Plymouth Superbird Redux

by Paul Daniel

A supercar of the 70’s returns with a new look and more power in the 20’s

NASCAR racing was huge and it was a big deal for a manufacture to have their car win. The Superbird, a modified Road Runner, was Plymouth’s follow-on design to the Charger Daytona fielded by Dodge in the previous season. Chrysler didn’t just slap on the aero stuff and get it out the door. It was the first American car to be designed aerodynamically using a wind tunnel and computer analysis. Only 1,935 Superbirds were built. Not only collectible now because of the look but also the ginormous amount of horse power packed under the hood make this highly collectible. A good example will go for well into six figures. See more history here.
