Let's not waste any time on this brilliant Vitamin C Orange 1970 Plymouth.
Not only is it a 100% matching numbers V-code Road Runner, and the earliest
documented 1970 hardtop built. It also carries a rare aluminum intake
manifold that was factory installed as a leftover from A12 production and
presents a fresh frame-up restoration which provided all the necessary
finishing touches to perfectly complement its immaculate body and spotless
undercarriage. That's right Chrysler fans; this is another one of those
off-the-charts amazing Mopar muscle cars that your friends here at RK
Motors Charlotte love to find and offer exclusively to you!
The color change from Burnt Orange to Vitamin C is completely
understandable; after all, why have a Road Runner without the high-impact
color? The body is 100% original sheetmetal, and has been refinished to
better than new standards with great gaps and a ton of block sanding. I
don't know that we've seen a car this straight in a long time, and the
Vitamin C paint seems to emphasize how nice it really is. The Performance
Hood Treatment and dust stripes along the flanks have been expertly
installed, and the orientation of the dust decals is correct (look closely
at the next Road Runner you see and you'll discover how easy it is to get
it wrong). That cool Air Grabber hood is fully functional and the black
Go-Wing out back is a nice touch.
Under the car's orange hood you'll find its original, fully restored and
highly detailed 440 Six Pack V8m which wears a correct 2536430-9 casting
number, a July 24th of 1969 casting date and a correct partial VIN. The
intake is painted, as it should be on a Road Runner, but is indeed an
aluminum A12 unit underneath, with a 1969 dated letter from Chrysler
informing owners of this fact. That big air cleaner looks intimidating
covering those three carburetors, and is properly detailed with a fresh
coat of paint and a correct set of decals. Hoses and clamps are correct,
and like the potent A12 cars, this one carries no performance-robbing
accessories like power steering or power brakes—this is a MAN's car all
the way through! The Exhaust manifolds
are in spectacular shape with no rust and almost no pitting, and details
like the washer fluid bottle and Road Runner horn are brand new.
Underneath the car, an original heavy duty Torqueflite 3-speed automatic
transmission drives an original 8.75-inch Sure Grip rear that's equipped
with tall 3.55 gears. In fact, that rear end is so authentic that it still
carries its original clip tag. The floors are covered in original
undercoating that has been nicely touched up for show, and looks tidy and
clean. The suspension features correct fasteners and hardware, and again,
is 100% original. The brakes have been rebuilt and stop the car
confidently, although you need to give the pedal a good shove just like any
car with manual brakes. And a correct dual Exhaust system has been recently installed to
give the big 440 a deep voice that doesn't get obnoxiously loud when all
six barrels are wide open. Wheels are the original Rallyes wearing F60-15
Goodyear Polyglas GT tires.
Inside, a fully restored black vinyl interior is simply spectacular, and
not surprisingly, goes very nicely with the car's Vitamin C bodywork. Those
are the original seats which have been wrapped in new black and gray
covers, new door panels which have been sandwiched between black door
frames and new stainless trim, and a fresh black which dash which is full
of unrestored and fully functional gauges; even the tic-toc-tach works
properly. Like the A12 cars before it, this one is built to go fast above
all else, so there's a bench with a column-shifted automatic to save some
weight. In front of the driver, a correct black steering wheel displays a
cool Road Runner horn button. And new carpeted floor mats have been
installed to keep the new black carpets looking as fresh as the day they
left the factory.

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!
