MOPAR FUN, 383 V8, 4 SPEED, PWR STEER, SMOOTH RUNNING, GREAT COLORS, VALUE!
High performance with affordable pricing has always been the Road Runner's calling card. Today, the lower production numbers of Mopars make these highly sought-after collectables. This particular 1969 Plymouth Road Runner offers a 383 cubic inch big block, four-on-the-floor, and a comfortable center console interior. So it's everything you want at a gone tomorrow price.
This car is a hero's prize as it was given a light restoration by a Navy vet for a retirement ceremony. So the appeal of the Road Runner goes well beyond price. You see it in the chiseled sheetmetal that has survived the test of time. It has a look that's unmistakably Mopar without any apologies needed. The vivid red paint means this coupe makes an instant impression, especially with the glossy black hood stripes. The raised line along the quarter panel is razor sharp, gaps are quite good, and the correct badges were used throughout to retain that personality that defined the fun Mopar muscle cars of the period. The chrome bumpers are a great exercise in '60s shine, and just so the sides don't feel left out, the torque thrust-style wheels are shimmering beacons, too.
The black vinyl interior pairs well with the exterior red on the outside. These were midsize muscle cars, but that designation in the '60s means full-size comfort today. So there's plenty of room to carry four other family and friends, but you don't need any of them to have fun with this Road Runner. The bucket seats, center console, and Hurst shifter really let you know this is a performance machine at first impression. Beyond the three-spoke sports steering wheel is the original gauge package with an auxiliary readout mounted below the dash so you can know everything that's going on in the engine bay.
But the real reason you want to own a Road Runner is the big block 383 under the hood. Painted in Hemi Orange with a familiar black air cleaner and those cool exhaust manifolds, it looks suitably racy. The V8 idles nicely before you're ready to unleash the full sound and fury that comes from the control of the four-speed manual transmission, and the rumble of the dual exhaust. Out on the road this total package delivers smile-inducing acceleration, and that wave of big block torque that made these cars so popular with young buyers in the '60s. Plus, back then you didn't have the modern grip of the BF Goodrich T/A tires that are on the car now.
The Road Runner name and cartoon graphics inside and out make people love this car just for showing up. But the real secret on this one is the big block and four-speed, meaning you were already grinning ear-to-ear by the time you arrived. So don't let this affordable Mopar slip through your fingers.
