1968 Plymouth Road Runner

High performance with a low sticker price has always been the Road Runner's calling card. Today, they're highly-sought collectables due to the fact that the formula still works. This particular 1968 Road Runner offers a coordinating build date 383 big block, four-on-the-floor, an ultra-clean interior, and an aggressive red exterior. All of this will make you smile every time you turn the key in a package that still won't break the bank.This is the kind of Road Runner you love to discover. 1968 was the debut year for these budget burners. The blocky body has the unflinching authority of a police car. But even within this industrial aggressiveness is room for some great styling touches like the Mag wheels, and the rear fenders that extend past the wide rear light bar to create a Frenched-in look. But what really makes this coupe standout is the color it's the original shade of Matador Red. Today this attention-grabbing color has an exceptional luster in the sunshine because it benefits for a later professional respray that showcase all the advantages of modern paint practices. Road Runners were all about getting down to the business of speed, and that's exactly what this interior tells you. Sure there's room for six across the benches, and the seats and door panels have some great correct panel stitching and trim. But once you slip behind the wheel everything else melts away. You turn the key to hear the rumble of the dual exhaust, grab the stick shift, and take off for adventure (even if you're just on a milk run!)You know exactly why this one gets your heart racing the moment you lift the hood. The 383 cubic-inch V8 in the engine bay could be the original RB code, High Output motor this MOPAR got from the factory (the date codes are tantalizingly close!). It delivers smile-inducing acceleration and that wave of big block torque that made these cars so popular with young buyers in the '60s. With that big bold air cleaner and correct Road Runner on top, it looks like a beacon of performance in the engine bay. Underneath that this big Mopar inhales deeply from an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority through long tube headers that feed the Flowmaster system. The A833 four-speed manual is the perfect complement to the V8 to make for an unbeatable power package. Add in power steering and modern radial tires, and this is a great package for cruising or powering down the boulevard.Big performance, reasonable price. It worked when these first debuted in 1968, and this Road Runner still delivers today. Call now!!
