A Great Find-A Restored 1968 Roadrunner
From the 383 V=8 engine to the 4-speed transmission this fully restored Roadrunner is a great find:
- Strong 383 V-8 (HP) engine
- 4-speed manual transmission
- Show-quality paint
- Like new interior
- Limited-slip rear
For those who like to decode cars, the VIN is RM21H8A305100
One drive in this Roadrunner will show you why these cars are so popular.
Great to Look at; Great to Drive!
- Paint and Chrome
The Dark Red paint on the car approaches show-quality. The just-detailed paint gleams and shows off the car’s great lines.
The black vinyl top looks like it was installed yesterday and is a great contrast to the car’s red body.
The chrome is in excellent condition, giving a wonderful finish to this Roadrunner.
The underside of the car appears free of rust [other than surface rust]
The upholstery is all in excellent condition from the bench seats to the door panels. The interior looks virtually new.
The 383 V-8 is a HP engine and its date code shows it to be period correct. The motor in this muscle car runs strongly and sounds throaty through its ceramic-coated headers and Flowmaster dual exhaust system.
The A-833 manual 4-speed transmission shifts properly and smoothly as one would expect in this Plymouth high performance car. It is linked to an 8 3/4 Sure Grip posi rear with 3:55 gears.
- Tires/ Wheels, Safety and Monitoring Systems
The 215/75 R15 (F) and 275/60 (R) tires mounted on Pro-Star wheels appear to have most of their tread remaining.
There are seatbelts for all.
The engine/systems monitoring gauges/lights (temperature, fuel, amp and oil pressure) work properly. Similarily, the lights, windshield wipers, patented Beep-Beep horn and turn signals all work. The in-dash tachometer will require some attentnion as will the heater fan.
A Roadrunner that you will Love to Drive!!
At the first turn of the key this car is a delight as the exhaust tones remind you that you’re in one of Mopar’s most popular muscle cars. Whether at a local car show, diner at a special restaurant or a night out for ice cream, you can be assured that this car will be noticed and admired by everyone who sees it.
This car represents not just a great driving experience but a sound investment as well. Apart from the investment value of this car, it is hard to put a price on the feeling of enjoyment when other drivers and pedestrians wave and give you a “thumbs up.” Remember, however, they are probably admiring the car!!
