I assume you're talking about the door to fender gap? That does look really sloppy.

Had I acquired the car I would have done something about it!

I would assume that he's claiming they were not that way from the factory and he's going to make them right?
I didn't know the show was still broadcast.

Good example of what most seem to forget...The panel fitment,paint runs,different color shot on the panel before the correct color came through the gun, etc...Have all been erased in the name of "restoration" these days..There's a tendency to correct the unique flaws each vehicle had...

Imagine all the times a resto owner would have to explain why his fenders fit so lousy after spending a ton of money on it? laugh2

Where ever the gap came from, it was there when delivered. I think that is the point being made.

It's a legitimate question. If you don't care for it then disregard it.

Superbirds were built on-line at the Lynch Rd. Detroit, MI B-body assembly plant

modifications were made at Chrysler's Clairpointe "prototype" facility across from the Jefferson Ave. Detroit, MI C-body assembly plant

Creative Industries would be at no fault for this Superbird's panel fit issues

My car has what some people say is an excessive gap at the bottom of door to rocker panel. Both sides of car. Top of doors line up with rear quarter, window trim and front fender. Gap is parallel and the same width on both sides. It's a very early build and certainly was delivered that way, never apart, never wrecked, original paint.

Interesting, so Creative did not do any assembly work on Sbirds?

As far as I know creative supplied assembled nosecones to clairpoint, they did not install them. Fenders were installed on the line, before clairpoint.

Seems people forget that when sold they were cars to drive.Yeah fitment paint etc sometimes left a lot to be desired.I remember going to the dealers when they came in new.Lots of stuff didnt look perfect.The new 66 we had had to go back 3 times for the paint.Rocky

My 71 RR has a gap just like that at the bottom of the door. The bodies flexed, and had to have those kind of gaps.

That would be a great tribute car to build. The 69 RR/Superbird Design exercise car. Even better if the original was dug up.

Note the orange peel finish as well. How many people would be happy if they had their car painted and it came back lumpy like that? The contemporary wetsanded and glossy smooth base-clear paint jobs are not what the factory delivered that's for sure.

Agreed! "OCD refurbishment" has been rampant in the restoration hobby the last few decades, ...just like the neatly detailed and tidy/organized engine compartments with "full" paint coverage on all the underhood components/driveline...they never looked that good back at "Day One"

The body of Superbirds were painted at Lynch Road in Enamel. Fenders, hood window plug installed and panted at Lynch Raod. They were missing only the special bird pieces like nose, fender scoops, and wing. As running & driving cars they were sent to clairpoint for these special parts installation, that were painted in lacquer. The paint didn't match too well and didn't hold up to time and elements like the rest of the car.

Then why is there such a small gap between the door and 1/4? That area would see more flex then the bottom of the door.

in simpler times - assembly plant:

#2 - "B" = Hamtramck, MI (DODGEs)
#3 - "C" = Jefferson Ave. Detroit, MI (CHRYSLERs/IMPERIALs)

If EVERY Superbird came from the factory with this particular gap issue then I could understand leaving it alone. But they didn't.
To me it's like a loose bolt, or crooked exhaust tip, fix it. Even if only by moving the door forward a bit to lessen the issue.

Remember quality back in the day wasn't high priority. Look at some "cold fusion" welds on the uni-body. Every car was different. That being said it's not that big a deal to get the alignment pretty decent. Want it perfect? Weld some tig rod to the edge and then do some metal finishing. All personal taste, just like paint finish. The gap on the car shown could definitely be tightened up with nothing more than some adjustment and maybe a little hole elongation. Personally I like 'em slick. Even my racecar.

I was surprised at the pic Harms posted, then today, I checked the gap on my car, same thing, fingers easily inserted. Also worth mentioning is the radius of the door corner (behing scotts arthritic middle finger knuckle ;)) is much smaller than the radius of the rocker. It's almost as though the rocker forming dies were not designed with the door frame and skin available. Either that, or extra clearance for body twist in high hp cars?

My 70 Coronet is original paint 45k mile car I bought from the original owner. When people see the car they comment on the panel fit, visible gaps under the vinyl top or quarter to rocker fit and of course the doors. People are so used to seeing an over restored car they can't believe they came this way from the factory.

But if you wanted to see true fitment and quality issues you should have worked new car prep at the local Plymouth dealer like I did in 77/78. We had the local PD contract for Fury's. What a disaster those things were!

These cars were designed by hand on drafting boards. It is actually amazing that the parts fit together as well as they do. The engineers had absolutely no way to build computer models back in the 60's. The best they could do was print blueprints on vellum and lay them on top of each other to see the parts mated up.

I just spotted this post and can't believe the picture at the start!
This is from my home town of Michiagn City, Indiana. The was the first Superbird I tried to buy from the original owner. Recently there is information that this Superbird was 1 of 5 specially prepared for the auto shows! So if this one was specially prepared it makes the previous comments even worse! This Superbird did have a vinyl top. It was wrecked on the left side of that building before it was sold by someone who hit a utility pole. The first owner also rolled it over in a bad snow storm. Does anyone know where this Superbird is now?

So after I thought about this for a while I came up with a question.
Was this picture was taken after the Superbird was wrecked and repaired by the dealership? The damage was to the right front. It would be interesting if there are any auto show pictures of this Superbird out there.

Why did he say air conditioning wasn't available with a 440 and an automatic transmission?

I'll watch it again, but I rewound it 3-4 times and I'm pretty sure he said it wasn't available with a 440 4-speed, automatic, Hemi, 6-pack or "anything that runs hard". Granted, I was tired, but I don't think I was that tired.

I am sure it was a slip of the tongue but what I heard was no A/C with a 440 with automatic.

I'll watch it again, but I rewound it 3-4 times and I'm pretty sure he said it wasn't available with a 440 4-speed, automatic, Hemi, 6-pack or "anything that runs hard". Granted, I was tired, but I don't think I was that tired.



I guess he "dissed" those with 383's under the hood as being under powered?...

FYI: the 4spd was available with 383 and AC on some applications

I could be wrong. It wouldn't be the first time. Although on one of his pre-commercial quizzes, he did say that stock manifolds made more power than headers...

Whatever he said, we know it was 100% correct. That's how he rolls.

here's a good read on Superbird assembly line procedures if interested? http://www.wwnboa.org/patik.htm

Great article, thanks for posting that! It mentions in the article
my Dad's job...he worked at the Highland Park offices, in the Product Scheduling Dept. as a computer operator, making the IBM TAB cards with the vehicle VON/VIN info on them. I actually have a few cards from him
stashed away somewhere.
