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!
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.

I thought you'd like a look at this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner in action.
It's powered by a 383 V8, with an Edelbrock intake, 4 BBL carb, coated
headers, and Air Grabber induction. All the power is being funneled through
a hurst shifted four-speed manual back to an 8 3/4 rear. This car runs out
strong and it's in absolutely immaculate condition. It's as clean in the
engine bay and underneath the car as it is on the outside. The interior
looks showroom new as well. This car is a proven show winner as well. I hop
you find it interesting....thanks for watching!

69 Plymouth Road Runner vs Corvette ZO6 Street Race
Here's a short video of my 69 Plymouth Road Runner taking on a Heads/Cam
Corvette ZO6 at the local street digs.
No burnouts, timing pulled back to 30* for pump gas and I was babying a
newly installed FTI 4k torque converter.
Full interior, full tank and a trunk full of junk (tools, 2 spares, air
tank, track prep equipment, etc. etc.)
