History

The Plymouth Road Runner was a performance car built by the Plymouth division of the Chrysler Corporation in the United States between 1968 and 1980. In 1968, he first muscle cars were, n the opinion of many, oving away from their roots as relatively cheap, ast cars as they gained options. Although Plymouth already had a performance car in the GTX, esigners decided to go back to the drawing board and reincarnate the original muscle car concept.

In 1971, he coupe bodywork was completely changed to a more rounded "fuselage" design in keeping with then-current Chrysler styling trends, ncluding a steeply raked windshield, idden cowl, nd deeply inset grille and headlights. In a departure from previous thinking, he B-Body two-door bodies shared little if any sheet metal, lass, r trim with the four-door bodies. The convertible was canceled. 1971 was a high-water year for ride and handling for the Road Runner.
