Plymouth added the Road Runner to its model lineup in 1968 as a bare bones performance car, built to a price for a generation of drag racers who did not need bucket seats for the negligible lateral g-forces of a 1/4-mile sprint. The standard engine was the 335 horsepower 383-cid Wedge V-8 with a four-barrel carburetor. It made tremendous amounts of torque and performed superbly. Road Runners came with standard Plymouth Belvedere equipment plus heavy duty suspension and shock absorbers, F70-14 tires on wide rims, armrests with ashtrays, a simulated air scoop hood and the Sport Satellite blacked-out horizontal bar grille. Road Runners also had high-pitched beep-beep horns and were whimsically identified with Warner Brothers' Wile E. Coyote-heckling flightless bird. One of the rarest of all known existing 1970 Road Runners is this original 440 Six Pack four-speed convertible. Only twenty Road Runner convertibles were produced with a 440 6 engine and the heavy-duty Hemi four-speed transmission. This car is the only one with the black exterior and burnt orange color combo. The engine and transmission are reported as original. This car was fully restored in 2005 using original and N.O.S. parts. It is documented with its original Broadcast Sheet, original Fender Tag and documentation. It was further qualified by being fully decoded by Galen Govier and registered in the Chrysler Registry. Restored in its original color combo of TX9 Black Velvet with a burnt orange deluxe interior and white top, it is clearly a very special show piece. A few of the significant options include the D21 Hemi four-speed, A33 Track Pack 3:54 Dana rear end, B51 power disc brakes, V8W white reflective tail stripe and the 26-inch Hemi radiator. Considered one of the most valuable musclecars of its kind, this Mopar is ready for the finest collection.
