The Plymouth Superbird PKG for Dodge Cars St. Louis

classic dodge cars st. louis-the dodge daytonaAll Star Dodge Dealer, home of a wide selection of new Dodge cars St. Peters in Missouiri knows that the Plymouth Superbird conversion package is a great choice for new Dodge cars that will be transformed to mimic the Plymouth Superbird.

The base package features a revamped front fascia, sporty headlights that pop up, oversized rear wings, upgraded taillights, and 20 inch sport wheels. Also included as part of the package are some great interior touches such as an updated instrument cluster and shifter, as well as HHP floor mats.

Other options for the aftermarket package include; a ventilated hood, custom seats, and a painted interior trim, as well as 3 different superchargers for the 6.1 liter HEMI V8 engine as well as 3 coilover suspension options.

The 1969 Dodge Daytona was an iconic Dodge car, considered one of the fastest muscle cars in in its time, in fact it was so fast that it held the record for speed for nearly 13 years.  Daytona had a massive spoiler added to the back to help the vehicle maintain its traction. With a standart 440 CC engine that produced 375 HP, air would actually go underneath the vehicle and lift it.  Even faster, the 426 HEMI (designed for racing) produced a whopping 425 HP.Compared to some of the modern day Dodge muscle cars such as the Viper-the draft coefficient was not nearly as impressive.  Viper’s coefficient in the first generation was .5 and Dodge Daytona came in at just .28.  The Daytona had one interesting fluke; if it was driven too slow, it would end up getting too hot and the engine could actually overheat.

Believe it or not the Daytona was actually built like an option package from Dodge Chargers which were converted with a metal rear spoiler, front wedge over the nose, an under-nose spoiler, vertical stabilizers, and a backlight modification,  Then later Plymouth did just about the same thing to its Road Runner and the Plymouth Superbird was born.  It was a bit slower than the Daytona with a top speed of 160 miles per hour in a fund to drive vehicle.
