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 the first muscle cars were moving away from their roots as relatively cheap fast cars as they gained options. Although Plymouth already had a performance car in the GTX designers decided to go back to the drawing board and reincarnate the original muscle car concept. Plymouth wanted a car able to run 14-second times in the quarter mile and sell for less than $3000. Both goals were met and the low-cost muscle car hit the street.

Paying $50000 to Warner Brothers to use the name and likeness of their Road Runner cartoon character (as well as a "beep beep" horn which Plymouth paid $10000 to develop) and using the Chrysler B platform as a base Plymouth set out to build a back-to-basics muscle car. Everything essential to performance and handling was beefed-up and improved; everything nonessential was left out. This stunning 1968 Road Runner spent most of its life in Kentucky. The car was restored about 5 years ago in Bagdad Kentucky. The car is numbers matching without any replacement panels. The only addition made to the car was power steering and an Edelbrock carburetor.
