It's going to be harder to find a meaner example of Mopar muscle than this. With the big 440 V8 under the hood, and a Six-Pack on top, this one earns its mean air grabber leading the way. And while this 1970 Plymouth Road Runner is one of the fiercest birds around, it doesn't lose that charm we all love.
The sleek sliver paint is the result of a solid investment in this Plymouth. It looks so good that it will earn this hardtop a nickname like "Quicksilver." It also earns that name because this is a serious muscle machine. After all, it came directly from the factory with aggressive features like the optional hood pins, those large side scoops, and that big, bad Air Grabber hood that rises up and looks like it wants to consume all the lesser cars as it chargers up from behind. And we know you really love the Road Runner graphics that remind you about how this coupe can leave everyone else in the dust. But more than just the right color and muscle car features, we know you're attracted to this one because it shows there's been careful ownership in all the details. The panels line up nicely; the big chrome bummers rival the paint for shine; and the black stripes painted on the hood go nicely with the premium black vinyl roof. It's one great muscle Mopar.
Inside is a highly original-style interior, but you can also see there has been a big investment in making it look great. For example, the seats have the correct white trim look, but you can also absolutely feel that these are far fresher than stock. Even the trim on the setbacks is still in place. Plus, you have matching door panels, plush capering, a taut headliner, and a clean dash. Even the factory AM radio is still on display (but you remotely control an upgraded AM/FM stereo hidden under the seat.) You even still have the Road Runner center cap, and year, the horn gives off the hallmark Beep! Beep!
In 1970 the base V8 for these Road Runner was the 383 cubic-inch unit. That's a great motor, but it was no match for the 440 available for a lucky few machines. So another one of the big improvements to this coupe was a serious upgrade in the engine compartment to the top dog V8. And the big and bold air topper lets us all know that beneath it is the triple set of dual-barrel carburetors for the iconic Six Pack! All this extra muscle makes a thunderous growl thanks to long tube headers feeding a newer stainless dual exhaust. And it's easy to harness this enhanced V8 thanks to the stout Torqueflite 727 three-speed automatic transmission and power brakes with discs up front.
The horn might still go "Beep! Beep!" but the rumble this one makes going down the road means it's not for a kid's show. Instead, a stellar presentation that's ready for the car show. Call now!
