1968 Plymouth Road Runner

Share on:

Plymouth introduced the Road Runner concept in 1967 as a low cost muscle car intended for younger buyers. The car was based on the lightweight Belvedere body, and further stripping of non-essentials made the vehicle event lighter. In the bonnet was a highly modified 383 cubic-inch V8 engine tuned to produce 335 horsepower. The car could run from zero-to-sixty in under 7.5 seconds and even came with a horn that mimicked the Road Runner cartoon character's distinctive 'beep-beep.' The price tag for the Road Runner car was under $3,000 and was a huge success with over 200,000 units sold from 1968 to 1974.

The owner's father of this car purchased this car new, in the hardtop body style along with the decor package, two-tone interior and carpet. It was raced regularly at Detroit Dragway, accumulating many trophies. By 1971, the car had evolved into a full race car with Lexan windows and fiberglass body panels. The owner's brother restored the car to numbers matching factory condition in 2004.
