V8 Cuda Series Hardtop Coupe
Chassis #: BS23J0B292416
Sold for $57,750 at 2009 Sports & Classics of Monterey.
In 1970, 2,724 examples of the Plymouth 'Cuda AAR were sold. The 'Cuda AAR package included a six-barrel, 340 cubic-inch small block V8 that was vastly underrated at 290 horsepower, with either a four-speed or an optional TorqueFlite transmission, front disc brakes, 15 X 7-inch steel wheels, high-rate springs, heavy-duty shock absorbers and anti-sway bars. Outside, the bodywork included a flat black fiberglass hood with a functional hood scoop, a blacked-out grille, a flat black rear deck spoiler and full-length strobe stripes ending with the unique AAR logo.

This example has been given a rotisserie restoration to original specifications. It was built on April 2, 1970 at Chrysler's Hamtramck Assembly Plant. It left the factory with a close-ratio four-speed manual transmission with a Hurst 'Pistol Grip' shifter and an 8 ¾-inch Sure Grip rear end with a 3.55:1 ring and pinion.

In 2009, this Plymouth 'Cuda AAR was offered for sale at the Sports & Classics of Monterey auction in Monterey, California presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $60,000-$80,000. The lot was sold for the sum of $57,750 including buyer's premium.
