Gateway Classic Cars of Fort Lauderdale is excited to present this
hot 1968 Plymouth Road Runner in it's original colors of Ember Gold
on silver & black. Let's get right to it: The VIN and data plate
both confirm this tire-frying Plymouth was born a real Road Runner,
with the 383 Hi-Performance 4Bbl V8, and 3-speed automatic
transmission. Plymouth's Road Runner was intended to be a
bare-bones, budget muscle car- stripped of the unnecessary features
most of the contenders came with. Light and simple, and very
capable. Pontiac's 1969 GTO Judge was intended to be a direct
competitor to Road Runners, but because the Judge option was above
the already well-equipped GTO, they were usually more expensive and
heavier that Plymouth's lighter, unibody secret weapon. And with
engine options up to the mighty dual quad 426 HEMI, most
competitors didn't stand a chance. All of Plymouth's performance
big-blocks were strong, fast winding, torque filled powerplants.
Pop the hood on this Mopar and take in the show-ready engine bay.
The fresh 383 is dressed to kill. The owner indicates the engine
and transmission were rebuilt in 2021 and only have 200 miles on
them since. Twist the key and this legendary Plymouth fires right
up. It has a hot loping idle signaling it is ready to dominate. The
paint and body are very nice on this car, including the gaps all
the way around. Likely better than when it left the St. Louis
assembly line back in 1968. The paint is smooth with a deep high
gloss. What a time it was in 1968, with cheap gas and all the
muscle and pony car rivals competing on the streets... as the
United States prepared to land humans on the moon the next year.
Cars like this one were in the $3000 dollar range new, and are
highly sought after in any condition. Today, they are coveted,
appreciating assets- having already proven themselves time and time
again decades ago. Some lucky person is going to buy this baby,
dial it in and and enjoy all the rightful attention it brings.
