Did you ever sit in a Lil Green Car like this one? It's a 1970 Super Bird. It remains all original, drivin quite often and clocks currently 167,000 miles. I am told with the white lettering, they are more rare than black. Powered by the 440 ci and a 6 pack. It has the air plane stick 4 speed shifter. The car has never had any restorations and my pics dont show the wear but on its top.

I thank you Flashguy for the help posting. I need a new site to save and post images.

Quite nice.
Closest I got was my dad's friend's yellow Road Runner, don't think it was a 440 in his, but it is/was quite a quick car.

I love those cars. Years ago I got to drive a '69 Dodge Daytona. Had more interior room than my GMC Yukon!

The owner of this bird had a Daytona but sold it.

I would be afraid to drive that, for just the monetary factor. Those gems are not cheap to buy or replace parts.

Very nice, I like Superbirds. The airplane stick shifter you mention is actually called the Hurst Pistol Grip shifter.





First Year for the Hurst Pistol Grip Shifter

The First Pistol Grip
The first pistol grip shifters landed in showrooms on 1970 model cars. If you stopped by the dealership in late 1969 you could see 4-speed cars like the second generation Dodge Charger sporting the unique shift handle. Chrysler pony cars like the Plymouth Barracuda and the Dodge Challenger RT (Road Track) also used them.

Shift handles of the past came in all shapes and sizes. However, all of them had threaded holes and they screwed down onto the threaded rod of the shifter. The pistol grip is a completely different ballgame. The real wood handles mount to the sides of the shift lever just like they would on a real hand held firearm.

Recessed, heavy duty, stainless steel screws with a drop of thread locking compound assured a solid connection. They finished off the top of the handle with a stainless steel cap that included an easy to read map of the shift pattern. When you reached down and grabbed the pistol grip shift handle it felt like you were holding a 357 Magnum.

Why you see so Many Pistol Grip Shift Handles
You gain a tremendous sense of power and precision when you hold the handgun shaped handle. Although it probably has little to no effect on quarter-mile time, it feels good and it looks awesome.

For this reason Chrysler, muscle car owners have a tendency to install it on their automobiles. Aftermarket companies like Brewer's Performance make adapters and high-quality reproduction handles at reasonable price points. This makes it possible for people to add the popular accessory, even if it doesn't belong on the car.

a kid at the high school brought one in one day ,
His dad was a plymouth dealer, in town.

He said "I can drive it when ever I want"

that lasted 10 days , the Highway patrol pulled him over doing over 100 m.p.h. on I-80 .

never saw him driving it again ,after that.

In those days it wasn't a huge deal,
a lot of people were driving 75 -80 m.p.h.

The '70 is all original and gets drivin often. Rick is driving from northern Kentucky to Talladega Speedway next Tuesday. He had new air shocks installed yesterday and mentioned the head liner might need a repair. He treats it like a car, closes the doors a bit hard, sets his soda can atop the fender. It gets put into service.
