For Sale: 1969 Plymouth Road Runner in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

A car like this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner was first popular for being one of the most honest muscle cars out there...but this one is fully lying to you. There have been solid investments in shining paint, a leather interior, four-wheel disc brakes, and an extra-strong V8. So this is the hardtop that initially looks like a true classic, but it's secretly rewarding for everyone who gives it a second glance.

We love these coupes because they have a blocky and authoritative style. It's in everything from the big rear fenders to those bright chrome bumpers that are wide enough to own the road. Matte black racing stripes on the front, the performance fresh air hood, and large exhaust tips are all part of this proper muscle car appearance. And those Road Runner cartoon graphics are iconic. But there's more going on here. The metallic of the paint has some extra luster, and it shows off some attractively straight panels. We have a contract showing $23k worth of paint and body work completed in 2010. It has also been under long-term care with little time on the streets. So the investment in quality still really shows. And the upgraded 15-inch Cragar wheels are part of a more aggressive stance that tells people this Road Runner is for both show AND go.

Open the door, and you'll find one of the best interiors you will ever see on a Road Runner. Where most of these are dark-and-stark budget classics, this car features a seriously attractive two-tone blue. And while this has a factory-correct style, you'll feel the difference when you sit down on the upgraded supple leather. The carpeting, headliner, door panels, and even the trunk all have the look of a quality investment. This is all quite vintage, right down to the working dome light and iconic pistol-grip shifter. But you'll also pick up on the right well-integrated upgrades like the AM/FM digital tuner and a full set of upgraded Dakota Digital gauges.

The engine bay looks awesome with the tidy style, bold block, finned Mopar valve covers, and the real working Coyote Duster fresh air grabber. This was the era of the 383 motor, but the secret here is this is the larger 400 cubic-inch B-block. The fresh air feeds the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and this mighty motor exhales with added power from the long tube headers. It also has the right supporting components, like a fuel pressure regulator w/gauge, an electronic ignition, and an aluminum radiator. It fires up with a nice rumble, and it runs with plenty of muscle, so it feels like a fully built package with a hot cam. And you get to take full control over it all with the numbers-matching four-speed manual transmission. Power steering, BF Goodrich T/A (new in 2019) and upgraded four-wheel power disc brakes make for a terrific total package.

Complete with build receipts, the horn might still go "Beep! Beep!" but the rumble this one makes going down the road means this is no kid's show. Call today!!!
