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.

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!

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!

1969 Dodge Charger Daytona Wipeout
Step back in time a quarter of a century to the 1982 Chrysler Car Club
Convention held at the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea, Michigan.
Check out a F6 Spring Green 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona as it loses control
on one of the smaller banked curves at the Proving Grounds. There was a
happy ending though as the car merely spun out down on to the lower apron
of the banking.
