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.
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:

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!
