1970 Plymouth 'Cuda AAR Apparel and Accessories by Legend Lines
In 1970, the dramatically restyled Barracuda and its high-performance brother, known simply as the 'Cuda, would become some of the most desirable muscle machines ever built. With a long list of options and an incredible color pallet, the 'Cuda demanded not only attention, but respect. The E-body platform became shorter, lower and wider and quickly distinguished themselves from their GM and Ford rivals. The redesign was done, in part, to make room under the bonnet for Chrysler's Raise Block engines, both the 440 ci and the 426 ci Hemi with its huge cross-flow cylinder heads. The Barracuda was available in convertible and hardtop configuration; the fastback was no longer offered. Several versions would be offered, with one of the hottest being the AAR, named for Dan Gurney's All American Racers. 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. Nevertheless all 1970 – 1971 ‘Cuda are great collectors and pretty as ever... Man, they are means!
