You wouldn’t think the wing would be able to support that much weight would you ? I remember the photos of dart girl eve hanging off the one and I thought wow it doesn’t even bend or anything.

Well Tom I’d never guess that wing could take 50 pounds nevermind 90. To see two people standing on a wing and it not caving in like in the photo above is surprising to me. Just saying.

In 1970 Plymouth almost couldn't give them away! The only way most of them sold was after the nose was pulled and the stock Road Runner front sheet metal was installed.

Our Local Plymouth dealer was an ornery rich old coot. He would go the Chrysler and buy 5-6 cars, pay for them, and get the cars delivered to his store. That way, they were his cars and he could sell them however he wanted to. He was pretty upset when he was forced to take a Superbird. I do think he managed to sell 3 or 4 Superbirds though, I suspect he bought them up for peanuts. Gene

I could see a Plymouth dealer having a hard time selling a Dodge.

Local dealers had Dodge and Plymouth.Took like a year to sell the Bird. The Dodge dealer had the Daytona for at least 3 years.Offered it to me at a crazy cheap price.Didnt buy it because it was just 440 auto on column.Rocky

Even w/o blowing up the tag, you can spot the "80's" a mile away by the HAIR
(on both of them)!

I can show you some high school annual photos from 1967 with the same hair.
Or are you talking about the red one?

I always wondered how many of those stories were actually true. That sounds like more paint, parts and body work than any dealer would bother with vs selling it for cheap enough to see it go.

You might, again might be able to count on one hand the number of birds and Daytonas converted to wearing it's "stock" nose and sans wing back in the day when new

Most cars seen in this configuration were perhaps the results of parts shortage/availability, repair costs, etc, etc later on in ownership, rather than for "curb appeal" on the dealer's lot when new
