The Superbird started life as a one off show special, designed to attract attention at the Melbourne and Sydney motorshows.

It was such a success however that Ford decided to release a limited run of Superbirds. They toned down the graphics of the showcar, limiting it to a much smaller bird on the rear wings than the large bird featured on the special, which covered the rear quarter panel, door and part of the front guard!

The car was available in three different paint schemes, white and blue, lime and green and yellow and brown and each was fitted with a louvre for the rear window.

Mechanically they ran the 302ci V8 engine with a choice of manual or automatic transmissions and featured a plush interior and GT instrumentation.

Approximately 700 Superbirds were made in all three color schemes, 500 with automatic and 200 with manual gearboxes.
