    Quite an investment if you would have been smart enough to buy one of these NEW.
    For $4,500

    Wait a minute. . . . .

    That looks like a 440 6-pack in the white one.

    Dave Smith had one when we were looking for my SRT.
    Would have test drove it, but it was just an Auto :)

    You're right. That is a 440 6-pack motor. You can easily tell by the size and shape of the valve covers and the air cleaner. For comparison, look at this photo of a 426 Hemi.

    They don't even know what they have. The white Superbird is listed as a 440 Commando 4- barrel. It is a 440 6-pack.

    The auctions will expire in 5 days. It will be interesting to see what they go for. The current bids are $155,200 for the blue Superbird and $140,100 for the white one. You would think that the bids on the 440 6-pack would be higher than the other one.

    But the blue one is Petty Blue and a 4-speed.

    That’s the one I’m bidding on, but if you get the white one, can we swap interiors. My ‘71 Cuda had a white interior and I hated it.
