For sale in our Chicago showroom is a one quick 1969 Plymouth Road Runner. The Road Runner name was introduced in 1968 as a trim level for the Plymouth Belvedere. The model was shoehorned between the highest trim GTX and the Satellite and was a huge success. The Road Runner sold double its expected numbers in the first year. This Road Runner is a real thrill getting it up to speed. The respray on the paint is showing some aging but still presents extremely well as a driver car. The body lines and classic styling are sure to turn some heads. This bird left the St. Louis assembly plant in 1969 with a 383 Cubic Inch V8 that has since been replaced with a 440 Cubic Inch Big Block V8 that sounds fantastic and will let your fellow motorists know you are on the road. Mated to that classic engine is 4-speed manual transmission running the power back to a posi-traction rear end. This car is ready for the street or the strip and features a fuel cell, large Autometer tachometer, and a SunPro gauge cluster to keep an eye on all of your performance. As you open the door you are greeted by the original-styled Mopar interior along with a newer Pioneer AM/FM Stereo with CD player, original dash and the unmistakable Roadrunner "Beep Beep" horn with center emblem and horn ring. Shifting is made easy thanks to the Hurst hand grip shifter and just one more thing that makes this car a blast to drive. This 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner can be seen in our Chicago showroom.
