New “Plymouth Superbird” spotted at the 2013 Smoky Lake car show

That looks like a 1970 Plymouth Superbird, doesn’t it?  But examine the photo carefully.  In fact, it’s  a new generation Dodge Challenger, modified with an HPP (Heide Performance Products) body kit to transform the modern MOPAR muscle car into a high tech retro-rod.  We spotted this beautiful ‘Plymouth’ Saturday at the Smoky Lake auto show, held each year in conjunction with the town’s annual Pumpkin Festival.  The MOPAR owner says it’s the only HPP Plymouth Superbird kit-modified Dodge Challenger in Canada.

The ‘hidden’ headlights don’t pop up like they do on the original 1970 Plymouth Superbird.  Instead, the rear edge of the faux hidden headlight panel drops down into the nose to reveal the Challenger’s OEM headlights.  The owner says the kit, which includes the Superbird’s distinctive nose and outrageous trunk spoiler costs about $12,000.  Note how low the front splitter sits.  The car doesn’t get driven in the winter.

Beautiful.  And very, very cool.
