If you bought into the notion that cartoons are for kids, drop it and get behind the wheel of this '69 Plymouth Road Runner. With one of the greatest designs of the day backed by the single greatest engine of the time, this no-frills thriller encapsulates everything that was right about the muscle car era.
Plymouth designers took the basic idea of stripped-down racer and translated into one of the most sturdy looking designs of the muscle car era. Comprised largely of straight lines and angles, the Road Runner doesn't look muscular like most of its competitors -- it looks indestructible. This B-body looks especially tough in its coat of B7 Jamaica Blue paint with longitudinal white stripes accenting the body lines. Fresh out of an extensive restoration, the paint work is first rate and displays a level of depth that factory sprayed cars simply can't compete with.
Chrome not looks heavy -- it is heavy. To keep the weight down, Plymouth designers kept their use of shiny bits to a minimum. The result is an industrial grade look that let's everybody know this car is all business. From the performance hood to the iconic Roadrunner decals, everything is here and looking better than new.
From the name to the design, the Roadrunner was built with one intention -- eliminating stop light competition. While the base 383 was nothing to laugh at, it was the 426 Hemi that made the car a legend. This is a true Hemi car and the date-coded Elephant between the frame rails looks right at home, dressed with a Coyote Duster air cleaner, wrinkle finish valve covers and the token orange overspray on the negative battery cable. The engine fires up on the first try and behaves well for a Hemi.
Take a look underneath the pristine body and you'll find a clean undercarriage with lots of correct hardware and solid floorpans that wear just the right amount of Jamaica Blue overspray. In the center, an 18-spline A833 four-speed manual transmission transfers power down the driveshaft and out to the Dana 60 differential packed with 4.10 gears. The suspension remains stock with manual steering and power drum brakes. At the corners, body-matched steel wheels wear dog dishes with Goodyear F70-15's protecting them from the pavement.
Between the Jamaica Blue doors, a fully restored H2X black vinyl interior awaits. While you may expect a stripped down muscle car to be uncomfortable, this Plymouth is just the opposite. The rebuilt bench seat is surprisingly accommodating and offers just enough support to make long trips a legitimate possibility. From the carpet to the headliner, all the soft pieces appear to be new and combine to form a showroom quality cabin.
Documentation includes two copies of the fender tag broken down by Mopar master Galen Govier. There is also an impressive stack of receipts from big-time shops such as Mancini Racing and Roger Gibson Auto Restoration. Even after a quick glance through the stack, you'll be glad someone else footed the bill on this build.
