The Plymouth Superbird was built in 1970 to replace the 1969 Dodge Daytona as the dominating car on the NASCAR Super Speedways -- and because The King, Richard Petty, drove for Plymouth and not Dodge.

As a Street Car

Superbirds were available in seven factory colors. Those colors were Limelight Green, Alpine White, Tor Red, Vitamin C Orange, Lemon Twist Yellow, B5 Blue Fire Metallic and Corporation (Petty) Blue.

There are at least two known Superbirds that left the factory in a color other than the seven colors listed above. Those two (and possibly more) Superbirds were painted FK5 Burnt Orange Metallic. One car was last known to be on the east coast in an unknown condition. The other car has always been pretty much a show car and has been featured in many magazines. The last owner of this car that I know of was the central Florida radio disc jockey Mason Dixon but I believe he sold the car some time ago.

Drag Racing

Matt Tolbin of Austin, Texas in the late 90s built a ProMod Superbird and named it the Texas Big Bird. Dave "Old Hippie" Schultz bought it from him in late 2002. While Dave owned the Texas Big Bird -- it had a Indy Cylinder Head 525ci Alky Hemi, Colbelco Blower, Lenco 3-speed, Boninfante clutch and run in the 6.25-6.35 second range -- at about 225-235mph. Dave sold the car in 2004, and the drive train went in one direction while the chassis and body went in another. The full scale car was actually too big and heavy to be competitive in a class where most were 7/8 scale Corvettes and Firebirds. Latest rumor in 2008 is that the chassis/body now races in England.
