1974 Plymouth Road Runner 360 V8
I thought you might like a look at this recently restored classic Mopar.
This 74 Plymouth Road Runner is still powered by it's original 360 V8,
topped with a four barrel carb. The paint is slick, the decals look great,
and it's riding on a nice set of rally wheels. The 360 is backed by a 727
torqueflite automatic and an 8 3/4 rear with sure grip. The interior looks
mint and it still has functioning factory air conditoning. I hope you find
it interesting, thanks for watching!

Daredevil Driving Stunts in a 1936 Plymouth: "Trial by Torture" 1935 Chrysler Corporation
more at http://cars.quickfound.net/
Toughness of the 1936 Plymouth is demonstrated by showing how components,
structures, and the entire vehicle are "torture tested." Includes several
good shots of deliberately rolling cars, and daredevil driving by "Hell
Drivers' such as Lucky Teter and Jimmy Lynch.

Plymouth was a marque of automobiles based in the United States, produced
by the Chrysler Corporation and its successor DaimlerChrysler. Production
was discontinued on June 29, 2001 in the United States.
The Plymouth automobile was introduced on July 7, 1928. It was Chrysler
Corporation's first entry in the low-priced field, which at the time was
already dominated by Chevrolet and Ford. Plymouths were actually priced
slightly higher than their competition, but offered all standard features
such as internal expanding hydraulic brakes that the competition did not
provide. Plymouths were originally sold exclusively through Chrysler
dealerships. The logo featured a rear view of the ship Mayflower which
landed at Plymouth Rock. However, the Plymouth brand name came from
Plymouth Binder Twine, chosen by Joe Frazer for its popularity among
The origins of Plymouth can be traced back to the Maxwell automobile. When
Walter P. Chrysler took over control of the troubled Maxwell-Chalmers car
company in the early 1920s, he inherited the Maxwell as part of the
package. After he used the company's facilities to help create and launch
the Chrysler car in 1924, he decided to create a lower-priced companion
car. So for 1926 the Maxwell was reworked and re-badged as the low-end
Chrysler "52" model. In 1928, the "52" was once again redesigned to create
the Chrysler-Plymouth Model Q. The "Chrysler" portion of the nameplate was
dropped with the introduction of the Plymouth Model U in 1929.
Great Depression, 1940s and 1950s
While the original purpose of the Plymouth was to serve a lower-end
marketing niche, during the Great Depression of the 1930s, the marque
helped significantly in ensuring the survival of the Chrysler Corporation
in a decade when many other car companies failed. Beginning in 1930,
Plymouths were sold by all three Chrysler divisions (Chrysler, DeSoto, and
Dodge). Plymouth sales were a bright spot during this dismal automotive
period, and by 1931 Plymouth rose to the number three spot among all cars.
In 1931 with the Model PA, the company introduced floating power and
boasted, "The economy of a four; the smoothness of a six." In 1933 Chrysler
decided to catch up with Ford and Chevrolet with respect to engine cylinder
count. The 190 cu in version of Chrysler's flathead-6 engine was equipped
with a downdraft carburetor and installed in the new 1933 Plymouth PC,
introduced on 17 November 1932. However, Chrysler had reduced the PC's
wheelbase from 112 in (284.5 cm) to 107 in (271.8 cm), and the car sold
poorly. By April 1933, the Dodge division's Model DP chassis, with a 112 in
(284.5 cm) wheelbase, was put under the PC body with DP front fenders,
hood, and radiator shell. The model designation was advanced to PD and the
car was marketed as the "DeLuxe" 1933 Plymouth. This car sold very well and
is the 1933 model most commonly found in collections. The PC became the
'Standard Six'. It had been the 'Plymouth Six' at introduction, and was
sold through to the end of 1933, but in much lower numbers. It is
consequently in the minority in collectors' hands today. In 1937, Plymouth
(along with the other Chrysler makes) added safety features such as flat
dash boards with recessed controls and the back of the front seat padded
for the rear seat occupants. The PC was shipped overseas to Sweden,
Denmark, and the UK, as well as Australia. In the UK it was sold as a
'Chrysler Kew', Kew Gardens being the location of the Chrysler factory
outside London. The flathead 6 which started with the 1933 Model PC stayed
in the Plymouth until the 1959 models.
In 1939 Plymouth produced 417,528 vehicles, of which 5,967 were two-door
convertible coupes with rumble seats. The 1939 convertible coupe was
prominently featured at Chrysler's exhibit at the 1939 New York World's
Fair, advertised as the first mass-production convertible with a power
folding top. It featured a 201 cu in, 82 hp version of the flathead six
For much of its life, Plymouth was one of the top-selling American
automobile brands; it together with Chevrolet and Ford were commonly
referred to as the "low-priced three" marques in the American market...
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.

Since I am into more things than just RC I thought this might be a great
way to expand the channel a little.
I have been wanting to do a review and drive of a long time member of the
family. This is the old man's 1959 Plymouth he has had.. well basically
since 1959. I hope you enjoy seeing this "old bomb" as he calls it.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #63: 1971 Plymouth Road Runner 426 Hemi
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - This week, we're taking a look at a
Hemi powered musclecar featuring a cartoon character in the grill. This
1971 Hemi Road Runner is a very limited production car that still retains a
full-power 426 Hemi. It features outstanding details like the functional
air grabber hood feeding fresh air to the 425 hp, 426 cube Hemi V-8.
Inside, you will find a bench seat, a four-speed handle and little else.
The exterior styling is bold with the new-for-1971 styling and the
distinctive reflective stripe. It is one of many Hemi powered cars in the
Brothers Collection and it is our Muscle Car Of The Week!
