If you’re a Mopar collector, then you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to own the 1969 HEMI Road Runner “Buried Treasure.” With only 26,273 original miles, it is perhaps the most documented and accurately restored ’69 HEMI Road Runner in existence and is 1 of any estimated 20 1969 HEMI Road Runners made.
The engine is a 426-cid Hemi with a JE Piston, 0.060-inch over bore, Dick Landyprepped factory connecting rods and crankshaft, stock Mopar Performance valves, and a stock intake manifold with twin Carter AFB 625-cfm carbs and factory air cleaner. The engine also features a dual point Prestolite ignition with 12-degree initial timing and 34 degrees total, as well as a factory-original radiator and fan.
The drivetrain includes an original New Process A883 transmission, a Zoom single disc clutch, a Hurst four-speed shifter, and a factory original driveshaft. The car’s chassis features factory-original suspension with factory-correct markings, a factory original rear suspension with Hemi springs and stock HD shocks, a Hemi-torsion bar with factory-original front sway bar, and factory-correct markings.
The bodywork and paint were done by Neal Leslie and Full Scale Hot Rods, respectively, while the interior features factory-original-style vinyl bench seats, part of the Plymouth Decor package upgrade.
The car’s history is truly remarkable and is fully documented with professional authentication. It has been accurately restored to its original state and is a true Mopar collector’s dream. You can find the full write-up on Motor Trend, where it does the car’s history justice.
