This is an absolutely perfect specimen of this mighty classic, and, it’s a Reader’s Ride! Here is a very clean 1969 (?) Plymouth Roadrunner, sent in by a fan!!!
The classic car insurance provider Hagerty.com, says that Plymouth’s goal in 1968 was to offer Detroit’s biggest bang for the buck. The new Road Runner, priced at about $2,900, proved to be just the ticket. Initially based on a bare-bones Belvedere sedan, this B-body came standard with a 335-horse 383 V-8, a four-speed stick and a beefed-up suspension.
The 426 Hemi was an intimidating option, both in price and power. Adding 425 Hemi horses into the Road Runner equation upped the ante by about a grand. Plymouth’s 1969 Road Runner won Motor Trend’s Car of the Year trophy on the way to becoming the muscle car market’s second best-seller.
