The Sixties are widely considered peak muscle car madness in the USA. Almost all the major American manufacturers had something on offer in the category. Plymouth was a rather late entrant, with the Road Runner in 1968. The Road Runner differed from the traditional muscle car by being more of a mainstream mid-sizer, albeit one that could only be had with two doors. A coupe, hardtop and convertible were the choices. In light of that, this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner Hemi is a rather special car, having undergone a reportedly award-winning full restoration by Full Scale Hot Rods, with Full MMC Detroit report available, as well as extensive history and documentation. It boasts multiple magazine features in print and online, including in Hot Rod Magazine and Motor Trend. Built on April 24th, 1969, this car is said to sport a low production VIN, and comes with known owner history. Isn’t that enough to persuade you to buy it? If you need more persuasion, read on.
Dressed in an extremely eye-catching Vitamin C Orange paint job, this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner Hemi will turn heads wherever it goes, with its low V8 rumble, quad headlamps, and silver five-spoke period wheels. It’s a silhouette that won’t be mistaken for any other muscle car of the time. All badging, including ‘Plymouth’ and ‘Hemi’ are present and correct. This car has clearly been cherished by its current owner. The black interior offers seating for four occupants on two bench seats, and has all the period accoutrements, including an AM radio with 8-track stereo. A Hurst gear shifter has been installed as well. All gauges and switches look to be in great condition after the restoration.
This 1969 Plymouth Road Runner is said to be sporting the original numbers matching 426ci (7.0L) Hemi V8 that is packing 425hp and 490lb-ft, which are serious figures in Sixties muscle car parlance. Drive goes to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. The original Dana 60 Series Trac Pac-A33 package is said to be installed, as is a Coyote Duster carb fresh air package. With all this, you can be sure that driving this car is going to be an event.
