GROUND THUMPING 440 CI, SLICK PAINT/BODY, AIR GRABBER GOOD SCOOP, CLEAN MOPAR!
It's going to be harder to find a meaner example of Mopar muscle than this. With the big 440 V8 under the hood, mean air grabber leading the way, a wicked growl from the enhanced exhaust, and so much more, this 1970 Plymouth Road Runner is the fiercest bird around... but it still doesn't lose that charm we all love.
Born a factory Burnt Tan car, this hardtop has gone under a more aggressive makeover to better emphasize some of its great factory options. Vitamin C is one of those legendary colors that came from Mopar's High Impact color palette in 1970, and the very professional application of this attention-grabbing orange just looks right on this car. After all, it came directly from the factory with aggressive features like the optional hood pins, those large side scoops, and that big, bad Air Grabber hood that rises up and looks like it wants to consume all the lesser cars as it chargers up from behind. And we know you really love the yellow Road Runner graphics that remind you about how this coupe can leave everyone else in the dust. But more than just the right color and muscle car features, we know you're attracted to this one because it shows there's been careful ownership in all the details. The panels line up nicely; the big chrome bummers rival the paint for shine; and the 15-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels add some period-correct aggression. It's one great muscle Mopar.
The factory-correct white roof not only adds some class to the exterior, but also it gives you a nice preview of the interior. The already pristine color is easy to maintain because the vinyl cleans up in a snap. Plus, carpets are black so you never have to worry about taking your shoes off before hopping in and going for a drive... and that's exactly what this car was built to do. These were intermediate size muscle cars of the day, but that designation in the '60s means full-size comfort today. So there's plenty of room to have up to five family and friends riding with you, but you don't need any of them to have fun with this Road Runner. It feels like a driver's car from the moment you grab the factory three-spoke wheel with the "Beep! Beep!" center cap – a subtle reminder of the fun cartoon horn. And the trio of auxiliary gauges keep you constantly informed. Sure, you could have fun playing with the original AM radio, but really we know you'll really be all about turning the key and creating a rumbling soundtrack with the dual exhaust.
In 1970 the base V8 for these Road Runner was the 383 cubic-inch unit. That's a great motor, but it was no match for the 440 available for a lucky few machines. So another one of the big improvements to this coupe was a serious upgrade in the engine compartment to the top dog V8. This one also received extra performance goodies such as a Quick Fuel four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, Mopar fined valve covers w/matching air topper, and an aluminum radiator. All this extra muscle makes a thunderous growl thanks to a newer stainless dual exhaust with performance X-pipe construction. And it's easy to harness this enhanced V8 thanks to the stout Torqueflight three-speed automatic transmission.
Road Runners are now an icon of how Plymouth made the muscle car available to the everyman. The horn might still go "Beep! Beep!" but the rumble this one makes going down the road means it's no kid's show. Call today!!!
