CT543 Dodge Daytona & Plymouth Superbird Design, Development, Production,
Author: Steve Lehto
In the fiercely
competitive world of NASCAR, every manufacturer was looking for a competitive
edge. Ford and Chrysler turned their attention to the aerodynamics of their
race cars, resulting in a brief era affectionately called the Aero Wars. During
the height of this competition, Chrysler and Ford produced, among other things,
cars with radically altered grilles and tail sections. Mandated by series to
produce production versions, these exotic beasts became some of the most
costly, creative, and collectible machines ever assembled in Detroit, whether
in race trim or in stock street trim. Author Steve Lehto gives a thorough and
detailed account of the history of this battle that culminated with the final
wars between the Ford Talladega/Mercury Cyclone and the Dodge Daytona/Plymouth
Superbird. The story of Richard Petty's defection from Plymouth, the mighty
Hemi, and the creation of the street version of these cars all come to light in
this all-encompassing tale of Chrysler climbing the ladder to NASCAR supremacy.
Dodge Daytona and Plymouth Superbird: Design, Development, Production and
Competition delivers a blow-by-blow account of the biggest races between FoMoCo
and Chrysler, along with telling the rich stories of the development of these
cars. If you are a fan of NASCAR, or just love outrageous muscle cars, this
richly detailed and well-illustrated account of a fascinating era of
performance will be a valued addition to your library.
