I thought you'd like a look at this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner in action.
It's powered by a 383 V8, with an Edelbrock intake, 4 BBL carb, coated
headers, and Air Grabber induction. All the power is being funneled through
a hurst shifted four-speed manual back to an 8 3/4 rear. This car runs out
strong and it's in absolutely immaculate condition. It's as clean in the
engine bay and underneath the car as it is on the outside. The interior
looks showroom new as well. This car is a proven show winner as well. I hop
you find it interesting....thanks for watching!

Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

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.
