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.

Plymouth GTX 440 LOUD SOUND RoadRunner V8
Plymouth GTX 440 / RoadRunner Sound - Hello and welcome to the Car Acceleration TV Channel 2014. In today's video, we want to show you a great american classic car, the Plymouth GTX 440 / RoadRunner. The V8 engine sound is really incredible. Watch this Plymouth video for cold start sound, drive scenes and listen the horn. End of 1970, the Belvedere was replaced by the Plymouth Satellite. Consequently, based on the GTX now the new model. However, this lasted only one year. Completely new was the coupé body, technically, everything remained the same. Available were still the 7.2-liter with two power ratings and the seven-liter Hemi V8. Due to sharp decline in sales of the GTX was taken as a stand-alone model in the fall of 1971 from the program, in the model years 1972 to 1974 there were but for the continuing Plymouth Road Runner GTX a package. My opinion is from this period is the most interesting of the Plymouth Cuda Barracuda model. Do you like this video?

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

Wind Tunnel Test: "43" 1971 Petty Superbird
Gary & Pam Beineke built this race version G-Series Superbird-stable mate to the K&K Daytona-a next generation, 'what-if' tribute to Petty and the '71 NASCAR season that never was. They took the car to Mooresville NC "Race City USA" to test in the A2 Wind Tunnel. Although a full scale version was never built in 1971 Chrysler performed wind tunnel development on a 3/8 scale model until NASCAR made a rule change for the 71 season that would ban the wing cars from competition. Gary Romberg is the technical director at AeroDyn & A2, and also one of the original aerodynamicists that worked on the wing cars back when they were developed at Chrysler. Notes and data from the 3/8 model were donated to the Wing Warriors Car Club and the Beineke's built their car based off data results from those wind tunnel tests in the 70's. Romberg was on hand to see a project he worked on over 40 years ago get built into a full scale version.
