LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1970 Plymouth Superbird.
For just one year, Plymouth produced one of the most storied muscle cars of all time. The short-lived Plymouth Superbird was a highly modified version of the Plymouth Road Runner. This muscle car was designed with one person in mind, NASCAR champion, Richard Petty. A long-time Plymouth driver the Superbird was meant to lure him from Ford back to Chrysler. The Superbird's smoothed-out body and protruding aerodynamic nosecone were race inspired while the street version retractable headlights added nineteen inches to the Road Runner's original length. The high-mounted rear wing was mounted on tall vertical struts that put it into less disturbed air thus increasing the efficiency of the downdraft placed upon the car's rear axle. There was no secret mathematical formula used to determine the exact height of the enormous wing rather simply designed to provide clearance for the trunk lid and by sheer co-incidence, the height of the wing was at the optimum level for maximum downforce. A smaller version of the decal appears on the driver side headlight door. The rear-facing fender scoops were to hide cut outs to allow wheel clearance and lowered height of the vehicle for NASCAR however for standard road going Superbirds, the covers or "air extractors" were a cosmetic look only enhancement. Superbirds had three engine options: 426 Hemi, 440 Super Commando Six Barrel, and the 440 Super Commando with a single 4-barrel carburetor. Transmission options included a 4-Speed Manual and 3 speed automatics. Only 1,920 Superbirds were produced and sold new for $4,298 or about $1,000 more than other muscle cars of the day.
This 1970 Plymouth Superbird is powered by the numbers matching “V” code 440 Six Pack engine and numbers matching 727 Transmission. It is an early production build and has the NASCAR production codes on the Broadcast Sheet, as well as the Trim Tag. It dawns its factory FY1 Lemon Twist Yellow and Black interior that has the rare factory Bucket Seats with Center Console. A copy of the broadcast sheet and several pictures of the numbers are proudly displayed in two photo albums that come with the car along with the Galen Govier documents.
The popularity, and importance of this Superbird to the muscle car world, as well as NASCAR, is virtually unmatched, making this very special Bird one of the most collectible muscle cars in the world.
