Review/Breakdown: 1970 Plymouth Superbird 426 Hemi

There is nothing subtle about this week’s Muscle Car Of The Week. This Everything about this 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird helps it to stand out in a crowd… the brilliant TorRed color, the high rear wing, the aerodynamic nose, and of course, the growling 426 Hemi V8 under the hood. However, this very car was chosen by some not-so-brilliant outlaws to be the getaway car from a Harrah’s Casino heist in Reno, Nevada. Although they might have thought the speed of a NASCAR superspeedway flyer like this would have helped them escape, they were quickly apprehended and the car taken from them. Today, the car lives a much more lawful existence in the Brothers Collection, where it resides in restored glory safe from wrongdoers. We certainly don’t condone unlawful acts, but we bet the getaway ride was fun!

  1. Sure would be a nice car to have I even have a nice garage to put it in

  2. I never did like the looks of the Bird cars but I like this one. It’s the fact that it’s a hemi and the doggy dish hubcaps and the color.

  3. A very god friend of mine owned one just like this but with one exception: his never was restored and had every factory “flaw” that was typical to the redesigning by Plymouth. His had 9701 original miles on it. Since he was a millionaire, he didn’t have to rob a bank to buy his 13 years ago. Sad ending to this was, he got cancer and passed away before he ever got the chance to trounce the go pedal on the highway.

  4. There was a orange Bird with a 440 near my house for sale, I wish I had the money!
