A buddy of my dad had one... bright yellow. We used to tease him that the wing on the back would be great for drying his cloths...

Unfortunately, the car was stolen and found at the bottom of the Detroit River. Insurance company, of course, totaled it. Then he bought a lime green Challenger.

In the July issue of Automobile Magazine, a 1970 Superbird with 8084 original miles sold for $153,700 at an auction in Branson. The car is completely original with just minor repaint on the front end.

Is that all??? I'm shocked!!! :mg: Well, the re-paint probably cost the seller $25,000.

I've seen a similar condition Daytona (15K miles) go for over $250,000! But they built more Superbirds ...

Absolutely beautiful!!! They were a very limited production automobile to begin with, although not as rare as the Datonas. That convertable has to be rarer than hen's teeth!!

Actually, for that year, that was a somewhat expensive car. There was only one of them in the western New York state area that I knew of. Of course at that time I was vacationing in the Republic of Viet Nam.

You could of bought one a year or two later for a big discount. Many dealers had them for over a year and no one would buy those ugly cars with the wing. Some think it would of been a good investment. They are wrong. Take that money and put in the stockmarket would give a much better return. If you bought the car you would of had to pay 35 years of storage and insurance. Thats why cars are not investments. Sometimes stocks are not very good investments. DC stock has not been too good to me over the last 5 years.

People don't collect those cars for the money. It's for the pride in a rare car. And since it's a Chrysler no wonder your ripping on it. Yea it may have a big wing, but it's functional, and it will run anything that Japan puts out off the road.

The convertible is a fake. It's probably a 70 Satellite, Road Runner, or GTX that's been fitted with a nose and wing - at least I hope no one chopped a Superbird up like that!!! ALL Superbirds had a black vinyl top to cover up the factory body work required to change the rear glass ...

If the dash, VIN tag, and fender tag are still there then it's rebuild-able ... Most cars can be brought back from the dead - for a price. Superbirds are worth enough that you could build it from the ground up and still break even. I've seen ads for 'em where they are dis-assembled (but with all the parts) and unrestored and still going for $20K!

If you've got free (or very cheap) storage it can be worth it - if you pic the right car. Insurance not required ...

BTW - Short-term (5 years) cars can do much better than the market.
