A full restoration was completed on this 1969 Road Runner in 2012. It has had one repaint from Bronze Fire to Lemon Twist Yellow, including the correct Organisol hood paint treatment. This Resto-Mod looks original, but originality stops at the appearance. It's been upgraded with custom suspension, torsion sway-bars, shocks and springs, a Dana 60 complete rear drivetrain assembly and 3.73:1 posi-traction. It's powered by a custom-built 492ci engine putting out a dyno-tested 418rwhp, backed by an automatic transmission. It's been additionally upgraded with 4-wheel disc brakes, period-correct red line tires and custom Cragar SS wheels. Originally a bench seat car, the interior was upgraded with a custom bucket seat center console package. All of the upgrades were accomplished without interfering with the original 1969 Plymouth design. All of the work on the chassis was carefully crafted to appear as close as possible to factory original components. Every effort was made to keep this car a true Resto-Mod, with an original appearance inside and out, but with maximum power and the safety and comfort of modern disc brakes, suspension, drivetrain, wheels and tires.
