In the late ’60s, if you wanted to go fast for not a lot of money, Plymouth was your brand and the Road Runner was your car. Launched in 1968, the Road Runner catered to the bare-bones racer who wanted performance over options. For about $3,000, the Road Runner outran a lot of other higher-priced muscle of the day, and that made it a legend among street racers looking for a performance edge.
This ’69 Road Runner features a 440-ci V8, 6-pack Holley carbs, and a 4-speed manual transmission that sends power to the ground through a Dana 60 Sure Grip rear with 4.10 gears. The seller says the car’s recently been restored and has 94,000 original miles. And while it wasn’t originally a 440 6-pack car, it’ll certainly run just like one now, if not better, and it’ll turn a lot of heads in the process.
The car features Mopar Performance ported and polished heads, an Edelbrock intake, steel crank, Mopar Performance valve covers, Flowmaster exhaust, and more. The paint is Go ManGo metallic and contrasts well with the black vinyl bucket seat interior, and the 15-inch Mopar steel wheels and Firestone bias ply Redline tires give it a good original look.
Over 2,400 1968-1970 Plymouth Road Runners have sold on eBay Motors over the past several years, with average prices ranging from $21k through $40k depending on originality and condition. This one has been changed from stock, but it’ll be a great driver.
