"2 Door Coupe 426 Hemi"

Typical of the late-1960s culture, Plymouth approached Warner Brothers studios and paid reportedly $50,000 for the use of its Road Runner television cartoon character. With Warner Brothers cartoon Road Runner bird decals and the characteristic “beep-beep” horn as part of its persona, the Plymouth Road Runner was instantly identifiable and immediately loved. The cheeky cartoon character was known for its speed so it was not a stretch that the Plymouth Road Runner would be fast. A range of powerful V8 engines were offered in a two-door intermediate outfitted with a simple bench seat, rubber floor mats, drum brakes and a heavy-duty suspension. A 335 horsepower, 383 cubic inch V8 was the base engine in the Road Runner. There were two versions of the 440 cubic inch V8 as well, but for those who wanted the last word in powerplants, it was not an expensive jump to order the 425 horsepower, 426 cubic inch Chrysler “Hemi” V8 engine.

It is our pleasure to present this highly original, extremely well-documented 1968 Plymouth Road Runner 2-Door Coupe 426/425 HEMI. This car has been preserved with the highest attention to detail and dedication to preserve originality. This car was completed off the assembly line on Friday April 5, 1968 at Lynch Road, MI. It is finished in the original Electric Blue Metallic paint over a black vinyl interior. All surfaces remain in excellent condition, as if it was born yesterday.

The car is documented with all numbers matching parts and corresponding build sheets, including a copy of the original. It is not a numbers matching engine but does have a period correct 426ci 425hp HEMI V8 that was bored and stroked at 4.310 x 3.75 to 437ci. The engine has been completely gone through and retuned with the top-class parts (inquire for details). From the factory, this Road Runner features a 4-speed manual transmission, heater with front defroster. An aftermarket CD deck, steering column tachometer, and Hurst shifter. This car has been completely restored and remains an amazing iconic Mopar. Examples like this quality have been going for over $100K at auctions.
