Test Driving 1969 Plymouth Road Runner 383 V8 4 BBL Four Speed
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
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!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
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

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. 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
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.
