1968 Plymouth Road RunnerWhat I'm selling is a mostly restored 68 Road Runner. I started restoring it about 8 years ago but am selling it because I don't thinkI amgoing to get around to finishing it. It has tons of new parts (less than 1,000) miles on everything listed.
Motor:It has a 500 cubic inch Indy cratemotor. The motor has ceramic coated headers with custom aluminized exhaustpipes.It produces 676 hp at the flywheel and 648ft/lbs. of torqueusing 92 octane gas. At no point in the power curve does this motor produce less than 500 foot pounds of torque. There is an 850 CFM Demon carburetor on a high rise intake. It is cooled by an aluminum BeCool radiator with twin electric fans.
Drivetrain: It has a Tremec 5 speed with a Hurst pistol grip shifter. A new clutch, pressure plate and driveshaft were installed with the transmission. It has a 4:10 Dana rear end. There is a set of brand new Hoosier 275/60/R15 tires on the rear and a set of Firestone 205/75/R15's up front. All are on Weld wheels.
Electrical: The engine compartment wiring has all been replaced and upgraded. There are separate systems for "always hot" and "hot with key in the on position". It uses an MSD pro billet distributor and an MSD spark box. There is a battery shut of switch under the back bumper. The battery has been moved to an aluminumbattery box in the trunk.
