1973 Plymouth Road Runner
Up for auction is a genuine Roadrunner which was built into a high class race car for the local cruise nights. The person who built this car spared no expense and assembled it with top end, high dollar components. He also went to great lengths to maintain the originality of the car so it still has its original dash with working gauges,carpeting, rear seats, side and door panels, headliner, working lights, wiper, and signals, etc. The guy who originally built it planned to use it for car shows and cruise nights rather than full time racing but still wanted it to perform like the real thing. The car is an actual road runner and could be converted back at some point if you really wanted to. Because the headliner, dash, gauges, etc. are all original and in place, converting it back to original appearance would entail removing the roll cage and race seats and installing correct seats. Whatever was removed from this car could be sold for pretty good money. This car cost more than 40k to build it as you see here. The car comes with it's original fender tag and build sheet.Engine: Iron 440 block stroked to 505 cubes with ported aluminum Indy heads and gasket matched Indy Intake. Jet coated large tube headers, Holley 950 carb, MSD ignition and billet distributor. Aluminum radiator with twin flexalite electric fans. 3" stainless magna flow exhaust with magna flow mufflers with outlets under the car in front of the rear axle. The exhaust also has outlets in front of the mufflers which can be opened for racing or extra loud exhaust.This is a newly built engine with only a couple hundred miles of use...mainly just to get the car dialed in. new steel gas tank. In the driver area are a full set of racing gauges and also a data logger with air fuel ratio display. Dash gauges also work.
Trans: 727 built bullet proof tough with 3500 stall converter, reverse manual valve body, trans cooler, pro shifter, driveshaft loop, Line lock.Rear: Dana 60 rear with 3.73 gears and 35 spline strange axles.Suspension and brakes: 4 wheel discs, all suspension rebuilt with Cal Track setup in the rear, rear mono leaf springs, 15" Weld Star aluminum wheels with new Mickey Thompson 29x15.5 rears. The car has mini tubs to fit the rear tires but it was done so nicely that most peoplewouldn't know it. The rear seats and panels are not modified so all looks good inside. New Flaming River steering box.Battery is Optima gel battery mounted properly in trunk. Every bracket and bolt on this car is high quality stuff. Seats areKirkby race seats.Paint and body: The paint is what I would call a 20 footer. It has lots of shine to it but there are a few scratches here and there that hurt, mostly around the hood area. Couple of paintbubbles on the roof. Not rust but more like solvent pop when it was painted. The trunk area was also painted nicely. Also, someone had too tall of an air cleaner on it at some point and put a small upward dent in the middle when they closed it on the carb air cleaner stud. A lower profile air cleaner is in place now with has good hood clearance but the damage is done. Not terribly noticeable and probably not had to flatten out but it needed to be mentioned in this ad. Doors open and close nicely and the door windows roll up and down smoothly as well. All sheet metal is original steel and has zero rust. No fiberglass panels anywhere. This car has a full roll cage but it was installed very nicely and could be cut out if someone wanted the more stock look. No prior accident damage that I can find. Car is nice and straight.
This car could be raced full time if you want to but it was built for localcruise night fun. It is NOT a thrashed out race car on its last legs.This car is being listed for a friend. He bought itlast year and decided he'd rather have the money for a new project he's working on. Currently I have full access to the carsince it isat my house.If you have any questions, please ask and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.
