1974 Plymouth Road Runner 426ci Hemi Twin Turbo 1300hp
By the time 1974 rolled around, the original era of the American muscle car was just about over. Thanks to the gas crunch, stricter emissions regulations and rising insurance costs, the once great muscle cars had either disappeared or turned into shells of their former selves. While these mid-1970s cars aren’t too high on the lists of most collectors, they can make for great build platforms. And as evidence I present this 1974 Plymouth Road Runner known as Skunk Works, built by Lucky 7 Speed Shop of Sutter Creek, California. Although it might be a muscle car rather than a hot rod or custom, it was one of my favorite cars at this year’s Sacramento Autorama. It’s an interesting build in the fact that it’s far from a factory restoration, but also much more original than your typical flashy pro touring build. At first glance the wheels and tires look standard too, until you realize these are actually modern-sized versions of the original Mopar rallye wheels. The tires are wide Nitto Invos, and tucked in behind the package are Wilwood disc brakes. But then you look under the hood and realize this thing is just a bit more potent than factory-spec. That’s a fuel injected Hemi displacing the same 426 cubic inches as the original street Hemi; but it’s just the beginning. There’s also a pair of 62mm turbonetics turbochargers which Boost the Hemi to a ridiculous 1,300 horsepower, or something like five times the power output of the car’s original engine.
