Our latest offering is this 472 Hemi powered 1969 Plymouth Road Runner.
Custom built from its Cross Ram intake to its Boyd Coddington rear wheels,
this car is a bad to the bone classic that's fun to look at and even more
fun to drive.
Benefitting from a professional frame up restoration in 2006, this Road
Runner retains all of its original panels. Once work was performed to
ensure the car was smooth and its sculpted body made the perfect
impression, the car was bathed in Mopar R3 red. The result is a perfect
'long and low' Road Runner profile with factory close gaps, exceptionally
straight panels and power actuated doors that close with a confident thunk.
New chrome trim is kept to a minimum to highlight the cars intentionally
simplistic design and new Road Runner decals and script emblems on the
doors add just enough detail to complete the look. Up front, the car
features a straight grille with new lighting and a new chrome bumper. Out
back, new '69 Road Runner exclusive tail lights and a new chrome bumper
combine with a new road runner decal, a new Road Runner badge and a
discrete little Hemi badge for the not so discrete motor. New glass all
around and a traditional flat black Road Runner A-12 style hood featuring a
custom red "472 Hemi" decal on its scoop top everything off.
Pull the hood up to reveal the incredible Ray Barton 472 Hemi Cross Ram
engine. Sitting on top of the aluminum Cross Ram intake is two Holley 770
carburetors that feed air and fuel to Hemi Stage V aluminum heads for a
very impressive 10.5:1 compression ratio. A Be Cool aluminum radiator,
complete with an electric cooling fan, is coupled to the engine via billet
hose connectors and a deep sump oil pan supplies plenty of oil. An MSD coil
utilizes a billet distributor to send sparks through Moroso wires while a
chrome Powermaster alternator, a billet serpentine belt system and ceramic
long tube headers round out the performance package. A trick billet master
cylinder complements two chrome air cleaners, billet wire looms and braided
hoses to add a finished look to the top of the motor.
Underneath the car a McLeod hydraulic clutch mates to a Tremec 5-speed
transmission to throw that massive Hemi power to a narrowed Moser
Engineering Dana 60 rear end. That rear end runs 325/50/15 BF Goodrich
G-Force drag radials which are neatly tucked under the Road Runners rear
quarters. Keeping those drag radials connected to the pavement is welded
monoleaf springs, welded sub frame connectors and CalTracs traction bars.
Up front the motor rides on an aftermarket K member and a Bill Riley
Motorsports AlterKtion front end kit that utilizes 15x7 Boyd Coddington
Smoothie wheels with 215/70/15 BF Goodrich radials for traction. A power
rack and pinion, tubular control arms, a Bill Riley Motorsports sway bar,
and QA1 Motorsports coilover shocks combine to provide modern handling
while Wilwood front brakes and Stainless Steel rear brakes are aided by an
electric vacuum pump bring all that power to a safe halt.
Hit the remote door popper and sit down inside the car where new bucket
seats wear custom black Ultraleather upholstery with suede leather inserts.
In front of you, the custom dash features AutoMeter Pro Comp gauges, air
conditioning and a Sony Xplod CD player. Custom door panels complement a
long custom wrapped console with a custom wood insert which houses controls
for the power windows and a traditional pistol grip shifter. A billet
steering wheel connected to a tilt column complements billet pedals which
hang above modern carpet installed over Dynamat insulation.
The documentation for this car includes two huge binders full of
information about the build which include receipts, part numbers,
installation instructions, a Dyno sheet, and an official
appraisal of the car.
This car has it all: looks to kill, power that never stops and a list of
custom components that would take a builder years to duplicate and
assemble. Where else can you find this combination of power and killer
looks? Call today!
