The year was 1968. Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In made its debut on NBC. At the same time, Plymouth paid $50,000 to Warner Brothers -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). This beautifully restored example has the correct horn, but that is just the beginning. Painted a stunning Synergy Green, this Road Runner includes the numbers matching 383 CID V8 big block engine and 4-speed A833 manual transmission. The engine was completely rebuilt in 2017, just 200 miles since, including a fresh +.0030 bores. The factory 4-speed transmission is mated to an 8 3/4 rear end with 3:23 Sure Grip(posi) gears. This radiant and orderly engine bay must be seen to be appreciated fully. Updates include a heat and A/C kit by Vintage Air, updated wiring harness from American Auto Wire and all new brake & fuel lines. Other options include: seat belts, power brakes, electronic ignition, and front disc brakes. The quality work did not stop with the mechanics. This roomy interior is highlighted by new upholstery in black / silver vinyl that complement the OEM dash and gauges. You will feel the thunder of new dual stainless exhaust and Flowtech headers while firmly contacted to the ground by new 17" Retro Wheels and new Nitto performance tires. This fresh restoration demands to be shown, but once you get behind the wheel, look outside through all new glass at the road ahead and feel the high performance big block come to life, the journey has just begun!
