1968 Plymouth Road Runner
Why This Car Is Special
The Plymouth Road Runner is a mid-size car with a focus on
performance built by Plymouth in the United States between 1968 and
1980. Plymouth developed the Road Runner to market a lower priced,
basic trim model to its upscale GTX.
We have a sharp restored red "real" 1968 Plymouth Road Runner that
is very original here at Skyway Classics. It was a purpose-built
muscle car and meant to go fast while retaining a spartan look and
interior, meaning less weight and frills.
This is a correct RM23 R code 383 car, which means a lot today as a
lot of Satellite clones pretend to be a Road Runners. Not the case
here, this is a real one!

It is powered by the Plymouth performance built, what we believe to
be, numbers matching 383 cubic inch V8 engine with a three-speed
automatic transmission on the column.
The 383 comes with the factory stock intake, valve covers, heads
and block with a four-barrel Edelbrock carb, performance plug
wires, Black factory Air cleaner assembly with the correct original
decals, long tube headers and dual exhaust, power brakes, and all
sitting in a very nice, original, clean, painted, and detailed
The 383 cubic inch engine was standard with the 426 Hemi the only
option available for the Road Runner until mid-year production.
The red/black vinyl factory looking interior has bench seats,
matching rear seat and door panels, three-spoke sports Road Runner
steering wheel with the Beep-Beep Roadrunner horn, the original
gauge package and auxiliary tach and mounted gauges below the dash,
red carpet, Road Runner emblems, and a stereo radio system.
It has a lot of originality to this interior and it looks as it did
back when it was new.
The Matador Red paint scheme with the lift-off fiberglass hood and
scoop really pops and the muscle car lines look super as well as
the front and rear chrome bumpers, glass, trim, and it has the
right factory stance too with the raised white letter BF Goodrich
Radial Ta's that it rides on mounted on the black and chrome
factory styled steel wheels and chrome lug nuts.
It has the famous Road Runner cartoon graphics that Plymouth paid
$50,000 to Warner Bros.-Seven Arts to use the Road Runner name and
likeness from their Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner cartoons (as
well as a "beep, beep" horn, which Plymouth paid $10,000 to
develop) that our car still has.
