Production models languished on salesroom floors due in part to NASCAR having increased the homologation requirement from 500 units to 2000. These cars were highly specialized, seen as being in excess in proportion to the hottest street cars of the period. Fast-forward to today, Superbirds are highly collectible and are the star attractions at car shows and auctions, pulling top dollar and generating real excitement. What a difference a few decades makes!

Whether you are an owner, potential buyer, restorer, or enthusiast of this era, this book will provide you with startling new insight on the 1970 Plymouth Superbird.

Use this resource to examine the 1970 Plymouth Superbird from nose cone to rear wing, review the factory options, and relive its glory days with Richard Petty and Pete Hamilton behind the wheel.

"Petty signs with Ford!" Those four words tore through the racing world like a hot knife through butter while loyalists threw their hands up in disbelief. King Richard's defection was in part because Plymouth hadn't built a Dodge Daytona counterpart for the NASCAR circuit, in addition to the fact that Petty Enterprises wanted to be the sole racing parts distributor for Plymouth at the time. Plymouth weathered the backlash publicly while privately scurrying to create a car to lure Richard back to Plymouth. That car? The 1970 Plymouth Superbird.
