1969 Plymouth Roadrunner
This is an extremely original , numbers matching, 383 automatic, power steering , non power drum brakes, bucket seats, console car! It was repainted long ago, this is the factory color and accent stripes. Black interior is in excellent condition , car is virtually untouched, has fender tag ,everything is original down to the factory hub caps. I purchased it from the second owner who owned it since 1973 he parked it in 1991. I had to install a new spectre gas tank, sending unit, plugs, cap , rotor, points and carburetor rebuild kit with a thorough carb cleaning. Runs great , very strong! I also serviced the numbers matching 727 transmission which shifts perfectly! There is body filler in front of and behind rear tires. No filler anywhere else on the body. Vehicle is solid underneath except for the rear frame rails. Rear frame rails are solid but very crusty externally and in my opinion would need to be replaced for a rotisserie restoration. With tires and brakes this roadrunner could be a driver “as is” for many years! Hard to find one this original!! Asking $27000.00.
Barn finds are great, but this garage find on ClassicCars.com is exceptional

At some point, this coronvirus impingement will end and we’ll want to be out and about, cruising the highways and byways with our convertible tops down. A dealership in Fort Wayne, Indiana, suggests the Pick of the Day, a 1966 Lincoln Continental convertible, would be an ideal choice for the open road. “This is a […]
Larry Edsall, founding editor of the ClassicCars.com Journal, and I enjoy a mutual passion not only for the written word, but for motor racing in its many incarnations. We have been around the sport for longer than either of us cares to admit – but we both got to experience a gilded age, Larry in […]
Before I ever wrote about cars, I wrote about sports, albeit including motorsports, and one of the first things a young sportswriter learns, at least back when I was learning, is “there’s no cheering in the press box.” Your press pass entitled you to the best seat in the stadium or arena or whatever playing […]
