***SALE PENDING***Plymouth's goal in 1968 was to offer Detroit's biggest bang for the buck. The new Road Runner, priced at about $2,900, proved to be just the ticket. Initially based on a bare-bones Belvedere sedan, this B-body came standard with a 335-horse 383 V-8, a 4-speed stick and a beefed-up suspension. The 426 Hemi was an intimidating option, both in price and power. Adding 425 Hemi horses into the Road Runner equation upped the ante by about a grand. Plymouth's 1969 Road Runner won the Motor Trend Car of the Year trophy on the way to becoming the muscle car market's second best-seller. After a comparatively upscale hardtop joined the original sedan early in 1968, a convertible Road Runner also appeared for one year only in 1969. A restyled body debuted in 1970, as did the high-flying, NASCAR-ready Superbird with its pointed beak and "towel-rack" rear spoiler. Just in at Cody's Classic Cars, right out of a large privately owned muscle car collection, is this beautiful 70 Road Runner. A combination of nice original survivor (interior) along with a nice older repaint makes this a very presentable car. Previous owner removed the original 383 and hood, and transplanted a strong 440 and even found an Air Grabber hood! Rear end is 4:10 or 4:11, so this car is a lot of fun around town! Recent mechanical updates include new gas tank, sending unit, master cylinder, and rebuilt carb. CALL/TEXT 715-709-0343 to discuss purchase details.
After winning 38 of the 48 major races during the 1970 NASCAR season, the 1970 Plymouth Superbird was outlawed from NASCAR the following year.
The 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird is hailed as the “holy grail” of Plymouths and the most sought after of their line of raw-powered Muscle Cars.
