Yes, this is a real-deal mighty 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda AAR with four-on-the-floor. 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.
The trim tag tells us this is wearing its correct Vitamin C High Impact color. But a real-deal AAR like this also has something more going for it than just the vibrant paint. 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 flair, 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 2,724 examples for 1970 - its first and only year in production. And this kind of rarity is exactly why this example was given such a thorough restoration. We're told this happened possibly 25 years ago, but the completeness of this car (especially the undercarriage) makes the work look decades younger. It tells you that this one has been treated as a show car ever since its restoration. The panels are exceptionally crisp, and the details are there, right down to the Goodyear PolyGlas GT tires. You spend extra time and care with a car like this because it truly is rare. Not only is it a real-deal AAR, but less than half were four-speeds (1,120) and less than 100 are currently known to be factory Vitamin C cars. So you may never again find another example that looks this sharp again.
The black vinyl interior nicely coordinates with the exterior accents, and it has a fresh and detailed feeling of a strong investment in quality. 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 iconic pistol-grip shifter nestled within the contoured design. Plus, flanking the sporty three-spoke steering wheel are your controls for heat/defrost and original-style AM/FM radio. 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 in line 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. So while this 340 cubic-inch block is a replacement motor, it will be up to you to tell that secret. In fact, the motor was rebuilt to AAR specs, and so you have a fresher powerhouse that truly runs with gusto. And the numbers-matching four-speed manual transmission gives you complete control over the power and its high-octane soundtrack. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, the cleanliness of this one tells you that all the right investments have been made throughout this special 'Cuda. While you're looking down there, you'll also spot great features like the power front disc brakes and sway bars front & rear. So it's the kind of car you'll love to drive to show and then put a mirror under it when you get there.
This is an ultra-rare and desirable High Impact 'Cuda AAR that has been given all the right investments to keep it looking and running exceptionally. You already know how special this one is, so you also know how quickly you need to move to take it home. Call today!!!
