'70 Plymouth HEMI Superbird, Concours Restored, Tor-Red, White Interior

Plymouth Superbirds are the rare Winged Warriors, living legends of Mopar dominance in NASCAR racing. But the rarest of the rare are the Hemi Superbirds. Of the 1,935 Superbirds produced for homologation by the factory, only 135 were equipped with 426 Hemi engines in 1970. A fair number of them may have low miles, but very few have a the story behind it as this one from Alexander City, Alabama. The 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird you see pictured here is a 13,000-mile example purchased new in January, 1971 out of Potsdam, New York and driven extensively. But, for some reason, the owner did not keep up the payments. It was repossessed in May of 1971, repurchased by another Potsdam resident who drove it over the next few decades much more sparingly. When the Wellborn Musclecar Museum found the car, it was completely unrestored, original paint in good condition and surprisingly rust free. Most automatic Superbirds were ordered as bare bone, granny shifted cars with "taxicab" bench seats. By comparison this was a comparatively highly optioned car with bucket seats, center console and floor shift. The EV2 Tor Red paint is contrasted nicely by the white interior. Only one item did not sit right with Wellborn was the thing that 'lead' an otherwise presentable car to be completely restored. As was the fashion back in the day, the steel nose cone was leaded into the fenders, to emulate the seamless look of their NASCAR brethren. Looking back, perhaps we would have left it alone. That said, you have sitting before a low mile, concours rotisserie restored HEMI Superbird that retains all its original sheet metal, original drivetrain, documented by an original build sheet.
