Is it a bird, a plane...? No, it's the classic 1970 Plymouth Super Bird

Collectors are invited to consign their rare and historic automobiles to Leake's upcoming auction in Dallas, scheduled to take place on November 19-21.

The sale promises many wonderful and coveted highlights, including this distinctive piece of Americana: the 1970 Plymouth Super Bird.


The 1970 Plymouth Super Bird

Painted in lemon twist with a black vinyl roof, this matching numbers auto boasts a 440 CI V-8 engine, 6-pack carbs and automatic transmission.

According to Leake's lot notes, the Super Bird will be sold with a book of documentation, including a fender tag and Broadcast sheet.

Although it looks like it was designed to take-off into orbit, the car was actually originally built to win at NASCAR.


One of 1,920 examples built for the general public

However, another 1,920 were built for the general public, of which this example is one. The Super Bird will reunited with its appreciative public in Dallas, next month.

Collectors with a love of muscle cars certainly won't want to miss out. Watch this space for upcoming news on the sale.
