    Once Upon a Time during the Muscle Car Market Peak in the year 2006 my Dad owned this 1970 AAR Cuda. He shipped it in from Jersey (New Jersey). Spent a lot for it and enjoyed it for the 11 months time being but he had to sell it because he had too much invested into it. Good fun clean car ! His first Cuda and my first experience with a Cuda. AAR sold to a gentleman in Maui. Been there since. All Matching Numbers, 4 Speed, Console Delete, Double Elastomeric Bumpers, Non Rally Dash, Rally Red Hardtop, Fender Tag & Broadcast Sheet. 64,000 original miles. He’d always take me and two of my brothers. Every car ride home, .38 Special and RUSH playing, they’d fall asleep in the back, it never failed. I’d like to get a 70 AAR one day if not, a well done 70 AAR Clone. It’s also why I love FE5 Rally Red too lol. #1970Cuda #70Cuda #EBODYMOPAR #2006 #AARCuda #AllAmericanRacers #3406Barrel #340SixBarrel #340SixPack #FE5RallyRed #RallyRed #4SpeedManual #MOPARMONDAY #2006 #WhenIwas13 #NumbersMatchingCar

    In 1967 “Pony Cars” accounted for 13% of the new car market in the United States - an unprecedented (at that time) growth in a specialty segment only four years old. Plymouth was fortunate to get in early with the original Barracuda and #Dodge dealers clamored for their own version. Instead got the Charger - a larger car in both its first and second generations.
-
When it came time to refresh the Barracuda for 1970, Dodge would at last get a Pony car - but the new car would be a shorter version of the B-body Charger/Coronet, that way it could house the very largest and heaviest V8s. That made the Challenger and ‘Cuda the very potent, but it also made them much larger and heavier than the outgoing A-body Barracuda and much of their competition, much of which had also bulked up since 1964.
-
Still, everything about the Carl Cameron-styled Challenger screamed #musclecar.  It offered 18 wild colors, a huge array of engine choices right up to the Street Hemi, different axles, whatever you wanted to spec. The best Challenger, arguably, was the #ChallengerTA with it’s breathed-on 340 V8, free-breathing exhaust, and other mods. The 340 was Dodge’s “small block” option, which is less storied than the king-kong Street Hemi; but its lighter weight made the T/A, named for its connection to SCCA #TransAm racing (like the similar AAR ‘Cuda) nearly as quick as the Hemi and a much better handler.
-
Rated at 290hp, the “Six Pack” 340, with it’s triple carb setup, was actually appreciably more powerful than the regular 340. To stop, they also had standard front disc brakes - often a rarely ticked option on big muscle cars but one which makes them much more tractable. They were not subtle cars, decked out in those bold colors and stripes and sporting fiberglass hoods with massive air scoops.
-
The T/A and the AAR ‘Cuda were both homologation specials and as such, their retail sales were somewhat limited - just 2,400 T/As were built and the package was only offered in #1970 - this is a trubute '72, not an original. The Challenger itself came too late for the peak of pony cars and big muscle - which was losing favor to personal/luxury cars and insurance and emissions issues.

    It’s wild that you could’ve went into a @dodgeofficial dealership and ordered a loaded 1970 Challenger RT/SE in Panther Pink with a Magenta longitudinal stripe. Imagine doing that with a Hellcat nowadays 😂
