1970 Plymouth Roadrunner Superbird 426 Hemi
A Superbird? That's right! This is a 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner Superbird with the 426 Hemi V8 and a 4-speed. 1 of 58 cars with this combo in the real world, out of the 1920 birds that has been built. I tried to make a Superbird out of my 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner 383 car a long time ago, but never finished it. This time I did, and here it is! So yet again this car is at a very large scale. This bird is 22 studs wide, and 65 studs long! It's a heavy bird with it's 2611 parts.
About this creation
The 1970 Superbird came out in seven different colors. My favorite color for a bird is "Petty Blue". The Lego medium blue is a great match with this color, and makes it the perfect color combo for me with a black vinyl top (which all of the birds had) and a nice white interior.

Functions: everything opens, the hood, doors, and trunk, working steering with steering wheel, suspension and differential at the rear, and also for this car: a working V8 Lego Technic engine.








This is easily the best Superbird front nose I have ever built.





Notice the rear quarter side scoops and the body line just under it all the way across.


This wing has just about the same measurements of a real one and is as accurate as possible in Lego.


Looking at the car from this angle, you have no idea of how long that nose is. I always thought that was neat.





Notice the vents on the top of the fenders. They are actually vents and not just some plates stacked on top of each other.


The top view, so you can get the idea of how long this car is.


Let's have a look at that elephant engine... Yes, it needs to have a Hemi, this is a wing car.


There it is, the 426 Hemi dual quad V8 engine. Rated at 425 HP from the factory.

Again the only thing that's missing here are the spark plug wires and heater hoses, so I replaced these with black round 1x1 plates. You can check out the Hemi engine of the 1970 'Cuda Convertible on my homepage to get the idea how it looks like with these parts.





The interior; black and white, with bucket seats and the headrest integrated in, 4-speed hurst shifter with pistol grip and without console. Who needs the extra weight of a console in a wing car right?


The doors will open and close very nicely, and are hold with studs when closed.


There is a lot of space in this trunk, just like my 1969 Roadrunner. Notice the stabilizer bars for the spoiler. Now why was this spoiler so tall? To make the car go fast. Yes it looks like it was made this way so that the trunk can open, but who cares about the trunk on a car like this?








A view at the underside...


And yet another nice final picture of the 1970 Hemi 'Cuda Convertible, 1969 Roadrunner 383 Coupe and 1970 Hemi Roadrunner Superbird togheter.

Thank you for viewing this page, I hope you like it. Tell me what you think!

Quoting Scott Bertaut An excellent build and some excellent photography to show it off. I like some of the little touches you made, such as the actual vents on the sides of the hood or the trunk keyhole. I like the Superbird in yellow myself, but blue actually looks really good too. Great work!
Thank you very much! Yes a Superbird really looks good in blue!

Quoting Jack Sparrow I know a lot of guys love this car, but the big wing always was a turnoff. Having said that, you nailed this car, and that's what matters! Perfect dimensions, and you got the nosecone. Excellent work!
Thanks! Yes the spoiler can be difficult, it depends mostly on what scale you are building.
