I have to tell you all a TRUE STORY although it DOES NOT involve a post car but DOES involve a Superbird---here goes:
Many of you know that I am in the car business for a living::::but NOT the typical slick used car salesman with a plaid sport coat and sunglasses. I am the Wholesale Manager for Anderson Automotive Group (formerly Anderson Olds--the dealer that sponsored and raced my '69 W-31). Anyway, one of the fellows at the auction that is also a "car guy" besides doing it for a living, made a trade in 1974 that is one of the "TO GOOD TO BE TRUE" stories. He traded even-up a Plymouth Arrow for a Plymouth Superbird. I had heard about the story and did confirm that it actually happened and have seen photos of the Superbird. It is blue (not familiar with Mopar paint codes), 440-stick, with 30k miles and 90% original paint. In my business, there are a handful of guys that aren't the slicksters, and we kinda look out for each other because we are far out-numbered, and there is the "honor among thieves" bond. Well, this fellow is a "member", and I am glad for him and his prosperous trade. TRUE STORY!!!

I have heard of folks restoring Belvedere's and finding the telltale signs of the car being a Superbird. Imagine that kind of luck! That back glass would be a dead giveaway.

the plymouth superbird front fenders and hood were from a dodge coronet. if you look closely you can see the difference, the wheel openings and side marker lamp are dodge. i guess the dodge was better adaptable to the nose design for air flow? along with the rear window plug, the trunk hinges had stops welded in to keep the lid from going high enough to contact wing. dennis

wouldn't it be because Dodge had issued the Daytona in 69? A year before the Superbird, hence using the already available and amortized tooling and moulds?

That's a good question? If you look at them side by side you can see nothing is interchangeable as far as the nose cone and wing. My guess is because the way the dodge tapered down more at the front edge? I wonder what they did with all the extra Plymouth front ends, or if they were complete when sent to be modified? dennis

 I have also heard that some folks have found strange bracing and holes in the top of a quarter, not knowing why it was. I read a story somewhere once about just such a build.

Indeed. The funds can be appropriated towards Bowtie stuff.
