Strip it of unnecessary bits, add some nice wide wheels and lower it until it looks ready to roll up asphalt with the front end. Sure, there are exceptions but, for the most part, those three things will at least get you on the right path. Back in the late '60s, Plymouth decided to roll out their own track monster so they did what anyone would do. They stripped it, added a monster motor, decorated it with cartoon characters and gave it a goofy horn. Sure, maybe those last two don't sound so tough on paper, but we guarantee one full throttle run in this awesome '69 Road Runner will instill a lifelong respect for that cartoon bird and his signature beep. Fresh out of a frame up restoration, this B-body features the A34 Super Track Pack, N96 Fresh Air Package, a mighty 426 Hemi and a Hurst-handled A833 four-speed manual transmission. If you're in the market for one of the muscle car era's most memorable players, this killer blue Road Runner is a great addition to any garage. BODYWORK/TRIM Plymouth designers took the basic idea of stripped-down racer and translated into one of the most sturdy looking designs of the muscle car era. Comprised largely of straight lines and angles, the Road Runner doesn't look muscular like most of its competitors it looks indestructible. This B-body looks especially tough in its coat of B7 Jamaica Blue paint with longitudinal white stripes accenting the body lines. The performance hood features wide satin black stripes topped off by functional orange vents that draw cool air into duct work on the underside of the hood. Fresh out of an extensive restoration, the paint work is first rate and displays a level of depth that factory sprayed cars simply can't compete with. The color itself is impressive with tons of metallic flake that disappears in low lighting but comes alive in direct sunlight. Shot over impressively straight panels, the car makes a great first impression. Panel fitment is equally good with steady even gaps all around. Chrome is heavy in a physical and visual sense. To keep the weight down, Plymouth designers kept their use of shiny bits to a minimum. Looking at the car head on, a single strip of stainless wraps around four Philips headlights and a simply square grille that keeps with the cars hard lines. Below, a show quality chrome bumper houses turn signals and a recess for the license plate. The side profile remains largely free of distractions with only front and rear marker lights, chrome door handles and Road Runner badges. Under the angled roofline, clean glass surrounds the interior, framed by dent-free stainless trim pieces that provide a nice contrast against the dark blue paint. Out back, two square taillights are angled inward, framing the lower portion of the decklid. Another chrome bumper, two chrome exhaust tips, a discrete Hemi badge and one final Road Runner badge complete the look. Of course, it's impossible to talk about Road Runner details without covering the bird itself. The Chrysler Corporation spent roughly $50,000 borrowing the character from Warner Brothers and its presence can be found on both doors, the decklid and several other pieces we'll cover in the next few paragraphs. ENGINE From the name to the design, the Roadrunner was built with one intention eliminating stop light competition. While the base 383 was nothing to laugh at, it was the 426 Hemi that made the car a legend. The Elephant in this B-body wears a 24683
