Description

Lot #1289 - This Superbird was rotisserie restored with great attention to detail and correctness of every nut and bolt and is highly documented with its original Broadcast Sheet and original owners manual. A 20 page in person visual inspection by Galen Govier was completed that goes with the car verifying that it does have its original drivetrain components. Only 77 HEMI Birds with automatic transmissions were built, less than 30 known to still exist today. The car's restoration totally agrees with the Broadcast Sheet and the fendertag. The famous 426cid HEMI engine with its 425 advertised horsepower and two 4-barrel carburetors was the king of the NASCAR track when combined with the sleek aerodynamics of the Superbird, a modified Roadrunner. This one has a matching numbers 727 Torqueflite handling the power of the matching numbers original HEMI powerplant. The rear axle is the original one which is 8 3/4" size with 3.55 gears (A36 Package). Other features are power steering, power front disc brakes, AM radio, Rally dash and 3-speed wipers. This Alpine White Superbird has it all in one beautifully restored package. A rare low-production HEMI car with matching numbers, historic documentation and verification by Govier.
