1969 Plymouth Road Runner

Fantastic, solid 1969 Plymouth Road Runner project car. I have owned this car for 9 years. I have retired and am preparing to move out of state soon and need to find this car (and a few other Mopars) a new home before I go. It has a great running 1976 440 engine that I left stock on the inside. Has new electronic distributor and ECU, mopar aluminum intake, Mickey Thompson aluminum valve coves, new shorty headers, new oil pan, and new mini starter. I media blasted and powder coated the fan, pulleys, and misc other engine bay items. I installed a Keisler Engineering Perfict Fit 5 speed transmission kit, which includes a hydraulic clutch. Has an 8 3/4 rear end, open style with .323 gearing.
I have spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars on this car to get it to where it is now. Many, many parts are included (see list below). The main things missing are the windshield, carb and fuel tank. Also, I cannot find the instrument cluster. I removed it years ago to experiment with installing modern digital gauges and somehow misplaced it. The bucket seats I purchased are missing one seat track. There are 5 minor places that need metal patched. These are both lower quarters, drivers side rocker area and both rear window lower corners. (all areas are pictured) Patch pieces are included for each of these areas.
The remainder of the car is just incredible. There is only minor surface rust on interior and trunk pans. I have cleaned and painted (with Rust Bullet) the entire underside - which looks like NEW. There are new rear wheel seals, differential gasket, and new drum brakes and wheel studs all around.
I welded up all excess holes in the engine bay and painted it House of Color Tangelo Pearl. I smoothed the battery area, as I planned on relocating the battery to the trunk. After the engine and transmission was reinstalled, I temp installed the battery, ignition system, and a quart gasoline bottle and test drove the car to make sure everything was perfect. That was Spring of 2008. The car has sat (set?) idle ever since. I eventually lost interest and moved on to other projects. I removed the Edlebrock carburetor I had on it a few years ago and used it on another project.
There are no surprises with this car. It will be an awesome project for somebody. I am totally legit - just an old long-time Mopar hobbiest. My pictures and description show everything plainly and honestly. Please contact me if you have any questions or wish to see a pic of something specific.
