AAR Cuda Mopar 340 TA Engine block
In 1969-1970 Chrysler made a special 340 engine for the AAR Cuda and the
T/A Challenger. These engines were different than a standard 340 used in
other Mopars. The TA engines had the designation embossed on the block,
driver side. If you're buying a TA 340 also check the heads by removing the
oil cap on the passenger side. With the cap off look inside and the rear
rocker should be offset. You may need a flashlight to see it.
If you scattered the original engine you may have received a standard 340
replacement block. I've heard stories both ways. My buddy back in 1970 went
through 3 warranty transmissions before they said enough.
Some of the later blocks which were left over made their way into 1971 340
Road Runners and other cars. If you're looking at a 340, look closely
because the TA340 are still around.
I hope you enjoy the video and it helps you.

If you look up Vanguard Motor Sales in a thesaurus, one of the first words
you might find is "Mopar". That's because we've spent the few years
bringing Mopar fans the greatest array of exceptional cars ever offered for
sale. This stunning purple Supercharged 1968 Plymouth Barracuda continues
that tradition and presents you, the serious collector, with yet another
chance to expand your collection.
This Cuda went through an extensive restoration in 2007. The solid metal
body is straight, clean and rust free. There is no bondo, no waves and no
ripples. After all that hard work, the car was sprayed with its beautiful
purple metallic paint. The result is a fantastically straight Cuda that
looks like it could have rolled out of Dodge Main yesterday. Panel gaps,
door and trunk lips and margins are exceptional, the doors and trunk open
and close with very little effort and the cars deep purple metallic paint
has little to no defects or wear. All of the chrome and stainless is
equally as nice.
The first thing you will notice under the hood is that Paxton Supercharger, attached to the 340ci motor. The
casting number on the motor is 2780930-340. Turnbuckle ties are holding
this baby down. Once you get past that sweet looking Supercharger, you will see that this Cuda also is
wearing a MSD Ignition, a remote oil filter, breather canister and an
Optima battery. There are coated headers as well. Make no mistake; this car
runs just as well today as it did when it rolled into the dealership in
1970 and it's one of the few muscle cars that can still run with the best
The bottom of the car has been well taken care of as well. Matched up to
that 340 Supercharged motor, is a 4-speed transmission, which shifts
awesome. The casting number for the trans is 99129, and there is another
stamp with # 9B327429. There is a posi-traction rear end, with what we
believe to be 3:50 gears. There are some minor repairs in both driver side
and passenger side rockers and one small patch on the floorboard, all of
which have been done extremely well. There is no rust to be found, the
undercarriage of this Cuda is solid! A new stainless steel gas line and new
gas tank were included in the restoration, as well as a Flowmaster Exhaust system (2.5" out back and 3" feeders).
Cross drilled rotors and front disc brakes keep this Cuda between the
lines. The upper control arms are tubular, there are new spindles and
eurethane bushings on the radius arms. The front fenders have no signs of
repairs, they look to be original metal. Sitting on all four corners are
17" Billet wheels and BF Goodrich G-Force tires.
Inside the car has been completely restored and features beautiful white
upholstery, and headliner. Sitting between the bucket seats is a beautiful
console and Hurst shifter. In front of the driver is a stunning wood Grant
steering wheel and a set of Auto-Meter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite gauges. In the
center of the dash there is a Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo system, which sounds
great, and underneath that is a duo of aftermarket gauges. All of the
interior lights work and the black carpet is in beautiful shape. The
fold-down back seat gives plenty of extra storage for your cooler and
folding chairs. This car is ready for a summer cruise, and the local car
This is a rare, Supercharged 340 Cuda that is 100% complete inside and out.
