1968 Plymouth Road Runner bright blue metallic
All-original where it counts, but car has many new parts. Owned by a fanatic who did it right, and documented it all. Only 900 miles since resto. Great presentation, lacking in photos on the ebay page, more found on his web site dedicated to the car. Seller should have sold, but probably dumped more than high bid into car. Sunk costs principle applies.
1968 Original numbers matching Plymouth Road Runner 383 4-Speed. This is a second owner car that I bought from the original owner. He bought the car new in 1968 in Arizona and it was in storage for over 20 years in his garage when I bought the car. The car is totally complete down to the original hubcaps. Every clip, nut and bolt was on the car when I got it along with the build-sheet, original bill of sale, original window sticker and all the glove box paperwork. The car has 54,000 original miles on it and is totally numbers matching. This is a 383 motor with a 4-speed and an 8-Â¾ rear end. The paint is Bright Blue Metallic with a blue interior. When we got the car we pulled and rebuilt the motor but it did not require any boring so it is still stock bore. We honed the block, polished the crank and put new bearing, rings, timing chain, high-volume oil pump and all new gaskets. The heads were hot-tanked, trued, had three valves replaced and a new valve job done on them. The carburetor, water pump and distributor were rebuilt and the starter has been replaced. The radiator was recored and a third row added for additional cooling. The exhaust pipes were replaced with aluminized ones to resist rust. While the motor was out the entire motor compartment was stripped, painted and detailed with many new parts. The body needed lower quarters, which were installed, and the car was filled, blocked and shot in basecoat/clear coat the original blue. All the brake system was replaced with new wheel cylinders, shoes, lines and master cylinder. The entire fuel system was replaced with a new tank, fuel lines, fuel pump and the original carburetor was rebuilt and detailed. The rear-end has had new inner and outer bearings installed and the U-Joints have been replaced. The car still has the entire original interior and is in great shape and the heater core has been replaced. The only flaws are five holes in the headliner and a few cracks on the front seat. A new Legendary seat cover has been ordered and will be included with the car. The short of it is this is about as original car as you can find. The frame up restoration was done with concerns of keeping the car as original as possible. Since the resto the car has been driven about 900 miles and is a wonderful car to drive and enjoy.

Posted: 26 Mar 2003
From WikipediaThe Plymouth Road Runner was a muscle car built by the Plymouth division of the Chrysler Corporation in the United States between 1968 and 1980. In 1968, the first muscle cars were, in the opinion of many, moving away from their roots as relatively cheap, fast cars as they gained options. Although Plymouth already had a performance car in the GTX, designers decided to go back to the drawing board and reincarnate the original muscle car concept.
