Now available by The Motor Masters is a 1968 Plymouth Road Runner for sale. Most of the time, the lack of options hurts the value of a car, but with the case of this 1968 Plymouth Road Runner, the bare-bones street-brawler look really works. No bare bones, just a built 440, a 4-speed transmission, and nothing to get in the way of going fast. Yeah, I can definitely have this car.
The Road Runner got it correct. When everyone else was trying to make their cars all items to all people, Chrysler simply said that the Road Runner would be fast and inexpensive. As a result, they sold tons of them and marched right into the hearts of today’s enthusiasts who grew up with them. They also look quite nice, with chiseled sheet metal that has survived the test of time and a look that says Mopar without any apologies necessary. The bright white paint really shows it color and shines bright, however, it looks awesome, especially with that blacked-out hood treatment! The raised line along the quarter panel is very sharp, gaps are quite great, and the correct badges were used throughout to retain that personality that defined the fun and wacky Mopar muscle cars of the period. You’ll also find bright chrome and a nicely finished tail panel that shines when the sun is shining.
You couldn’t get a 440 in 1968, but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t install one. Thanks to Mopar Performance, the big block sits right in there and looks great, topped by a set of finned valve covers and a chrome air cleaner that wears reproduction deals for a factory-ish look. Gold paint on the block and heads is a nice contrast to the bright white body paint, and a few polished and chromed details make this an engine bay worth showing off. It’s backed by a 4-speed manual gearbox and an 8.75-inch rear end, so don’t be afraid to hit the gas pedal and spin the tires now and then, it can take it. Long-tube headers and fresh Flowmaster dual exhaust system have an growling , sound behind the big block and looks great against the shiny black chassis. Flashy Keystone wheels are both traditional and stylish and wear Goodyear Eagle GT II white-letter radials.
Vehicle has 440 engine with 4 speed manual transmission. Has a super solid body, super clean interior. The original 383 motor is also included in sale car. This gem runs and drives absolutely perfect. Don’t miss out on this 1968 Plymouth Road Runner…give us a call TODAY!
