    I was looking through a nearly 40 year old note book of mine from back when I was actively looking for what would be known as "barn finds" today. I came across a note and a VIN for a Superbird. Wondered if this car is known or on anyone's radar. VIN is RM23V0A168749. I may have written the VIN down wrong, or possibly a mis-stamp, as my only notes state 440 4BBL, 4SPD, 32000 miles. Which would make it RM23U0A168749. The original colour was yellow I believe, although it was hard to tell and I never saw the data plate (hood was locked). I do not even recall where it was exactly, but probably was in Michigan or Eastern Ontario as that seems to be where I was searching at the time. Sorry, no photos. I had completely forgot about this until I looked through my old notes.

        You had better luck than I did with the Google search. That is it in that old article. I thought it was yellow, but apparently orange. It was nearly 40 years ago.

        Google you know..sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.. I saw where it was an older article but didn't know if it might give you some insight where it might be or a lead on owner??

        was that the same article you read to begin with?

            I actually saw that car in person back in about 79 or 80. The owner at the time would be in his 80's if he is still with us. I will look into it. I wasn't going to pursue the family if it is known to be in someone else's hands now.
