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!

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.
