For sale in our Chicago showroom is this beastly 1972 Plymouth Road Runner. This Plymouth may look like a car, but is in-fact a vessel for the monster that lies within. Under that unassuming body, snarling at everything that rolls by, is a new Indy Cylinder 572 cubic-inch gen 2 Hemi crate motor. This monster-motor is rated at 800 horsepower and might as well breathe fire with every revolution. It sends exhaust gasses through the 2 and 1/8 inch primary tubes of the headers, near seamlessly flowing into a 3-inch TTI exhaust that's decorated with 3-inch machine gun tips. Behind the engine is a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission that delivers all the goods to the Dana 60 rear end, utilizing a very comfortable 3.73 gear. This beast disguised as a car may seem like it is "all go", but it will melt your face to the front windshield when you hit the middle pedal and demonstrate the ability of the Wilwood Hydroboost 4-wheel disk brakes. This combination of using all the right parts leaves the rest up to the driver. Inside, you will open the door and be greeted by an understated black interior. Sit down in the driver's seat, turn the key, and beckon the beast; tap the throttle ever so slightly and hear it roar. With the pistol grip shifter perfectly within grasp, you're reminded of the forces that have been awaken. Throw it in first, and get ready to ease the clutch out... or NOT! This classic Plymouth may be titled a Road Runner, but it will remain an asphalt destroyer.
