Plymouth Road Runner 1971 Description

You might not often see a 1971 Plymouth Road Runner tribute car, but look at this closely, because you're getting a heck of a lot of Mopar for the money. With a performance-built 360 V8 and a whole lot of attitude to back it up, this is quick classic coupe is pure intimidation.Black is beautiful. But this one goes the extra mile to mix the stealthy hue with an attention-grabbing silver lower portion and the bright strobe stripe up the C-pillar. The Road Runner was given its new fuselage styling in '71, which hid the front end behind a chrome bumper surround. The nose shields the headlights to make them look like a criminal trying to hide his face in a hoodie. So pulling up behind lesser car at a stoplight definitely makes for a sight in their rear view mirrors. Check out the profile where the silver paint starts at the grille, matches the hood accent, runs the entire length of this hardtop coupe, and finishes nicely under the rear bumper it's a great uniform touch to this Mopar. The menacing attitude is capped off by the 15-inch American Racing Outlaw wheels.The interior is just as fashionably dark as the exterior. The high-backed vinyl bucket seats have comfortable cloth inserts for long-haul comfort and fit your body better than any bench. The center console is another sought-after piece because its angular design not only does an attractive job of filling the space in-between the seats, but also it's in the perfect position to rest your arm while holding onto the floor-mounted automatic transmission. This has the dark wood panel insets that match the dashboard for a touch of class and color. There's a nice sports steering wheel upgrades, and ahead of that is a great set of factory gauges, including the large round speedometer. Yes, this one truly has all of your early '70s Mopar favorites.The moment you open the hood, you realize there is some serious muscle behind this black beauty. The engine bay keeps the sinister attitude going with the fined Mopar Performance valve covers, fined air cleaners, and fresh black wires and hoses. But beyond the appearance is some great performance. This 360 cubic-inch V8 has been bored .60 over and then given go-fast goodies like Keith Black pistons, reworked heads, performance cam, roller rockers, chromoly shafts, Weiand intake, and Holley 650 CFM four-barrel carburetor. Handling this big power is the TCI A727 three-speed automatic with reverse manual valve body and 3,000 stall converter by B&M. This feeds the new driveshaft and versatile 3.91 rear end. The whole package is backed up by reliable components such as a new aluminum radiator, transmission cooler, and new master cylinder. It's this kind of investment in the coupe that lets you know the motor fires up and makes a rumble out of the dual exhaust that's worthy of its intimidating appearance.Road Runners have always offered great power and at good price, but this one goes one step further. As an exceptionally well built tribute, you can get serious performance for a serious discount. All you have to do is be the first one to snatch up this deal. Call now!!
