Numbers matching, Plymouth Roadrunner. 383/727 Auto, I am the second owner and purchased 3 years ago from an elderly gentleman in El Paso, TX. who told me the car had been in his family since purchased new. I have checked the numbers on the block and trim plate etc. and they all match. You can tell it must have spent it's life in the dry climate of El Paso, TX. as there is no rust in the car. The car in great shape with repainting to original color, reupholster to original style and color interior. The dash has no cracks and headliner and package tray are in good condition. The trunk pan and floor pans are solid and rust free, the left quarter panel has a small seam crack in the paint as seen in the pic and has been that way since I purchased the car. Previous owner added some performance parts, upgrading to an MSD ignition kit, Purple Camshaft, Headers, Holly fuel pump, adding Zoom gears, larger aluminum wheels, etc. Everything in the car works as it should, including the tic-toc-tac (rare). This is a very strong running and dependable car that could be used as a daily driver. The paint is nice and presentably with a few chips and scratches, as with any driver. Included with the sale is a newly restored and correct steering wheel with new Roadrunner beep-beep horn emblem. Horn still works and still sounds Beep! Beep! Over all, this is a fine example of an investment quality, original classic Roadrunner and a fast muscle car.
