1970 Plymouth Road Runner

Many consider the '70 to be the toughest looking RR ever. My understanding is the car was an accident. Chrysler wanted the '71 bodies to appear in '70 but someting happened and this body was made. I'm thinking NASCAR and the Superbirds presence had something to do with it. Superbirds & 69 Daytonas did exceptionally well in 70 given an aerodynamic drag coefficient that rivals today's cars. 0.29 I think or 0.27 - can't remember right now. The '71s couldn't hold a candle to the speed and agility of the 69 Daytonas & 70 Superbirds. Corrections accepted and posted. Taken 21 October 2011.

Atlas Muscle Cars 1969 Roadrunner 440 six pack Dana disc
We finally finished this super nice1969 Road Runner, this is a full nut and bolt rotisserie resto. We started with a super straight and solid 1969 Road Runner, we took the body down to bare metal and started from scratch. Underside of the car has been coated with a rubberized bed liner for sound deadening and protection from road debris. Then we painted the top side with a really high quality base coat clear coat Black paint, we put on extra coats of clear so we would have more material to wet sand and buff to that show car finish. We put disc brakes on all four corners, tubular upper control arms and upgraded PST suspension parts. The engine is a beefed up 440 that is pushing 500 plus horse power with the 6 pack set up on it. We installed a 4 speed transmission, with a pistol grip shifter.
