In 1964, Ford introduced the Mustang, leaving the competition in the dust. With some creative shuffling, Plymouth took their similarly sized Valiant, added a curved rear window and some sporty trim, and created the Barracuda. Although it didn't enjoy the same success, it did plant the seed for things to come.

By 1970, the Pony Car wars were at fever pitch, and every major U.S. auto manufacturer offered their own version of the Pony Car. Dodge introduced the all-new Challenger, and Plymouth responded with a similar-sized long hood, short deck version of the Barracuda.

Several versions would be offered, with one of the hottest being the AAR, named for Dan Gurney's All American Racers. The hot Trans Am racing series had garnered significant attention and as the saying goes: Race on Sunday, sell on Monday! The AAR 'Cuda was a single-year offering with many unique features. Among them is the triple-carburetor 340 cubic-inch engine, a fiberglass scooped hood, side-exit exhaust, and staggered size raised white letter tires.

This particular AAR 'Cuda was purchased new by Ozzie Olson of the Olsonite Corporation in Detroit. Olsonite is recognized as one of America's great Indy Car sponsors and also the sponsor of Dan Gurney and the AAC 'Cuda Trans Am team. After surviving a major fire at Olsonite World Headquarters and passing through several owners, it has been restored to its original glory exactly as it was when owned and driven by Ozzie Olson.
