For Sale at Auction: 1970 Plymouth Superbird in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This winged warrior was sold new at Al Davenport Plymouth of Portsmouth, VA, but in 1971 was traded back in. It was then purchased by another Virginia resident, who kept the car for 41 years before letting it go to the third owner, who commissioned the car to a 1.5-year "stripped to bare metal" restoration. The restoration process included the installation of stainless fuel and brake lines, stainless gas tank straps and polished stainless exhaust. Multiple photos of the restoration were taken and compiled into a hardcover coffee-table book documenting the restoration. The car is powered by the original matching-numbers 440ci 4-barrel V8 engine mated to the original matching-numbers A727 TorqueFlite automatic transmission. Power is then transferred to the original 8.75-inch heavy-duty rear axle. Not only do the powertrain numbers match, but all body numbers match as well. Included with the sale of this car is the original Broadcast Sheet, the Bill of Sale from the Plymouth dealership in 1971, a report from Galen Govier decoding the Tender tag and the aforementioned coffee-table book. One unique feature about the car being offered here is the fact that it is signed by the one and only Richard Petty himself. Very authentic and very nicely documented, this is believed to be one of the most highly optioned winged cars in existence and, not surprisingly, is a Best of Show award-winner. **TITLE IN TRANSIT**
