GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1968 Plymouth Road Runner for your motoring consideration. Paying $50,000 to Warner Bros.-Seven Arts to use the name and likeness of their Road Runner cartoon character, paying $10,000 to develop a "beep, beep" horn, and using the Chrysler B platform as a base, Plymouth set out to build a back-to-basics muscle car. Everything essential to performance and handling was beefed-up and improved; everything nonessential was left out.

This Road Runner came with the standard, exclusive-to-the-Road Runner, 383ci V8 rated at 335hp and 425lb.ft. of torque. Under the hood now is a 440ci V8 complete with an Edelbrock cast aluminum intake manifold, Hooker headers, 3” exhaust, aluminum radiator, a Demon carb, and Mopar Performance finned valve covers producing an estimated at 425hp matted to the optional 727 Torqeflight 3-speed automatic. It is a life-long Texas car and was restored roughly 2 years ago in Texas before coming to Michigan as a restored rolling chassis. Koffel's Place in Walled Lake, MI was commissioned to build and install the 440ci V8 in 2013. There is a 3.73 posi-traction rear-end installed and newer wheels and tires that set the look just right. It has no power options and the 45,000 miles is believed to be original. It runs and drives very well and would make a perfect weekend cruiser for any Mopar or muscle car fan.
