"Imagine finding your dream car when it was considered ""just a used car"". That is precisely what the current owner if this original, factory documented 4spd, HEMI Superbird did when he purchased it in 1982 from the original owner. This was ordered new in Texas as a Chrysler Executive car. When the executive received a new car in 1971, Chrysler made the car available through the Race Car Driver's Program. As prices for genuine 4-speed manual shift HEMI Superbirds have climbed into the stratosphere, it is a rare to find one that is still driven and enjoyed every car show season.
Now this is a guilt-free ride with a non-original motor and transmission- so you don't have to bit your nails worrying about detonating the original VIN matching units. When only 58 of them made in this powertrain configuration, that doesn't impact value or collectiblility.
What this Hemi 'bird does have and is, in many collector's mind, more important than an original motor. The car has the Original Broadcast Sheet, Original VIN Tag, Original Door Label, and Original Fender Tag. All the body numbers are also present and accounted for.
A restoration was completed in 2010. Quarters, trunk floor, rear wheel housing, and rear panel were replaced at that time. The front clip and nose cone are OEM metal. The paint and body are in very good condition. Panel fit and alignment is every good, as factory original. The vinyl top and and front windshield are also new. The paint work, as previously stated, very good. No bubbles, solvent pops, or any significant blemishes or defects. Any where and tear is consistent with seasonal driving, maintenance and enjoyment.
The interior was also restored as part of the 2010 restoration. The dash remains original to the car. The main wiring harness, carpet, headliner, front and rear seat covers are all new. Most Superbirds came with black interior. The factory white offsets the B5 Blue exterior, giving it a look that sets it apart from most any other color combo. The interior is in very good condition, patina consistent with the age and overall state of repair on the vehicle. The interior presents as factory original, with the exception of a set of under dash mounted accessory gauges. All lights and accessories are in working order.
The engine block is a 1970 date coded block, rebuilt with 20 over pistons and hardened valve seats to handle unleaded fuel. The engine bay appears factory correct in the broad sense of the word. Carbs, valve covers, and air-cleaner are all correct for the car. It features a stock appearing a super cooling 5 core radiator. This is a driver. Accessories and assemblies have been upgraded or altered to optimize reliability, performance, and driving enjoyment. The car is equipped with power steering, power brakes, and electronic ignition. The overall appears of the engine is neat and clean, showing normal wear and patina congruent with a car that is driven, enjoyed, and well cared for.
The undercarriage is dry, rust free, with no evidence of active fluid leaks. The floorboards and wheel wells are treated with factory sound installation and stone chip guard. The transmission is an A833 overdrive transmission, which makes the car more fun to drive. The HEMI correct 18 spline box also comes with the car.The exhaust and fuel tank appear to have been replaced sometime in its history.
If you are looking for a genuine HEMI Superbird backed by a 4-speed transmission that you can actually drive and enjoy, this is it.
