The Plymouth Superbird is one of those classic American cars from the muscle car era that has captured the imagination of all sorts of automotive enthusiasts long after its presence on roads and race tracks wore away.

With values currently in the $30,000 range, the Torino is still attainable by those who don't have six-figure budgets to work with.
