1968 Hemi Road Runner

Describes the history and performance of Plymouth Hemi Road Runners. I was lucky enough to be the first to drive a 1969 Hemi Road Runner (4 speed) after brought out of storage after over 25 years. After working for a while to get it running, it returned to life with no smoke and gained strength by the minute as it loosened up. You could feel the heritage returning.

Test Driving 1969 Plymouth Road Runner 383 V8 4 BBL Four Speed
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV I thought you'd like a look at this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner in action. It's powered by a 383 V8, with an Edelbrock intake, 4 BBL carb, coated headers, and Air Grabber induction. All the power is being funneled through a hurst shifted four-speed manual back to an 8 3/4 rear. This car runs out strong and it's in absolutely immaculate condition. It's as clean in the engine bay and underneath the car as it is on the outside. The interior looks showroom new as well. This car is a proven show winner as well. I hop you find it interesting....thanks for watching!

440 Road Runner Vs 426 Hemi Challenger
This video was filmed in summer of 1999 and I was 20 years old. In this video,I was driving my fathers 1969 440 Road Runner and I was paired up against 1970 426 Hemi Challenger in a heads-up race (no handicap start). The guy driving the Hemi Challenger was a national champion and the challenger was also a national record holder for its class. The two cars ran side by side all the way down the track and in the end I beat him with a 7.13 to his 7.12. Thats right, I ran slower and beat him...the reason I won was because I had a perfect .500 reaction time. I tree'd him like it was nobody's business (only kiddin). Enjoy!!!





A 1/4 mile ride in Joel Nystroms Hemi 4 speed GTX
Mike Kamm sat in the back seat of my 67 Plymouth GTX, an original 30,000 mile Hemi 4 speed car, while I carefully baby it down Norwalks 1/4 mile dragstrip. This pass was run on original style G70-14 bias ply tires, so there was tire spin. Thats why I had to back pedal a little in 1st and the shift light never went off in 2nd. I had the light set to come on at 6500 rpm, but wasn't shifting untill 7000. This was a mid 11 second pass at about 124 mph. Check it out from behind the car: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snKfkP8nqg4

1968 Super Stock Hemi Dart from Hurst First Drive
The first drive of Troy's 1968 Super Stock Hemi Dart recreation. This car is a recreation of how racers originally recieved the cars from Hurst Corporation. Skinny tires, primer paint, transistorized ignition, heater delete, outside mirror delete, rear seat delete, no seam sealer, no sound deadener, no undercoating, and many many other tricks! The rolling burnout in this video was truely not done on purpose. Just bliping the throttle with those skinny bia plys will that! It's a correct looking 472 Hemi with the new TTI Hemi A-body headers. No need to have expensive custom header made for your car anymore! The rest of the Exhaust is straight back to glasspacks as delivered by Hurst. This was THE car TTI used to prototype and create the jigs for A-body Hemi Headers. This car has a 1968 idler, pitman, centerlink, with manual brakes. Motor is positioned as called out in the TTI instructions. Troy did extensive research and work to complete this project that took under 2 years to complete. Final paint application, engine machining, and seat covers, where the only 3 items he did not do in his 2 car garage!
