History of the event
The Plymouth Road Runner was marketed from 1968 to 1980, with a wide variety of models and continues to generate real interest among collectors. The most beautiful era of the Road Runner was 1968-1971, when it was the most powerful of the muscle cars sold in the United States thanks to its Chrysler Hemi engine.
The most powerful engine that the Road Runner had in its range, as an option, was the Hemi 7 L (qualified as "big block" because the engine is typified long stroke, i.e. the piston stroke is greater than its bore; privileging engine torque over power, and therefore greater reliability) of 425 hp. This engine gave the car a reputation for taking 13.5 seconds to travel the dragstrip (402-metre dragster track, right). The roadrunner is often confused with the Plymouth GTX, which is its high-end version designed on a Plymouth Satellite basis, giving it a larger trim. The Road Runner, unlike the Plymouth GTX, was designed on a Plymouth Belvedere basis. The 1968 Dodge Super Bee was the counterpart of the Road Runner in Chrysler's sports division, Dodge. There was also the Plymouth Superbird, which was a derivative of the Road Runner designed for NASCAR racing, also on the market. It differs from the Road Runner by its long nose and large rear spoiler. The Road Runner was the most powerful American car on the market at that time. Later it lost its vigour after the first ecological reforms of 1971, which marked the end of the American muscle cars era, the race for power.
Coming from Switzerland, this Roadrunner has had 2 owners in France and has been the subject of great care. A complete file will be submitted to the owner level. The car is in very good condition and comes with a beautiful paint, complete stickers featuring the bird of the Warner Bros., perfect upholstery with impressive mechanics and on vitamins.
At the wheel, a feeling of extreme power tickles you to fetch the accelerator pedal and send the Watts, because yes the noise is bewitching and the bird rears up to show you that it is not only a cartoon, there are many under the pedal! Braking is powerful and the car is very flexible to drive, with power steering strongly helping to manoeuvre this Roadrunner. The 2 exhausts sing wonderfully and surprise when the car has decided to leave you there. Today's modern cars will find it difficult to compete.
The mechanics have a hell of a health and its maintenance is obvious. The car runs regularly and is highly reliable, which is a sign of confidence for a future buyer who wants to drive often and quickly. The gearbox is one with the engine and suffers no fatigue.
Note 2 corrosion points on the rear left wing and a sill that should be monitored!
If you want a muscle car that is reliable, this is a unique opportunity to acquire a legend in an exceptional configuration!
