1969 Plymouth Road Runner A12 Tribute

So Plymouth created the Road Runner in 1968 to address the entry level muscle car market, we all know that. However, when they decided to take the legendary 440 with a 6 Barrel carb configuration and plant those 390 horses under the hood of the lighter weight intro version of Chrysler muscle a whole new playing field opened up. Plymouth had created a high performance inexpensive street stormer that not only stimulated the physical aspect of a muscle car beyond norms of the day. Here is a full rotisserie restored tribute to that the days of torque, straight line acceleration, and pre smog. This one has all the right stuff, is in a great color, and runs great. It looks as good underneath as on top and the topside is fabulous. The original fender tag is in place and it codes out to be pretty true to original. Unfortunately we have not gotten a broadcast sheet with this one butt it does have it's original fender tag. It is powered by a 440 6 barrel V8 and 727 Torqueflite transmission along with a Dana 60 rear end, this one is a riot to drive. The Bright Red paint with black roof and hood treatment, that includes "A12 Air Grabber Intake" look fabulous on this fabulous Road Runner and it is easy to drive with power steering
