The sleek style and cool/correct color combo already make this 1971 Plymouth Road Runner a true Mopar of distinction. So it only gets better when you see that the numbers-matching 383 V8 has also been upgraded to fuel injection.
<br><br> The factory-correct Bright Red is a nice muscle car color. It was resprayed later in life, and it remains clean and complete today to set the tone correctly for this coupe. The Road Runner was given its new fuselage styling in '71, which hid the front end behind a chrome bumper surround. The nose shields the headlights to make them look like a criminal trying to hide his face in a red hoodie. So pulling up behind a lesser car at a stoplight definitely makes for a sight in their rear view mirrors. In fact, this hint of a dark side continues as the grille coordinates with the black on the performance hood treatment and side strobe stripe that runs all the way over the top of the car. You may choose to upgrade some details, like refinishing the black accenting package, but overall the true attractiveness of this one reminds us of why we love the look of Mopar muscle. It's in the details, from the Rallye wheels (with extra meaty rear ones for an awesome stance) to the Road Runner cartoon on the rear deck...and yes, the horn still goes "BEEP! BEEP!"
<br><br> White interiors are another one of those great 1970s details. This factory-correct style looks classic and preserved on the upholstery, door panels, and headliner. And black carpeting means you don't have to dust off your shows before hopping inside. More than just distinctive, this has the right vintage premium feeling with high-back bucket seats, a center console in-between, and plenty of wood-like trim. And this one loves to turn up the time machine feeling with the right details, like the working dome light, heat/defrost controls, and key buzzer. Even the correct Chrysler AM radio is still there for display.
<br><br> The classic style continues under the hood, but with a very cool twist. There's a bold presentation with the red inner walls and the correct Mopar orange on the block and valve covers. This is the desirable numbers-matching 383 cubic-inch V8. It has the right vintage look, right down to the air grabber w/callout. But if you look underneath that, you'll spot the upgrade to a Holley Sniper electronic fuel injection. This kind of modern addition means this mighty Mopar fires up nicely, idles smoothly, and accelerates strong. This is a solid driver, and features like power steering, power brakes, front discs, and the A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission make it a great cruiser.
<br><br> The sale comes complete with owner's manual and the original warranty card. This Road Runner has the classic Mopar muscle look and a nice upgrade to its original V8 heart. So you know you want to get your hands on this coupe. Call today!!!
