1969 Plymouth Roadrunner Clone. The original car was a 318ci 2bbl Satellite with auto trans and 7.5 rearend. Original options included: AC, PS, tach dash, fender lights, tinted glass, trunk light, vinyl top and 2-speed wiper. This triple black beauty was restored to a Roadrunner appearance.
The best of everything went into this 1973 440ci long block and all-new tri-power set up All forged internals were installed. The heads are a matching pair from 1967. All new stainless steel valves, guides, springs, retainers and locks, were installed. New cam, timing chain and brass freeze plugs. The exhaust system is new ceramic-coated headers with an all-stainless-steel “H” pipe Flow Master system. New fuel tank with new sender and larger 3/8” fuel line installed. It still has the stock steering system and has a stock drum brake system which was all rebuilt. New shocks and U-joints.
Transmission is a rebuilt 727 with a new mild stall converter.
Rearend is an 8 ¾ posi with 3:91 gears.
Paint is black with a deep, wet finish.
Undercarriage was restored and painted gloss black. Floors and frame are in excellent condition. The body has never been in an accident and the floor seating area is original with no replacement panels needed. The car was pretty solid when I purchased it 2014. The back window leaked causing the trunk pan to rust out in several places and there was the typical rust on the quarters. A new one piece trunk floor was installed. New full quarters were installed and only the outer wheel houses needed to be replaced. Most of the welds were spot welded just like the factory. The driver fender is NOS. The passenger fender is a rust-free southern piece. Inner front fenders are the originals. Hood is new. Doors and deck lid were from a donor car from the south.
New 235/55ZR17 front and 255/50ZR17 rear tires mounted on Custom 17” Magnum style wheels.
The whole black interior is NEW and in excellent condition. The dash pad, dash with gauges and wiring are all the original pieces from the car and were just restored not replaced. The car was originally a bench seat car but it’s a bucket seat style now with an all-new automatic console and new seat belts.
