Vehicle Description

For Plymouth, 1971 opened up a whole new world for the marque's B-body performance cars as the boxy lines of the previous decade gave way to a streamlined styling that was deemed textbook for the 1970s. Thanks to wind-tunnel development, Richard Petty would dominate the NASCAR series with this model that year. Being one of only 28 4-Speed Hemi Road Runners produced for 1971, this special Mopar, with its instantly recognized cartoon character name and "Beep-Beep" horn, is unique in other ways as well. Due to changes in emissions and insurance rates, it would be the final year for Hemi production, and this car carries forward the theme of "bad boy" in its factory TX9 Formal Black-on-black color combination accented by the over-the-top (roof, actually) white factory strobe stripe.
This car has been given a comprehensive restoration and is documented with two original broadcast sheets and an accompanying Dave Wise research report. With the car featuring original sheet metal and body panels with the original VIN and trim tags in place, under its Air Grabber hood is a correct 426 Hemi V-8 powerplant with dual 4-barrel carburetors, NASCAR-focused Hemi heads and bottom end, and factory-specific detailing. This A34 Super Track Pak car also has its matching-numbers 4-speed transmission and proper 4.10-geared Sure Grip Dana 60 rear. Power brakes, heavy-duty shocks and Hemi-specific suspension pieces complete its road manners. The exterior is accented by the Air Grabber hood with hold-down pins, dual exhaust chrome tips, white HEMI logos, Road Runner icon decals and insignia, dual chrome sport mirrors and hood insert blackout paint. The mostly original bucket-seat interior has the Hurst Pistol Grip shifter, power seats, the A01 Light group and rim-blow steering wheel. Of course, the crowning touch would be the Rallye wheels and wide Goodyear Polyglas GT F60-15 tires, both of which give the car a premium look to the fuselage body. The Road Runner is legendary, and it's fair to say that no coyote will catch this one.
