1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird

Records indicate that only 77 Plymouth Superbirds were built with the mighty 426/425-hp Hemi engine and TorqueFlite automatic transmission. Fewer than 30 are known to exist today.

This genuine R-code 1970 Plymouth Superbird is one of those few, finished in Vitamin C Orange with a black vinyl roof. It also features a rare white-on-black bucket-seat interior with woodgrain-accented console and Rallye instruments. Documented with the broadcast sheet, it is equipped with power steering and power front disc brakes.
