One of the past owners added a 1969 383 with a factory 4-barrel intake and Carter Competition carb. A 727 trans was added also. The rear is an 8 3/4 with 3.23 gears. They also added a more modern center console and tall back seats. The seats are covered in a dark gray/black tweed.
The previous owner added the steel wheels, new bumpers, new vinyl top, Year One hood, a new exhaust, the Roadrunner horn, Roadrunner air cleaner cover, Roadrunner emblems, and painted it in R4 bright red.
I bought it in the spring of 2017. I rebuilt the front suspension, new inner and outer tie rods, upper and lower ball joints, QA1 upper control arms for more caster/camber adjustment, shocks. While I had the front end apart I added a disc brake kit in the front. I've replaced the plugs, plug wires, cap, rotor, ECU. Shortly after doing all of this the heater core went. Instead of using the large old stock unit I decided to add a Vintage Air heater/defroster. I replaced the aftermarket gauges with new aftermarket gauges also. I took off the stock Carter Competition carb and replaced it with a Edelbrock 1406. Replaced the voltage regulator, alternator, and belts. I also cleaned up the wiring under the dash and hood. I added Rockford Fosgate speakers in the kick panel. I replaced the seat belts with a stock reproduction set. The company uses stock seatbelt hardware and adds new belt material. I decided to add rear shoulder belts which was a rare option (C14) in 1969-1971.
Since owning this car we've taken it on several road trips. The most recent trip was a 3 hour drive to the Charlotte Autofair. At 70mph it stays around 2900 rpms. You can let go of the steering wheel and it will drive straight. When you apply the brakes it stops in a straight line, it doesn't pull right or left.
It's not a perfect Roadrunner A12 clone. To be perfect it would need a 440 with a 6-pack.
The mileage is just over 60k. I believe this to be original miles due to receipts I have dating back to the late 90â€™s. One receipt from 1997 had the mileage at 47k. I have a bunch of receipts with the mileage going up over the years. I canâ€™t find any evidence of this car ever having rust. Itâ€™s one if he straightest classic cars Iâ€™ve ever owned.
I've brought this to three car shows and it's won an award each time.
I have this for sale locally and reserve the right to end the auction early if it sells.
