Yes, this is a real-deal mighty 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda AAR. That means rarity, power, and Mopar beauty all come together in the most desirable six-pack package around. So take a look at all the details, but don't admire for too long, or this one might be gone.
If you're a Plymouth person, the color is In-Violet; if you're a Dodge person, it's Plum Crazy; and if you're a Mopar fan, you're just excited to see this coupe expertly re-finished in its factory-correct FC7 High Impact color. But a real-deal AAR like this also has something more going for it than just the purple. It's built to be a real race machine in the Trans-Am series, and so the hood is finished in matte black to reduce glare. And because the Mopar guys were always the best at mixing their function with flare, the grille, special spoiler, and unique strobe full length stripe all got the blacked-out treatment, too. These were truly mean machines straight from the factory with the exclusive lightweight fiberglass hood with functional scoop, hood pins, and the exhaust tips poking out just ahead of the rear wheels. And everyone loves the exclusive badging that came on Dan Gurney's All American Racers (AAR). So with this much appeal it's amazing they only produced around 2,724 examples for 1970 it's first and only year in production.
Inside the black vinyl interior nicely coordinates with the exterior accents, and it also is an instant reminder of this 'Cuda's performance spirit. The moment you slip into the high-back bucket seat, you realize just how much the Plymouth people wanted to surround the driver. This is a center console car with the gear selector perfectly molded into the contoured setup. Plus, flanking the sporty three-spoke steering wheel are your controls for heat/defrost and original-style AM radio. In fact, The in the trunk! But you really want this because it's a performance machine. And you're reminded of that the moment you look at Mopar's full round Rallye gauge package with the important tach prominently centered with the steering wheel.
When you open the hood, the most important part of the AAR cars is instantly staring straight back at you. The big, bold orange air topper announces the triple set of dual carburetors that make up the powerful six-pack. And this presentation looks correct right down to the rubber diaphragm that seals this big air intake to the hood scoop. Beneath that is the mighty 340 cubic-inch V8 looking just as bold in the correct orange. In fact, everything looks correct and fresh in the engine bay, right down to the radiator shroud. So you know there was a nice investment under the hood. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, the cleanliness of this one tells you that all the right investments have been made in this special 'Cuda. While you're looking down there, you'll also spot great features like the front disc brakes and sway bars front & rear. Add in the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and BF Goodrich T/As, and you've got a stellar classic that's easy to show off everywhere.
