Some people claim that muscle cars were all but dead and gone by 1974 when this Road Runner was built. However, cars like this 440-powered Plymouth Road Runner GTX kept the flame alive providing plenty of torque for fans of burnouts and stoplight drags. Adding the optional 440 also meant special GTX identification that came along as part of the deal and remained so up through 1974, the last year for Plymouth's real Road Runner. Stock it had 275 horsepower which is not bad, but the number that really matters here is torque. With close to 400 foot-pounds of tire twisting grunt, these cars have plenty of muscle under the hood to support their bold looks. Only 386 of these GTX cars were produced. This car was built for the Canadian market and is a low mileage example of the rare Road Runner muscle cars. It has been repainted with its factory Burnished Red Metallic and is complete with the correct GTX appearance package. Fit and finish is very good and the car is just stunning with a rich luster and shine. The white vinyl top sets off the paint and GTX appearance package. The underbody of this car is unrestored but rust free and has been undercoated. The suspension is well maintained with fresh dual exhaust. Front suspension was fully restored when the motor was removed and features power front disc brakes and power steering. The white interior is largely original in very good condition with new carpet. This car is nicely optioned with full gauges and period correct Sun Super tachometer, rear defogger, AM radio and sport steering wheel. Under the hood is the numbers matching drivetrain, a 440 4bbl 275 hp with 400 ft lbs. of torque, backed by the numbers matching 727 automatic transmission. This power is transferred to the pavement via a 3.55:1 performance axle. This Road Runner rides currently on aftermarket 15 inch aluminum rims with raised white letter tires but the vehicle also comes with the factory 14 inch wheels complete with center caps and trim rings and the original factory spare tire. This car will be a stand out cruising the boulevard or pulling into your local cruise in.
