For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/oj7qtp7 An 11,149-mile Road Runner that wraps a numbers-matching Hemi/4-speed drivetrain in correct Chestnut vinyl and original Gold Metallic paint? In the muscle car realm, it doesn't get much more unique than that. And if 'unique' is the name of your game, this old school Plymouth is the ideal investment grade head turner to enhance your authentic collector car ownership experience! BODYWORK/TRIM Born on October 23rd, 1970, this sedate classic makes a distinct styling statement from virtually every angle. Assembled in St. Louis, Missouri, and subjected to a good mix of low mileage and fastidious preservation, the car has remained largely original for close to 45 years. Its characteristical profile reflects original Gold Metallic single-stage that puts a sophisticated spin on Chrysler's famous Hi Impact era. A correct hood stripe, black °÷HEMI°÷ call-outs and a color-keyed spoiler highlight intricate emblems and classy brightwork. And, as far as we can tell, this coupe has never been fully disassembled, with the aforementioned owners choosing to wear the car's weathering as a badge of honor. ENGINE Lift the car's long hood and you'll find an original, 426 cubic inch Hemi V8 that's authenticated by a famous 2468330 casting number and matching partial VIN. As Plymouth's top option for power hungry gearheads, Chrysler's legendary elephant block utilizes cast iron heads, an oversquare bore, a forged steel crank, forged steel rods, forged aluminum pistons and a hydraulic cam to twist stout 10.25 to 1 compression into a stated 425 horsepower and 490 lb./ft. of torque. All that high performance hardware spins in a familiar Hemi Orange block that hangs requisite Organisol-coated valve covers over correct, low-restriction Exhaust manifolds. Cool air is supplied by a correct Fresh Air Hood, which centers a fresh Coyote Duster filter on a correct aluminum intake and correct Carter carburetors. Compression is sparked by fresh Packard Silicone Suppression cables, which are snapped onto a correct points distributor. And combustion gets cooled by a correct, 26-inch radiator that's fitted with pliable hoses via old school squeeze clamps. DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION Behind that exclusive Hemi, a stalwart A833 4-speed twists power to moderate 3.54 gears that are part of a correct Dana 60 Track Pack rear end. Below that proven drivetrain, a familiar front torsion bar and rear leaf suspension mixes factory power steering with power front disc and rear drum brakes. Opposite that chassis, solid floors appear to have survived the worst Mother Nature had to offer. Exhaust is handled by fresh, 2.5-inch pipes, which jettison cooked dinosaurs through an H-shaped crossover, throaty turbo mufflers, small resonators and slotted stainless tips. And power meets the pavement through silver Rallye wheels, which spin G60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around bright trim rings and charcoal center caps. INTERIOR Grab a seat inside this Road Runner and you'll find a correct Chestnut interior that's detailed with tasteful wood accents and bright stainless trim. The first thing you'll notice is the car's quality bench seats, which feature comfortable pleats on top of straight frames and firm foam. The second thing you'll notice is a straight dash, which wraps stylish wood applique around clean instrumentation, a correct tachometer and a correct Chrysler Multiplex stereo. And the third thing you'll notice is a clean Chestnut steering wheel, which perfectly complements a Hurst Pistol Grip shifter. If you're in the market for a one-of-a-kind car that'll be a blast on the road and a hit at the show, your search is officially over!
