Description
 
1971 PLYMOUTH ROAD RUNNER - ONE OF A KIND - FACTORY PETTY BLUE, BLUE INTERIOR, WHITE TOP and STRIPES! You won't see another one of these at a car show! For 40 years, there was ONLY ONE 1971 MOPAR that was known to be factory PETTY BLUE, that being the famous Richard Petty Hemi Road Runner Raffle Car. Then about 3 years ago, the rumored other two cars surfaced, and I ended up owning both of them, including this one. They are both 383-Magnums. I sold the first one to the CA collector who owns the Hemi Runner, so this one is the ONLY one of the 3 that can now be bought, especially at a reasonable price! This Runner has the original Manual 3-speed (yes, a 3-speed!) stick on the floor, with a Blue bench interior. It also had a front white vinyl top, with the white rear roof stripes, along with factory A/C, and power steering. The other 2 cars are both automatics, without any white top or stripes, so this is DEFINITELY a 1 of 1 car!
The original fender tag goes with the car, as does the 1978 North Carolina title I received when I bought the car that I was able to save as a historical document. The NC title was from a town called Albemarle, which is about an hour from where Richard Petty resides. For those of you who don't know, the Petty's controlled their racing color, the official name was "Corporate Blue", and on the fender tag of these vehicles the special order paint code "999" appeared. NOBODY ELSE could have ordered this color UNLESS the Petty's either authorized it or ordered it themselves! I also have a good new Oklahoma title in my name that will go with the car.
As you can see from the 100 pictures, the car does need a full restoration. A lot of the sheet metal will have to be repaired and some parts replaced, at your choice. However, the rear quarters are pretty good, just need a little repair down low. All the frame rails are very good, including the torque box area and where the K-frame bolts in, as you can see from the pics. There is a LOT of original Petty Blue paint still visible on the frame rails, along with some factory undercoating. The entire floorboard from a B-5 blue Satellite Sebring parts car has already been sectioned in by a previous owner who started on a restoration, and then had to sell the car, so it is good and solid. There are a lot of the original parts that go with the car, as also seen in the many pics. If a part is not pictured, it isn't with the car, what you see is what you get. I was told the mileage was original, but obviously can't be verified.
The engine that is in the car is a 383, but isn't the original engine. The latest owner before me said that the previous owner before him told him that the original engine was available as part of the deal, but they didn't have an engine hoist to get it into the pickup, so it is still in that guy's garage. The car was supposed to be able to start and drive around the yard, but it's been sitting about 5 years, so consider it as non-running.
Since I haven't been able to do anything with the car in over 3 years and have other priorities now, I hate to sell it, but I have decided to find the car a new home. I hope whoever ends up with it will restore it and have it featured in the MOPAR Collectors Guide, as it truly is an extremely rare 1-of-a-kind vehicle.
The car is sold "As Is and Shown", with no warranties or guarantees beyond what is stated here. Buyer will pay any freight charge to ship the vehicle, or feel free to come pick it up, I'm in the greater NW Oklahoma City, OK area, right in the middle of the country. I do have the ability to deliver the car for the right price and some extra freight charge.
I am now only asking $7,900 or best offer, and I intend to list it on eBay ASAP, and take the best offer I get here or there in the next 2-3 weeks. The only thing worse than having to sell an irreplaceable cool MOPAR is losing money on it at the same time! Oh well...
If you have any questions, call me (Darrell) on my cell at 405-650-2864.
Thanks for your interest in a cool piece of MOPAR history!
