If you know the RARE B-Body Hemi-4 Speed Road Runners, you know a few important key points… They are not all restored or maintained the same. I came across this car when I was not really looking for one but just had to get it. The car was Frame-Off restored about 20 years ago and it appears as if it were completed a year ago. After receiving the car from Floyd Garrett’s Muscle Car Museum (Sevierville, TN), I sent it to a Daytona, Florida to be completely gone through and prepared for safe and reliable driving duties again. Two months ago, Also, we replaced the tires, had the correct Radiator completely dissembled and re-cored as well as new plugs / related, and going through the carburetors and fuel system. This car now runs and drives so unbelievably well it is a true pleasure to get in and go anywhere and everywhere.

These High-Horsepower B-Bodies are Very Hot, Very Collectable, Very RARE, and when restored right, looks and drives great!

One of my all-time favorites, I love the feel and sound of this car and would not be afraid to take it anywhere! The engine has the perfect blend of torque and really makes for a true Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde machine… Slide behind the wheel, hit the key and take off…it’s that simple. This is a car for shows (any level), cruise-ins, or investment grade for a museum or collection. This car NEVER runs over 185 degrees. It has been at my buddie’s house in Daytona, Fl for the past few months being tuned up, getting it mechanically sound and it withstands the Florida heat with zero issues.

Things work as they should including but not limited to Headlights/Taillights, Signals, Interior Dash, Gauges, Heat, Speedometer, Tach, Wipers, Horn, Courtesy Lights, Clock, etc.

Is this Hemi Road Runner perfect? No and none of them are… I consider myself very particular and am usually much more critical of the cars in my collection than anyone else but try to be very forth-coming with details. In addition to my notes in the component descriptions above, the only thing I can say for sure is that the radio is currently not working. And the Tach works 90% of the time but, a new Tach has been purchased but not installed [Goes with the car] That is about all I can think of…

Why am I selling it: For the most part, its space… I have a couple of other old vehicles in my friends shop that are close to coming home.

I reserve the right to end this auction early due to having it for sale locally... I am pricing this car to sell and believe it will not last long so, do not hesitate to buy and please do so with absolute confidence! Please have finances in order prior to bidding as well. Purely as a hobby, I have been blessed to sell cars to buyers all over the country and internationally in my 25 years of collecting and take tremendous efforts in keeping a 100% feedback…that said, I have tried to be honest and accurate in all descriptions. I encourage however all to inspect this vehicle in person prior to bidding so that you can confirm my notes above. You can contact me with any questions at mdescamp@comcast.net or (865) 384-6017.

Note: I have a clear Tennessee Title in My Name for my Road Runner…I am not a business, and this is a personal collection vehicle.

If you are the winning bidder, please expect to send a $2,500 deposit within 72 hours and have plans to pick the car up within 7 days.
