https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/1970-PLYMOUTH-HEMI-SUPERBIRD-215118

Lot #1430 - This stunning HEMI Superbird is one of 135 ever produced, and one of only 77 automatics. It is powered by its original matching-numbers 426ci 8-cylinder engine. The transmission was upgraded with the famous 18-spline A833 HEMI 4-speed manual transmission and the rear end was upgraded with the stout 3:54 Dana. Its solid provenance is validated with its original decoded Fender Tag, matching-numbers engine, most of the Build Sheet and all body stampings. This Bird retains much of its original interior, including the original seats, door panels, instrument cluster, dash pad and headliner. In addition to the original engine, it has the original carbs and distributor. It has been beautifully repainted and retains the original vinyl roof. It also comes with both, hard to find, original jacks. The sheet metal is original and rust-free, and even the reproduction resonators show the Chrysler Pentastar. It rides on Goodyear Polyglas tires over Rallye wheels.

(Price includes buyer commission)

Apparently, buyers were holding out for the two 6-bbl cars for the same money.      "Easy access spark plugs?   Nah, I'm good."

I donít know about you guys but Iíd rather have a good solid original Hemi car over a stripped and flipped rotisserie six barrel car. Defies logic in my eyes.

Trans and axle have been swapped out, so not numbers matching anymore.
Unless the original parts are still around, that hurt the sale price.   Twocents

I agree.   The Hemi is the better car, I was very surprised it didn't drag more money compared to the earlier cars that day.   Especially since anything Hemi was big money on Friday, but not on Saturday?!?

I'm not in a financial position to purchase a Hemi bird, no matter the color or transmission. But if I were, I'd make a solid offer for yours instead... Nicest one I know of - WNut...

Possibly a glass nose?     Who knows.    We weren't there to actually thump on it.

It was steel. It had a dent in the opening of the left headlight door.
