132974 / 1970 Plymouth Road Runner

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6r4s6my Let's not waste any time on this brilliant Vitamin C Orange 1970 Plymouth. Not only is it a 100% matching numbers V-code Road Runner, and the earliest documented 1970 hardtop built. It also carries a rare aluminum intake manifold that was factory installed as a leftover from A12 production and presents a fresh frame-up restoration which provided all the necessary finishing touches to perfectly complement its immaculate body and spotless undercarriage. That's right Chrysler fans; this is another one of those off-the-charts amazing Mopar muscle cars that your friends here at RK Motors Charlotte love to find and offer exclusively to you! The color change from Burnt Orange to Vitamin C is completely understandable; after all, why have a Road Runner without the high-impact color? The body is 100% original sheetmetal, and has been refinished to better than new standards with great gaps and a ton of block sanding. I don't know that we've seen a car this straight in a long time, and the Vitamin C paint seems to emphasize how nice it really is. The Performance Hood Treatment and dust stripes along the flanks have been expertly installed, and the orientation of the dust decals is correct (look closely at the next Road Runner you see and you'll discover how easy it is to get it wrong). That cool Air Grabber hood is fully functional and the black Go-Wing out back is a nice touch. Under the car's orange hood you'll find its original, fully restored and highly detailed 440 Six Pack V8m which wears a correct 2536430-9 casting number, a July 24th of 1969 casting date and a correct partial VIN. The intake is painted, as it should be on a Road Runner, but is indeed an aluminum A12 unit underneath, with a 1969 dated letter from Chrysler informing owners of this fact. That big air cleaner looks intimidating covering those three carburetors, and is properly detailed with a fresh coat of paint and a correct set of decals. Hoses and clamps are correct, and like the potent A12 cars, this one carries no performance-robbing accessories like power steering or power brakes—this is a MAN's car all the way through! The Exhaust manifolds are in spectacular shape with no rust and almost no pitting, and details like the washer fluid bottle and Road Runner horn are brand new. Underneath the car, an original heavy duty Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission drives an original 8.75-inch Sure Grip rear that's equipped with tall 3.55 gears. In fact, that rear end is so authentic that it still carries its original clip tag. The floors are covered in original undercoating that has been nicely touched up for show, and looks tidy and clean. The suspension features correct fasteners and hardware, and again, is 100% original. The brakes have been rebuilt and stop the car confidently, although you need to give the pedal a good shove just like any car with manual brakes. And a correct dual Exhaust system has been recently installed to give the big 440 a deep voice that doesn't get obnoxiously loud when all six barrels are wide open. Wheels are the original Rallyes wearing F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GT tires. Inside, a fully restored black vinyl interior is simply spectacular, and not surprisingly, goes very nicely with the car's Vitamin C bodywork. Those are the original seats which have been wrapped in new black and gray covers, new door panels which have been sandwiched between black door frames and new stainless trim, and a fresh black which dash which is full of unrestored and fully functional gauges; even the tic-toc-tach works properly. Like the A12 cars before it, this one is built to go fast above all else, so there's a bench with a column-shifted automatic to save some weight. In front of the driver, a correct black steering wheel displays a cool Road Runner horn button. And new carpeted floor mats have been installed to keep the new black carpets looking as fresh as the day they left the factory. A pedigreed Mopar muscle car in great colors that is neck-snapping fast; what more could you ask for? Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information on this awesome car!

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. Public domain film from the Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plymouth_(automobile) 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 farmers... 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 engine. 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...

1970 Plymouth, Road Runner, 440 6 Pack, CrazyPurple,Test Drive!! Restored, SOLD
1970 Plymouth, Road Runner, 440 6 Pack, CrazyPurple, Restored, For Sale, Test Drive This is a full rotisserie restoration of a 59,000 mile 440 6-Pack car that was originally bought from Cal Worthington Chrysler Dodge Plymouth in Long Beach, California and was optioned as you see it today: In Plum Crazy purple livery, white interior, 440 6-Pack and factory four speed manual transmission. What could be better? Dave Witter bought the Road Runner on December 15, 1969. It was a car that was returned to the Cal Worthington after another couple decided they wanted an automatic GTX rather than a 4-speed car! They accumulated about 158 miles on the car over their three day ownership! Dave Witter then bought it as a returning serviceman in the military. He paid $2,936 for it and later drove it home to rural Missouri. He kept the Road Runner for 37 years!! After 37 years of ownership Dave sold his Road Runner to our consignment client Jim from Yucaipa, California. Jim set out on a complete and thorough restoration of every component of the car by using a rotisserie and all local expert resources. The details of the restoration include: -Complete rebuild of the factory warranty replacement block (correct 1970 440 block without numbers) with a NOS crank, rods and pistons, hardened value seats, manly valves and springs. Jim installed a Mopar Performance purple shaft cam (484 lift) that helps the Road Runner produce 475 hp and 435 ft lbs of torque. It has an Edelbrock intake and three Holly carbs as it was originally equipped. It is now equipped with headers and a 2.5″ Exhaust. -3:54 posi rear-end was rebuilt with all new components by Curry Enterprises and the original Hemi 18 spline 4-speed transmission was fully rebuilt with new gears and shafts. -The brakes, front end, radiator and fuel tank are all new and rebuilt and the wiring is all new from M&H. -The paint was done by Mike Face in San Bernardino using Sherwin Williams two stage paint and, again, using a full rotisserie. The correct white interior is all new from Legendary interior. The glass was also fully replaced. The bumpers are the original bumpers with new triple chrome plating. This is an excellent example to add to your collection. This Road Runner can be shown in competitive events or to race for pinkslips!! This is a two owner, original California car that has a terrific history and wonderful restoration.
