Fully balanced and blueprinted at 585HP! and a stunning 575 ft lbs of torque (770 Nm) and a very lightweight engine!

DRIVETRAIN AND SUSPENSION

Special performance front suspension with tubular A/Arms and heavy duty K.Member and adjustable coil over shocks, at the back we also changed the standard leaf springs with base-shocks for a 4 link system with fully adjustable coil over shocks and heavy duty front and rear stabilizers. The car is also equipped with many upgraded chassis details and subframe connectors. The rear axle is an all-new Strange Dana 60 type with all new lim.slip diff and new gears, axles, and bearings. The steering system is upgraded with a performance steering box for better feel and fewer turns to the corner. Just a perfect upgraded steering and suspension system that will handle like a dream.

INTERIOR

General discription

FOR SALE: A UNIQUE CHANCE TO OWN A PRO BUILD DREAM PRO TOURING CUDA!

 

- All new PTTM Hand quality build Cuda project car, currently still in progress! (of course, we can change many details as long as the car is not yet completed, to your personal liking)

- Pictures you see here are sample pictures of how the car can or will look when completed!


General description of the car planning for this project: The car will be built as a tribute to the famous AAR ( All American Racers ) Cuda's that were built and raced by Dan Gurney's race team in the early 70's that raced in the famous Trans-Am series against other factory supported car's like the Chevy Z28 and the Boss Mustang's. These cars are all true legends and icons with a real proven race pedigree. 


In order for Plymouth to homologate their car for Trans Am, Chrysler had to build and sell "street versions" of the AAR. So for 1970, the AAR package, coded A53, came with a bunch of special-purpose parts, including a real Trans Am 340 engine with a unique casting number. But unlike the Boss and Z/28, the production AAR was a much more purpose build car than the Chevy or Ford and it stood out much more also.


The AAR ’Cuda was also by far the most flamboyant, balls-out racer replica you could buy straight from the dealerships. Multiple carbs were standard equipment and also a special suspension system and the first production cars ever with staggered style wheels and many other special components. Only 2700 hundred cars ever left the factory which makes this factory street version of this AAR Cuda's a rare find. If you google AAR Cuda you will find all you would like to know about these rare cars. They were very special indeed and the first ever produced all factory build race car's that you could buy from the factory for street use. The car that we are currently building, however, will get a much better and more modern day suspension and steering and handling system and a much powerful engine and driveline and much better brakes. But Its build with the best parts available and respect for the true AAR muscle car feel and looks. 


The car will also be build to be used on the streets and for cruising, but its also ready to hit the track and be used what's it build for. Pure American style performance! The car we build will also receive a much higher general quality level that the original car's ever had and it will also receive some a high quality and more custom style paint job and details. The car will be hand-built completely new and the original Cuda body is restored inside and out and has many is equipped with special upgrades and tons of special parts.


The body & Chassis: Complete restored body. The first acid dipped and de-rusted inside and out! (no rust or dirt anywhere) And then all the sheet metal was checked and were needed it received all new and factory correct sheet metal and the complete body is as new. All new floors ( trunk and interior) and the chassis was build to lower the body and make room for 335 wide tires and front and rear coil over suspension and has many special features such as AAR Hood with scoop and AAR rear and front spoilers. The car is now ready for coat and paint. We have chosen an all-black paint scheme with flat black AAR stripes and all the trim and bumpers de-chromed and coated flat black as well to give this car a very clean and mean look and stance. But on request, other colors and details are still possible. All will be done in PTTM's own high-quality paint shop.


Interior: The car has its full original style interior with rally dash and power windows! being an original Gran-coupe Cuda the car also has a special overhead console. Also, the car has a console with floor shifter. PTTM will upgrade the interior with many high-quality details, a full gauge Autometer dash and special cloth and seats, but all build with respect for the cars classic original style. More info on the interior on request. The car will also receive many other special interior features, some for additional driver comfort.


Engine and transmission: The engine we have chosen to build for this special car is another correct tribute to the original 340cui engine used in the original AAR. But with way more power and built much stronger and with better more modern components. Its a base 340 V8 but now equipped with a stroker crankshaft and new H.Beam rod's that gives the engine around 426 cui ( another tribute to the Legendary 426 Hemi engines from Chrysler). With special aluminum B1 heads that were specially ported for this engine's, a special oil system and a special grind camshaft gives this also super lightweight engine 565 HP ! and more than 770NM or monster torque.


The exhaust system is also a piece of art with electronically open and closeable cut-outs that come out at the side of the car ( just like the real AAR's) and also a set of exhausts running al the way to the back of the car that produces a more friendly sound for use in the city and around town. But combined with the side exhaust that can be opened and closed electronically from the interior you can choose any engine sound level you chose or want, how great is that! And be sure it will produce an amazing sound, open or closed. 


The transmission we have chosen is a custom build automatic transmission but with manual valve body so it can be hand-shifted at any RPM up and down by the driver without the need of a clutch which is great fun and makes this car handle like a dream. Its also equipped with an overdrive to make the car very usable on the highways and during long drives. The transmission, converter, and driveshaft will all be built to handle this car's power. All in all this Cuda will be very fast and look stunning, but it's also completely ready to be used on the street or track's and can really be enjoyed with no compromises. It is a true one of a kind hand build car!


Rear axle: Brand new Strange performance Dana 60 rear axle with 3.73 gears and lim.slip diff. Complete 4 link suspension kit with coil over shocks and mini tubed for 345 width tires at the rear. The car will also be equipped with 4 wheel slotted and vented disc brakes.


Wheels & Tires:  The car will receive a set of very expensive custom handmade booze alu wheels 12 J ! at the back and 9 J in front and the will hold 335/35/18 inch low profile tires at the rear and 265/40/18 in front for the best possible grip and handling.  A great chance to own a hand build unique pro touring Cuda That can be driven on the streets or it can be taken to the track as well. There will be NO other Cuda or muscle car that will look the same so it's going to be a real one of a kind car! Build by the best in the business. And all that for less than an average standard low optioned Porsche or any other European sportscar!. And this car, once done will eat every European car for breakfast! It's a great opportunity to have your dream Cuda build for a fraction of the normal price it would costs to find a base car and then have all this special and costly work done to it.


PTTM offers this car at a very special price seeing we do all the work in our own shops and we purchased the base car cheap and give that advantage ahead to the new owner. Normal price for a build of this quality would be at least 50k more. We will continue to build the car step by step and depending on where we are at a certain moment you can buy and step into the project and change any details to your personal likings. For more information please feel free to contact us by email or phone, or even better a visit to our shop!. If you want more information or are interested in purchasing the car as is or upgraded with your personal details. And you can actually see what you are getting as the build is still in progress and we have hundreds of pictures of the complete build!

  • Guide: Matching numbers

    In the collector car hobby, most investment-minded buyers are acutely interested in a specific car’s history. One of the main aspects of that history is an original or, as most people state it, numbers-matching drivetrain. At pedaltothemetal muscecars we feature a plethora of original and numbers-matching classics including ‘Cudas, Road Runners, Chevelles, Camaros, Corvettes and Trans Ams. And, if a potential buyer knows how to properly identify and interpret certain manufacturing codes, they can further validate their car’s history, or on request we can provide it.

  • Vehicle claims and descriptions

    Vehicle/product descriptions, representations and claims on or offline are based on what can be seen by the human eye, documentation, previous professional experience, opinion, factory claims, and, or, information passed on to us by previous owners or restorers. It's to the best of our knowledge that everything we advertise has all indications of being that claim. Please inquire as to what documentation we have on the vehicle you are purchasing or feel free to ask any additional questions you might have, But by no means you can accept our answers as facts as the are our interpretation and might not match yours. It is with integrity and honesty that we describe our cars, but they are in fact, up to 50 years old, may have had many previous owners, modifications or alterations that are unknown to the us, so it's not possible to verify everything about every car in detail. Thereby the stated conditions or details of a car can never ever be taken as a fact. As always we welcome personal inspections and or independent appraisers prior to a sale. Incase we speak of "Original" or "Matching numbers" it means that we asume that to be the case, but with old classic cars thats by no means a guarantee. So please feel free to verify that in person or with a third party.

    Pttm goes a step further than almost every other seller(s), as we also do a full inspection of our vehicles prior to having them for sale in our showroom and make repairs improvements if needed so. And when a vehicle/product is sold we give it a full service check before you receive it !
