Might as well mention it's a 1970 (the only year it was in production). I'd love one of these cars, if I had the money.

DEPENDING ON REAR AXLE RATIO & ENGINE 440 4BBL 440 SIX PACK OR 426 HEMI TOP SPEED ON STOCK STREET SUPERBIRD VARIES . CHRYSLER CORPORATION DID OFFER LOW NUMERIC GEAR RATIO OPTIONS IN 8 3/4 REAR A HEMI SUPERBIRD WITH A 2.08 REAR AXLE THROUGH STOCK EXHAUST MANIFOLDS & STOCK CAM COULD RUN AROUND 170 MPH .BUT MOST SUPERBIRDS HAD A 3.55 / 3.45 REAR AXLE RATIO WHICH WOULD PUT REDLINE WITH THE NON OVERDRIVE TRANSMISSION AT ABOUT 140. STREET SUPERBIRDS NOT RACE CARS AT BONNEVILLE SALT FLAT RUNS HAVE RUN AROUND 220 WITH STIFF REAR AXLE RATIO & ENGINE PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENTS IE HEADERS TUNING & CAMING THATS NON SUPERCHARED ON THE MOTOR .NASCAR SUPERBIRDS RAN AVERAGE LAP SPEEDS OVER 200 MPH & WERE CLOCKED RUNNING BY THE STANDS DOWN THE STRAIGHTS AT TALLADEGA AT OVER 220 MPH . MODIFYING A 426 HEMI TO AN EQUAL LEVEL OF TODAYS NASCAR ENGINES YOU WOULD HAVE A 1200+ HP MONSTER .IT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHAT KIND OF LAP SPEEDS A SUPERBIRD ENHANCED TO THE CURRENT DAY WITH CURRENT SUSPENSION & THAT TYPE OF MONSTER HEMI WOULD DO .NASCAR WANTED TO GET RID OF THESE CARS SO THEY STATED THAT THEY WERE \" OVERLY COMPETETIVE\" .BY 1971 ANYONE RUNNING A WINGED MOPAR WAS PENELIZED HAVING TO RUN A DESTROKED HEMI WITH A 100 CUBIC INCH REDUCTION AS COMPARED TO OTHER CARS THAT WAS ALMOST A 25 PERCENT SMALLER DISPLACEMENT.RICHARD BRICKHOUSE ALMOST WON A RACE IN SPITE OF THAT REDICULOUS RULE \'THAT WAS IN A DAYTONA CHARGER THE SISTER CAR TO THE SUPERBIRD ALSO WITH THE WING & NOSE CONE .THOUGH THEY LOST POWER WITH THAT RULE & TORQUE FOR REACCELERATION THE WINGED CARS WERE ABLE TO RUN INTO THE TURNS FASTER & WERE MORE STABLE WITH THE UPRIGHTS ON THE WING PROVIDING BETTER STABILITY CONTROL & THE TOP OF THE WING AT 2.5 FEET ABOVE THE REAR DECK IN CLEANER AIR PROVINDING DOWNFORCE. THATS WHEN NASCAR BANNED SUPERBIRDS & DAYTONA CHARGERS COMPLETELY.THE TOP STOCK CAR DRIVERS AT THE TIME WERE NOT VERY HAPPY WITH LOOSING THE BEST HANDLING STOCK CAR THEY EVER HAD IN FACT BOBBY ISSACS TOOK THE #22 K&K INSURANCE DAYTONA CHARGER TO THE BONNEVILLE SALT FLATS & SHATTERED 28 NATIONAL & WORLD SPEED RECORDS WITH THE WINGED CAR TO SPITE THE APEASERS & SEND A MESSAGE TO THE WORLD ABOUT THESE GREAT RACECARS. THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF NASCAR AS A BUISNESS WAS NOT TO REWARD ENGENEERING EXCELLENCE BUT AS ANY SMART FOR PROFIT BUISNESS WOULD DO INCREASE REVENUE & GROW.IN ORDER TO ACHEIVE THAT GOAL CATERING TO THE MASSES WAS PRIORITY #1. SINCE THE LARGEST PERCENTAGE OF AUTOMOTIVE FANS WERE GENERAL MOTORS FANS FINDING A WAY TO GET GM CARS WINNING MORE THAN OTHER BRANDS REQUIRED PENALIZING THE MANUFACTURERS THAT WERE MAJORLY OUT\'ENGINERING GM. CHRYSLER & FORD WERE THE KINGS OF NASCAR & WERE GETTING BETTER AT A RATE THAT FLEW OFF IN THE FACE OF NASCARS GOALS.THE PROGRESSIVE PROGRAM LOOSLY DISGUISED AS PROVINGING PARITY.WAS FIRST TO BAN THE WINGED MOPARS NEXT WAS TO GET RID OF CHRYSLERS HEMIS FORDS 385 SERIES BASED BOSS 429 CRECENT CHAMBER MOTORS .DISALLOW THE FORD 427 SOHC & KILL THE CHRYSLER A925 DOOMSDAY ENGINE QUAD CAM 4 VALVE PER CYINDER PENTROOF MOTOR WHICH WAS IN THE WORKS. WHEN THEY[NASCAR] WENT TO SMALL BLOCKS IT WAS AN OUT OF THE FRYING PAN INTO THE FIRE CENARIO FOR THE RULEMAKES AS THEY QUICKLY REALIZED CHRYSLER & FORD SMALL BLOCKS WERE EVEN MORE DOMINANT OVER GM SMALL BLOCKS THAN THE BIG BLOCKS WERE TO GM\'S BIG BLOCKS . SIDE NOTE: FORDS 351 CLEVELAND 4BBL CYLINDER HEADS FLOW MORE AIR THAN BIG BLOCK CHEVY SQUARE PORT HEADS WHICH WERE GM\'S #1 FLOWING CYLINDER HEAD AT THE TIME. EVEN SMOKEY YUNICK THE GURU OF GM PERFORMANCE & A MAJORLY HISTORIC ICONIC HERO OF THE PERFORNMACE WORLD WROTE IN AN ATRICLE THAT THE FORD ENGINE BY DESIGN HAD A HORSPOWER ADVATAGE OVER THE GM SMALL BLOCKS & THE CHRYSLER SMALL BLOCK BY DESIGN HAD PERFORMANCE ADVATAGE OVER THE FORD.THE FIRST YEARS OF SMALL BLOCK NASCAR WERE RULED BY THE MOPARS THEN BY THAT MID SEVENTIES NASCAR FINALLY ENFORCED THE NEEDED RULES TO RESTRICT THE PERFORMANCE POTENTIAL OF THE CHRYSLERS & FORDS ACHEIVING THEIR GOAL WHICH WAS A FORMULA OF HAVE GM WIN APPROXIMATLY 60 PERCENT OF THE RACES FORD NEXT 25 PERCENT & OTHER MAKES CHRYSLER & AMC THE BALANCE. STRICKTLY BUISNESS BASED ON BRAND POPULARITY & FOR NASCAR IT WORKED THEY GREW TEREMENDOUSLY ONCE THEY MADE THE BULK FAN BASE HAPPY. THE CURRENT NASCAR GOAL BEACAUSE THEIR PREDOMINANTLY GM FAN BASE IS GROWING OLDER NOW IS GO AFTER THE YOUTH FAN BASE WHICH IS PREDOMINANLTY AISIN CAR ENTHUSIASTS. THEY HAVE QUIKLY ALLOWED THE TOYOTA CARS TO EXCELL USING A V8 DESIGN THAT IS AN AMALGAM OF THE BEST DESIGN ARCITECTURE OF THE GM FORD & CHRYSLER ENGINES COMPRISED INTO THE \"NEW TOYOTA V8\" BY DESIGN THIS ENGINE HAS TO HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO BE MOST DOMINANT IN THE CURRENT FIELD. YOU WILL SEE A CAT & MOUSE RULE ADJUSTMENT GAME TO GET THEIR WIN PERCENTAGE IN \"THE SWEET SPOT \".IM GUESSING WITH CURRENT FAN BASE CONSIDERED FUTURE GOAL INTEREST & THE YOUNG ENTHUESIEST FACTOR GM WINS 35 PERCENT FORD 20 PERCENT CHRYSLER 12 PERCENT TOYOTA 33 PERCENT. WHICH IS AN IDEAL CALL TO ARMS FOR YOUNG FANS TO GET THEIR ATTENTION THAT NASCAR IS WHERE THEY WANT TO BE .HONDA BASED STOCK CARS THEN MOST LIKELY NISSAN WILL BE NEXT TO BLEED INTO THE SPORT. HINDSIGHT IS 20/20 PAT/440
