A high Impact color, sinister style, and the numbers-matching V8 make this 1971 Plymouth Road Runner one cool Mopar of distinction.
The bold and factory-correct Sassy Grass from the legendary High Impact color palette is the perfect attention-grabber to showcase all the great details on this coupe. The Road Runner was given its new fuselage styling in '71, which hid the front end behind a chrome bumper surround. The nose shields the headlights to make them look like a criminal trying to hide his face in a neon hoodie. So pulling up behind a lesser car at a stoplight definitely makes for a sight in their rear view mirrors. In fact, this bright coupe has a hint of a dark side with a well-coordinated contrasting black on the performance hood treatment and side strobe stripe that runs all the way over the top of the car. And this really does have great Mopar details, from the Rallye wheels to the Road Runner cartoon on the rear deck (and yes, the horn still goes “BEEP! BEEP!”)
The black accenting of the exterior gets you ready for the black interior. And what you'll also notice are pieces like the sporty gray striping on the seats and wood-like paneling on the dash. It gives this coupe an added feeling of distinction inside. This has true vintage style with the classic three-spoke steering wheel (w/Road Runner center cap), big round gauges, and even the AM radio is still cranking out the tunes.
But the boldest part of this coupe is under the hood. After all, you not only get bright Sassy Grass on the inner walls, but also there's a nice V8 looking bold in Mopar orange. The 340 cubic-inch motor is the numbers-matching powerplant, and it has a tidy look of originality, right down to the correct air topper. The V8 inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, which gives a sweet sound to the dual exhaust. Not only are those pipes newer, but also the undercarriage photos reveal more recent investments in fundamental areas. This is a solid driver, and features like power steering and the three-speed automatic transmission make it a great cruiser.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a very bold and striking coupe. So you know you want to get your hands on this Road Runner. Call today!!!
