For Sale: 1968 Plymouth Road Runner in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1968 Plymouth Road Runner is everything you love about Mopar muscle. A distinct color combo, four-on-the-floor, and plenty of V8 power under the hood. And as you look over the details on this one, you can see a careful eye to invest in its style while keeping everything feeling quite vintage.

Some cars are triple-black, but when you're a 1960s classic, it's hard to deny the appeal of triple-green. The factory-correct Avocado Green has the shine of a more modern application, and so it sets the tone right for a car that has been given the right investments to remain both very vintage and very attractive. Crisp lines, well-fitting doors, vent trim hood, and classic Mopar road wheels with redline tires make for a striking muscle car. Plus, the trim tag tells us the distinct green vinyl roof is a factory-correct piece. And this one also shows off plenty of its cheery charm. The wide B-body design means the chrome bumpers look like a huge grin at both ends on the car, and of course, it wouldn't be a true first-year Road Runner without the Warner Brothers bird making a speedy getaway on each door and the rear panel.

The green interior joins the paint and roof to complete the distinct triple-green style. In fact, with the interior done in a two-tone, we could even call this quadruple-green. It's this kind of unique factory presentation that lets you know exactly why it was worth the extra time and money to restore this coupe correctly. It's also exactly why you'll love rolling down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop just to show off the full package. The carpeting is plush, the headliner is taut, the door panels are wonderfully detailed, the dash is smooth, and two-tone green seats are clean and complete, right down to the bright trim on the seatbacks. You can tell this is a driver's car by desirable upgrades like the Hurst shifter and oil pressure gauge under the dash. Desirable features, like the factory tach are just still there for display. But you'll be impressed at the level of working vintage features, including the AM radio and dome light. And yes, the horn still has the cartoon BEEP! BEEP!

The engine bay is just as clean and complete as the rest of the car, and so you know you'll love lifting the hood to show off the big block at car shows. The 383 cubic-inch V8 looks correct with the Chrysler Blue paint on the block, big Road Runner air grabber with correct decals, clean Mopar hoses, and the overall tidy presentation of a thoughtful restoration. In fact, you'll have to look hard for upgrades, like the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor that lets the mighty motor inhale deeper. The four-speed manual transmission gives you proper control over the power and the rumble of the dual exhaust. A true Road Runner likes to let you feel the road, but this coupe gives you some easy driving feelings with the power steering.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and a restoration photos book. This is the triple-green true classic that's a ton of fun. So don't miss this Mopar, call today!
