A 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird, a street legal race car Plymouth produced for the consumer market in enough of a quantity (just over 1,900) to satisfy NASCAR’s production requirements to allow Richard Petty to race the car during the 1970 NASCAR season.  The Superbird boasted a large tailfin, a nosecone with recessed headlights, decals of Warner Brothers’ “Road Runner” character holding a racing helmet, and a factory horn which produced a sound resembling Road Runner’s famous “Beep! Beep!”
