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.

If he's such a perfectionist, why is the dust trail stripe on the yellow '70 Road Runner where it is?

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

He said no A/C with hemi, or 440 4-speed, but you could get it with an auto.

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 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.
