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 !.
