1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird Emblem Novelty Round Aluminum Sign
Vintage 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird Emblem Novelty Round Sign
The Superbird version of the Road Runner was an effort to dominate NASCAR racing with Chrysler products in 1970. The Plymouth Superbird only saw one season of racing before it was felt the sloped nose and giant rear wing gave the car an unfair advantage. The season-opener was the Daytona 500 which was won by Pete Hamilton driving a Petty Enterprises Plymouth Road Runner Superbird. The Superbird was built atop the same mid-sized Chrysler platform as the Dodge Charger, but the two cars were uniquely different, evident in the bodywork. The Superbird had a nose that was 1-inch longer than the Changer's and had a raised entry angle. The rear wing on the production based cars did little other than turn heads. It was given this height so that is could allow enough room for the trunk lid to open without interference with the wing, as for the NASCAR entries, the angle of the wing and the height were carefully tested for each track to provide optimal performance at speeds. Most of the road-going Superbirds were equipped with plenty of luxury and convenience options, as well as performance equipment. The list includes the 375 horsepower 440 Magnum V8, Torqueflite automatic transmission, performance axle, power steering, power disc brakes, black vinyl roof, and hood hold down pins.
