This is Murray Markwell, he’s a gear-head from the land down under and the owner of a small restoration shop called Southern Customs. He also has an affinity for the Dodge and Plymouth winged cars of 1969 and 1970, which means right off the bat, I like this guy. Murray’s love for American cars started at a very young age as his father was employed by General Motors. He’d make frequent trips to the United States and upon his return to Australia, would present his young son with all sorts of literature on American cars. What you are seeing here is a 1970 Plymouth Superbird, a car that, like the 1969 Dodge Daytona, was built to go fast and dominate on America’s super speedways. This one is a clone that was built from a 1970 Plymouth GTX, but all that means is that it can be driven hard and put away wet without having to worry about a drop in value. It’s equipped with a 7.2-liter 440 cu in mill, 727 three-speed transmission and sounds glorious. Click through for the video to enjoy some good old fashion Mopar muscle.
