Vehicle Description

A wonderfully kept older restoration with full comprehensive service in 2021! Awesome exhaust sound!

Named for the popular Warner Brothers cartoon character, the Road Runner, Plymouth manufactured it with no frills and few amenities in order to save cost and weight on top of the Belvedere platform. It would have the cartoon's famous "Beep Beep" sounding horn as standard equipment of course! Known for being far less fragile than its competitors at Ford and Chevrolet, the Road Runner was preferred by those who desired serious street applications in high-performance cars and is fabled to have been the favorite of Moon Shiners based on its power, light weight, ground clearance, and greater durability than its law enforcement counterparts. It would hit showrooms for the first time in 1968 with Plymouth engineers hoping to see 20,000 units produced. Their popularity achieved more than twice that figure! And today, these early Road Runners continue to be a favorite among MOPAR collectors and muscle car enthusiasts alike!

Offered here is a 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner Hardtop finished in code correct F8- Ivy Green Metallic over M6F- White/Green combination vinyl bucket seat interior. Powered by its number's matching 383ci-4bbl V8 engine, center console-shifted A727 Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission and 3.23 Sure-Grip 8� axle! This Road Runner comes with only the general go-fast amenities to include heavy duty brakes, heavy duty suspension, dash tachometer, basic solid state AM pushbutton radio with rear seat speakers, heat/defrost, upgraded chrome 14" Cragar SS mags wheels wrapped in staggered BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires measuring 205/70 up front and 225/70 at the rear, front sway bar, 3-speed wipers, day/night rearview mirror, front and rear seatbelts, and rubber floor mats.

It showcases an older cosmetic restoration that has held up extremely well over the years. In proper fashion, all necessary components were removed including all glass to perform a professional base coat/ clear coat finish to the exterior, door jams, engine compartment surround and interior trunk compartment. Panel gaps and fitment remain as it left the factory, very tight with everything opening and closing perfectly. The original Antique Green vinyl top was replaced for a White vinyl top in the process. A very good decision in our opinion. All new window seals and soft body weather stripping were installed upon the approximate completion in the late 1990's. The trunk seal was replaced again in 2021. A set of original Magnum 500 wheels are included with the sale.

More recently in 2021, it received a comprehensive mechanical servicing to include a new stainless steel fuel tank & lines, professionally rebuilt Carter carburetor, new fuel pump & filter; fresh Champion spark plugs, air filter & OEM plug wires; correct 2875731 distributor & date coded coil; complete engine wiring harness, starter relay, voltage regulator & proper alternator; new timing chain kit & oil seal; cleaned/repaired original radiator with new OEM style upper/lower hoses & heater hoses, proper pinch style clamps, thermostat & housing, & new water pump; all new brake system components with exception to the rear drums. It was upgraded with a power brake booster system and new dual master cylinder, then finished with a completely new OEM exhaust system with polished tips! A solid and reliable performer with a beautifully fresh under hood presentation! It will come with an original order broadcast sheet, reproduction window sticker, recent service & parts records, as well as copies of original Plymouth advertisements. Act quickly, we never keep these Road Runners very long!!
