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!
