I’ve had more dreams about discovering a Superbird or a Dodge Daytona hiding in a barn than I care to admit, but I don’t think I could even dream up something quite as incredible as this find! Back in 1990, the owner of this bright yellow 440 Six Pack equipped Superbird parked it in their basement, yes basement, and then forgot about it. It sat there until the current owner managed to work out a deal to buy it about a year ago. They pulled it out of the basement and cleaned it up. For whatever reason, they have now decided to part ways with this basement bird. This amazing Plymouth can now be found here on eBay in Croydon, Pennsylvania with a current bid of $114k!
This is such a crazy story that you can’t make something like this up. The previous owner didn’t just have this one bird in their basement, they had another one stashed down there. At one point they apparently had 4 of these winged warriors in their drive way! Looking at the opening going into the basement, I’m actually amazed they were able to get these things in and out without tearing the massive wing off. I can only imagine how it felt to watch such a radical machine slowly lumber out of this hole in the ground!
According to the seller, it had received a complete restoration right before being parked. It looks to have cleaned up extremely well and was clearly given a high end restoration. I’m not sure why they never used it after giving it a complete restoration, but people do some strange things.
I still can’t get over how incredible it is that someone had 2 of these things crammed in their basement, it makes me want to dig out my basement and turn it into a garage! Sadly, I don’t think I’d ever come down to find two Superbirds roosting in it, so it’s probably not worth all the work. For the time being, I’ll just have to keep dreaming! Who else here wishes they had even just one of these cars parked in their garage, barn, or basement?
