Its a Dodge Charger Superbird. You can see a Superbird Wing post at the Left edge of the picture.

The winged Charger was the Daytona, the Superbird was a Plymouth

Y'all are right, that is a 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. Not only can you see the wing, but it also has the rear window plug that all Daytonas have...

That car belonged to Kevin Monk he bought it into Australia late 70's and was featured in Street Machine magazine early 80's. His son inherited it and restored the car and painted it purple with white.
He later sold it and it went back to America about 3 years ago.

The 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona was made by Chrysler Motors Inc. back in the late sixties for the purpose of replacing the unsuccessful Dodge Charger 500 racing in NASCAR. Chrysler applied a design technique that had only been used in the building of planes in the creation of the Charger Daytona; aerodynamics. In late 1969, Chrysler decided to take another company of theirs to create a slightly more aerodynamic version of their 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, through their other linked production company; Plymouth. So, in 1970, the Dodge Charger Daytona was the first car to ever come that close to 200mph, and also the first car to ever the first car to reach it, and the first car to pass it. Three records set in one radical car, in very little time, too! The ironic thing about the Charger Daytona's reputation is that the Ford Talledaga won the 1970 Daytona 500, and the Charger Daytona won the 1970 Talledaga 500. NASCAR changed the rules in late 1970, so the Superbird and the Charger Daytona, both being big-blocked race cars, were eliminated from future NASCAR races, because of the updated rules for the sizes of the engines,and the designs of the cars. So, technically, there is no such thing as the Dodge Charger Superbird. They both had wings on the back. The front and rear ends of both cars were different.
