EVALUATION : Older restoration | Very good but imperfect paint with small blemishes and blisters and a chip at the edge of the hood. Good exterior brightwork save some scratches and faint pitting on the side mirror. Very good interior and vinyl roof cover. A few paint chips in the engine compartment. Despite the minor imperfections, it’s in near-excellent overall condition and is represented with a matching-numbers drivetrain.
BOTTOM LINE : There were seven Superbirds and a Dodge Charger Daytona in Scottsdale this year at Barrett-Jackson alone, although none of them had Hemis. Most sold reasonably well, but the serious money waited for this car—more than 100 grand above than the next most expensive one here. Desirable colors and a 4-speed explain a lot of the money, but not all of it.
