1970 Plymouth Road Runner

The Road Runner was introduced in 1968, along with the Dodge Coronet Super Bee, as a cheap muscle car--performance without the high cost. Available with a 383, 426 Hemi, or 440, luxuries in the Road Runner were kept to a minimum. The formula proved to be a success, as the Road Runner was one of the best selling muscle cars of the sixties and seventies. This '70 features the super-cool dust-trail-into-the-sidescoop option over "Limelight" green paint.

  1. I am the same age as this car. I do believe this is a very well-respected muscle car, compared to the Chevy Chevelle & Ford Fairlane/Torino. As far as this being a car that sold well I don't know, but growing up I had seen more Chevys (1968-72) than the Plymouths. As far as Ford goes starting in 1972 with the restyle of Torino ,I remember seeing a lot of those cars on the street as well.
