    In my buddies detail shop

    I was in awe this car. 37,000 original miles. In the shop for a ceramic coating. The car is absolutely immaculate. Owner reports last offer was $450,000.

    i've always wanted one too or a daytona, my closest to it was a '68 super bee 383hp,4sp,390 trac pack.....i'm trying to track it down and it's not easy! I do know a feller in ct that has an original hemi bird with under 10k miles. it is a stunning example!

    yup it's a 440, but not a hemi 426 was the only hemi offered to the super bird or daytona.

    Thanks for pointing that out. My detailer buddy told me that not the owner.

    Also would like to know if the value I stated is correct. I was also told that if it was a manual transmission it could push a million dollars. Is that true?

    You didn't state a value, Tom...And I wouldn't have a clue on that anyway, but you might look for completed sales of similar cars at one of those rich boy auctions like Mecum......Ben

    That's what I get for not paying attention......

    I only know my Roadrunner set me back $1500 in 1971...If he'll accept that, I'll take it......Ben

    Man, I love vintage American muscle cars. The only Super Birds I have seen were either on display or in corporate/museum presentations. I've never actually seen one on the street.

    it is a 440 super commando, so that is the base motor for a superbird, 375 hp, then there was the 440 6 barrel(3 2 barrel carbs) 390 hp and the top was the 426 hemi 425hp. with the auto and the 440 super commando i've seen them going for 3 to 400 thousand for perfect examples, manual maybe fetches another 50k. it would take extremely low miles to get much higher. the hemi birds can get a million or more. and the '69 dodge daytona's will go for 500k for the 440 cars to well over a million for a hemi one

    all that being said i've seen superbirds that are nice clean drivers go for 180-220 thousand and i know where there is a very rough one for 65k but it needs everything! floors, trunk pan, quarters, fenders, the wing is missing and no interior at all including gauges.
