If you’re a muscle car enthusiast seeking a true classic, the 1970 Plymouth Road Runner 440+6, currently listed on BringATrailer.com, commands attention. This V-code hardtop coupe, steeped in a rich legacy, underwent a meticulous transformation, culminating in a breathtaking finished product.
Robed initially in red, this Road Runner underwent a striking metamorphosis, transitioning to a commanding black exterior complemented by silver and black vinyl upholstery. The seller acquired it in 2018 as an unfinished project and dedicated meticulous efforts to its completion.
Under the hood resides a powerhouse—a replacement big block 7.2-liter (440 cubic-inch) 6-BBL V8 boasting a ‘Six Pack’ carburetion with three two-barrel carburetors. Paired with a three-speed automatic transmission, this beast recently underwent an overhaul, breathing new life into its performance.
The exterior exudes boldness, featuring an Air Grabber induction system, black hood striping, and 440+6 graphics, paying homage to its heritage. The black vinyl roof, hood pins, and 15-inch steel wheels with Plymouth Division hubcaps evoke nostalgia, capturing the essence of its era.
Stepping inside reveals retrimmed bench seats and door panels adorned in black vinyl with silver accents, reflecting the classic aesthetics of the time. The dashboard boasts a 150-mph speedometer, auxiliary gauges, and an aftermarket tachometer, while an iconic Road Runner “Beep! Beep!” horn button adds a touch of whimsy.
Despite its journey to completion, the Road Runner isn’t without its character—hints of its history persist. Paint chips narrate tales of past adventures, and while the induction system’s hood flap remains raised sans a vacuum solenoid, it adds an air of authenticity to this meticulously restored vehicle.
Listed on BringATrailer.com, this automotive gem awaits its next owner. With bidding culminating on November 27 at 2:03 P.M. EDT, the opportunity to claim this iconic 1970 Plymouth Road Runner 440+6—a true embodiment of American muscle—is not to be missed.
