For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/lk57sqp If you're in the market for a super-clean street bruiser that you can play with and travel in for years to come, jump behind the wheel of this incredibly priced Plymouth! This slick coupe's high quality, frame-up restoration began with what appears to be a solid, damage-free body. That body's panels were painstakingly stripped, sanded and massaged to better-than-showroom condition. Once those massaged panels were correctly aligned, and the car's intimidating ambiance fully reconstructed, a smooth coat of Chrysler FE5 two-stage was laid under a correct transverse stripe. And the result is an ultra-straight, fully sorted pavement pounder that inspires comments and elicits stares every time it hits the road! Make good use of the aforementioned hood pins and you'll find a 400 cubic inch Chrysler B block that, thanks to a complete rebuild, looks as natural as a Superbird in winner's circle. Oxygen whips through the car's 'Air Grabber' hood to a Hemi Orange cleaner that feeds a big Holley carburetor and beefy Weiand intake. At the front of that intake, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor translates MSD 6AL-2 spark into fire for MSD Super Conductor plug wires. At the sides of that distributor, Edelbrock Performer RPM heads hang cast valve covers and a new Edelbrock breather over coated, long-tube headers. Cooling is supplied by a correct Chrysler radiator, which utilizes pliable hoses, an aluminum water pump and simple squeeze clamps to send water past fresh V-belts, rebuilt ancillaries and a reproduction Mopar battery. This Plymouth's chassis specs leave little question as to why Chrysler's B-body architecture was such a huge hit with performance car fans. Take a step under our lift and you'll find a tough ol' stoplight skeleton that still wears a thick layer of undercoating. Behind the thumpin' B block, a rugged A833 4-speed twists a familiar Chrysler 8.75-inch rear end around streetable, 3.23 gears. Below that proven drivetrain, a heavy duty front torsion bar and rear leaf suspension includes factory power steering, a correct sway bar and manual front disc and rear drum brakes. And power flows to the pavement through familiar, 15-inch Rallye wheels, which spin 235/60 Goodyear Eagle GTIIs in front of 255/60 Goodyear Eagle GTIIs. When you open this Road Runner's solid doors, you'll find a cockpit where legendary Mopar power melds seamlessly with a stylish, no-nonsense driving environment. At the center of the car's floors, firm front bucket and rear bench seats have been stuffed with fresh padding and topped with correct silver-piped and Plymouth-embossed covers. The car's expertly restored dash hangs rebuilt factory gauges beside a correct Chrysler Solid State radio. In front of the driver, a monochromatic steering wheel spins a silver horn ring around a cool Road Runner centerpiece. And behind the cockpit, a fully restored trunk is authentic to its refurbished jack, full-size spare and centered decklid decal. Over the past few years, some of our best sellers have been ultra-clean Mopar road warriors. They're fast. They're tons of fun. And best of all, you don't have to spend the kid's college fund to buy one! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information on this awesome Road Runner.
