Some would argue that the late-60s and early-70s Trans-Am racing was the best America ever offered, and the result was awesome cars like this 1970 Plymouth AAR ‘Cuda. Designed to combat the Mustang Boss 302 and Camaro Z/28 it emphasizes high-winding small block power and razor-sharp handling over brute force, and it totally works. This numbers-matching AAR ‘Cuda benefits from an extremely high-quality restoration, which is only appropriate as it’s among the most highly prized pieces of Mopar muscle. Refinished in its original Lemon Twist yellow, it’s a high-impact E-body that looks like none of its other siblings. The blacked-out hood features a bespoke scoop and the strobe stripes along its flanks terminate in the AAR logo of Dan Gurney’s All American Racers, from which the car draws its name. You’ll also note side exhaust peeking out from under the car just ahead of the rear wheels, a critical part of the AAR ‘Cuda look. This one also features a rear spoiler and a set of driving lights up front, completing the highly aggressive look. It was repainted just a few months ago by noted pro Darrell Wilson and the paint is absolutely show-quality in every possible way. Awesome gaps, super smooth sheetmetal, and crisp decals make it look showroom fresh. Actually, no 1970 Chrysler product ever looked this good and this one is truly remarkable.
