This “Winged Warrior” Is a True Survivor

8 months ago Heritage Video

Like the Dodge Charger Daytona, the 1970 Plymouth Superbird was developed specifically for NASCAR but was offered in a street-legal version as well. While the exact number produced is still unknown, there are believed to be about 2,000 that left the factory. While several examples have been restored, and likely several more abandoned, it’s very unusual to find one in original condition and well-kept. Part of the Jennings Wing Car collection, this ’70 Superbird flaunts numbers-matching everything and the same paint that it got from the factory more than 50 years ago – the special-order Corporate Blue inspired by Richard Petty’s racers. The finish combined with the Six Barrel version of the 7.2-liter HEMI® V8 engine under the hood to make this car one of just twenty of its kind. The specialists are calling this 1970 Plymouth Superbird the “single finest unrestored” out there today.
