This unassuming 1970 Plymouth Cuda is a magazine featured steel rocket that is just as comfortable commuting back and forth to work as it is making passes at the local drag strip.
Restored by Mascar Autobody and Paint in Costa Mesa California, this killer '70 Cuda is a clean west coast car that retains all of its original body panels save for an AAR style fiberglass hood. Its factory straight body was completely covered in a great looking coat of Plum Crazy Purple basecoat/clearcoat and accented with flat black paint on its hood, header panel and horizontal side panels.
Under the hood you'll find a 340 Race X block that has been bored and stroked to 427 cubic inches and features a nasty 13 to 1 compression ratio and roughly 750 horsepower! Inside the massive black hood scoop a huge Holley Dominator 4 barrel carburetor sends 110 octane racing fuel and cool air from a high performance K&N filter into a modified single plane Indy intake. At the sides of that intake, slick looking oval port Indy aluminum heads have been fitted with Ferrea valves, K-Motion valve springs, T&D rocker arms and welded Moroso aluminum valve covers. Inside the block a Mopar performance crankshaft pushes Eagle rods and CP pistons while a custom ground Comp cam pops Comp solid roller lifters and Smith Brothers pushrods. At the back of the motor, an MSD digital 7AL box with two-step launch control sends fire from a Painless wiring harness to a Mallory Unilite distributor and red MSD ignition wires. At the sides of the block, Hooker long tube headers that measure 3.5 inches at the collectors border a custom oil pan with a center link pass through, and in front of the block a custom aluminum radiator carries both an electric fan and a Seatrab transmission cooler.
Underneath this Cuda you'll find more no compromises hardware and professional grade race equipment. A Pro-Trans built 904 3-speed automatic shifts quickly and efficiently while a turbo-Action trans brake and 5,700 stall Continental converter put a wheel stand inducing bite into the cars launches. Out back there's a stalwart Ford 9 inch rear end with an aluminum center section that carries pavement pounding Strange 4.30 gears and tough Moser 35 spline axles. Holding the engine off the ground is a factory torsion bar front suspension that's been upgraded with adjustable QA1 shocks and Wilwood manual disc brakes, and holding the rear end off the ground is Calvert monoleaf springs that are supplemented by adjustable Rancho 1000 shocks, CalTracs traction bars and two more Wilwood manual disc brakes. There's a custom 16 gallon fuel cell out back which sends fuel through a Barry Grant electronic fuel pump, and the massive Hooker headers flow into a vicious sounding ITT three inch Exhaust system that's complete with welded Dynomax mufflers and square stainless tips. At the corners, proven 15 inch aluminum Weld Pro Stars wear 28x4.5 Moroso DS-2 race only front tires and Mickey Thompson 325/50 ET Street radials in the rear.
The interior of this Cuda maintains all of its stock panels and carries the same 'wolf in sheep's clothing' theme as the exterior. During the build a 10-point chrome-moly roll cage that is NHRA certified to 7.99 seconds was built and installed by Bob Miller at BMP in Prescott, Arizona. Inside that cage, you'll find a stock vinyl rear bench and custom front buckets that have been upholstered with correct black vinyl and equipped with four point Simpson race harnesses. Between the seats, the cars original console sits on like-new black carpet and features a correct locking console, buttons for the cars power windows and a Hurst competition ratchet shifter that fits perfectly inside nice looking factory wood applique. In front of the seats, the cars original dash hangs accurate Autometer gauges and sports a large Autometer tachometer with a built in shift light and RPM memory function, and in front of the driver, a simple black Grant steering wheel is wired with a button that retards the cars timing.
Brutally fast yet completely streetable, this awesome '70 Cuda perfectly embodies the Pro Street philosophy.

132667 / 1970 Plymouth Cuda AAR
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cc5624l
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.
