Step back to 1968, a year when muscle cars roared through the streets, and the Plymouth Road Runner stood as a symbol of power and performance. Now, imagine owning not just any Road Runner, but one of the rarest gems from that era – a 1968 Plymouth Road Runner, boasting a pedigree that commands attention and admiration.

KEY FEATURES: Ordered From The Factory and Verified by the Original Build Sheet

  • 426 CID Hemi Engine
  • 2-4 BBL Carbs
  • Hemi HD Torque Flite Transmission with Exterior Front Cooler
  • Tachometer
  • Sure Grip Differential
  • Power Brakes with Bendix Disc in the Front
  • Split Bench 2-Tone Seat

This Road Runner isn’t merely a vehicle; it’s a significant chapter in automotive history. Originally, Plymouth projected sales of just 2,500 Road Runners for the 1968 model year. However, demand far exceeded expectations, resulting in the production of 44,599 units. Among these, only 377 were post-coupes with the 426 Hemi option and the HD Torque -Flite Automatic Transmission making this particular model exceptionally rare. What sets it apart is its authenticity – both the engine and transmission are original, bearing factory partial VIN stampings that authenticate its “born with” status.

The journey of this Road Runner is meticulously documented, tracing back to its origins at the St. Louis plant on October 18th, 1967. Every piece of history, from ownership title copies to the original build sheet, fender, and VIN tag, is carefully preserved, ensuring its legacy remains intact.

But it’s not just about the paperwork; it’s about the experience. Picture yourself behind the wheel, feeling the raw power of the 426 CID engine with its dual 4-barrel carbs delivering 425 HP, propelling you forward with exhilarating force. The Hemi HD Torque-Flite transmission ensures seamless shifts, while features like power brakes, Bendix disc brakes, and a Sure-Grip differential guarantee control and stability.

This Road Runner is a time capsule, embodying the essence of a bygone era. From its buffed silver metallic paint to the iconic “Beep Beep” Road Runner horn, which Plymouth paid $50,000 for the rights to use the cartoon character. Every detail reflects its heritage and character. Even the radio and antenna were deliberately omitted, emphasizing its focus on performance above all else.

Included with the sale are not just memories, but opportunities to relive the glory days. Original documentation, a Galen Govier decode report, and a documentation notebook filled with verification photos ensure that the legacy of this Road Runner lives on.

Rarely does a vehicle with such a significant history come to market, making this opportunity truly unique. It’s a chance to own a piece of the past and make memories that will last a lifetime.
