From August 29 to September 1, 2013 at Auburn Fall, Auctions America will offer another classic among the cars. It is 1970 Plymouth Superbird. The car is distinctive, with its sloped nose and enormous rear wing that became a stock car racing icon.
This particular Plymouth Superbird was purchased new by the consignor at Altman Kramer Chrysler -Plymouth- Dodge in Huntington, Indiana during late March 1970. The car is well maintained and mileage totals less than 29,000 miles.
The engine is an original from the factory V-Code that is 440-cid with 390 horsepower with three two-barrel carburetors (“Six-Pack”) and is connected to a column-mounted automatic transmission. The seat is uncommonly the bench type, of which few were built in this power / transmission / seat combination.
The Superbird was undercoated from new, has a dealer-installed hood tachometer, Rallye wheels, AM radio and optional chrome exhaust tips. The car’s one owner states that the vehicle has only been in the rain “a few times” in its 43 years and has never been exposed to winter conditions.
