1968 Plymouth Road Runner $43,995
This 1968 Plymouth Road Runner is everything you love about Mopar muscle. The big 383 V8, upgraded exterior, and the growling exhaust turn this lovable cartoon character into the aggressor, and you wouldn't want it any other way.
This is the kind of Road Runner that gets its distinction right. 1968 was the debut year for these budget burners. The blocky body has the unflinching authority of a police car. But even within this industrial aggressiveness is room for some great styling touches like the performance hood, bright chrome bumpers, and the rear fenders that extend past the wide rear light bar to create a frenched look. But what really makes this coupe standout is the paint. The deep blue has a nice metallic element that signals an investment in quality. The black hood stripe package coordinates nicely with the deep blue, but when the sunlight rolls over it, the matte finish gives this muscle car extra aggression. And no matter day or night, the reflective white pinstriping always grabs attention.
Open the door, and you'll find one of the best interiors you will ever see on a Road Runner. Where most of these are dark-and-stark budget classics, this car features a seriously attractive two-tone blue and white. We all love bucket seats and a center console – a sought-after upgrade especially on these Road Runners. And it all has that excellent look of preservation/restoration, right down to the factory AM radio that's still on display. But more than just a time machine, this is a driver's classic. You get an upgraded three-spoke wheel for the optional power steering, and beyond that are the easy-to-read factory gauges – including the desirable tach. This lets your senses know there's something quite powerful under the hood.
The engine bay is another place where you see plenty of devotion to detail. The glossy exterior paint funnels your attention to the big 383 cubic-inch V8, and with such a tidy setup, you can clearly see all the best parts. That includes the full Plymouth turquoise paint on the motor, and the special horn that gives this Road Runner its hallmark BEEP! BEEP! Plus, with that big bold air cleaner and correct Road Runner on top, it looks like a beacon of performance in the engine bay. Underneath that this big Mopar inhales deeply from Demon carburetor, and it exhales with authority out of the dual exhaust. The Torqueflight A727 three-speed automatic transmission does a fantastic job of handling this big V8's power. Plus, have you noticed the wheels? They look like classic Mags, but they're are modern 17-inch alloys. This allows for great grip with the new modern performance tires.
Complete with owner's manual, you're looking at a distinct Mopar that's well restored and absolutely powerful. So don't let this first-ever Road Runner pass you by. Call today!!!
