At some point, you’d think we’d run out of “barn finds,” collector cars stored away for years and years, wasting away, waiting to be rediscovered. Then, two Plymouth Superbirds show up in a garage in Maine, having sat there for almost four decades. The only conclusion we can draw is that barn-finds are clearly a renewable resource.
The two ‘Birds—a B5 Blue example with a 440ci V8 and a four-speed stick, and an Alpine White with a 426 Hemi and an auto—are listed separately on eBay, though the seller says they’d like to sell them as a pair.
The seller acquired the pair after meeting the previous owner at an Auction in Maine. That guy, a Mopar mechanic and collector, bought the two cars from the original owner in 1978 and drove both until the mid 1980s.
Neither car runs, but the garage where they were kept must’ve protected them from many New England winters. Both appear to be rust-free, with no major damage to speak of, and the engines and transmissions are all numbers-matching. Additionally, the seller cleaned the two ‘Birds after their acquisition, though they could use some additional detail work.
