.55:1 rear axle ratio combined with Sure-Grip, and a 3.91:1 ratio as an option. The AAR suspension included special front and rear sway bars and heavy-duty shock absorbers. Heavy-duty rear leaf springs raised the rear end of the car to make room for the side-exiting exhaust and provided room for Goodyear G60X15 tires at the rear and E60X15 in the front, making the AAR Cuda the first American modern-day production vehicle to come with different-sized tires front to rear.A special textured flat-black finish was applied to the grille, hood, tops of the fenders and upper door edges and tail panel. The hood, proprietary to the AAR, was lightweight fiberglass, had a functional air scoop and contained hood pins holding it closed at the front. Despite lighter-weight hood springs, the hoods typically bowed within weeks of delivery. The exterior had a distinctive strobe stripe graphic running the length of the car ending at the rear with the red, white and blue AAR crest. The stripe itself comprises 75 individual segments of decreasing width. The AAR was priced at $3,966. (Historical information courtesy of Hagerty).This stunning AAR Cuda will be a valuable addition to either MoPar collectors, or to collectors of the unique and special muscle cars offered by all three American manufacturers in the golden age of unfettered high performance cars. This is one to show with pride.
