1970 Plymouth Superbird at the 2010 Mopar Nationals. This is the actual
car that won the Daytona 500. This was confirmed by the mechanics that
built the car back in 1970. When they finished restoring the car they
fired it up and the engine wasn't running right so Richard Petty himself
took his screwdriver and tuned the carb and got it running perfect!
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
Wind Tunnel Test: "43" 1971 Petty Superbird
Gary & Pam Beineke built this race version G-Series Superbird-stable mate
to the K&K Daytona-a next generation, 'what-if' tribute to Petty and the
'71 NASCAR season that never was.
They took the car to Mooresville NC "Race City USA" to test in the A2 Wind
Tunnel. Although a full scale version was never built in 1971 Chrysler
performed wind tunnel development on a 3/8 scale model until NASCAR made a
rule change for the 71 season that would ban the wing cars from
competition. Gary Romberg is the technical director at AeroDyn & A2, and
also one of the original aerodynamicists that worked on the wing cars back
when they were developed at Chrysler. Notes and data from the 3/8 model
were donated to the Wing Warriors Car Club and the Beineke's built their
car based off data results from those wind tunnel tests in the 70's.
Romberg was on hand to see a project he worked on over 40 years ago get
built into a full scale version.

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.
