Vehicle Description

Ladies and Gentlemen and fans everywhere of the high-banked superspeedways of NASCAR, Gateway Classic Cars in Kansas City is proud, pleased, giddy, amazed, awestruck, speechless, ok, you get the point, to offer an automobile that most humans have never seen in the daylight or even heard about, a perfectly splendid 1970 Plymouth Superbird! Possibly the wildest US car ever: to climb the NASCAR podium the Plymouth Road Runner received a metal fabricated prosthetic nose and rear wing with a capital 'W'. Thus was born the Superbird. Even for a period in the time-line of the American auto industry famed for crazy engineering, designs and colors, there's one that surpasses them all: the Superbird. After two consecutive Motorsport titles for Ford in 1968 and 1969, Chrysler needed to fight back and headed in a radical direction: the engineers took a new car into a wind tunnel and started testing a spoiler that ended up 58 centimeters above the body. It would have produced the same downforce from half that height, but would have made access to the trunk impossible. After all, the car needed to remain practical everyday transport. The Superbird won 38 races in a 48 race Grand National Series. Our better-than-new, Lemon Twist Yellow, speed machine is a pristine sight to behold from tip of nose to top of tail! This blinding yellow blur of a bird on a racetrack has recently undergone a Nut and Bolt Rotisserie Restoration and only has completed 50 road miles since completion. Everything has been either stripped bare and repainted, repaired to better than new, replaced, restored or redone. The beautiful black interior features new bench seat, door panels, and restored dash. The powerplant in this Roadrunner on steroids features a Super Commando 440 backed by a 727 Torqueflite Automatic Transmission. Everything is showroom new and fresh except for the fact that the paint, materials and skilled labor used in this restoration are far superior then what the factories offered-up back in the day. From gleaming chrome and trim to a perfect black vinyl top, to vibrant Roadrunner Cartoon graphics, the fit and finish tell the tale of extreme quality. And, don't forget the classic Beep...Beep...Beep Roadrunner Horn! So, if your automotive taste requires something rare, fantastic and super, once again, your pals at Gateway Classic Cars of Kansas City have come through! However, this Superbird will not sit still forever. It wasn't built to. Call us today to get the low-down on this high-flyer.
