1968 Plymouth Road Runner

This pristine, irst-year Road Runner is the beneficiary of a complete, rame-off restoration with a goal to keep it as original as possible. Only small modifications were made during the 6-year process, ither when original parts weren't available or to simply improve drivability. You won't have to chase details like the Coyote chased his dinner: photos and receipts from the restoration are available.The Cool Vanilla paint is as good as any new car. We're hard pressed to find a flaw in it. It's a good look, nd the hood vents contrast nicely. Its sharp-looking 17-inch Bandit wheels by U.S. Mags are well suited to this crisp, hite car, nd modern radial tires won't wander like the old bias-ply type. This is an original Texas car: The seller claims all the sheetmetal is original, ith the exception of the front fenders. The originals were in good condition, ut had been cut at some point to fit wider tires. Satellite fenders-OEM, ot aftermarket-were used instead.The restoration work continued inside with high-quality parts. The restorer sourced new interior pieces from Legendary Auto Interiors that are correct to the car. An aftermarket three-spoke steering wheel features a beefy wooden rim that's a pleasure to look at, nd aftermarket gauges mounted under the dash provide a bit more information about the engine's health than the original Road Runner instrument cluster does. An AM/FM/CD player is mounted out of sight, nder the passenger seat. The car was originally equipped with air conditioning, nd that system has been upgraded on the other side of the firewall with Classic Industries components. That should provide welcome relief for a midsummer drive.Speaking of heat: The 383 cubic inch V8 under the hood doesn't hesitate when it's fired up. This engine, ike the rest of the car, s fresh off a rebuild to the original specs, ith just 800 miles driven to sort any potential problems. It looks clean enough to eat off of. A Pertronix distributor should make tune-ups a little bit easier, nd the Edelbrock 750 carburetor has an automatic choke that works well. It looks extremely clean underneath as well, t appears as if nary a bolt was reused without at least being cleaned.If you're looking for a Road Runner that has been meticulously restored, ou've found it. This car is a beauty, nd with just a few upgrades done to make it livable in a modern age. It's completely turn-key: Just fire it up and drive it home. If anyone fails to notice you-unlikely as that is-you can always draw their attention with the horn. Meep meep! Call today!
