Barracuda Plymouth AAR Cuda, for sale in Solon, Ohio, price on application.
If you re looking for a definitive restoration with a ten page visual vehicle inspection from expert Dave Wise of ICCA stating it s a freshly restored #1 car, give us a call. I t simply doesn t get better than this: A numbers matching, rust free, all factory sheetmetal, documented, four speed AAR built on an original paint survivor car. Shown throughout this summer it took best of show at every show entered. This IS the nicest AAR, anywhere, for any money.
If you re looking for verification this car was as nice as we say it was, we have four cd s worth of pictures showing detail after detail on this car. The fenders, the decklid, the floors, the framerails…all immaculate. The upper body was sanded down to bare metal while the chassis was blasted clean. Every part which could come off was tagged, cleaned and refinished as original. Obviously, weatherstripping and other soft trim was replaced, but you ll find an unreal amount of original parts on this car. Nearly every part on the car was personally inspected by Dave Wise, and he graded all of them. His final tally was a grade of 1.5, which is halfway between an excellently restored car and a perfect trailer queen. That sounds impressive, but when he viewed it the car wasn't even finished! Each part is graded individually from fasteners to component assemblies: If you wanted to take the car to the very top level you ll know exactly what needs attention.
Pull the hood pins and gently lift on the hood to show the immaculately detailed engine compartment. There are the correct hoses and spark plug wires, the air filter s correct, the motor s the right shade of orange and the compartment itself is gorgeous. Cool little details are everywhere, from the original, restored, dimpled and date coded voltage regulator to the restored original air cleaner and original carburetors. The underside of the hood is matte black (non textured) as original and the restored wiper motor and other plated parts sparkle. What else would you expect from a concours car?

We put this guy on the lift and were blown away all over again. This is a concours restored car, and not an O. E. certified car. What s the difference? Concours cars have protective finishes on everything to preserve the car forever, while O. E. guys spend their lives wiping down unprotected parts with light oil or celebrating surface rust. While there s nothing wrong with pursuing assembly line perfection, you ll have none of that with this car. It will be as gorgeous in 20 years as it is right now, and that s impressive. The floor pans were painted in correctly-colored gray dip primer from Dave Patik, with correctly applied color coat overspray. The suspension is detailed to level 11. Rallye wheels hold the correct E60-15 front and G60-15 rear tires as the AAR and T/A models were the first production cars in the world to have staggered tire sizes. Also present is the top level suspension with Hemi-spec torsion bars and leaf springs, and front and rear sway bars, and all of it is impeccably done.
Lifting the correct mat reveals a trunk pan you could eat off of. Plenty of cash was spent replating the taillight housings, the trunk latch and the jack post, too, but when you go this far, go all out!
New seats and foams take center stage in the sanitary interior, accented on the floor by the always-cool Hurst pistol grip shifter. A mint dash pad covers the perfect, restored gauges, the steering wheel and column are perfect and everything from the carpet to the headliner isn t just new--it s installed perfectly. Far and away the most interesting detail in the interior can t be seen without disassembling the back half: An assembly line worker at the Hamtramck plant would occasionally sign his nickname, Rock, on the high performance cars. I ve only seen two others like this, and you can be sure the original white lettering is still on the wheelwell!
In the trunk you'll find a new trunk mat, perfect paint, replated taillight and side marker light housings and an original, mint, never-on-the-ground collapsible spare tire. This is a TRUE BFGoodrich tire on a correct, date-coded rim, with a matching inflator bottle and bracket. The cost of that setup was $4000--that's no laughing matter.
One of 42 known in Sassy Grass Green, the color is as uncommon as it is beautiful, accounting for a mere 4% of known cars. I love the color on AARs because it works so well with the blacked out treatments. The paint is a solid 10 out of 10, but the Organisol blows it away. Shiny, perfect paint is hard to achieve, but that textured stuff is nearly impossible to get right, and it s the nicest I ve ever seen! Obviously perfect chrome and stainless compliment the outstanding finish from the AAR-specific grille to the taillight bezels.
If you re into Mopars, you d have to agree this is arguably the nicest AAR on the planet, in a cool, rare color to boot. Whether you re a Mopar guy, a ‘Cuda guy, a collector of rare cars or a Trans Am series enthusiast this will be the crown jewel of your collection!
