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.
ForPly -- 1964 Plymouth Belvedere
Unveiled at SEMA Show 2012, this street-legal 1964 Plymouth Belvedere
combines old school American style with modern NASCAR racing technology.

designer and builder. The ForPly will be a featured vehicle at
Barrett-Jackson's Scottsdale auction in January 2013. Net proceeds from
the sale will go to Evernham Family Racing for a Reason, a foundation that
is funding IGNITE, a new program and facility in Davidson, N.C. operated by
the Autism Society of North Carolina.

Listed in Darrell Davis' book of original Max Wedge serial numbers, this
car is one of only fourteen 426/4-speed Belvederes produced for the 1964
model year. If you're looking for a no-nonsense pavement pounder that's
fast, raw and ready to brawl, you've found your next heavyweight!
An extension of legendary designer Elwood Engel's modernist rescue of
Plymouth's increasingly eccentric product line, the firm's newly downsized
B-Body did almost as well on Chrysler's sale charts as it did on America's
drag strips and super speedways. This particular Belvedere, a Stage III Max
Wedge car sold new at Powell Plymouth in Jacksonville, Florida, was likely
ordered by an aspiring racer who whipped a few people on the street and
then settled into a life in the slow lane. Unlike the majority of these
badass Mayflower warriors, which were purchased almost exclusively for
sanctioned drag racing, this car has never had its front inner aprons cut
for Exhaust headers, never had a roll
cage installed, and never had its rear wheel wells tubbed for oversize drag
slicks. In fact, when this Plymouth's true heritage was discovered in the
late 1990s, the car had been mechanically and cosmetically transformed into
an all-steel, 90,000 mile slushbox special. Naturally its enlightened
savior knew he had something special, so he began a frame-off restoration
by welding in new floorpans from a clean donor car and hanging new quarters
from a high quality aftermarket supplier. Next, when a trademark aluminum
front end was finally located, it was re-skinned, thoroughly worked, and
perfectly aligned with its new body. And finally, after much parts research
and even more parts searching, a wet-looking coat of correct Chrysler code
P Ruby Red paint was buried in a thick clearcoat shell that shines like a
trophy on race day!
Gently lift this Plymouth's Ruby Red hood and you'll find an date-correct
Max Wedge V8 that wears an authentic 2406730-1 casting number, a December
(12) 10th (10) of 1963 (03) date stamp, and a 1964 V-series (V) Maximum
Performance (MP) High Compression (HC) 426 cubic inch (426) engine stamp.
Pushing a brutal 12.5 to 1 compression, and currently Dyno-ed at 486 horsepower and 469 lb./ft.
of torque, this Mopar monster has built a hard-fought reputation for being
one of the best competition motors ever created.
That high powered big block churns torque through a tough A833 4-speed
manual transmission to an original, factory-narrowed 8.75 rear end. During
the restoration that transmission, which is a correct piece that's dated
slightly after the car was assembled, received new bearings, new synchros,
a new clutch and pressure plate and a correct cast steel bellhousing. And
that rear end, which rides below original factory frame weights, was fitted
with a new Sure Grip differential and tall 4.10 gears. At the ends of that
stellar drivetrain, an original torsion bar front and leaf spring rear
suspension, which has been completely rebuilt from top to bottom, helps
increase both drivability and track times. At the sides of that stellar
drivetrain, original Max Wedge Exhaust
pipes whisk spent gases to either manual dumps or factory replacement turbo mufflers. And all this first rate
hardware proudly stands on a set of 14 inch body-matched steel wheels which
spin fresh 205/75 Hurst radials and 215/75 Hurst cheater slicks around
pristine stainless center caps.
Take a look inside the car and you'll find a spacious and airy environment
which has enough room to haul the whole family in comfort. Top dead center
is a pair of red bench seats that are lined with new padding, stitched with
NOS covers and accented by bright stainless trim. Below those seats, new
black carpet does an excellent job of highlighting the car's original, and
re-chromed, Hurst shifter. In front of those seats, a two-tone dash hangs a
silver '49 Plymouth-inspired instrument panel next to original radio and
heater deletes. And in front of the driver, a restored steering wheel spins
a red rim around a pristine chrome horn ring.
This aluminum-nosed Belvedere is a super cool piece of muscle car history
that's easy to imagine as the focal point of a sunny 60s track day. Call,

Classic police cars - 1969 LAPD Plymouth Belvedere with 330 HP V8 engine
Computer searchable guns & ammo reference guide and gun schematics library
on DVD for PC and Mac - www.firearmsguide.com
The Plymouth GTX was introduced as the top of the line Belvedere, and
Richard Petty won the Grand National championship in NASCAR in a Belvedere.
The new LA-style lightweight 318 engine was introduced for this year and
would remain available on the Belvedere through its life.
In 1968, the line was restyled with a roofline changed to follow the
Charger, standard flip-out rear quarter windows (that would also be used in
1969), and "Coke bottle styling."
The Belvedere name was dropped at the end of the 1970 model year, replaced
by the Plymouth Satellite name originally reserved for higher-end
Belvederes. The Satellite itself lasted only through 1974; starting in
1975, the car was renamed Plymouth Fury, and the longer-wheelbase Plymouth
Fury became the Gran Fury.
