Finished in Go Mango over a black interior, this 1968 Roadrunner is a nicely restored MOPAR that’s ready to cruise the streets. The car has a ton of eyeball, and with the black steelies lurking in the wheel wells, the car looks ready to rumble.
The original 383 is gone and in its place sits the powerful 440 Magnum. The engine has been completely rebuilt and was Magnafluxed prior to the machine work. It was bored .030 over and has all new internals. Up top is a Holley style carb that flows through an Edelbrock aluminum intake. In true 440 form, the engine makes great power, lots of torque and is a blast to drive around town. Keeping things cool is a 22” fully welded 4-core aluminum radiator. The exhaust manifolds are stock and they flow into a 2 ½” exhaust system which puts out a nice and mildly lumpy exhaust note.
The body and undercarriage were both taken down to bare metal at a cost of over $15,000.00. The car was fairly solid overall, and received new quarters during the restoration. Two good condition doors were also sourced and the rest of the metal is original. The chrome bumpers were replated, and the stainless was refinished. The interior has original front and rear seat covers, new carpeting, new headliner and new door panels. Both the speedometer and tach were refurbished as well. All of the rubber on the car is new and the glass is in good original condition.
The car features a rebuilt suspension with all new polyurethane bushings throughout. The steering column was completely refurbished as were the steering components and shock absorbers. It has a a very stock feel to it and good ride overall.
For the MOPAR enthusiast looking for a street bruiser, this tough looking Plymouth is your answer.
