This 1969 Plymouth Road Runner has a true drag racing kind of style that's for far more than just appearances. It's a proper race frame that's lightened and fortified. And at its heart is a thumping big block made for street-eating power.
When building a drag car or pro street machine , this is the ideal place to start. The 1969 Mopars had that mid-year A12 option that was out to dominate the Super Stock world. This one pays tribute to that style correctly with a fiberglass lift-off hood that has a scoop large enough to consume any lesser cars that get in its way. In fact, this one takes it a step further by having a fiberglass trunk and bumpers for even more weight savings. So you know it's a serious machine. And the small tire car aggressive stance with Weld Racing wheels makes sure no one mistakes it for anything but the top blacktop contender. So while that glossy paint is really maroon, when this one fires up, people may just start calling it purple. That's because it's so mean it's absolutely a people eater.
The interior is a pure race-ready attitude. In fact, the only concession seems to be a passenger seat so you can share the fun with someone who doesn't scare too easily. Kirkey race seats, RCI five-point harnesses, and a full roll cage are the kind of things that make sure this Plymouth is welcomed at the dragstrip. The dash is now a clean aluminum sheet design with all the essential readouts right in front of you, including a large AutoMeter Sport-Comp tach and bright shift light. All your functions are now clearly labeled on a Painless Wiring box, the brake pedal has a line lock, and the B&M shifter gives you a proper place to hang on. It's everything you need with no excess, because a car like this loses its luxury items to gain speed. Still, we can't help but love how the added Mr. Horsepower embroidery in the door panels reminds us that this Road Runner is a special kind of bird.
Under the beastly hood is the best part of this whole package. It's a 440 cubic-inch V8 that has been bored .60 over. It's enhanced and fortified with a big Holley double-pumper four-barrel carburetor, Holley Street Dominator aluminum intake, fabricated valve covers, and aluminum heads. It's supported by the right pieces, like an aluminum radiator w/electric fan, MSD blaster coil, steel braided lines, AN fittings, and the battery box in the trunk for better weight distribution. There's a wicked set of Hooker ceramic-coated long tube headers that make serious power and serious thunder as they empty directly below the car. The Torqueflite A727 three-speed transmission was one of the beefiest constructions around. And the rear end knows how to accept all this power with Calvert 9-way adjustable shocks, Caltrac traction bars, and those big Mickey Thompson Sportsman rear tires. Even the chassis is built correctly for a big power/torque setup with subframe connectors and the race cage extending through both the firewall and the trunk.
This car is a truly distinct machine. It is a proper quarter-mile king. It has the right equipment to let you hang a license plate on it in some states. And it's overall fit and finish will get it the prime spot at many car shows. So in total, this Road Runner is flat-out awesome. Call today!!!
