Lot S119 1968 Plymouth Hemi Road Runner 426 425 HP 4 Speed
Seldom does a collector-grade musclecar appear that is as original as this incredible 1968 Hemi Road Runner Hemi four speed. With a scant 14,900 miles on the odometer, it retains its original sheet metal, glass, interior and Electric Blue paint. The Road Runner Décor Group adds a steering wheel with partial horn ring, center pillar bright molding trim and a rear panel appliqué. From the exterior finish through the Spartan interior to the mighty 425 horsepower dual-quad Hemi, this rare bird's condition is as one would expect in a car with barely more than a year's average mileage. One of only 108 four-speed hardtops built in 1968, this significant car comes with the original sales contract, Certi-Card, fender tags and Galen Govier documentation. A museum or collector looking for a first-class original example of Plymouth's most important musclecar creation would be hard pressed to find a better one than this.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video Episode #157: 1968 Plymouth Road Runner 426 Hemi
Today, cars with factory-installed 426 Hemi V8s are some of the highest-valued Muscle Cars in existence. The lure of limited production quantities and the power of the 426 Hemi combine to drive the pricetags of these cars beyond the average collector. So what’s all the fuss about a Hemi Road Runner? How about quarter mile times of 13.54 @ 105 ½ MPH as logged by Car & Driver Magazine? The Hemi engine was an expensive upgrade, but it did get you a solid performer that was ready to go off the showroom floor. And at the end of the day, we like Ma Mopar’s mission to bring performance back to the common customer.

1968 Hemi Road Runner
Describes the history and performance of Plymouth Hemi Road Runners. I was lucky enough to be the first to drive a 1969 Hemi Road Runner (4 speed) after brought out of storage after over 25 years. After working for a while to get it running, it returned to life with no smoke and gained strength by the minute as it loosened up. You could feel the heritage returning.
