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.

State Patrol called several tow operators all declined the tow unless
state would supply a diver . The State gave the owner of the car one week
to get the car out of the river . If he did not get it out the state would
hire a recovery company to do it and then bill the owner . I told the owner
if he could get a chain onto the car I would make an attempt to remove it
. This wreck happened 60 miles east of my shop in Wakiakum County . The
owner Greg and his friend Josh did all the rigging I just told them
where to hook the chains . They save a lot of maney by doing all the
dirty work . The owner was excited to find all his cash and coins were
wtill in the trunk of the car . He had oabot $50 in change and cash in a
box locked in the trunk . He went off the wesst side of the bridge with so
much momentum that the car made it within 8 feet of the east bank . before
the sank Greg got out on the roof and jumped to the shore . He only got
his shoes wet . The river is at least 150 feet across . He also was
wearing his seat belt and upon impact the airbags deployed . The damage
to the windshield happened when the car hit the water . Greg is a very
luck man .

1970 Plymouth AAR Cuda 340 Six-Pack Pistol Grip
I thought you'd like a look at this beautifully restored 1970 Plymouth AAR
Cuda. It's powered by the famous 340 Six-pack backed by the four-speed
manual with a pistol grip shifter. This car was originally designed to
battle it out in the Trans Am racing series. They used the lighter 340 for
better weight balance and handling. This particular car is one of only
about 1200 that were fitted with the manual trans, so it's definitely rare.
This is a true, numbers matching car that has been correctly restored. It
comes with the build sheet and all the necessary body tags to prove it's
originality. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for checking it out!

This striking '71 'Cuda pro-tourer, with its 605 cubic inch Hemi V8, fully
custom suspension and sleek leather interior, is perfect for the muscle car
fan who wants the best of absolutely everything!
The beneficiary of a professional, frame-off restoration that was completed
by the owners of Lakeside Rods and Customs in Rockwell City, Iowa, this
slick Plymouth super star features a seamless custom appearance that's
highlighted by an immaculate coat of matte-finish paint. The team's plan
was to create a car that was unlike anything they'd ever built. And this
gnarly pro-tourer, decked in PPG Dark Titanium, detailed in a striking
combination of black, orange and silver, and finished in PPG Flex N' Flat
clear, ended up the perfect cross between a '70s drag car and a modern
When this sinister 'Cuda rumbled into the showroom, it caused such a
commotion that our entire staff came out of their offices just to check it
out. And when we lifted the hood and found a 605 cubic inch Indy Street
Legend Hemi that produces an amazing 850 horsepower and a stunning
790 lb./ft. of torque, we certainly weren't disappointed! At the top of
that Maxx aluminum block, a custom shaker forces wind through a reusable
filter element into a giant King Demon carburetor that's cinched to a
ported intake and fresh stainless fuel lines. At the sides of that intake,
Indy 426 heads, which have been fitted with high quality roller rockers and
clean stainless valves, hang slick orange covers over an Indy-supplied
rotating assembly that includes Wiseco 10.75 to 1 pistons, Eagle H-beam
connecting rods, a Callies 4340 crank, ARP bolts and a Comp roller cam. At
the sides of that rotating assembly, black long-tube headers swirl spent
gases into a rowdy true dual Exhaust
system. At the front of those headers, a familiar Billet Specialties Tru
Trac system spins a chrome Powermaster alternator above a polished Billet
Specialties power steering pump. And the big motor's fires are lit by a
Painless Wiring harness that utilizes an MSD 6AL ignition system to spark
an MSD coil, a color-keyed MSD Pro-Billet distributor and high performance
MSD plug wires.
Behind that high-octane engine, you'll find a TCI-supplied Powerglide
that's wrapped in a Reid Racing case. That stalwart 2-speed spins a custom
driveshaft that's hooked to a Ford nine inch Traction-Lok rear end, tall
3.73 gears and Strange 31-spline axles. As you can probably tell from our
pictures, that rock-solid drivetrain is suspended by a custom Art Morrison
MaxG chassis that's fitted with a Corvette C6 front clip, a Corvette C6
sway bar, a Watt's Link rear clip and Strange coil over shocks. And power
flows to the pavement through a slick set of custom Intro wheels that spin
245/40ZR18 and 335/30ZR20 Pirelli P Zeros around chrome lug nuts and
Inside this stunning Mopar you'll find a completely custom interior that's
tight, technological and in excellent condition. The firm seats,
custom-stitched suede and leather units that are equipped with RCI Camlock
harnesses, feel comfortable enough to spend a sunny afternoon in. In front
of those seats, a custom, Lakeside-built dash hangs a sweet set of Classic
Instruments Velocity gauges above Large Rockford Fosgate speakers and small
Rockford Fosgate tweeters. And the car's driver stays connected to the road
via a painted tilt steering column that's complete with stylized stalks and
a sporty Momo Nero wheel.
In summary, this killer Plymouth pro-tourer represents creative engineering
at its very finest, combining stunning design and execution with
no-excuses, no-limits performance. Call, click or visit
