1968 Plymouth Road Runner Drag Racing Barona Drag Strip 2-15-2014
NHRA Summit Series 1968 Plymouth Road Runner Drag Racing Barona Drag Strip
Paying $50,000 to Warner Brothers to use the name and likeness of their
Road Runner cartoon character (as well as a "beep, beep" horn, which
Plymouth paid $10,000 to develop), and using the Chrysler B platform as a
base (the same as the Belvedere, Satellite, and GTX), Plymouth set out to
build a back-to-basics muscle car. Everything essential to performance and
handling was beefed-up and improved; everything nonessential was left out.
The interior was spartan with a basic cloth-and-vinyl bench seat, lacking
even carpets in early models, and few options were available - just the
basics such as power steering and front disc brakes, AM radio, air
conditioning (except with the 426 Hemi) and automatic transmission. A
floor-mounted shifter (for the four-speed) featured only a rubber boot and
no console so that a bench seat could be used. The earliest of the 1968
models were available only as 2-door pillared coupes (with a B-pillar
between the front and rear windows), but later in the model year a 2-door
"hardtop" model (sans pillar) was offered. The Road Runner of 1968-1970 was
based on the Belvedere, while the GTX was based on the Satellite, a car
with higher level trim and slight differences in the grilles and
Plymouth dealers gave away this promotional windbreaker in 1970. The "heart
with an arrowhead at bottom" design was part of Plymouth's ad campaign that
year. The Road Runner is holding a helmet with the same symbol on it.
The standard engine was an exclusive-to-the-Road Runner 383 CID (6.3 L)
Roadrunner V8 rated at 335 bhp (250 kW) and 425 lb·ft (576 N·m) of
torque. Its extra 5 hp (4 kW) rating was the result of using the radical
cam from the 440 Super Commando and a .25 raise in compression to 10.5:1
(vs. 10.25:1 with the 330 hp (246 kW) 383). When air conditioning was
ordered, the cars received the 330 hp (246 kW) version, as the radical cam
specs of the 335 bhp (250 kW) version didn't create enough vacuum to
accommodate a/c; and there were concerns of overrevving which would grenade
the RV-2 York compressor. For an extra $714, Plymouth would install a 426
CID Hemi rated at 425 bhp (317 kW) and 490 lb·ft (664 N·m) of torque.
Combined with low weight, the 6-passenger Road Runner could run the 1/4
mile in 13.5 seconds at 105 mph (169 km/h). It would prove to be one of the
best engines of the muscle car era, and the Road Runner one of the best
platforms to utilize it.
The standard equipment transmission was a four-speed manual with floor
shifter and Chrysler's three-speed TorqueFlite automatic was optional.
Early four-speed '68 Road Runners featured Inland shifters, which were
replaced by the more precise Hurst shifters during the course of the model
Plymouth expected to sell about 20,000 units in 1968; actual sales numbered
around 45,000. This placed the Road Runner third in sales among muscle cars
with only the

Pontiac GTO and Chevy's SS-396 Chevelle outselling it. Dodge debuted the
Road Runner's cousin, the Super Bee, as a mid-1968 offering after seeing
Plymouth's success with the Road Runner, along with demands from Dodge
dealers for their own low-priced muscle car as the Dodge Boys started the
model year with the higher-priced Charger R/T and Coronet R/T - both of
which were priced similar or higher than the Plymouth GTX.BARONA 2014
