1970 Plymouth Road Runner Resto Mod
OHV V-8 engine, three-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, torsion bar independent front suspension, live rear axle with semi-elliptical leaf springs, and disc-front, drum rear power hydraulic brakes. Taking advantage of the Daytona experience, engineers worked from the Road Runner, itself a no-nonsense performance version of the Satellite.
Further refining the nose cone and wing from the Charger Daytona, they were able to achieve greater efficiency. Three engine options were available: a Hemi, a Super Commando with a single four-barrel, and a Super Commando Six Barrel with three carburetors.
For Plymouth that meant 1, cars, and best estimates put the total production at 1, cars, all built in The specific objective of the Superbird was to lure Richard Petty back to Plymouth. Larger engines were penalized by carrying more weight, which quickly deflated the whole aero effort.
2019 Plymouth Road Runner factory built, 1 of 2.
The cars quickly became orphans, and even the street versions were difficult to sell because of the extreme styling. Some were even converted back to Road Runners to make them more saleable.
In recent years, however, soaring prices for original Superbirds has begotten a cottage industry in conversion kits for Road Runners and Satellites. Formerly in the prestigious collection of John Staluppi in Florida, this genuine Super Commando Superbird has been verified with matching numbers. During a recent restoration, numbers on the engine, transmission, core support, trunk rail, title, and original fender tag were verified.
The drivetrain is original to the car, including alternator, starter, and distributor. Every mechanical element was rebuilt, including the steering box.
The rear quarters and trunk floor were replaced during the restoration, but all other sheet metal is original. The nose cone and wing are the originals from the car; they are not reproductions. The front seats have been repaired, but otherwise the interior is original. The car is equipped with power steering, power brakes, windshield washers, and an AM radio with working eight-track player.
I would say the one of the fuel tank level sensors has died. We pulled the tanks off ourselves to inspect them and the pickup on the sendor unit in the rear tank was blocked, we replaced both fuel filters as well and put it back together and the problem went away Took it to Toyota and it ended up being that the jet fuel pump in the main tank needed to be replaced.
From memory I think they replaced the whole sendor unit as well.
It is painted in Hemi Orange, with black vinyl interior and carpet, all in exceptional condition. The body work and paint are excellent, and the engine compartment is correctly detailed. A rare example of a rare car with exceptional provenance, it signals its arrival aptly.
