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.
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.

WHAT'S TO COME AND INTERACTING WITH OTHER FANS!
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!
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!
Good Bye Granny I Love You!
My beloved 1970 Sport Satellite sedan "Granny." Born as a six cylinder car
I transformed her (with help from Vic Milano and Stewart Logan) into a fire
breathing 440 "sleeper" car. She was nicknamed "Grandmere Demers" as a
tribute to Charles Demers' beautful '70 Six Pack Roadrunnner and she even
spent two years as a Six Pack car herself. Bought her from Tom Connors in
late 1994 with 133,000 miles showing, she leaves with 187,177. God bless
you "Granny" I'll always love you and ALWAYS miss you! MAY YOU LIVE
