Other than new paint, the Superbird is unrestored and all original.

About this Article
It's only fitting that Doug Schellinger and his dad, Monroe, would come to love and appreciate the Plymouth Superbird by watching it in its natural environment — in action on the racetrack. Four decades ago, the father and son would watch the Superbird race aroud the Milwaukee Mile.
