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.

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
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).
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...

1970 Plymouth, Road Runner, 440 6 Pack, CrazyPurple,Test Drive!! Restored, SOLD
1970 Plymouth, Road Runner, 440 6 Pack, CrazyPurple, Restored, For Sale,
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
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
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. For more information please contact Harry Clark at

132883 / 1981 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko Turbo Z
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7n9syqx
If you're a hardcore Chevrolet enthusiast who is looking for the ultimate
centerpiece to your collection, or a classic car guru who's been searching
for unique investment opportunity, this exceptional F2 Camaro is your ticket!
This car's one and only owner had been following the progression of the turbo Z program very closely. And when he
heard production numbers had dwindled to a fraction of Yenko's original
goal, he decided to take a trip to the showroom in hopes of picking up a
future collectible. After some light negotiation, a few signed papers, and
some firm handshakes the proud owner took possession of one super rare F2
Z28 that he would immaculately preserve for the next 30 years. When it was
finally time to sell, Pair-A-Dice Rods and Kustoms in Zanesville, Ohio was
contracted to complete a highly detailed, nut and bolt rotisserie
restoration which used 2011 technology to rebuild the car to concours
Pop the glossy white lid and you'll find an original, completely rebuilt
and highly detailed 350 cubic inch LM1 V8 which wears a correct 14010207
casting number and a February (B) 27th (27) of 1981 (1) casting date. Air
for that big engine flows from a chrome, open element air cleaner to an
original Rochester Quadrajet carburetor which rides on top of an original
turbo International turbocharger. Below that turbocharger, a fresh coat of traditional GM
Corporate Blue paint coats the block from its Yenko branded valve covers to
its original oil pan; and fully restored Exhaust manifolds send spent gases into a
factory replacement, single-pipe dual Exhaust system. Fires are lit by a correct
Delco-Remy HEI distributor which sends spark through blue Max Protection
plug wires. Cooling is provided by fresh hoses which snake to and from a
heavy duty radiator. And charging is provided by new V-belts which spin a
new Delco AC compressor and a rebuilt alternator behind a heavy duty seven
blade clutch fan.
The car's high-winding small block is backed by an original turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed automatic
transmission which wears a matching 124749 partial VIN; and the bottom of
its body is covered in a smooth coat of GM satin black paint. That stalwart
TH350 spins an original GM 10 bolt rear end which is stuffed full of
highway friendly 3.08 gears. And those floorpans ride on a fully restored
F41 special suspension that, for 1981, added higher rate springs, thicker
stabilizer bars and stiffer valved shocks. Standard equipment with the F41
suspension was improved ratio power steering which combines with standard,
to the Camaro, power
front disc and rear drum brakes to provide excellent stops and confidence
inspiring handling. At the center of the floors, freshly welded single pipe
dual Exhaust exactly duplicates the
car's original system all the way down to its AC catalytic converter. And
at the corners of the floor, 15 inch turbo White Rally wheels spin beefy 225/70 BF
Goodrich Radial T/As around satin stainless trim rings and Yenko decaled
Swivel open the car's long white doors and you'll find a well-maintained
black vinyl interior which looks just as good as the day it rolled out of
GM's Norwood, Ohio manufacturing facility. The standard black bucket seats
are in excellent shape and feel as if the only seat time they've seen is
moving the car in and out of its garage. Below those seats, like-new black
carpet is protected by custom, color-keyed Yenko floor mats. At the sides
of those seats, fresh, stainless trimmed door panels hang super straight
armrests below chrome door handles and chrome switches for optional power
door locks. Between those seats, a wide black console props a familiar
chrome shifter above a satin finished trim plate and chrome switches for
optional power windows. In front of those seats, a soft and warp-free dash
hangs satin trimmed gauges next to a Yenko installed Boost gauge, color-keyed water level indicator
and correct radio delete. And in front of the driver, a simulated rope
steering wheel centers a Yenko horn button atop a black tilt steering
One-of-a kind performance cars like this 1981 Yenko turbo Z are the opportunity of a lifetime! Call,
