Envisioned by its owner as the perfect mix of classic muscle car attitude
and first class modern performance, this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner is one
of the finest Mopar pro-tourers we've ever featured!
This Road Runner's complete rotisserie restoration began when Steve Koepke
of Classic Ventures in Woodstock, Illinois meticulously stripped its solid
original body, welded up a set of high quality quarters and block sanded
every one of its facets until he had a smooth, consistent canvas. Once that
canvas was fully prepped from top to bottom, a slick coat of Charcoal Gray
urethane was expertly applied under bright red, horizontal pin stripes and
buffed to the kind of brilliant wet-look shine that can only be achieved
with today's advanced paint technology. The result is one super slick Mopar
muscle car which wraps brutal performance in killer good looks!
Raise the wide, Charcoal hood and you'll find a killer 500 cubic inch
monster block which takes this Mopar from 'very appealing' to 'MUST HAVE'.
At the top of that engine, a simple chrome breather funnels wind from a
re-usable filter element to a giant Demon 850 carburetor that's juiced by
fresh stainless fuel lines. At the base of that carburetor, an Indy dual
plane intake sends a rich air/fuel mixture into aluminum Indy 440EZ-1
cylinder heads that are equipped with both Crane Cams hydraulic roller
lifters and Harland Sharp roller rocker arms. Those heads are bolted to a
familiar 440 block that's been bored 0.30 over and equipped with a complete
Eagle stroker kit which includes an Eagle steel crank, Eagle H-beam
connecting rods, SRP pistons with Speed Pro rings and Clevite bearings. The
car's massive 11 to 1 compression is managed by a Competition hydraulic
roller camshaft that's hooked to a Cloyes timing chain. And spent gases are
efficiently expelled through a slick set of TTI ceramic coated long tube
headers. Fire is supplied by an MSD Pro-billet distributor which shoots
sparks through high performance Taylor plug wires. And cooling comes
courtesy of a heavy duty aluminum radiator which sits in front of two quick
spinning electric puller fans.
Behind the big bore engine you'll find a slick shifting Centerforce
hydraulic clutch that's connected to a Tremec 5-speed transmission and a
stalwart Ford nine inch limited slip rear end which is complete with a
Strange aluminum center section, Strange axle shafts and new 3.73 gears.
Naturally, the car's old-school front torsion bar and rear leaf spring
suspension has been exchanged for a more competent independent front, four
link rear set up. And that new suspension is augmented with tubular control
arms, a thick front sway bar, adjustable QA1 coil over shocks, fresh power
rack and pinion steering and a Wilwood brake system which includes 11 inch
slotted discs at all four corners. At the center of the car, custom
fabricated, and custom welded, subframe connectors ensure the buff engine's
ample torque doesn't manifest itself as unfortunate twist. And at the
corners of the car, power flows through a sweet set of 18 inch, solid
aluminum wheels that are wrapped in aggressive 245/40 front and 285/40 rear
BF Goodrich G-Force T/A radials.
Open this Plymouth's big, solid doors and sit down inside a cockpit where
the timeless good looks of American muscle meld seamlessly with tasteful
upgrades and modern conveniences. The custom leather and suede seats, which
were supplied by Addison Auto Interiors of Addison, Illinois, are firm and
feel much more upscale than traditional Mopar hardware. At the bottom of
those seats, fresh Maroon carpet props a chrome Hurst shifter under a faux
carbon fiber pistol grip handle. In front of the seats the car's pristine
Maroon dash hangs a custom gauge panel, which is complete with stylish Auto
Meter American Muscle gauges, beside a remote controlled Kenwood CD player
and traditional buttons for the car's heat and air conditioning system. At
the sides of the seats, custom Maroon and Black door panels hang pliable
armrests between fresh stainless trim, new chrome window cranks and bright
chrome door handles. And in front of the driver, a familiar Mopar Tuff
Wheel spins around a rebuilt original steering column.

1969 Plymouth Road Runner
The Plymouth Road Runner was a performance car built by the Plymouth
division of the Chrysler Corporation in the United States between 1968 and
1980. In 1968, the first muscle cars were moving away from their roots as
relatively cheap, fast cars as they gained options. Although Plymouth
already had a performance car in the GTX, designers decided to go back to
the drawing board and reincarnate the original muscle car concept. Plymouth
wanted a car able to run 14-second times in the quarter mile and sell for
less than US$3000. Both goals were met, and the low-cost muscle car hit the
The 1969 model made some slight changes such as tail lights and grille,
side marker lights, optional bucket seats, and new Road Runner decals. All
were 383 engine cars, except for ten 426ci Hemi convertible cars. An Air
Grabber option (N96 code) was introduced this year. The Plymouth Road
Runner was named Motor Trend "Car of the Year" for 1969.
This car was previously owned by a retired Chrysler employee. He spent 31
years at Chrysler building "show cars". This car was frame on restored,
assembled and painted by the same team that handled Chryslers show cars.
This is a one of a Road Runner that does not come along very often. It's
ready to be driven anywhere, and fast!

Our latest offering is this 472 Hemi powered 1969 Plymouth Road Runner.
Custom built from its Cross Ram intake to its Boyd Coddington rear wheels,
this car is a bad to the bone classic that's fun to look at and even more
fun to drive.
Benefitting from a professional frame up restoration in 2006, this Road
Runner retains all of its original panels. Once work was performed to
ensure the car was smooth and its sculpted body made the perfect
impression, the car was bathed in Mopar R3 red. The result is a perfect
'long and low' Road Runner profile with factory close gaps, exceptionally
straight panels and power actuated doors that close with a confident thunk.
New chrome trim is kept to a minimum to highlight the cars intentionally
simplistic design and new Road Runner decals and script emblems on the
doors add just enough detail to complete the look. Up front, the car
features a straight grille with new lighting and a new chrome bumper. Out
back, new '69 Road Runner exclusive tail lights and a new chrome bumper
combine with a new road runner decal, a new Road Runner badge and a
discrete little Hemi badge for the not so discrete motor. New glass all
around and a traditional flat black Road Runner A-12 style hood featuring a
custom red "472 Hemi" decal on its scoop top everything off.
Pull the hood up to reveal the incredible Ray Barton 472 Hemi Cross Ram
engine. Sitting on top of the aluminum Cross Ram intake is two Holley 770
carburetors that feed air and fuel to Hemi Stage V aluminum heads for a
very impressive 10.5:1 compression ratio. A Be Cool aluminum radiator,
complete with an electric cooling fan, is coupled to the engine via billet
hose connectors and a deep sump oil pan supplies plenty of oil. An MSD coil
utilizes a billet distributor to send sparks through Moroso wires while a
chrome Powermaster alternator, a billet serpentine belt system and ceramic
long tube headers round out the performance package. A trick billet master
cylinder complements two chrome air cleaners, billet wire looms and braided
hoses to add a finished look to the top of the motor.
Underneath the car a McLeod hydraulic clutch mates to a Tremec 5-speed
transmission to throw that massive Hemi power to a narrowed Moser
Engineering Dana 60 rear end. That rear end runs 325/50/15 BF Goodrich
G-Force drag radials which are neatly tucked under the Road Runners rear
quarters. Keeping those drag radials connected to the pavement is welded
monoleaf springs, welded sub frame connectors and CalTracs traction bars.
Up front the motor rides on an aftermarket K member and a Bill Riley
Motorsports AlterKtion front end kit that utilizes 15x7 Boyd Coddington
Smoothie wheels with 215/70/15 BF Goodrich radials for traction. A power
rack and pinion, tubular control arms, a Bill Riley Motorsports sway bar,
and QA1 Motorsports coilover shocks combine to provide modern handling
while Wilwood front brakes and Stainless Steel rear brakes are aided by an
electric vacuum pump bring all that power to a safe halt.
Hit the remote door popper and sit down inside the car where new bucket
seats wear custom black Ultraleather upholstery with suede leather inserts.
In front of you, the custom dash features AutoMeter Pro Comp gauges, air
conditioning and a Sony Xplod CD player. Custom door panels complement a
long custom wrapped console with a custom wood insert which houses controls
for the power windows and a traditional pistol grip shifter. A billet
steering wheel connected to a tilt column complements billet pedals which
hang above modern carpet installed over Dynamat insulation.
The documentation for this car includes two huge binders full of
information about the build which include receipts, part numbers,
installation instructions, a Dyno sheet, and an official
appraisal of the car.
This car has it all: looks to kill, power that never stops and a list of
custom components that would take a builder years to duplicate and
assemble. Where else can you find this combination of power and killer
looks? Call today!
