About The Plymouth Roadrunner:

Introduced in 1968 by the Chrysler Corporation, the Plymouth Roadrunner was a musclecar that buyers could actually afford. Building on the Belvedere platform, Plymouth added a special 383-cu.in. big block engine. Engineers added high-performance cylinder heads from the 440 Super Commando with improved ports and 2.08/1.74-inch valves with a HP 440 hydraulic-lifter camshaft. Additional performance improvements included a high-rise cast-iron intake manifold and a Carter AVS four-barrel carburetor and a dual exhaust system. The Roadrunner engine was rated at 335hp and 425-lbs.ft. of torque. The legendary 426 Street Hemi engine was available. The standard transmission was the floor-shifted A-833 four-speed manual with an 11-inch clutch.


The interior was basic and included a bench seat and no carpeting, just rubber floor mats. On the outside the Roadrunner included decals from the famous Warner Brothers cartoon bird. A horn that went "beep-beep" was included. The base price of the Plymouth Roadrunner was $2896, for more information on the Plymouth Roadrunner visit our information section.
