HPP Goes Retro With Dodge Daytona And Plymouth Superbird Kits

Dodge Daytona and Plymouth Superbird kits from HPP

We’re sure many readers are still trying to forget those sorry days back in the 1970s where cars like the Dodge Daytona and Plymouth Superbird used to roll the streets. The cars were hotted up versions of regular models like the Dodge Charger and Plymouth Road Runner, originally developed for NASCAR's homologation requirements, but their outlandish styling--even during the muscle car era of the ‘70s--caused them to be a sales flop.

Fast forward to today and bids for some original examples at auction can range into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Their popularity today has proven so intense that one company, Heide Performance Products (HPP), has even created a modern iteration of the car based on the latest Dodge Challenger.

After unveiling a concept version of the Daytona and Superbird package together with Mopar, HPP is now selling the kit for a starting price of $16,395. This ‘base’ package gets you the revised front fascia, pop-up headlights, aluminum hood (with a T/A-style scoop), the trademark massive rear wing, new taillights, and 20 inch wheels. Inside, there’s a modified instrument cluster, a unique shifter, and HHP floor mats.

Performance upgrades include three different supercharger kits designed for the Challenger’s 6.1-liter Hemi V-8, as well as KW coilover suspension Magnaflow exhaust systems. Other items include a vented hood, a ground-effects bodykit, a custom paint job for the interior and new seats.

All in all there are more than 50 individual components available for interested Dodge Challenger owners, with the total bill for every part coming up to $41,461. This of course does not include installation or the donor Challenger coupe.

  1. The 70's Plymouth Road Runner is probably up there in the top lists' for the worst add-on bodykit application for any car., an absolute abomination really.
