AutoHunter Spotlight: 1969 Plymouth Road Runner Convertible

Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this restored 1969 Plymouth Road Runner convertible. Power comes from a 383cid V8 backed by a four-speed manual transmission. Features include air induction, power steering and disc brakes, Polygraphite front suspension bushings, electronic ignition, and more. Finished in Ivy Green Metallic with black power convertible top over a black vinyl interior, this Road Runner comes from the selling dealer with restoration documents, the original transmission case, and clear title.

In 2019, the body was refinished in the original color of “F8” Ivy Green Metallic. Features include an “N94” Coyote Duster air induction, black “V21” Performance Hood Paint, and driver-side rear-view mirror with manual remote. New parts include chrome bumpers, windshield and rear window, convertible top pad, front floors, trunk floor and extensions, and rear quarter panels. A walk-around video can be seen below.

A set of 14-inch Magnum 500 wheels is wrapped in new 225/70R14 BFGoodrich Silvertown redline radial tires.

This Road Runner was originally built with the “H2W” white bench seat interior with black components but now features a “H2X” black bench seat interior. Features include power steering, floor-mounted Hurst shifter, rebuilt heater box, AM radio, and custom shoulder-harness seat belts. New parts include front and rear body wiring harnesses, carpeting, floor sound-damping material, convertible top boot, and convertible well liner.

The instrument panel includes a 120-mph speedometer, 8,000-rpm tachometer, and gauges for the fuel level, coolant temperature, and alternator. An AutoMeter tachometer is mounted to the steering column. The odometer currently reads 12,649 miles, but the true mileage on this vehicle is unknown.

Power is provided by a rebuilt and reportedly original 335-horsepower 383, which was the standard engine for the Road Runner. It is backed by a rebuilt four-speed manual transmission with larger synchronizers. Engine bay features include an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Coyote Duster air cleaner housing with air induction plenum on the underside of the hood, electronic ignition, and new power steering pump, steering box, and wiring harness.

This Road Runner is equipped with an independent front suspension that has been upgraded with Polygraphite bushings, and a solid rear-drive axle. Braking is provided by power front discs and rear drums. A dual exhaust system exits at the rear.
