Plymouth Road Runner
The Road Runner. There’s still only one place to catch it. Only available for consenting adults in Naarden. Meep Meep!
In 1968, an American legend was born, which belongs in the list of Camaro SS, Mustang Shelby and the Dodge Charger. And that list is one that we are no longer allowed to make these days because of Greta. A list that makes every enthusiast’s heart beep a lot faster. The Roadrunner refers to the bird that flies the fastest. The wide hips refer to the broad tail of the bird, which is used to steer at speed and to brake. And say it yourself, that ass! No frills, high thrills.
A total of 31,988 Roadrunners were built in 1969, of which only 356 (!!!) were born with the beast-like 426 Hemi. As soon as you open the hood you are treated to the thickest thing that could fit between the front screens. Each cylinder a barrel from the carburettor to ensure plenty of roar and afterburn. Approximately between 425 and 490 HP, from the 7.0 litre V8 fed by the ‘Air Grabber(RRR)’. Every engine was different. Ours? Enough to live up to its name!
By the way, Plymouth paid the equivalent of 16.5 new RoadRunner to Warner Bros for the licence of the Roadrunner. You know; The bird that took off like a rocket, with a trail of smoke behind it. Our bird can’t wait to take on the long stretches again and show that fantasy and reality are sometimes no different. Will we see you soon? Meep Meep!I'm interested in this object
