The Road Runner was the working man's affordable muscle car. The
GTX was the gentleman's upper scale muscle car. They came with at
least a 440 motor, bucket seats with a console, woodgrain trim and
more. This one is an excellent example having great fit and finish.
It runs strong, ready for show and go.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for
virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant
amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my
professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to
assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are
answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video
that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are

there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car,
your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year
