Description:

1968 Plymouth Road Runner Hemi   History   The Plymouth Road Runner was a performance car built by the Plymouth division of the Chrysler Corporation in the United States between 1968 and 1980. In 1968, the first muscle cars were, in the opinion of many, moving away from their roots as relatively cheap, fast cars as they gained options. Although Plymouth already had a performance car in the GTX, designers decided to go back to the drawing board and reincarnate the original muscle car concept. Plymouth wanted a car able to run 14-second times in the quarter mile and sell for less than US$3000. Both goals were met, and the low-cost muscle car hit the street. The success of the Road Runner would far outpace the upscale and lower volume GTX, with which it was often confused.   Paying $50,000 to Warner Brothers to use the name and likeness of their Road Runner cartoon character and using the Chrysler B platform as a base, Plymouth set out to build a back-to-basics muscle car. Everything essential to performance and handling was beefed-up and improved; everything nonessential was left out.   The earliest of the 1968 models were available only as 2-door pillared coupes, but later in the model year a 2-door "hardtop" model was offered. For an extra $714, Plymouth would install a 426 CID Hemi rated at 425bhp and 490lbft of torque. Combined with low weight, the 6-passenger Road Runner could run the 1/4 mile in 13.5 seconds at 105 mph. It would prove to be one of the best engines of the muscle car era, and the Road Runner one of the best platforms to utilize it.     VIN RM21J8A117164   This J Code Hemi car had a full rotisserie restoration from 1998 to 2001 by Clive Bailey out of British Columbia, Canada. It was then was purchased by Paul Clancy in 2001 and came to the USA.  We have many of the receipts and photographs of the restoration.   This car is possibly the first 1968 Hemi to be shipped to Canada with a build date of September 4th, 1967.  It is 1 of only 41 1968 Hemi Plymouths to be shipped to Canada.  Only 20 1968 Hemi Road Runner Coupes, out of 26 total Hemi Road Runners, were shipped to Canada.     Mechanics   1968 426ci Hemi Engine - Non Numbers Matching, but is Date Correct   Casting Date 1/15/1968   1968 Matched Set Hemi Carbs   Period Correct Cast Iron Headers   Mopar Electronic Ignition   727 Automatic Transmission   Trans Cooler Up Front   Correct Style 26” Radiator   742 Case Sure Grip Rear End   Dual Exhaust   Gas Tank Looks Great   Springs are in Good Shape   Newer Shocks   Manual Brakes   Manual Steering   4 Wheel Drum Brakes   Road Runner Horn     Body   Beautiful Red Paint Job   Doors Fit and Operate Great   Door Lips and Jambs are Clean and Solid   New Quarters from a 1968 Plymouth B Body   Undercarriage is Painted Body Color   Steel Wheels are Painted Body Color   235/60/15 Front, 275/60/15 Rear   Coupe Body Style   Chrome is Gorgeous   Solid Trunk with Nice Mat   Beautiful Paint Job in Trunk   Beautiful Glass   Frame is in Awesome Shape, Very Clean Inside   Torque Boxes   Floorboards Appear to be Original and Untouched   Pinch Welds are Beautiful   Very Solid and Extremely Clean Undercarriage   Wheel Wells are Clean and Solid     Interior New Interior in 2002   Black and Silver Upholstery   Bench Seat   Interior Paint is Beautiful   Stainless Trim Inside is in Great Shape   Nice Arm Rests and Handles   Beautiful Steering Wheel   Aftermarket Gauges Under Dash   Column Shift   Aftermarket Tach Mounted on Dash   Dash Pad is in Great Shape   Carpet Looks Awesome   Headliner Fits Tight Across   Working Dome Light   Aftermarket Radio   Seatbelts Front and Back   Speakers Mounted in Package Tray   Wipers Work       Fender Tag Decoding From the Bottom to the Top   Row 1: RM21 = Road Runner Coupe 73 = 426 Hemi 2-4BBL 5 = Torqueflite Automatic 727 45 = F70x15” Redline Tires 904 = September 4, 1967 Production Date A05453 = Shipping Order Number   Row 2: 2: 5 = Drip Rail Mouldings A: 4 = 3.23:1 gear ratio X: 8 = Sure Grip traction   TRM: D4S = Deluxe Bench Vinyl Silver & Black Seat   PNT: PP1 = Bright Red   U: B = Black Upper Door Frames   Row 3:  A: 1 = 26" Radiator X: 1 = 521 = Glass Tinted all Windows   Row 4:  u: 1 = 691 = Sold Car w: 6 = 686 = Built for Canada Order         Don’t Miss Out!
