FULL RESTO, 440 V8, AUTO, 3 SPEED AUTO, GREAT PAINT, EXC INTERIOR, CLASSIC MOPAR
When you dream of Mopar muscle, isn't this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner what it looks like? This is the more desirable hardtop coupe version that blends the pillarless doorframe with a blocky muscular stance. Plus, this one has the right kind of modern touches to make everyone take notice.
You could get bronze from the factory, but it never looked as good as this. The paint on this coupe is shinier than a new penny, but it doesn't lose its mean attitude thanks to the satin black hood stripes. The custom wheels match this darker design, which just adds to the aggressive attitude. This look is a true standout in the crowd of animated colors that most others put on their cartoon bird coupes. But this one still keeps plenty of its cheery charm. The wide B-body design means the chrome bumpers look like a huge grin at both ends on the car, and of course, it wouldn't be a true Plymouth Road Runner without the Warner Brothers bird making a speedy getaway on each door.
Road Runners were about offering serious power in a budget-friendly Plymouth, so it's always nice to see some extras in the interior. Bucket seats and a thick wood steering wheel make for an especially nice cruising machine for the driver. Plus, there are the nice modern touches such as the aftermarket oil pressure gauge and the AM/FM/CD player. But overall, the sinister attitude of the exterior seems to creep inside. A rich shade of black covers the seats, door cards, headliner, and dash to make this feel like permanent midnight. That's no accident, because the horn might still go "Beep! Beep!", but the rumble from the exhaust means this is no kid's show.
Every Road Runner was a V8 muscle car, but not every bird was created equal. This one comes with the largest motor Plymouth was producing at the time, the mighty 440 cubic-inch big block. One look at it underneath the hood, and you can tell there was serious money spent on this coupe. Not only was this motor a product of a beautiful and meticulous build 300 miles ago, but also it was set into an engine bay that again, looks better than anything that came out of the factory. In other words, you'll for sure be leaving the hood open at all the car shows. While this monster motor can make plenty of power on its own, it was also given some performance upgrades such as an MSD ignition, performance headers, and a Flomaster exhaust system. It all hooks to the street just fine thanks to modern Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires. You don't even have to be afraid to cruise all day in this beastly bird thanks to the three-speed automatic transmission and front disc brakes.
This is a seriously nice coupe, and the quality only adds to its sinister looks. It's intimidating, but once you get over it, you'll also find a beautifully built piece of Mopar muscle. It's no secret quality is not lacking in this build...call now!!
