1970 Road Runner Superbird is Clearly $64,500 Overpriced


It’s unclear why anyone in their right mind would buy this $65,000 426 hemi 440 + 4 speed equipped 1970 Superbird when you could have your own Überbird for “$500”.

Beep Beep!
Beep Beep!

There’s the minor detail of the 3 speed auto Vs 4 speed stick, several liters of displacement, the quality of the paint, the presence of any interior, and some modicum of racing heritage to be addressed, but seriously: do you thin you’d have 130 times the fun with this example?

    I belong in the Detroit Iron for Dummies aisle, but even I know that Hemi+4 speed+Superbird is the ultimate combination. Even with the market's recent plunge, at 65k I was expecting a basket case, considering the record auction price headlines.

    The paint is so ridiculously smooth on this bird. Who are they trying to fool?

      All the astute collectors know to look for the "post-birthday-party-vomit texture" on a paintjob.

    Maybe they will knock 60k off for all of the detailing that has to be done…
    I want a Superbird bad, but this disappoints me.

    Call me a blasphemer if you must…
    but I would prefer a 'Cuda to the Superbird (I didn't say Uberbird, mind you….)

    Not long ago, these were going for 125 grand. Cherry, of course, but I don't care about a trailer queen. Once again, I'd spend my imaginary money on this monster. This is Cool. No doubt about it. I mean, this is testosterone on four wheels. An Italian super car is sexy, but a Superbird is the holy grail of musclecars. A sucker punch as opposed to a caress. Drop the clutch on this beast and you're living.

      Well done, I read that in Matteo McConaughey's voice… L-I-V-I-N

    The engineerd Fair Market Value (eFMV™) WOPR-like computer fried a tube or transistor on this one. This probably isn't a bad price for a true Superbird, and even in economically-challenged times these cars will sell. A little work on cleaning it up and it would really be worth it. I have no point of reference for where a clean example sells, but I'm assuming it's north of $75k.

    I was driving home from college one day and passed one of these going the other way. It is the only one I have ever seen. I was maybe 30 miles east of the Columbia river in the middle of Washington and really near nothing but farmland on a very long straight section of highway 26. It makes me wonder about what other fantastic automobiles are squirreled away in all those barns.

    Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!

    This made me smile and hopefully after your last post it will do the same for you:
    Don’t drink and drive. You might hit a bump and spill your drink. 🙂

      I was just looking at some of the story's and couldn't help but tell of my buddie that in 1990 sold his '67 formula S convertible cuda 4 speed for $1700. He sold that car sight unseen to a women from around Pittsburgh PA. I have tried to research this car but can't find it. From all i'm reading it may be one of a couple ever built and maybe the only one left. He cries every time i remind him of that car.
