Barn finds don’t get much better than this; a 1970 Plymouth Superbird, 440 six barrel, 4 speed! Find more info at Cars In Barns.
This factory Hemi Superbird spent its early life at the drag strip and was once powered by a 426 built by Sox and Martin. Later it received a 440 and its current custom paint job. The hunt is on for it’s numbers matching Hemi. Find more info at Hemmings.
Still a headturner after 44 years. More pics after the jump!
First of all: THIS CAR IS NOT FOR SALE. Now: you are looking at a one owner 1970 Plymouth Superbird in near perfect condition with just one repaint. It was purchased off the dealer lot in South Carolina in December, 1970 for $2,500 after sitting for over a year (the original sticker on this car was $4,537). Original paperwork plus the post from Moparts after the jump!
It’s been too long since we had a good pic for our WTF category. Well, this one is pretty good…
This was posted recently on forbbodiesonly.com. Apparently it was the Superbird owner/driver’s fault–a low speed head on while making a left turn. Luckily the owner is ok and it definitely looks fixable. Still, not good…
I saw this car at SEMA back in 2008. It was built by Year One and Gillette Evernham Motorsports in conjunction with Bill Goldberg and then sold at Barrett-Jackson to benefit the Darrell Gwynn Foundation, which works to help cure spinal cord injuries. The car started life as a 1970 Plymouth Satellite but then it got the full NASCAR Superbird treatment. Power comes from a 800 hp NASCAR-spec 358cid Dodge engine. The price is set at $250,000. More pics plus the eBay auction text after the jump!
King brought Mopars to a whole new generation. Gotta love it. Video clip after the jump!
