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.

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!

If you bought into the notion that cartoons are for kids, drop it and get
behind the wheel of this '69 Plymouth Road Runner. With one of the greatest
designs of the day backed by the single greatest engine of the time, this
no-frills thriller encapsulates everything that was right about the muscle
Plymouth designers took the basic idea of stripped-down racer and
translated into one of the most sturdy looking designs of the muscle car
era. Comprised largely of straight lines and angles, the Road Runner
doesn't look muscular like most of its competitors -- it looks
indestructible. This B-body looks especially tough in its coat of B7
Jamaica Blue paint with longitudinal white stripes accenting the body
lines. Fresh out of an extensive restoration, the paint work is first rate
and displays a level of depth that factory sprayed cars simply can't
Chrome not looks heavy -- it is heavy. To keep the weight down, Plymouth
designers kept their use of shiny bits to a minimum. The result is an
industrial grade look that let's everybody know this car is all business.
From the performance hood to the iconic Roadrunner decals, everything is
here and looking better than new.
From the name to the design, the Roadrunner was built with one intention --
eliminating stop light competition. While the base 383 was nothing to laugh
at, it was the 426 Hemi that made the car a legend. This is a true Hemi car
and the date-coded Elephant between the frame rails looks right at home,
dressed with a Coyote Duster air cleaner, wrinkle finish valve covers and
the token orange overspray on the negative battery cable. The engine fires
up on the first try and behaves well for a Hemi.
Take a look underneath the pristine body and you'll find a clean
undercarriage with lots of correct hardware and solid floorpans that wear
just the right amount of Jamaica Blue overspray. In the center, an
18-spline A833 four-speed manual transmission transfers power down the
driveshaft and out to the Dana 60 differential packed with 4.10 gears. The
suspension remains stock with manual steering and power drum brakes. At the
corners, body-matched steel wheels wear dog dishes with Goodyear F70-15's
protecting them from the pavement.
Between the Jamaica Blue doors, a fully restored H2X black vinyl interior
awaits. While you may expect a stripped down muscle car to be
uncomfortable, this Plymouth is just the opposite. The rebuilt bench seat
is surprisingly accommodating and offers just enough support to make long
trips a legitimate possibility. From the carpet to the headliner, all the
soft pieces appear to be new and combine to form a showroom quality cabin.
Documentation includes two copies of the fender tag broken down by Mopar
master Galen Govier. There is also an impressive stack of receipts from
big-time shops such as Mancini Racing and Roger Gibson Auto Restoration.
Even after a quick glance through the stack, you'll be glad someone else
footed the bill on this build.
If you're ready to hit the road with Hemi power, dust off a place in your
collection for this awesome '69 Road Runner! Call, click or visit
