Vehicle Description

1969 Plymouth Roadrunner Convertible

Car History

The Plymouth Road Runner was a mid-size car with a focus on performance built by Plymouth in the United States between 1968 and 1980. By 1968, some of the original muscle cars were moving away from their roots as relatively inexpensive fast cars as they gained features and increased in price.

The Road Runner was based on the Chrysler B platform, the same as the Belvedere and Satellite, as a back-to-basics mid-size performance car.

Plymouth developed the Road Runner to market a lower priced, basic trim model to its upscale GTX. They paid $50,000 to Warner Bros.-Seven Arts to use the Road Runner name and likeness from their Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner cartoons (as well as a "beep, beep" horn, which Plymouth paid $10,000 to develop).

We have at Adventure Classic for sale a B5 Blue 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner Convertible that is drop-dead gorgeous and verified as a "real'" Roadrunner by its Vin Code and Trim Tag.
