However, choose the even rarer HEMI-powered variant, and you could end up paying around one million dollars for it. After all, only 135 cars are estimated to have come to life with the 426 HEMI V8 engine, which was good for 425 hp (431 ps/317 kW) and 490 pound-feet (664 Nm) of torque back then. The 440 Super Commando Six Barrell had 390 hp (396 ps/291 kW) on tap, and the 440 Super Commando enjoyed 375 hp (380 ps/280 kW).
The one pictured in the gallery above is in the latter configuration and features an automatic transmission, likely with three forward gears, which was offered alongside the four-speed manual in 1970 when the Plymouth Superbird saw the light of day. It features the typical Looney Tunes cartoon-inspired graphics on various elements, including the headlamps, signature rear wing, and steering wheel, and has a pink paint finish with a white vinyl top.
This 1970 Plymouth Superbird is thus a great example of classic American muscle that would be an awesome addition to any collection. If you are thinking about getting it, you'd better be loaded, as even though Mecum, which is the auction house behind the ad, hasn't released an estimated selling price, it will probably change hands for more than a nice home in most parts of the Western world.
The pink old-timer will go under the gavel at the Kissimmee event in Florida between January 2 and 14, 2024, and it is offered at no reserve. So, how much do you think it will go for?
