To answer your question it depends on whether or not this is a real SuperBird or a fake?
#1 - If this is a real 1970 Superbird then you only have ONE option, IMO, and that is the color that came on it from the factory. If you are unsure on that let me know and I will help you research it.
You will lose a lot of value on the vehicle if you paint it any color but the original one. The SB's are very valuable muscle cars when restored properly and as they made so few it is a crime to modify them. I mean no offense by this but PLEASE do not do anything to that car but restore it to original if it is a real SB.
The original colors offered were( I can provide paint codes for you if needed )...
Blue Fire Metalic
Corporation( Petty )Blue
Lemon Twist Yellow
Vitamin C Orange
The rarest color used was the Corporation( Petty )Blue. If your SB came that color you absolutely want to use it again. Only approx 5% of SB's came in that color. If yours has that color it is really a rare bird. They all are actually as you are talking fewer than 300 vehicles made in each paint color. There were fewer than 40 painted Petty Blue.
Chrylser Corporation made fewer than 2000 SB's total. Actual figures range from as few as 1920 to the "official" Chrysler # of 1935 SB's. So, doing anything to it but a full resto is just wrong. Has me cringing
#2 - if this is a mock though then use any color you want. I like the Blue Fire Metailc myself. I would also say to check out Plum Crazy Purple if it is a fake. Saw a fake Daytona done PC and it was wild.
No offense meant by this either as stated. I would never dream of telling someone what to do with their property but we are talking one of the rarest and most valubale muscle cars in MOPAR's history. That car deserves to be kept stock IMO. If it was one of the countless base muscle cars made then it is no big deal to modify it up to your own taste. Doing it to such a rare and vauable car though is a big no no.
How about a photo? The SB's and Daytona's, but especially the SB's, are a passion of mine. Love Road Runners too. Actually, if it was a MOPAR I love it! This message has been edited.
