General discription

NEW and in our showroom now !

This awesome 1970 Plymouth Cuda AAR with its original Trans Am (TA) 340cui Sixpack V8 and TF727 autom.trans and in the stunning color combo of Hemi orange with black details and interior. Real original and very rare car, especially in this color combination and with all vin numbers in place on the car and on its driveline. Something that's very rare these days and makes this car highly collectible and valuable. 

 

With many AAR's on the market today that only have either a date correct only engine and / or transmission ( not factory original to the car), or sometimes only a base 340 instead of the special T/A casted 340 engine, prices on these cars can sometimes look intresting for a buyer, but in fact are a lot less valueable than true numbers match cars ( with same Vin stamps on engine and transmission as the car's Vin code) such as the car we present to you herre. This baby appears to be all original and equipped with its driveline intact with which it left the factory from day 1. So it just doesn't get any better than this and is the best investment in fun and money you can make. 

 

The car is in fantastic and very original and detailed condition and has all the options you would want, from the black bucket seat interior, the floor shifter with console, to close ratio power steering and front disc brakes and more. The body and floors all seem to be factory original pieces and the car is rust free and in very nice overall condition, all chrome, glass, and paint is amazing as well. The car was recently completely restored and the driveline completely rebuilt and all is in as new condition.


The Hemi orange paint looks brand new and is flawless with no scratches or damages and it has a great shine. The same goes for the special blacked-out front hood and black rear taillight panel...just perfect !.


The underside of the car is very clean indeed !, and still carries its factory-style undercoating and all the other components were restored and everything is painted and are correctly detailed. The car also is equipped with the correct styled staggered rally wheels and correct classic style Poly glass firestone tires that make's this car stand out even more.


The fact that this car is still equipped with its original and numbers matching drivetrain and its painted in the factory extra cost option color, Hemi orange paint makes it a fantastic car to own and enjoy. It's also a great investment seeing there are very few of these cars left today


The 1970 Cuda AAR was built as a true performance race car and originally never intended to be driven on the streets. But seeing Chrysler needed the car homologated for the racetracks a limited number of cars were built for street use which was sold throughout the dealership. All in all a really rare car, with real race pedigree heritage as many of the real race cars, features also found their way into the streetcars.The cars were successfully raced in the 70's with well known and famous Dan Gurneys All American Racers team in the trans am series ( hence AAR) together with the Boss Mustangs and Z28 Camaro's and others, This was the time that real street muscle cars were at there peak. 

The AAR Cuda's stood out especially because there purpose build T/A race 340 V8 engine which was totally different than the standard Chrysler 340, it was an all-new block and special T/A heads and equipped with a Sixpack carb set up and intake. 3 - 2 BBL Holley carbs were blasting their fuels into a special intake and in combination with a special camshaft and other features the AAR engine made close to 400 hp, but for public insurance reasons the were noted from the factory as 290 hp engines. With a little tweak and squeak these engines run very, very fast and outran almost any other performance car on the streets. The car was also equipped with special race side exhausts and staggered style rally wheels. The steering and suspension system was also special on these AAR cars and with some small adjustments, any street AAR could be transformed into a full breed race car. Most of the people who ever had the rare chance to drive an AAR state that they are amongst the best driving, handling and steering muscle cars ever. There also really fast and the sixpack V8's love to Rev and are pretty fast !. This car with its well build and balanced engine with a bit bigger cam gives more than enough power.

This AAR we're offering also has many other special and additional options and with its factory race Hemi orange paint, blacked out AAR hood and black stripes and all black interior it makes the car stand out really well. This car is also still equipped with all its original AAR components and the body is completely untouched and original as well and that makes it one of the best and most original AAR's you probably can find.


With AAR's becoming more and rarer, and many were sold already for 150k+. This AAR is a great opportunity and seeing its originality and great overall condition, combined with its all numbers match drivetrain would be one great historical race-pedigree car to have, own and enjoy. The fact that the car is also a very solid investment is a nice extra bonus. Its a great car for show, but also perfect to be driven and enjoyed, its also not over-restored, something some people dislike, but its a very good balance between a show car and a driver. If you ever wanted a real muscle car that stands out in its color combination, its rareness and is fast and fantastic to drive.. and which also comes with great race history and pedigree ... THIS MUST BE YOUR CAR !.

  • Guide: Matching numbers

    In the collector car hobby, most investment-minded buyers are acutely interested in a specific car’s history. One of the main aspects of that history is an original or, as most people state it, numbers-matching drivetrain. At pedaltothemetal muscecars we feature a plethora of original and numbers-matching classics including ‘Cudas, Road Runners, Chevelles, Camaros, Corvettes and Trans Ams. And, if a potential buyer knows how to properly identify and interpret certain manufacturing codes, they can further validate their car’s history, or on request we can provide it.

  • Vehicle claims and descriptions

    Vehicle/product descriptions, representations and claims on or offline are based on what can be seen by the human eye, documentation, previous professional experience, opinion, factory claims, and, or, information passed on to us by previous owners or restorers. It's to the best of our knowledge that everything we advertise has all indications of being that claim. Please inquire as to what documentation we have on the vehicle you are purchasing or feel free to ask any additional questions you might have, But by no means you can accept our answers as facts as the are our interpretation and might not match yours. It is with integrity and honesty that we describe our cars, but they are in fact, up to 50 years old, may have had many previous owners, modifications or alterations that are unknown to the us, so it's not possible to verify everything about every car in detail. Thereby the stated conditions or details of a car can never ever be taken as a fact. As always we welcome personal inspections and or independent appraisers prior to a sale. Incase we speak of "Original" or "Matching numbers" it means that we asume that to be the case, but with old classic cars thats by no means a guarantee. So please feel free to verify that in person or with a third party.

    Pttm goes a step further than almost every other seller(s), as we also do a full inspection of our vehicles prior to having them for sale in our showroom and make repairs improvements if needed so. And when a vehicle/product is sold we give it a full service check before you receive it !
