1970 Plymouth Road Runner

Nice car, great condition! Note the pistol grip handle for the gearshift! Mopar figured out the secret ingredient to selling hot cars...base model, big engine, special trim! How could you go wrong?

1962 Ford Thunderbird Sports Roadster
A mechanically very sophisticated car. This body style was in mid run, and 1963 would be the last year for the style. Note the hash marks in the rear quarterpanels..next year they would be in the doors. Note the convertible top lowered into the trunk cavity. I'm sure luggage space was limited by this somewhat, but probably not as much as those cars where the steel top folded into the trunk When sitting in those seats, you felt surrounded by the instrument panel...a veritable cockpit. The very large tailights completed the rocket/airplane feel!





1963 1/2 Falcon Futura hardtop
This "scatback" version was introduced mid year...and has a more streamlined appearance than the formal roofline (Thunderbird inspired) that preceeded it. This one looks in showroom condition. This sports air conditioning, nice bucket seats and a console.





1957 Chevy Bel Air convertible
I had videoed this car some months ago, but felt it needed more exposure. The car is flawless..beautiful paint and interior! That shade of green was very popular at the time! The "continental kit" rear spare and the fender skirts complete the look of the time!





1970 Plymouth Fury Sport Suburban station wagon
They didn't make them much bigger than this! Woodgrain applique to mimic wood. Note the rear opening door. The third row of seating faces the rear, a fairly common technique at the time, mandatating entrance from the rear of the vehicle. This is a reissue of an old video, who knows about whether it is still for sale.

1970 Plymouth Road Runner Classic Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales
http://www.ClassicCarBuyingSecrets.com Click now for an instant download on "How to Avoid the 7 Deadliest Mistakes of Buying a Classic Car Online"! Let's not waste any time on this brilliant green 1970 Road Runner. It's a 440 with a Six Pack, and it's probably the fastest car we have in the shop right now. It has been given a recent restoration, and the condition of the body and undercarriage is jaw-dropping. This is an off-the-charts amazing car. Why have a Road Runner without the high-impact color? The lime green paint is stunning. The straight, clean and solid body is wave free and rust free. All of the gaps, margins, panels, and door and trunk lips are clean, just the way you want them. The flat black hood and dust decal stripes along the flanks have been expertly installed. The chrome and stainless is extremely clean, and looks appropriate on the car. Honestly, it jumps out at you in the photos, doesn't it? Under the hood you'll find the 440 Six Pack engine, fully restored and highly detailed. The casting number on the motor is 2536430.10. That big air cleaner looks intimidating covering those three carburetors, and is properly detailed with a fresh coat of paint and a correct decal set. Take off that air cleaner and check out the Six Pack Holley carbs, as well as the Edelbrock intake. This Road Runner carries no performance-robbing accessories like power steering or power brakes—this is a man's car all the way through. Details like the radiator, Mopar battery, and Road Runner horn look to be brand new. The transmission is a 727 driving the 8.75" rear with 3:73 gears. The rust free, patch free floors are covered in the same paint color as the body, and looks tidy and clean. The suspension features new ball joints, sway bar links and new shocks. The springs have been painted and look brand new. The frame members have visible stamped part numbers, that's how clean they are. O2 sensors, a new gas tank, new fuel lines and new brake lines were also included in the restoration. The drum brakes stop the car confidently, although you need to give the pedal a good shove just like any car with manual brakes. A stainless steel Exhaust system with Dynamax mufflers has been recently installed that gives the big 440 a deep voice that doesn't get obnoxiously loud when all six barrels are wide open. Optional Dog Dish hubcaps sit on body matched painted wheels. The black and silver interior is simply spectacular, and surprisingly it goes very nicely with the green bodywork. The seats, door panels, carpets, headliner and the dash are all in great shape. The standard gauges are present, as well as an aftermarket column mounted tach and dual aftermarket water temperature and oil gauges mounted under the dash. A bench with a column-shifted automatic saves some weight. In back, the painted trunk has a new mat as well. Beautifully finished inside and out, it's ready to show at high-level events where it might be the subject of considerable speculation. This is just a cool car in great colors that is neck-snapping fast. What more do you want? Call today! 7 Days a Week 248-974-9513 This will NOT last!!! www.vanguardmotorsales.com





1970 Plymouth RoadRunner 440 6 pack
1970 brought new front and rear end looks to the basic 1968 body, and it would prove to be another success. Updates included a new grille, leather seats, hood, front fenders, quarter panels, single-piston Kelsey-Hayes disc brakes (improved from the rather small-rotor Bendix 4 piston calipers of '68 - '69 ), and even non-functional scoops in the rear quarters.[1] The design and functionality of the Air Grabber option was changed this year to increase both efficiency and the "intimidation factor". A switch below the dash actuated a vacuum servo to slowly raise the forward-facing scoop, exposing shark-like teeth on either side. "High Impact" colors, with names like In-Violet, Moulin Rouge, and Vitamin C, were options available for that year. The 1970 Road Runner and GTX continued to be attractive and popular cars. The engine lineup was left unchanged although a heavy-duty three-speed manual became the standard transmission, relegating the four-speed to the option list along with the TorqueFlite automatic. This was to be the second and last year of the Road Runner convertible, with only 834 made. These cars are considered more valuable than the 1969 version due to a better dash, high impact colors and more options including the new high-back bucket seats shared with other Chrysler products which featured built-in headrests. The relatively popular 440 Six Barrel was relegated to option status for 1970. The 1969 "M" Code Edelbrock aluminum intake was replaced by a factory-produced cast iron piece; however, due to a porous casting, there was a recall early in the iron intake-equipped 440+6 run, and these were supposed to be replaced with the more-desirable Edelbrock intake from the year prior. Sales of the '70 Road Runner dropped by more than 50 percent over the previous year to around 41,000 units (about 1,000 ahead of Pontiac's GTO but still about 13,000 units behind Chevy's Chevelle SS-396/454). This would also be the last year of the road runner convertible with 834 total production. Only 3 hemi (R) code road runner convertibles were built. The declining sales of Road Runner and other muscle cars were the result of a move by insurance companies to add surcharges for muscle car policies - making insurance premiums for high-performance vehicles a very expensive proposition. Also, Plymouth introduced another bargain-basement muscle car for 1970, the compact Duster 340 which was powered by a 275-horsepower 340 Magnum V8 which in the lighter-weight compact A-body could perform as well if not better than a 383 Road Runner. Furthermore, the Duster 340 was priced even lower than the Road Runner and its smaller engine qualified it for much lower insurance rates. The Chevy engine comment was a joke.

http://omaha.craigslist.org/cto/2223157217.html 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner 383 4 sp pistol grip numbers match unrestored (Omaha Metro) Date: 2011-02-19, 11:37AM CST Reply to: sale-b7tha-2223157217@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?] http://hackwith.com/mycar.htm 383 HP engine (stamped right on the block) 335 horse-power, pistol grip 4 speed, numbers matching, less than 60k orig. miles. Acquired on April 07, 1995, stored inside at all times, never driven in the rain since stored. THIS CAR IS NOT RESTORED. It runs fine and is drivable. Interior is not the original but this thing has amazing potential to become a real show piece or nice daily driver depending on what money you spend on it. Make an offer. I reserve the right to refuse any offer for any reason. I am attached to this car and want someone to restore it. It's burnt orange like an old penny. 2 door true hard-top, no window posts.

Daredevil Driving Stunts in a 1936 Plymouth: "Trial by Torture" 1935 Chrysler Corporation
more at http://cars.quickfound.net/ Toughness of the 1936 Plymouth is demonstrated by showing how components, structures, and the entire vehicle are "torture tested." Includes several good shots of deliberately rolling cars, and daredevil driving by "Hell Drivers' such as Lucky Teter and Jimmy Lynch. Public domain film from the Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plymouth_(automobile) Plymouth was a marque of automobiles based in the United States, produced by the Chrysler Corporation and its successor DaimlerChrysler. Production was discontinued on June 29, 2001 in the United States. The Plymouth automobile was introduced on July 7, 1928. It was Chrysler Corporation's first entry in the low-priced field, which at the time was already dominated by Chevrolet and Ford. Plymouths were actually priced slightly higher than their competition, but offered all standard features such as internal expanding hydraulic brakes that the competition did not provide. Plymouths were originally sold exclusively through Chrysler dealerships. The logo featured a rear view of the ship Mayflower which landed at Plymouth Rock. However, the Plymouth brand name came from Plymouth Binder Twine, chosen by Joe Frazer for its popularity among farmers... The origins of Plymouth can be traced back to the Maxwell automobile. When Walter P. Chrysler took over control of the troubled Maxwell-Chalmers car company in the early 1920s, he inherited the Maxwell as part of the package. After he used the company's facilities to help create and launch the Chrysler car in 1924, he decided to create a lower-priced companion car. So for 1926 the Maxwell was reworked and re-badged as the low-end Chrysler "52" model. In 1928, the "52" was once again redesigned to create the Chrysler-Plymouth Model Q. The "Chrysler" portion of the nameplate was dropped with the introduction of the Plymouth Model U in 1929. Great Depression, 1940s and 1950s While the original purpose of the Plymouth was to serve a lower-end marketing niche, during the Great Depression of the 1930s, the marque helped significantly in ensuring the survival of the Chrysler Corporation in a decade when many other car companies failed. Beginning in 1930, Plymouths were sold by all three Chrysler divisions (Chrysler, DeSoto, and Dodge). Plymouth sales were a bright spot during this dismal automotive period, and by 1931 Plymouth rose to the number three spot among all cars. In 1931 with the Model PA, the company introduced floating power and boasted, "The economy of a four; the smoothness of a six." In 1933 Chrysler decided to catch up with Ford and Chevrolet with respect to engine cylinder count. The 190 cu in version of Chrysler's flathead-6 engine was equipped with a downdraft carburetor and installed in the new 1933 Plymouth PC, introduced on 17 November 1932. However, Chrysler had reduced the PC's wheelbase from 112 in (284.5 cm) to 107 in (271.8 cm), and the car sold poorly. By April 1933, the Dodge division's Model DP chassis, with a 112 in (284.5 cm) wheelbase, was put under the PC body with DP front fenders, hood, and radiator shell. The model designation was advanced to PD and the car was marketed as the "DeLuxe" 1933 Plymouth. This car sold very well and is the 1933 model most commonly found in collections. The PC became the 'Standard Six'. It had been the 'Plymouth Six' at introduction, and was sold through to the end of 1933, but in much lower numbers. It is consequently in the minority in collectors' hands today. In 1937, Plymouth (along with the other Chrysler makes) added safety features such as flat dash boards with recessed controls and the back of the front seat padded for the rear seat occupants. The PC was shipped overseas to Sweden, Denmark, and the UK, as well as Australia. In the UK it was sold as a 'Chrysler Kew', Kew Gardens being the location of the Chrysler factory outside London. The flathead 6 which started with the 1933 Model PC stayed in the Plymouth until the 1959 models. In 1939 Plymouth produced 417,528 vehicles, of which 5,967 were two-door convertible coupes with rumble seats. The 1939 convertible coupe was prominently featured at Chrysler's exhibit at the 1939 New York World's Fair, advertised as the first mass-production convertible with a power folding top. It featured a 201 cu in, 82 hp version of the flathead six engine. For much of its life, Plymouth was one of the top-selling American automobile brands; it together with Chevrolet and Ford were commonly referred to as the "low-priced three" marques in the American market...
