1970 Plymouth AAR ‘Cuda
The 1970 model year was the pinnacle year for classic muscle cars. Never has there been so many muscle cars and memorable machines. The pony car wars were at full swing with the new Firebird, Camaro, Dodge Challenger and Plymouth Barracuda. But one of the most interesting 1970 Barracudas was the rare AAR ‘Cuda. The AAR ‘Cuda was a limited production model to commemorate Dan Gurney’s All American Racing team.
They used ‘Cudas in the Trans Am championship. The AAR version came with a 340 V8 small block engine and a special plastic hood in matte black paint with a scoop. Also, the ‘Cuda had a rear spoiler and side graphics with the big AAR logo. But this version was more expensive than the regular 340 ‘Cuda, so that is why they only made 2,724 of them.
