Description
 
1971 Plymouth Road Runner 440 6-pak History The Plymouth Road Runner was a performance car built by the Plymouth division of the Chrysler Corporation in the United States between 1968 and 1980. Although Plymouth already had a performance car in the GTX, designers decided to go back to the drawing board and reincarnate the original muscle car concept. Plymouth wanted a car able to run 14-second times in the quarter mile (402 m) and sell for less than US$3000. Both goals were met, and the low-cost muscle car hit the street. The success of the Road Runner would far outpace the upscale and lower volume GTX, with which it was often confused. In 1971, the coupe bodywork was completely changed to a more rounded fuselage design in keeping with then-current Chrysler styling trends, including a steeply raked windshield, hidden cowl, and deeply inset grille and headlights. In a departure from previous thinking, the B-Body two-door bodies shared little if any sheet metal, glass, or trim with the four-door bodies. The convertible was canceled. 1971 was a high-water year for ride and handling for the Road Runner. The overall length was decreased, but the wheelbase was increased, and a rear sway bar was used in conjunction with staggered rear leaf springs, resulting in better handling and cornering without the stiff ride. It also saw the introduction of the 340-4bbl option, and a detuned 383 Road Runner engine with 8.7 compression, hardened exhaust valve seats, and power dropping to 300hp. VIN RM23V1G168397 This is a true 1971 Plymouth Roadrunner 440 6 pack V-code car, born with an air grabber hood! This rare Mopar has been completely restored and was given away as a prize at a Michigan casino. The previous owner had the car for three years. He completely rebuilt the rear axle and suspension. The engine is a date code correct car but does not match the VIN on the car. All other numbers do match. VIN and Fender Tag decoding information is at the bottom of this ad.
