For Sale: 1971 Plymouth Road Runner in West Chester, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

The year 1971 marked a significant turning point for Plymouth's B-body performance cars, as the streamlined styling of the previous decade gave way to a more modern aesthetic, setting the tone for the 1970s. Thanks to advancements in wind-tunnel development, this model dominated the NASCAR series, with Richard Petty at the helm. Among the rarest finds from that year are the 28 4-Speed Hemi Road Runners, each bearing the unmistakable cartoon character name and iconic "Beep-Beep" horn. This particular Mopar stands out not only for its scarcity but also for its distinctive features.

As emissions regulations and insurance rates shifted, 1971 marked the end of an era for Hemi production. This car embodies the rebellious spirit of its time, boasting a factory TX9 Formal Black-on-black color scheme complemented by a striking white factory strobe stripe along the roof. Meticulously restored, it comes with two original broadcast sheets and a comprehensive Dave Wise research report, attesting to its authenticity.

Underneath its Air Grabber hood lies a correct 426 Hemi V-8 powerplant, equipped with dual 4-barrel carburetors, NASCAR-inspired Hemi heads and bottom end, and factory-specific detailing. This A34 Super Track Pak variant retains its matching-numbers 4-speed transmission and proper 4.10-geared Sure Grip Dana 60 rear, ensuring formidable performance on the road. Additional features include power brakes, heavy-duty shocks, and Hemi-specific suspension components, enhancing its handling prowess.

Externally, the Air Grabber hood, dual exhaust chrome tips, white HEMI logos, and Road Runner decals further distinguish this car. The original bucket-seat interior is adorned with a Hurst Pistol Grip shifter, power seats, the A01 Light group, and a rim-blow steering wheel. Completing the package are Rallye wheels and wide Goodyear Polyglas GT F60-15 tires, lending a premium touch to its fuselage body.

Legendary in its own right, the Road Runner encapsulates an era of American automotive history, and this specimen is no exception.
