1970 Plymouth Superbird

1970 Superbird

 

The 1970 Plymouth Superbird took the same aerodynamic and styling cues from his Dodge twin, the Charger Daytona in 1970. The Superbird was built upon a Road Runner body style and was adapted to receive the nose, fender scoops, and spoiler. The purpose of the Superbird was to qualify Plymouth for Nascar racing with a new and more competitive vehicle.

On the outside the vehicle has the same bullet styled nose found on the Charger Daytona as well as a more swept back rear wing. All superbird’s also came with a vinyl roof. Name markings were limited to the side of the wing and a small decal on the nose cone.

Under the car you received heavy duty suspension and choice of the Torqueflight or unbreakable hurst shifted four speed. Available was the 440, 440 six pack, or the 426 Hemi. For those who chose the four speed they received the Dana 60 Track Pak rear end. All Superbirds rode on Rallye rims.
