Rare survivor 1970 Plymouth Superbird 'Six Barrel' up for auction and worth six figures

This bird is ready for takeoff.

A rare 1970 Plymouth Superbird muscle car owned by the same family for nearly a half-century is coming up for auction and expected to pull a huge price.

The Superbird was only built for one year, but remains one of the most iconic American cars of all time.

Its aerodynamic nosecone and high rear wing were designed to help Plymouth dominate on the NASCAR circuit with the likes of Richard “The King” Petty behind the wheel.

Interest in the model as had a resurgence in recent years, however, and the thousand or so that are left have become highly sought after collector cars, especially the ones in good shape.

Top models often go for over $500,000, and a perfectly restored Superbird with a 426 Hemi V8 engine was auctioned last year for a record $1.65 million.

Now, one that is not perfect but is almost perfectly original is coming up for auction.

The “Vitamin C Orange” coupe still has chalk marks inside that were added by workers as it moved down the assembly line a half-century ago. It shows 57,178 miles on the odometer, has a few scrapes and dents and the paint on its fender-top vents is faded.

“People never got used to how long that nose was,” Soneff said.

Even though his shop does restorations, Soneff kept it as he found it and drove it for several years, but has started trimming his fleet and is offering it with dozens of other cars with VanDerBrink Auctions through June 10.

Already quite the appreciation from its original price of around $5,000.
