John Balow of Muscle Car Restorations restored this FY1 yellow Superbird, which was seen during the reconstruction of Bristol Motor Speedway. It was formerly a pace car at a short track and is powered by the 440 U-code engine.
The reason the cars were built was to get this driver, Richard Petty, back into a Plymouth. Seen here at the fall race in Talladega, King Richard would have certainly won the World Championship save for a devastating and race-missing accident at Darlington in mid-season.

The 1970 Plymouth Superbird was considered the most flamboyant Road Runner of them all when the dust finally settled on the model’s tenure in 1980. (Steve Netkow Photo)
