This is the most recent chapter of the famous Hemi vs. Buick shoootout,
with the added twist that the winner of Hemi vs Buick squares off against
an L88 Corvette. The shootout was hosted by Hot Rod Magazine, and was run
at Cordova IL in 2006. The cars are required to be compliant with stock
appearing rules as defined by the F.A.S.T. Musclecar racing series
(www.fastracesorg), with the exception of racing slicks being allowed.
1967 GTX Survivor vs Corvette
Unrestored 1967 440 GTX drag racing for the first time in 38 years. This
1967 440 4 speed Plymouth GTX was stored in a warehouse in 1973. I
purchased it in 1998 and was the first person to drive it on the road since
'73. I put it in a shed awaiting restoration 9 years ago. On the day this
video was taken (October 30, 2011) it literally had dirt dauber nests and
cob webs still in the engine compartment.
1969 Roadrunner Show Car
1969 Plymouth Roadrunner
If you have paid any attention to Barrett Jackson, Mecum and the other
nationally acclaimed auctions you have probably noticed that you can't go
wrong with a mopar. These cars are EXTREMELY popular and continue to just
become more rare as time goes on. Of them the Plymouth Roadrunner is a
body style that never fails to draw a crowd. The 1969 Roadrunner you see
here delivers that classic muscle car look of the 60s but is fully loaded
with all the best components you can find. The "official" restoration was
done between 2000 and 2003 but the car is continually worked on, updated
and upgraded. The body is very straight and topped with some of the nicest
pearl Burgundy paint you have ever seen. It was a custom blend of House of
Kolor Candy Apple Wild Cherry with Red Ice and Pearl which all works
together to create one of the deepest paint jobs around. The hood is
painted Gloss Black with White Ice and pearl and was just as cleanly done
as the rest. Everything was clear coated 4 times for the perfect finish!
That combined with the perfect chrome gives you a car that never stops
shining! All of the stainless trim is mounted cleanly and shines just as
well. The glass is all good and has a nice dark tint that just adds to the
tough look of this classic. On the passenger side and driver side window
you will find custom Roadrunner graphics that were very nicely etched into
the glass. It has a great stance with the slight rake that looks perfect.
It rides around on polished Cragar SS wheels with fresh tires.
The beauty of this classic doesn't stop with the exterior so pull off the
hood and check out the very nicely done 440 CI motor. If the paint and
body don't grab their attention the engine sure will. It was all
professionally built and was bored .30 over and honed for Jegs Plasma Molly
Rings. It also utilizes Jegs forged speed Pro pistons and rods. Other
high performance components include the Crower solid lifters, roller
rockers, and full race cam. The heads have a 5 angle valve job and were
ported, polished, and matched prior to being installed. They are a 67
close chambered to run unleaded gasoline. Topping it all off is a very
clean Edelbrock finned air cleaner which sits atop the dual Edelbrock
Performer series 600 AFB. Under these you will find the Edelbrock mini
high rise intake manifold. Other important features under the hood include
a Holley "red" electric fuel pump, MSD 6 series electronic ignition, MSD
distributor, MSD high performance blaster 2 coil, all Cool Flex hoses, and
Optima gel battery. The car has the sound to match the looks which is
provided by the Doug Thorley headers and 3" X tube dual Exhaust into dual Flowmaster single chamber
mufflers. To handle the power a beefed up 727 automatic transmission with
3500 RPM TCI torque converter is in place. The suspension system utilizes
high jacker air shocks with leaf springs and chrome traction bars in rear.
The interior of the car was all custom finished out but utilizes the
original style dash. It along with the doors were painted using the same
gloss Black as the hood. The dual high back bucket seats are nicely
covered in Black and have custom embroidered Roadrunners on the headrests.
In between these is a fully custom center console to house the B&M mega
ratchet style shifter and extra gauges/switches. An after market AM/FM/CD
player has been added which provides a great sound. The polished Grant
steering wheel is nicely mounted to the column and uses an after market
power steering system.
Other very cool custom features include the hood scoop LED lights and added
PA system for the Roadrunner at car shows. There are only so many ways to
put it...THIS IS ONE AWESOME MUSCLE CAR!

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.
