1970 Plymouth Barracuda AAR 'CUDAThis fantastic 39,000 original mile, or Red, speed, /S, /B, allye Dash AAR 'Cuda has been in my collection for over ten years.
It unrestored with the exception of one very high quality repaint and engine compartment detailing of a superior quality original car. It does have a (REAL) factory warranty replacement block that was really installed under warranty in 1970- with the paper tag still on the rivet on the side. Blank VIN pad, orrect (warranty) date code, eal TA casting block confirmed by Galen as the real deal. Original numbers matching transmission and 3.91:1 rear. Of course it also has all of its original factory fender tags and VIN tag as well. Everything on the engine is original, arburetors (just concours restored by Custom Rebuilt Carbs of NJ), ir cleaner, istributor, xhaust manifolds, tc. Original sheetmetal, nterior, ven original factory installed exhaust (with replacement Chrysler 1975 dated mufflers installed in 1977) still in place. Original (not reproduction) tires. All original glass with the exception of the windshield which is a old (period) PPG replacement.
Runs, rives, ooks and sounds as new. Featured on the cover of (and road tested in) Automobile Magazine's July 2006 issue (the two artsy photos posted here are from that article.) Featured on MuscleCar TV May 2007 with yours truly driving for the "MuscleCar Flashback" segment.

Again, ther than the repaint and maintenance items the car is an incredibly original 39,000 mile car that feels like it should, omething that can never be duplicated with a catalog full of Chinese parts hung around the rusty remains of an original AAR 'Cuda VIN. I think you can see how good this car is in the video witnessed by me throwing it around on a road course. I have the original books, ncluding the warranty book, ut have not torn the car apart to locate the Broadcast sheet. I would be happy to make any deal contingent upon Galen Govier verifying the car at my expense once a deposit was in place. He did a visual inspection on the car for me in 2005 or 2006 but I realize a decade has passed and a fresh report would make a potential buyer feel that much better.
As for who I am my name is Colin Comer and I am the author of numerous books on muscle and collector cars including "Million Dollar Muscle Cars" and "The All American Muscle Car." I am also Editor at Large for numerous well-known car magazines. I have a very well-known collection of my own and, gain, have a long (10+ year) history with this fantastic AAR and assure you it will not disappoint. I am simply selling it because I am starting to "tighten up" my collection to a more manageable number and this AAR deserves to be somewhere it will be exercised regularly and shown off more than I have the time to these days. It is certainly not your average AAR- even if there is such a thing! Its color combo, ptions, nd integrity are the reason I love it so much and expect you will as well.
I am happy to answer questions from serious buyers, rovide additional photos and discuss the car at length. It is also available for any type of inspection you desire in Milwaukee, isconsin with an appointment any time during this listing. I have a well-lit shop with a hoist available as well as a full service shop on site ready to assist. Please note I am not looking for any trades. I reserve the right to pull the AAR from the market at any time or to sell it elsewhere without notice. I'm sure there is lots of other mumbo-jumbo I could put here but I'll skip the scary boilerplate BS stuff because it isn't needed here.
Thank you for your interest in my AAR.
