DESCRIPTION1970 PLYMOUTH ROAD RUNNER HEMI SUPERBIRDExotic Classics is proud to offer this amazing 1970 Plymouth “Superbird” Road Runner, one of ONLY 135 examples made with the famous 426 Hemi engine. Featured in Alpine White with Black vinyl bench seat, special order Black vinyl roof, and stripe-delete. The car is in the Galen’s Registry and comes with a very strong and highly detailed Galen inspection report.Developed specifically for NASCAR racing, the Superbird, a modified Road Runner, was Plymouth's successor to the Charger Daytona that was raced by Dodge in the previous season. The Charger 500 version that started the 1969 season was the first American car to be designed aerodynamically using a wind tunnel and computer analysis, and later was modified into the Daytona version with the unique nose and tail. The Superbird's smoothed-out body and nosecone were further refined from that of the Daytona, and the street version's retractable headlights added nineteen inches to the Road Runner's original length. The rear wing was mounted on tall vertical struts that put it into less disturbed air thus increasing the efficiency of the downdraft that it placed upon the car's rear axle.Our car is one of seventy-seven 426 CI/ 425 HP, 2 x 4-bbl Hemi Superbirds with the 727 Torqueflite automatic transmission. Of these, 28 are known to have survived. The car has been subject to a nut and bolt rotisserie restoration and it has only 31,018 original miles. It has all matching numbers and has not been driven on the road since the restoration was completed. The car features a 3.55:1 rear, power steering, power front disc brakes,Rally dash with 150 MPH speedometer and 8000 RPM tach, and maximum cooling package with correct 26” radiator. The original broadcast sheet, manual, and 26 page inspection report by Galen Govier are included.This is a rare opportunity to own a very special piece of street-legal American NASCAR technology.
