The Plymouth Road Runner was a budget super car, and the result was often a lot of abuse and rough handling. But that wasn’t the case with this spectacular example from the 1970 model year. With 39,175 original miles, this stunning car features its original drive train, paint and interior, and it had just a single owner until 2017. For those seeking an opportunity to own a truly well-preserved muscle car, this is it.The 1970 release was a pivotal end to the brutish, first-generation series of Plymouth’s B-body line. First introduced in 1968 to wild public response and impressive enough to be named Motor Trend’s “Car of the Year” in 1969, Plymouth’s Road Runner saw many optional pieces introduced for 1970. This car presents what a majority of the Road Runner’s youthful buyers could afford. Documented with the original broadcast sheet, this car retains its matching-numbers 383/335 HP V-8 engine, the special B-series engine first released in 1968 just for this car and featuring the better 440 Magnum heads and a more radical cam than the standard 383 engine received. This one has the 4-barrel carburetor, twin-snorkel air cleaner with “383 Road Runner engine” pie pan, 9.5:1compression and free-flowing dual exhaust ending in chrome tips. It is backed by the 727 Torque Flite automatic transmission and an 8.75-inch 3.23 differential.The bright exterior will make you pay attention, painted in premium High Impact FY1 Lemon Twist Yellow with the dust stripe factory-deleted and a black 383callout on the back of the hood blister. Inside is all business, including a split bench-seat interior in black with silver accents, radio delete, new-for-1970 podded dash layout with 150 MPH speedometer and working gauges, and driver’s-side remote mirror. Of course, cartoon Road Runner decals are noted throughout,and the Beep-Beep horn is under the hood. This is a premium hardtop body, but it made minimal use of accessories, and it rides on body-color 14-inch steel wheels with poverty hubcaps and Goodyear Poly glass F70-14 tires. Included in the sale are the owner's manual and warranty pamphlet. This car represents the raw essence of the Road Runner’s premise, and it’s a great opportunity to own a very original performance automobile.
