The history of powerful and fast American muscles is full with so many great cars that are putting smiles on the face of every true Detroit muscle enthusiast and fulfills us all with positive vibes, every time we think about them. But amongst all those legends which are a perfect representation of the period when cars were more than just means to go from point A to point B, but part of people`s dreams converted into the real life, two cars have special place when it comes to racing competitions. The cars that have left a deep impact on the entire sport and our conception of speed and (almost) perfect aerodynamic design – 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona and 1970 Plymouth Superbird!
Today we are going to remind ourselves through a photo-video, of the iconic 1970 Plymouth Superbird, the car that has seven NASCAR titles and a great number of Piston Cups in its portfolio. This legend was initially built and constructed to beat the Ford Torino. The Superbird is actually modified Plymouth Road Runner, borrowing some design features from the `69 Daytona, like adding 19 inches to its length, smoothed-out body style, high mounted and big rear wing, and the retractable headlights. Along with the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, the Superbird was the very first car that was designed using a computer technology and wind tunnel. There were few choices for the engine: the 440 Super Commando and the 440 Six Barrel for the `civilians`, and the race Superbirds were powered by the legendary 426 HEMI.
So check out the video that we have chosen for you in this article, in which through many photos, we will remind ourselves on one of the most legendary muscle cars ever! And if you want to find out more interesting things about it, go to this link.
