We’ve featured a craigslist Superbird before, but this is the first one we’ve seen on the free classifieds site in a few years now. It always makes us leery to find such a high dollar car on there, but you never know. This Superbird is claimed to have been off the road since 1986 and to have only 43k miles on the odometer! It’s located in Upstate New York and is listed here on craigslist for $85k. Thanks goes to Daniel S for the tip!
You could get a 426 Hemi or a 440 Super Commando in your Superbird. Looks like the latter is in there, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The Hemi would make the car more valuable, but the 440 was a beast of an engine with lots of low end torque. If the mileage number is correct, this muscle car should be worth quite a bit more than the asking once it’s made road worthy.
This winged Mopar does look pretty good in the photos. The interior appears to be very clean for a car that has sat for 30 years though. I ran the photos through a search to see if the car had been listed before and nothing came up. That’s a good thing to do with a craigslist find just to make sure it’s not a scam. That’s not a guarantee though. There’s only an email listed in the ad, so don’t click on any strange links that may come back.
Hopefully this one is legit, but with any online purchase, better safe than sorry. The listing hasn’t been up for more than 24 hours, so you’ll want to act fast, but proceed with caution. Make sure you know what you are getting and be careful sending money. A transaction this big should probably be done after meeting the seller in-person. If anyone does end up pursuing this bird, we would love to hear the outcome!
