1970 Plymouth RoadRunner 440 6 pack
1970 brought new front and rear end looks to the basic 1968 body, and it
would prove to be another success. Updates included a new grille, leather
seats, hood, front fenders, quarter panels, single-piston Kelsey-Hayes disc
brakes (improved from the rather small-rotor Bendix 4 piston calipers of
'68 - '69 ), and even non-functional scoops in the rear quarters. The
design and functionality of the Air Grabber option was changed this year to
increase both efficiency and the "intimidation factor". A switch below the
dash actuated a vacuum servo to slowly raise the forward-facing scoop,
exposing shark-like teeth on either side. "High Impact" colors, with names
like In-Violet, Moulin Rouge, and Vitamin C, were options available for
that year. The 1970 Road Runner and GTX continued to be attractive and
popular cars. The engine lineup was left unchanged although a heavy-duty
three-speed manual became the standard transmission, relegating the
four-speed to the option list along with the TorqueFlite automatic. This
was to be the second and last year of the Road Runner convertible, with
only 834 made. These cars are considered more valuable than the 1969
version due to a better dash, high impact colors and more options including
the new high-back bucket seats shared with other Chrysler products which
featured built-in headrests.
The relatively popular 440 Six Barrel was relegated to option status for
1970. The 1969 "M" Code Edelbrock aluminum intake was replaced by a
factory-produced cast iron piece; however, due to a porous casting, there
was a recall early in the iron intake-equipped 440+6 run, and these were
supposed to be replaced with the more-desirable Edelbrock intake from the
Sales of the '70 Road Runner dropped by more than 50 percent over the
previous year to around 41,000 units (about 1,000 ahead of Pontiac's GTO
but still about 13,000 units behind Chevy's Chevelle SS-396/454). This
would also be the last year of the road runner convertible with 834 total
production. Only 3 hemi (R) code road runner convertibles were built. The
declining sales of Road Runner and other muscle cars were the result of a
move by insurance companies to add surcharges for muscle car policies -
making insurance premiums for high-performance vehicles a very expensive
proposition. Also, Plymouth introduced another bargain-basement muscle car
for 1970, the compact Duster 340 which was powered by a 275-horsepower 340 Magnum V8
which in the lighter-weight compact A-body could perform as well if not
better than a 383 Road Runner. Furthermore, the Duster 340 was priced even
lower than the Road Runner and its smaller engine qualified it for much
lower insurance rates.
The Chevy engine comment was a joke.

Let's not waste any time on this brilliant green 1970 Road Runner. It's a
440 with a Six Pack, and it's probably the fastest car we have in the shop
right now. It has been given a recent restoration, and the condition of the
body and undercarriage is jaw-dropping. This is an off-the-charts amazing
Why have a Road Runner without the high-impact color? The lime green paint
is stunning. The straight, clean and solid body is wave free and rust free.
All of the gaps, margins, panels, and door and trunk lips are clean, just
the way you want them. The flat black hood and dust decal stripes along the
flanks have been expertly installed. The chrome and stainless is extremely
clean, and looks appropriate on the car. Honestly, it jumps out at you in
the photos, doesn't it?
Under the hood you'll find the 440 Six Pack engine, fully restored and
highly detailed. The casting number on the motor is 2536430.10. That big
air cleaner looks intimidating covering those three carburetors, and is
properly detailed with a fresh coat of paint and a correct decal set. Take
off that air cleaner and check out the Six Pack Holley carbs, as well as
the Edelbrock intake. This Road Runner carries no performance-robbing
accessories like power steering or power brakes—this is a man's car all
the way through. Details like the radiator, Mopar battery, and Road Runner
horn look to be brand new.
The transmission is a 727 driving the 8.75" rear with 3:73 gears. The rust
free, patch free floors are covered in the same paint color as the body,
and looks tidy and clean. The suspension features new ball joints, sway bar
links and new shocks. The springs have been painted and look brand new. The
frame members have visible stamped part numbers, that's how clean they are.
O2 sensors, a new gas tank, new fuel lines and new brake lines were also
included in the restoration. The drum brakes stop the car confidently,
although you need to give the pedal a good shove just like any car with
manual brakes. A stainless steel Exhaust system with Dynamax mufflers has been
recently installed that gives the big 440 a deep voice that doesn't get
obnoxiously loud when all six barrels are wide open.
Optional Dog Dish hubcaps sit on body matched painted wheels.
The black and silver interior is simply spectacular, and surprisingly it
goes very nicely with the green bodywork. The seats, door panels, carpets,
headliner and the dash are all in great shape. The standard gauges are
present, as well as an aftermarket column mounted tach and dual aftermarket
water temperature and oil gauges mounted under the dash. A bench with a
column-shifted automatic saves some weight. In back, the painted trunk has
a new mat as well.
Beautifully finished inside and out, it's ready to show at high-level
events where it might be the subject of considerable speculation. This is
just a cool car in great colors that is neck-snapping fast. What more do
