1970 Plymouth Superbird Hemi Coupe

This is a very rare, very original 426-cid/425-hp Hemi Superbird, one of only 74 Torqueflite Hemi Superbirds built. A Chrysler/Plymouth dealer used this car to increase showroom traffic, and to participate in parades and local Mopar events.

This vehicle has just over 9,600 miles on it, and the spare has never been on the ground. The car has been recently inspected by Mopar expert Galen Govier and his report is available. Documentation also includes the original broadcast sheet and owner’s manual.

The car has minimal factory options and is equipped with a black bench seat, a column shifter for the Torqueflite and a Dana 4.10 locking differential. It has been stored in an environmentally controlled warehouse for the last quarter century, never offered for sale, and has been displayed only once. It is offered here at No Reserve.

SCM Senior Auction Analyst

Brian wrote his first auction report for Old Cars Weekly in 1990 and has contributed his colorful commentary in Sports Car Market since 1998. His work appears regularly in Kelley Blue Book, and also in a handful of marque-specific publications. Carlson shuns what he calls “single-marque tunnel vision” and takes great pride in his “vehicular diversity.” He attends about two dozen auctions per year, but he broke away to roar around Oregon with Paul Hardiman in SCM’s Dodge Viper and Porsche 911 Turbo in the 2015 Northwest Passage.
