Plymouth Road Runner 1969 Description

The 1969 Plymouth Road Runner was meant to be the kind of muscle machine that had only one purpose: dominate every piece of asphalt. And so this one has that perfect street-eating presence, from the huge scoop in the hood, to the pistol-grip four-speed, to the performance-built big block. Thus, you're looking at a very mean machine with the cartoon bird on the doors.This coupe has an instant presence. You see it in the chiseled sheetmetal that has survived the test of time. It has a look that's unmistakably Mopar without any apologies needed. The vivid Scorch Red paint is the product of a recent investment in a modern clearcoat application. It rivals the bright chrome bumpers for shine. Contrasting this is bright attitude is mean-looking lightweight fiberglass hood with securing pins and that massive scoop. This red and black theme comes together perfectly on the wheels where those industrial-duty steelies have bright redline tires. It's a total package that makes this red car instantly burn its image into people's minds.The black vinyl interior pairs well with the exterior red/black. These were midsize muscle cars, but that designation in the '60s means full-size comfort today. So there's plenty of room to carry four other family and friends, but you don't need any of them to have fun with this Road Runner. The bucket seats, center armrest, and the iconic pistol-grip shifter really let you know this is a performance machine at first impression. Beyond the three-spoke sports steering wheel (power steering) is the original gauge package with an auxiliary readout mounted below the dash. So you can know everything that's going on in the engine bay.But the real reason you want to own a Road Runner is the big block 383 under the hood. Painted in Hemi Orange with a familiar black air cleaner, it even stands out in the exterior-matching red engine bay. This was born an H-code 383 car, and so it's great to have its period-correct V8 under the hood. Plus, it's been enhanced for even more power thanks to an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Torker intake, and Hooker Competition long tube heads. The V8 idles nicely before you're ready to unleash the full sound and fury that comes from the control of the four-speed manual transmission. Out on the road this total package delivers smile-inducing acceleration, and that wave of big block torque that made these cars the Saturday night kings back in the '60s.The Road Runner's cartoon graphics and "BEEP! BEEP!" horn make people love this car just for showing up. But the real secret to this one is the big block and four-speed will already have you grinning ear-to-ear by the time you arrived. So don't let this memorable mean machine slip through your fingers. Call today!!!
