Lemon Twist Yellow, numbers matching, 340 + 6 barrel
Pistol Grip 4 Speed, 1970 AAR Plymouth Cuda
BS23 JOB 302127 - AAR “All American Racing” was the name of the factory racing team led by Dan Gurney and
co-driver Swede Savage during the 1970 “Trans Am” racing series. These cars were registered as Trans Am
Cuda’s but the name AAR was used because Pontiac already had naming rights from their Trans Am’s, Thus AAR
Cuda, and T/A Challenger!
This car was built on April 10, 1970 - All 2,724 AAR’s were built between Feb 3, and Apr 17, 1970, and is
registered in the National AAR Registery
This is one of about 146 lemon twist 4 speed AAR's in the registry, and not all of those are numbers matching, so
this is a very rare car!
My dad and I purchased this car in 1980 in the Brookville PA area, and finished the restoration in the summer of
1981. All mechanical and body/paint professionally done. Most of what you see was done in 1981, the car sat and
was used on a very limited basis until the summer of 2013, when I had to freshen up the restoration a little with
new ties and shocks and a few minor things that needed updated, and I use it every chance I get when the sun is
I have researched the car and have made every attempt to give an accurate portrayal of the car as it sits today. I
just put new tires on it with the letters turned in, so there might be a few pics with white letters, and a few
pics without white letters. I have the build sheet and documents from the restoration and can document the car has
been in our family for 35 years!
Over the past few summers, I have made several road trips with no problems. Very road worthy and strong, yet still
a very nice restored car that always attracts a crowd.
