Used 1970 Plymouth Superbird for sale in Olathe, Kansas
Gateway Classic Cars of Kansas City is proud to present this beautiful one of a kind 1970 Plymouth Superbird. The Superbird was developed specifically for NASCAR racing and to compete with the Daytona Charger that was created the season before. Production numbers of this highly sought after vintage classic are believed to be around 1,920 total built in 1970, which is the minimum amount of cars they needed to produce to compete in the upcoming Nascar season. Though production numbers cannot be verified, online data analysis estimates state that this Superbird is approximately 1/54 automatic V-Code Superbirds ever produced in the highly desirable Alpine White color, and approximately 1/665 produced with the powerful 440 engine with the six barrel carburetor. This Superbird was fully optioned out and looks like it just rolled off of the showroom floor, ready to win the Daytona 500.This one of a kind head turning Superbird is a true V-Code bird, with the 440 and the six pack. The engine and transmission are believed to be original with the vehicle, though the owner has never had them authenticated to be an all numbers matching and original drivetrain. Breaking down the trim tag shows that this bird originally came with the 440 and the six pack and was automatic rolling off of the assembly line. The next trim code also shows that this bird has a Chrysler 8 3/4 rear end with a 3:55:1 gear ratio. The following code shows that it had the special order 26 inch radiator that was found on every Superbird. Next, it shows that this bird has the special order black vinyl top and another code that deletes the transverse sport stripe that would normally run above the taillight panel of a Road Runner. Our next code shows that the console was added from the factory. The succeeding code goes on to show that the Black interior and the bucket seats were the original color and style, and also once again the engine designator code confirms that this bird had the 440 and the six pack equipped from the factory. Lastly we have the VIN which when decoded shows that this vehicle was Mid-Size and the road runner price class, had 2 doors and a hard top, V-Code so it has the 440+6 pack, 70 was the model year, and most importantly that it made at the Lynch Road Plymouth plant where all of the Superbirds were made and had their wings and nose cones attached. To go along with all of this history, this beautiful V-Code bird also has some added comforts included. This bird has Vintage Air installed, which could easily be removed and wired back to factory specifications if desired. It also has a Custom Autosound radio which was also installed in a way in which you could remove if desired as well. It has the dual exhausts so that you can hear that powerful 440 roaring when youre cruising down the highway in a piece of American Automotive history. If that is not enough the wheels are wrapped in BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires so that you can put all of that power to the ground effectively.Some extra features of this monumental piece of automotive history include A/C, AM/FM Radio, Performance tires, Power brakes, and Power steering.
