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.
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!
134545 / 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/lnragwb
A highly exclusive aero car that features an original 440/4-speed
powertrain, this Plymouth Superbird wears original sheetmetal under a
correct white on black color combination. And if you're shopping for a bad
to the bone investment that's fun to look at, a blast to drive and ready to
hit the show circuit, it's the classic of your dreams!
The slick coupe's high quality, frame-off restoration began with a full
array of original, rust-free sheetmetal. Take one look down that slab-sided
metal and you'll see straight and clean panels that are finessed far past
anything from Lynch Road assembly. Pull those panels into the sunlight and
their correct Alpine White two-stage accurately reproduces Chrysler's
crisp, planar lines. Step up close to those lines and you'll find even gaps
that are devoid of any sloppy patches or second-rate finishing work. And,
ultimately, it all boils down to one very impressive pavement pounder that
inspires comments and elicits stares every time it hits the road!
Hoist the long hood and you'll find an original, 440 cubic inch Super
Commando V8 that's authenticated by a 2536430 casting number, a February
(2) 28th (28) of 1969 (69) casting date and a matching 179782 partial VIN.
At the top of that 375 horsepower monster, a big,
4-barrel carburetor rides within a beefy, Organisol-coated air cleaner. At
the base of that carburetor, a correct Chrysler intake hangs between
correct heads and traditional, stamped steel valve covers. At the front of
those valve covers, a reliable points distributor shoots spark through
Chrysler Electronic Suppression wires. And at the sides of that
distributor, fully restored Exhaust
manifolds funnel spent gases into great sounding, true-dual tail pipes.
Behind that mill, an original A833 4-speed, which wears a matching 179782
partial VIN, provides solid, poignant shifts. That tough transmission sends
power to a correct Dana 60 rear end, which spins a proven Sure Grip
differential around correct, 3.54 gears. At the front of the car,
Chrysler's beefy Hemi suspension utilizes an A12 sway bar and standard
power steering to make quick work of big bumps and tight curves. At the
back of the car, that same Hemi suspension hangs correctly staggered
springs at the sides of a leak-free stainless fuel tank. Stops come
courtesy of standard power front disc and rear drum brakes. And all this
Mopar goodness rolls on prerequisite Rallye wheels, which twist 255/60R15
Cooper Cobra radials around subdued center caps and bright stainless rings.
Inside this famous Plymouth, a factory-correct interior is clean,
well-optioned and surprisingly stylish. Seating, an ultra-rare all-bench
set up, displays no significant signs of wear. In front of those benches, a
straight, crack-free dash hangs original factory gauges beside a familiar
Chrysler Solid State. At the bottom of that dash, well-maintained carpet
centers a Hurst Pistol Grip shifter between rubber Road Runner floor mats.
And in front of the driver, a monochromatic steering wheel spins a silver
horn ring around a cool Road Runner centerpiece.
A poster child for the golden era of Detroit, the Plymouth Superbird stands
head and shoulders above nearly every classic in terms of looks,
exclusivity and performance. Few cars are as popular as they are
polarizing, and that simply adds to its cache. With a smooth,
numbers-matching powertrain, all-original sheetmetal and enough visual
flash to stand out in a mirror factory, this awesome coupe is about as
close to the ultimate muscle car as you can get!
