Classic Car Overview

Yes, its real and documented. Yes, its numbers-matching. Yes, received an accurate rotisserie restoration. Yes, we are just as excited about this one as you are. Yes, that is 9,000 documented original miles. A real-deal 1970 Plymouth Superbird, in arguably the best color around, is an opportunity you may never see again. For the few that dont understand its significance, just know that the Superbird is a one-year only special edition that was literally a racecar sold to the public. Plymouth improved on its sibling, the Dodge Charger Daytona, to build an aerodynamic car that would dominate NASCAR. While the long front end and tall spoiler seemed like track-only pieces, NASCAR rules meant that Plymouth would need to build at least 1920 examples for the road (total was around 1935 with far fewer survivors today.) This racecar history and rarity is why this example was given such a thorough rotisserie restoration in 2002. The sheetmetal is amazingly straight, and the distinct pointed nose is attached better than even the specialty fit was from Plymouth. The Lemon Twist is the ideal color, because it comes from the High Impact catalog. This glossy presentation is contrasted nicely with the black vinyl roof, Plymouth side graphics, and blackout details on the front end. In fact, this whole special coupe has been nicely detailed with hood pins, Rallye wheels, and the correct Road Runner reflective graphics on the hallmark rear wing. As you look through the documentation, youll see they kept an eye on resorting this one to proper original standards, and that makes sense considering this is quite special with a low 9,080 miles on the odometer. While the Road Runners were budget-friendly Plymouths, the Superbirds were in a rare class all their own. So its great to have a high-spec interior direct from the factory. And just like the exterior, this has been restored for a show-worthy presentation. The deep black coordinates with the exterior accents and has the look of quality. Bucket seats, a center console, and an AM/FM radio are true 1960s premium pieces. And the power windows are a factory-correct feature that makes this Superbird as rare as 1 of 3 ever! Theres the Road Runner cartoon emblem in the center of the correct wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel, but you know this is no kids show. Because beyond that is the full gauge panel with the tach/clock combo next to the large speedo. Every time you open the hood, your heart will beat a little faster. The bright block of the 440 cubic-inch Super Commando motor is the only thing brighter than the lemony yellow in this amazingly clean engine bay. The monster motor looks like it belonged here since day one, because it has. This numbers-matching V8 has been well looked after over the years to keep it both a great runner and highly original. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, the big block fires up with the kind of roar that reminds you this is a racecar you can hang a license plate on. And as you follow the path of the pipes in the undercarriage photos, you can really see the level of detail in a proper rotisserie restoration. The A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic is original to the car, and its the beefy kind of unit that can handle NASCAR-worthy power. Add in power steering and power brakes w/discs up front, and its easy to handle this wild rare bird. This is a numbers-matching, highly documented Superbird comes with the original window sticker, dealer invoice, a partial factory buildsheet, title docs, restoration photos, and Galen Govier documentation. So while the legend is that the Superbirds were created to lure Richard Petty back to Plymouth, we dont have to tell you anymore to lure you into our showroom. The only problem will be if youre not quick enough to grab this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Call today!!!
