http://hackwith.com/mycar.htm 383 HP engine (stamped right on the block) 335 horse-power, pistol grip 4 speed, numbers matching, less than 60k orig. miles. Acquired on April 07, 1995, stored inside at all times, never driven in the rain since stored. THIS CAR IS NOT RESTORED. It runs fine and is drivable. Interior is not the original but this thing has amazing potential to become a real show piece or nice daily driver depending on what money you spend on it. Make an offer. I reserve the right to refuse any offer for any reason. I am attached to this car and want someone to restore it. It's burnt orange like an old penny. 2 door true hard-top, no window posts.

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

Let's not waste any time on this Plum Crazy 1970 Road Runner. It's a 383
with a 4 speed manual trans, and it's one of my favorite cars we have in
the shop right now. It has been given a recent restoration, and the
condition of the body and undercarriage is stunning. This is an
off-the-charts amazing car.
This Road Runner has traveled across the United States, starting its life
at the Los Angeles, California, assembly plant, and then on to New Mexico,
Colorado, and up to Michigan. Meep Meep!! It has been restored and is
extremely clean, straight, fast and fun to drive!
Why have a Road Runner without the high-impact color? The FC7 In-violet
high impact paint is extraordinary, and the Dust Trail stripes along the
flanks have been expertly installed. The restoration included new hood pins
as well. The straight, clean and solid body is wave free and rust free, and
the gas is original. All of the gaps, margins, panels, and door and trunk
lips are clean, just the way you want them. The chrome and stainless is
new, impeccable 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 rebuilt, date coded, 383ci engine, with high
volume oil pump and performance purple camshaft. It's fully restored and
highly detailed. The chrome air cleaner is sporting the "Coyote Duster"
stickers and sits on top of the Holley 670cfm carb and Edelbrock Performer
intake. Check out those painted valve covers! The orange paint stands out,
it's a nice change from the usual chrome. You will also notice a rebuilt
radiator, rebuilt alternator, electronic ignition and lightweight starter,
Chrysler distributor, new master cylinder, Die Hard battery and of course,
the Road Runner horn.
The factory 4 speed (casting # C99129) manual transmission was rebuilt in
2009. Follow the rebuilt drive shaft, with new u-joints, down to the 8.75"
sure-grip rear end with 3:55 gears. The Exhaust system features jet-coated headers,
stainless steel 2.5" dual Exhaust,
Dynamax stainless mufflers and chrome tips. The restoration included a new
performance fuel pump, new fuel lines and gas tank. The rust free, scale
free, patch free floors are covered in a beautiful coat of black paint, and
the frame is in equally nice condition. Pinch welds and spot welds are
visible on the frame and rockers. The suspension includes a new PST Poly
front-end kit, new rear air shocks, new bearings, and new bushings on the
front sway bar. Drum brakes stop the car confidently and a new steering box
keeps it between the lines. Sitting at all four corners are a beautiful set
of Rallye wheels and BF Goodrich Radial T/A's (245-60-14 rear, 205-70-14
Open the door and check out the spectacular black interior. The restoration
included new bucket seats, rear bench upholstery, door panels, arm rests,
carpet and rubber Road Runner mats. The new dash is straight and the gauges
are renovated as well. There is an aftermarket SunPro tach mounted in the
dash, and an aftermarket AM/FM/CD player to supply the tunes. The pistol
grip shifter and wood steering wheel are nice touches. This is one
excellent restoration. Out back the solid clean trunk has fresh carpet, a
spare tire and car cover.
Receipts of the restoration are included in the sale.
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
you want? Call today! 7 days a week 248-974-9513
Daredevil Driving Stunts in a 1936 Plymouth: "Trial by Torture" 1935 Chrysler Corporation

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.

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...
