Lady Luck was on our side last week as the Legendary Team made its way to
the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea, Michigan.
An all night drive through a snow storm saw us pull into the proving
grounds parking lot at the crack of dawn. It was cold and overcast but no
sign of rain or snow. It looked like the weather would cooperate, the next
hurdle was having MOPAR engineers check out the Cuda. The car passed with
flying colors, testament to the sweat and dedication put in by everyone at
Legendary over the last year.
Then it was off to the black lake for some real world handling tests in
preparation for the 4.75 mile oval and a crack a breaking the 200 mph mark.
Both the Cuda and the Enzo look impressive on the track but once the sun
began to come out late that morning the setting was perfect for our high
speed run. I think we captured some spectacular footage of a once in a life
After a brief mishap, when the Cuda lost its windshield trim at 190 mph,
Peter was ready to go. We could hear the Cuda coming long before we could
see her, as the cars went by they sounded like jet fighters. Top speed 208
mph with still some leftwe did it!

132667 / 1970 Plymouth Cuda AAR

As one of only 1,614 automatic 'Cuda AARs ever produced, this freshly
restored small block Mopar is the ideal car for any enthusiast who wants to
win trophies at the show AND look good hauling them home.
Chrysler code FC7 In Violet Metallic is by far the most appealing hue to
come out of Chryslers hip 1970s 'brighter is better' muscle car mindset;
and when executed correctly it is one of the most timeless and dynamic
colors to ever adorn classic Detroit metal. Expertly applied over a fully
restored 'Cuda body which includes brand new floorpans and high quality
reproduction quarters, this cars straight and flat In Violet paint
absolutely glows under its trademark black organisol horizontal panels. The
result is a durable, modern finish which creates a high energy visual
masterpiece that oozes the bare knuckle confidence and old school appeal
which made this Mopar the stuff of legends.
Pull the pins on the flat black fiberglass hood and you'll find a date
correct 340 cubic inch Mopar Trans Am block. Although SCCA Trans Am race
cars were limited to 302 cubic inches, Plymouth decided that the 340 was a
better fit for its street car, and the extra cubic inches generally made
the AARs faster than their Mustang and Camaro competition. Specifically
designed for high performance applications, the beefed up 340 utilizes
three 2 barrel carburetors, a dual plane aluminum intake, a dual points
ignition system, unique high flow cylinder heads, a bigger cylinder bore
with domed pistons, a more aggressive camshaft and a forged steel
crankshaft to create a hefty 10.5 to 1 compression ratio. Due to SCCA
regulations and increasing insurance costs, the motor's output was
understated to 290 horsepower on paper, but in
reality it creates somewhere north of 315 fire breathing horses and easily
disposes of most stop light challengers even today. Whatever the number,
the engine bay of this particular AAR is in brilliant show-ready condition,
with immaculate detailing and exact finishes throughout. The cars awesome
purple paint provides an electrifying contrast against the 340s fresh coat
of Hemi Orange and the massive correctly decaled Six Pack air cleaner looks
great peeking through the cars functional black hood.
The high-winding small block churns power through a tough A727 TorqueFlite
3-speed automatic that was professionally rebuilt and equipped with a new
torque converter just last year. Included with the Trans-Am package is
power steering and a few minor suspension modifications to help the car
hook up quicker and perform better. An 8.75 inch Sure Grip rear axle with
3.55 gears is held up by specially tuned shocks and re-cambered rear
springs which also lift the rear of the car roughly two inches to
accommodate the unique side-exit Exhaust system. Braking is handled by a factory
equipped power front discs and heavy duty 11 inch rear drums, and the car
proudly stands on a new set of 15 inch Rallye wheels featuring what is
generally regarded as the first application of staggered tire sizes with
new 225/60 front and 255/60 rear BF Goodrich T/A radials.
Inside, the cars well-executed, fully restored black vinyl interior is
simple, functional and showroom fresh. The driver and passenger high-back
bucket and rear bench seats are showroom fresh and show no signs of any
wear at all. Below the seats, new black carpet is protected by heavy duty
rubber 'Cuda mats, and above the seats a taut and wrinkle-free headliner
stretches from door to door and window to window. On the doors, new molded
panels proudly hold the 'Cuda name amid subtle stainless trim, and both the
pistol-grip shifter and optional wood grain steering wheel perfectly match
the cars full console and slick Rallye gauge pod. In front of the driver,
rebuilt gauges have all been fully re-faced to better than new status, and
an original Chrysler AM radio still lives in the center of the dash.
With their unique execution and super rare status, Chrysler E-bodies are
extremely hot sellers. The 'Cuda AAR might be the most collectable small
block Mopar of all time. Great performance, unmatched exclusivity and
classic good looks are exactly the combination that creates lasting value.
