About this car:
With white Plymouth lettering and a date code correct 440 CI 4-barrel V-8 engine under the hood, this TorRed 1970 Plymouth Superbird is noted as No. 843 in the NASCAR Superbird Registry. The Superbird program allowed for modest optioning, but many were created solely to meet the rules’ volume requirement (one for every two dealerships, or 1,920 cars total), and many therefore did not get a lot of extras. This one came with the standard E86 U-code 440 Super Commando, the D32 column-shift A727 TorqueFlite automatic transmission and the mandated 8.75-inch Sure Grip differential, plus the A13 NASCAR package’s Hemi suspension, power steering, power brakes with front discs and heavy duty cooling. The unique Dodge-based front-end sheet metal was selected to blend the nose cone to the fenders, making it a one-off design for the Plymouth brand.
This car came in TorRed paint, and it has the black vinyl top and a black bench seat interior. The 150 MPH speedometer shows an odometer reading of 53,143 miles, and this car is offered on a Pennsylvania actual-mile title. Optioning here includes the factory AM radio and Tic-Toc-Tach. One place this Superbird stands out is in its extensive amount of documentation. This includes a broadcast sheet, the dealer shipping notice, an original bill of sale, original dealer invoice, original MSRP and the original owner's manual. It rolls on stock Rallye wheels with trim rings, center caps and Goodyear Polyglas F70x14 tires.
The Superbird did its job, with a young Pete Hamilton winning the Daytona 500 and Superbirds taking several other speedway victories that year. NASCAR saw fit to change the rules soon after these cars arrived, leaving the street models as their true legacy. One of the wildest machines to ever come from Detroit, they remain a true tribute to Chrysler’s no-holds-barred “Win on Sunday, sell on Monday” philosophy.
