Multiple carburetors with progressive throttle linkage wasn’t anything exclusive to Chrysler muscle cars. Although first generation Hemis all benefited from double carburetors, early GTOs, famous Tri-Power Corvettes and even FE Fords enjoyed the perks of added cfm. But it was Chrysler’s A-12 cars that took triple-carburetion to the next level. The Six-Pack and Six-Barrel cars made waves among muscle car enthusiasts and Ma Mopar knew they had a hit on their hands.

The following year, in a concerted effort to put the auto manufacturer’s new E-Body pony cars front and center of the Trans Am and SCCA racing series, the Challenger T/A and AAR ‘Cuda were born. Equipped with 340 LA small blocks topped with similar “Six-Pack” setups, the track-ready Mopars experienced notable success both on and off the race course. Today, these machines fetch a very high asking price, making these original machines far out of reach of the “common man.”

That’s why Holley’s own Jeremy Stoermer took his once-original Barracuda Grand Coupe and proceeded to build an “AAR tribute.” Much of the ’70 Barracuda impressively wears original AAR parts – all saved from a totaled ’70 AAR ‘Cuda – such as the rear spoiler, fiberglass hood and the powertrain. Running a trio of 2300-series two-barrel Holleys (creating an impressive 1350cfm), the small block is backed by a 727 Torqueflite automatic.

The once-Grand Coupe was also painted in the correct Lemon Twist Yellow and adorned with the appropriate “AAR” strobe stripe. Currently, the E-Body runs a 13.40 in the quarter mile with a max speed of 105mph. Check out the video below showcasing Jeremy and his tribute to one of the most iconic Mopars ever built HERE:
