A stick-shift, bucket seat 1969 Plymouth Road Runner with its
original 383 V8 under the hood and (nearly) impossibly low
mileage... Oh yeah, we're offering you Mopar muscle car
How often do you get to see a survivor-grade serious muscle machine? This Road Runner was purchased less than two hours from our showroom and has remained with the same family (father and son) for its whole lifetime. That's why you can get such an appreciated muscle Mopar from a time when most were abused every Saturday night. The factory-correct Sunfire Yellow paint is the right kind of bright to attract attention to this special coupe. We also love the paint because it seems to go with the Road Runner's attitude. After all, every Chrysler B-body of the era had an imposing look thanks to the wide stance and flared fenders, and this one even goes further with the performance hood and redline tires on Mopar's Mag wheels. But the Road Runner had fun mixed into its attitude. The bright color combined with the grin-like wide bumpers and Warner Brothers bird make this an entertaining way to make a fast getaway.
These were midsize muscle cars, but that designation in the '60s means full-size comfort today. So there's plenty of room to have family and friends riding with you, but you don't need any of them to have fun with this Road Runner. The intricate pattern of the bucket seats and center console (quite premium for a Plymouth) instantly reminds you that this Road Runner is a driver's car. And because this one has averaged less than 450 miles annually you know there was little time to wear in this survivor-grade interior. That's why you get all the great original features - from the 8-track radio to the three-poke steering wheel with cartoon center cap (and yes, the horn still gives his Beep! Beep!) But we bet your favorite sound happens when you twist the key.
From the moment you lift the hood, you know exactly why this one gets your heart racing. The 383 cubic-inch V8 in the engine bay is the original motor installed by the St. Louis factory nearly a half-century ago. With that big bold block paint and correct Road Runner on top, it looks like a beacon of performance in the engine bay. So you know you're going to wow people with this much power and preservation in one package. It inhales deeply from a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority through the rumbling dual exhaust. Best of all, you have complete control over the big V8's power and its thunderous soundtrack thanks the correct four-speed manual transmission. This is the kind of performance package that we know you won't be able to resist adding to the ultra-low mileage on the odometer.
Because you're going to love telling this car's story, it also comes with the right paperwork to back it all up - including the original window sticker, factory build sheet, and title documentation. Such a well-preserved muscle machine is a true rarity, especially when it's a Mopar. So an in-demand classic like this is a case of call us today or you may regret it tomorrow!
