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 highly original Superbird is factory finished in Tor Red complemented with a black interior featuring bench seats. It is powered by its numbers matching four-barrel Super Commando 440-cid V-8 engine backed by a Torqueflite 727 automatic transmission. The famous body features like the high rear wing, pop-up headlights, and Plymouth decals on the rear quarter panels lets you everyone know that is one special Mopar.  This Superbird has had one repaint in its factory correct Tor Red and the interior is a great original.

The Production Broadcast Sheet verifies that this car came from the factory with V19 vinyl roof car, V88 delete of the Transverse Sport Stripe above the taillight panel, EV2 Tor Red, H2X9 Black interior with bench seat, 440 Super Commando with four-barrel carburetor with automatic – all of which features remain on the car today. Other factory options include: dual sideview mirrors with driver’s side remote, Chrysler solid state AM radio, hood tie-downs, factory Rallye Road Wheels, Goodyear Polyglas GT tires; power steering and brakes. The trunk has the original style plaid vinyl floor liner and spare with both jacks.

This original, numbers matching, beautiful 1970 Plymouth Superbird is a great original example of a very historic Mopar. It includes such documentation as 2 original production broadcast sheets and owner’s manual. It is extremely rare to find such a wonderful original piece in such remarkable original condition and fully documented. This is a must have for any Mopar or Superbird enthusiast.
