It is a highly-awarded copy with a known ownership history that features the 440 V8 Super Commando Six Barrell motor under the hood, which was good for 390 hp (396 ps/291 kW) back in the day. The 440 Super Commando had 375 hp (380 ps/280 kW), and the most sought-after version of the Plymouth Superbird packed a 426 HEMI V8, making 425 hp (431 ps/317 kW). The latter is usually a million-dollar affair nowadays.
In addition to the car, its future owner will also get the factory invoice, shipping notice, window sticker, warranty punch card, and two broadcast sheets. Its still-fresh looks are directly tied to the mileage, as this vehicle hasn't seen much action over the years. The odometer reads only 5,444 miles (8,761 km), which equals just over 100 miles (160+ km) of driving each year – you know, just enough to keep its value up and make sure that it remains in proper running condition.
As we already told you, this gem of an old-timer is going under the hammer at the Kissimmee auction in Florida. Hosted by Mecum, the event will kick off on January 2 and end on the 14th, comprising some 4,000 vehicles. The auction house does not usually release the estimated selling price of the cars it advertises, and they haven't made an exception for this awesome Plymouth Superbird. Then again, you know these kinds of rides tend to change hands for small fortunes, don't you?
Don't expect it to fetch a seven-digit sum, as that's reserved for the rarer HEMI-powered variant, which is estimated to include only 135 examples. But if you were shopping for your very own 1970 Plymouth Superbird to keep for years to come and polish every other weekend after a short drive in the dry, how much would you be willing to pay for this all-original one? Keep in mind that you are looking at a very low-mileage car, which could make some collectors go berserk on the bidding part.
