1970 PLYMOUTH ROAD RUNNER SUPER BIRD - SUPER FOR SURE
Just when you think you've seen it all, along comes another rare possibly
an unrestored car. And here it is..........a seventy Super Bird with low
miles and one of only 1,920 produced. Costing $ 4,298 it contains under
the hood a 440 cid, 4 barrel, 375 horse engine. The huge spoiler mounted
on the rear was Chrysler's attempt to superspeed their stock car racers.
The front had an extended shovel nose and a that tall rear stabilizer /
spoiler. NASCAR required aero specials like this to be nominally available
at the dealer. In '69 Dodge Charger Daytona offered their special and then
Plymouth offered the Super Bird in '70. This Bird attracted Richard Petty
back to Plymouth where he won 5 of 8 big track stock car victories of Super
Birds in 1970. This Bird is just incredible. It's virtually brand new.
Never restored, just stored and maintained. with very low mileage. It's
all original, still after 41 years. Enjoy perusing this jewel. Thanks
very much for viewing this Plymouth Road Runner Super Bird two-door

About the Superbird:
Developed specifically for NASCAR racing, the Superbird, a modified Road
Runner/Belvedere, was Plymouth's follow-on design to the Charger Daytona
fielded by sister company Dodge in the previous season. The Charger 500
version that began the 1969 season was the first American car to be
designed aerodynamically using a wind tunnel and computer analysis, and
later was modified into the Daytona version with nose and tail. The
Superbird's smoothed-out body and nosecone were further refined from that
of the Daytona, and the street version's retractable headlights added
nineteen inches to the Road Runner's original length. The rear spoiler, or
"wing", was mounted on tall vertical struts that put it into less disturbed
air thus increasing the efficiency of the downdraft that it placed upon the
car's rear axle. In street versions, it was designed to provide clearance
for the trunklid to open freely. The rear-facing fender scoops were
incorporated in an effort to ventilate trapped air from the wheel wells in
order to facilitate brake cooling.

In response, NASCAR's homologation requirement demanded that vehicles to be
raced must be available to the general public and sold through dealerships
in specific minimum numbers. For 1970, NASCAR raised the production
requirement from 500 examples to one for every two manufacturer's dealers
in the United States; in the case of Plymouth, that meant having to build
1,920 Superbirds. Due to increasing emissions regulations, combined with
insurance hikes for high performance cars, 1970 was its only production
"Superbird" decals were placed on the outside edges of the spoiler vertical
struts featuring a picture of the Road Runner cartoon character holding a
racing helmet. A smaller version of the decal appears on the driver side
headlight door. Superbirds had three engine options: the 426 Hemi V8
engine, the 440 Super Commando with a single 4-barrel carburetor, or the
440 Super Commando Six Barrel with three two-barrel carburetors. Only 135
models were fitted with the 426 Hemi. As the 440 was less expensive to
produce, the "Street" version of the 426 Hemi engine used in competition
was homologated by producing the minimum number required.
On the street, the nose cone and wing were very distinctive, but the
aerodynamic improvements hardly made a difference there or on the drag
strip. In fact, the 1970 Road Runner was actually quicker in the quarter
mile and standard acceleration tests due to the increased weight of the
Superbird's nose and wing. Only at speeds in excess of 90 mph (140 km/h)
did the modifications show any benefit.
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #57: 1970 Plymouth Superbird 426 Hemi
There is nothing subtle about this week's Muscle Car Of The Week.
This Everything about this 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird helps it
to stand out in a crowd... the brilliant TorRed color, the high rear wing,
the aerodynamic nose, and of course, the growling 426 Hemi V8 under the
hood. However, this very car was chosen by some not-so-brilliant
outlaws to be the getaway car from a Harrah's Casino heist in Reno, Nevada.
Although they might have thought the speed of a NASCAR superspeedway
flyer like this would have helped them escape, they were quickly
apprehended and the car taken from them. Today, the car lives a
much more lawful existence in the Brothers Collection, where it resides in
restored glory safe from wrongdoers. We certainly don't condone unlawful
acts, but we bet the getaway ride was fun!
