Plymouth Road Runner: lightweight, cheap muscle - Allpar (Mopar-enthusiast) website The Pontiac GTO may have started the muscle car wars, but Chrysler upped the ante with the Road Runner. The Allpar website continued: The Plymouth Roadrunner was a first in American automotive history: a high-power, but budget-priced muscle car, with light weight and strong engines. They were based on the mid-sized 'B-body' car (Belvedere/Satellite), but were lighter and cheaper. To get the maximum performance at the lowest cost, the Roadrunner slashed non-performance amenities.... Offered here in rare Lemon Twist over black is a historically significant, well documented, fully restored, 440-cubic-inch, V Code Six Barrel Road Runner in superb condition. At 70,625 miles-fewer than 1,400 miles per-year on average-this rotisserie-restored Plymouth performance legend has been lightly used and treated with the respect it deserves throughout its entire half-century life, up to and including its recent servicing in preparation for sale. Few cars represent American Muscle any better. This special (and specially equipped) Road Runner was built in November 1969 and owned by Alfred Cook of GoodYear Tire & Rubber from 1986 to 1999 when it was sold to Richard Janosik. His family commissioned the full, rotisserie restoration. The car has competed at the Mopar Nationals finishing third and was profiled in the May 2005 issue of Muscle Car Enthusiast magazine. The Road Runner's Lemon Twist paint finish is virtually perfect across the entire Belvedere 2-door-hardtop body (including under the hood and trunk), here with the added allure of the Air Grabber intake hood. The simplicity of the overall bodywork-free of some of the graphic excesses and extensive blackout trim of later versions-makes for a pure representation of the original Road Runner aesthetic. Still, Mopar aficionados won't mistake this for anything but the performance over-achiever it is. The 440+6-identification on the hood bulges, the road runner graphic on the rear-fender air scoops, and the small road runner emblem on the rear-deck make that pretty clear. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) The car's chrome bumpers and body trim is all in as-new condition free of patina. There is no damage whatsoever to the sheet metal. Cabin glass and all lighting lenses are similarly perfect. Factory original silver-painted steel wheels with trim rings are mounted with period-correct GoodYear® PolyGlas raised-white-letter tires. Inside, the straightforward, unobtrusive muscle-car aesthetic continues with smooth-finish black vinyl panels covering the seats, split-front and rear bench. (The flair provided by the white stripe trim on the seats is part of the rare and optional interior décor group.) Black carpeting and dash are similarly restrained. Instrumentation includes
