Lot #770 - The Superbird, with its streamlined nose and trademark rear wing, is an instantly recognizable American icon and part of Plymouth's unique Rapid Transit System of the muscle car era. This particular example is documented by its original Broadcast Sheet, authenticating this truly rare car. Painted Tor Red, one of Chrysler's High-Impact colors for 1970, this Superbird is one of approximately 270 finished in this rare shade. After being beautifully restored in this stunning color combination, it was then sent to renowned Mopar specialist Roger Gibson for the final mechanical refurbishment and under-hood detailing. The mechanicals in this car are stout, as it features a 390hp 440 Six Pack (one of 716) and a TorqueFlite 727 automatic transmission (one of 408). On the Rally Gauge equipped dashboard is the famed Tic-Toc-Tach. Also present on the steering wheel is the famous Beep-Beep Road Runner horn. This rare Mopar rolls on Chrysler Rally Wheels wrapped with a set of Goodyear Polyglas tires. The trim tag has been decoded by Mopar historian Galen Govier, and all associated paperwork is included with the vehicle. This car also has the distinction of being in the Chrysler Registry, as well as the official Superbird Registry. Also included is an original Motor Trend magazine from January 1970 that features a cover story on the The Ultimate Road Runner Superbird. Well-preserved over the years, this Superbird is ready for show and go.
