Joel Highsmith's 194mph Superbird "Grizz"
VIDEO PRODUCED BY Gearhead Flicks
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 Superbird Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the very unique 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird.
According to the original window sticker, this Superbird originally sold
for $4,794.62 back in 1970.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

A highly exclusive aero car that features an original 440/4-speed
powertrain, this Plymouth Superbird wears original sheetmetal under a
correct white on black color combination. And if you're shopping for a bad
to the bone investment that's fun to look at, a blast to drive and ready to
hit the show circuit, it's the classic of your dreams!
The slick coupe's high quality, frame-off restoration began with a full
array of original, rust-free sheetmetal. Take one look down that slab-sided
metal and you'll see straight and clean panels that are finessed far past
anything from Lynch Road assembly. Pull those panels into the sunlight and
their correct Alpine White two-stage accurately reproduces Chrysler's
crisp, planar lines. Step up close to those lines and you'll find even gaps
that are devoid of any sloppy patches or second-rate finishing work. And,
ultimately, it all boils down to one very impressive pavement pounder that
inspires comments and elicits stares every time it hits the road!
Hoist the long hood and you'll find an original, 440 cubic inch Super
Commando V8 that's authenticated by a 2536430 casting number, a February
(2) 28th (28) of 1969 (69) casting date and a matching 179782 partial VIN.
At the top of that 375 horsepower monster, a big,
4-barrel carburetor rides within a beefy, Organisol-coated air cleaner. At
the base of that carburetor, a correct Chrysler intake hangs between
correct heads and traditional, stamped steel valve covers. At the front of
those valve covers, a reliable points distributor shoots spark through
Chrysler Electronic Suppression wires. And at the sides of that
distributor, fully restored Exhaust
manifolds funnel spent gases into great sounding, true-dual tail pipes.
Behind that mill, an original A833 4-speed, which wears a matching 179782
partial VIN, provides solid, poignant shifts. That tough transmission sends
power to a correct Dana 60 rear end, which spins a proven Sure Grip
differential around correct, 3.54 gears. At the front of the car,
Chrysler's beefy Hemi suspension utilizes an A12 sway bar and standard
power steering to make quick work of big bumps and tight curves. At the
back of the car, that same Hemi suspension hangs correctly staggered
springs at the sides of a leak-free stainless fuel tank. Stops come
courtesy of standard power front disc and rear drum brakes. And all this
Mopar goodness rolls on prerequisite Rallye wheels, which twist 255/60R15
Cooper Cobra radials around subdued center caps and bright stainless rings.
Inside this famous Plymouth, a factory-correct interior is clean,
well-optioned and surprisingly stylish. Seating, an ultra-rare all-bench
set up, displays no significant signs of wear. In front of those benches, a
straight, crack-free dash hangs original factory gauges beside a familiar
Chrysler Solid State. At the bottom of that dash, well-maintained carpet
centers a Hurst Pistol Grip shifter between rubber Road Runner floor mats.
And in front of the driver, a monochromatic steering wheel spins a silver
horn ring around a cool Road Runner centerpiece.
A poster child for the golden era of Detroit, the Plymouth Superbird stands
head and shoulders above nearly every classic in terms of looks,
exclusivity and performance. Few cars are as popular as they are
polarizing, and that simply adds to its cache. With a smooth,
numbers-matching powertrain, all-original sheetmetal and enough visual
flash to stand out in a mirror factory, this awesome coupe is about as
close to the ultimate muscle car as you can get!
