GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1968 Plymouth RoadRunner
Tribute for your consideration. Finished in K-2 Orange with a
standard black vinyl interior. Under the hood is a 383 mated to a 3
speed automatic transmission. The bench seat and column shifter
scream that it's a sleeper but the upgraded exhaust makes it hard
to hide this beast. Polished American Racing wheels covered with BF
Goodrich Radial T/A raised white letter tires finish the classic
Muscle Car look. So, if you are the market for a clean cruiser this
is the ride for you! Drive this one out of our showroom or have us
assist with shipping anywhere in the United States!
The earliest of the 1968 models were available only as 2-door
pillared coupes (with a B-pillar or "post" between the front and
rear windows), but later in the model year, a 2-door "hardtop"
model (sans pillar) was offered. The RoadRunner of 1968-1970 was
based on the Belvedere, while the GTX was based on the Sport
Satellite, a car with higher-level trim and slight differences in
the grilles and taillights.
The interior was spartan with a basic vinyl bench seat, lacking
even carpets in early models, and few options were available - such
as power steering and front disc brakes,1 AM radio, air
conditioning (except with the 426 Hemi) and automatic transmission.
A floor-mounted shifter (for the four-speed) featured only a rubber
boot and no console so that a bench seat could be used.
The standard engine was an exclusive "Roadrunner" 383 cu in (6.3 L)
B-series V8 engine with a 4-barrel Carter Carburetor rated at 335
bhp (340 PS; 250 kW) at 5200 rpm and 425 lb�ft (576 N�m) at 3400
rpm of torque.4 Its extra 5 hp (4 kW) rating was the result of
using the radical cam from the 440 Super Commando and a .25 raise
in compression to 10.5:1 (vs. 10.25:1 with the 330 hp (246 kW)
383). When air conditioning was ordered, the cars received the 330
hp (246 kW) version, because the radical cam specs of the 335 bhp
(250 kW) version did not create enough vacuum to accommodate air
conditioning. A $714 option was the 426 cu in (7.0 L) Hemi with 2X4
Carter AFB carburetors rated at 425 bhp (431 PS; 317 kW) at 5000
rpm and 490 lb�ft (664 N�m) at 4000 rpm of torque.
