1970 Plymouth Superbird 440 SIX BARREL 100% numbers matching

This is #112, 1970 Plymouth Superbird 440 SIX PACK. She is 100% original numbers matching drivetrain, aside from the trunk pan- original sheet metal, extensive owner history back to the early 1970's. Although she is one of only 15 factory Vitamin-C cars, she has spent most of her life painted in Petty Blue, sprayed "The Kings" color as a condition of sale by the dealer for its first long-term owner. He recalled not even knowing that street cars were originally produced in the coveted hue. See the photo of the Circa 1972, the car still retains her original California License Plate. Changing hands in fall of 1975, she remaining in California until 1980 when she was brought to the Illinois where she lived the life of an Aero Warrior Club member's car, played with and pampered, changing hands between fellow club members until 2002. The car also has registrations from mid-1970’s in California to the early 2000’s during its life as a member of the Chicagoland Mopar Connection and Aero Warrior Club. Dave Kanofsky was the last Chicago based owner of this car. He and his wife rode in it from their wedding to their reception. They also brought both of their kids home from the hospital when they were born. There is no doubt that this car has been loved and well cared for its entire life. Always known and appreciated for being Petty Blue, she acted as the “tow car” for the IHRA ProMod Superbird, also in Petty Blue, pulling the dragster back to the pits after ¼ mile runs. She as featured twice at Mopar of the Month in 1999 and again in 2001 on the online magazine, 440 Magnum. In 2002, it sold to the same person who bought the IHRA ProMod Superbird, dubbing it the Texas Big Bird. The owner wanted a clean, rust free SIX PACK Petty Blue 'bird as a factory stock companion for the six second dragster, so he reunited the pair. No longer relegated to towing the car back from its drag runs, he sent it to Hemi Tyme Restorations for a complete rotisserie restoration. Although born Vitamin-C, the owner decided to return the car to Petty Blue because that is how the car lived virtually its entire life. By the time the car was completed in May of 2006, the Texas Big Bird has sold to an overseas buyer. So, SYA brokered the car to the current owner shortly thereafter. He has had the vehicle since and it has been stored in climate controlled environment, recently serviced by Apex Auto Sports of Grafton Wisconsin to ensure she is in turn-key road ready condition. She remains in near #1 Concours Driven Condition with only shakedown miles.
