SLICK PAINT, 440 V8, AUTO, FRESH RESTO, PWR BRAKES & STEERING, VERY CLEAN, MOPAR
This black on black 1971 Road Runner gives some serious sinister attitude to this car's whimsically fun nature. With the big motor to back up its appearance, this bird doesn't spread its wings; it flexes its muscles.
Black is beautiful. That's why this one was switched over from a see-you-coming red to a much more stealthy hue. In fact, only those who take a closer look at this coupe will see the cool matte black strobe stripe decals running down the rear pillar. The only reason these graphics can be seen is because the slickness of the black paint job gives it a shine that rivals the brightwork. The Road Runner was given its new fuselage styling in '71, which hid the front end behind a chrome bumper surround. The nose shields the headlights to make them look like a criminal trying to hide his face in a hoodie. Check out the grill area with the yellow inboard headlights, what a great touch. Pulling up behind someone at a stoplight definitely makes for a sight in their rear view mirror. And the callouts on the hood hint that this is one Mopar not to be messed with. Out back you see the same effect, where the top half of the rear beholds darkness with the decklid and spoiler. It's only on the lower half that you find shiny chrome with integrated taillights and chrome exhaust tips. This could hide in the shadows waiting to pounce if it were not for the attention-grabbing American Racing Torq Thrust wheels. This set is 17-inches in the front and 18-inches in the rear to help give the coupe an even more menacing stance.
The interior is just as fashionably dark as the exterior. The new carpet, headliner, and seat covers keep everything looking midnight fresh. There's a new set of gauges mounted on top of the dash for a contemporary heads-up feeling showing fuel and temperature. Another modern upgrade is the retro style AM/FM stereo that's iPod compatible so you can still play your modern tunes. But it's the original options that really make this Road Runner desirable. The high-backed vinyl bucket seats have enough padding for long-haul comfort but fit your body better than any bench. The center console is another sought-after piece because its angular design does an attractive job of filling the space in-between the seats, but also it's in the perfect position to rest your arm while holding onto the floor-mounted automatic transmission. This panel has the dark wood insets that match the dashboard for a touch of class and color. Another eye-catcher that breaks up the darkness is the original Road Runner cartoon emblem in the center of the original three-spoke steering wheel.
Did you think we didn't see the writing on the hood? Those 440 callouts, and hood pins, are a warning to those that this Road Runner might just be a hawk in disguise. It's powered by a monster 440 Magnum out of a later model Mopar (Bluesmobile anyone?). The V8 has been upgraded with a four-barrel Edelbrock carburetor and electric choke. If this motor looks especially clean in the engine bay, it's because the whole setup was rebuilt less than 1,000 miles ago. This big V8 has a throaty dual exhaust that makes a far more manly tone than just "beep-beep". By the way, the purple horn does that for you. As much as this Road Runner looks like its ready to turn Wile E Coyote into a speed bump, there's obedient side to this wild child. This coupe comes with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and Pirelli P Zero tires for exceptional grip.
Road Runners have always offered great power and at good price, but this one goes one step further. It offers the right touches and a menacing look to be a truly intimating muscle car. Mopars certainly don't stay in our showroom long...Call now!!
