Richard Petty’s Plymouth Superbird And Road Runner Head To Auction
If you’re a fan of The King and have a lot of cash, you could own the NASCAR star’s 1970 Plymouth Superbird or 1971 Plymouth Road Runner. Both vehicles are going to be crossing the auction block over the next few days as part of Mecum’s “The Todd Werner Collection” in Harrisburg.
Petty’s Superbird was the only year that was deemed eligible for racing in NASCAR. Petty drove this car to a grand total of 18 wins and 31 top 10 finishes in the 1970 NASCAR season.
On the next lot is Petty’s 1971 Plymouth Road Runner that helped him score the ’71 Grand National championship trophy with 21 race wins and 38 top-five finishes.
Mecum estimates that the Road Runner could go for anywhere between $1 million and $1.5 million.
