1968 Plymouth Road Runner Hemi Clone —-

Classics  /   /  By Jim Pickering

Rebuilt by a previous owner, this hard top ’68 Road Runner was originally delivered with a 383-ci V8. The “restification” (as the seller describes it) included one very powerful upgrade.

The engine is now a 426 Hemi with a forged bottom end and (painted) aluminum heads. The transmission is an IHRA pro-built 727 3-speed automatic, and the rear is a 4.10. “Probably not the car for you if you’re lacking in the testosterone department-it is FAST, attracts plenty of attention, makes lots of noise, and is very comfortable at high speed.”

The seller is not representing this car as perfect, and has been very straightforward about its minor needs.

Although he claims to have paid almost $70k for these keys just a few years ago, the muscle scene has seen an adjustment since then. The bidding has been active and was at $30,000 as of last night. If you’re looking for a nicely done muscle car, and don’t mind the Hemi upgrade at a bargain price, this is worth looking at.
