Find 1973 Plymouth Road Runners for Sale on Oodle Marketplace

I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1973 Plymouth Road Runner. It's powered by the original 400 V8, backed by a four-speed manual trans. All that power is being sent back to an 8 3/4 Rear with 3.91 gears. The paint is slick, the interior is looking great...this is on nice looking car all the way around. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

Genre: Blues
Length:
Instruments: Guitar, Bass, Kit, Organ, EP
Tempo: 90

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to electric piano. 011

    This is one bad 1973 Road Runner clone done better than the factory.

    Low stance, 340 engine, 727 tranny, and the 8 3/4 sure grip posi with a 3.91 rear end. It also has a mandrel 3" exhaust that is pretty intimidating.

    Only 200 miles or so on new drive train per previous owner.

    This car starts the first time and sounds really mean through the 3" mandrel bent exhaust.

    Engine:
    Has the legendary Mopar 340 .040 over engine that is so desirable, "U" (known for being on the 340 six pack engines) heads which are the "X" type with the larger valves and machine shop invoice for the work done. Engine has a windage tray and is 10:1 compression. Cam is the Mopar Performance purple cam grind 284/484 purple cam, very lopey idle. Has the Performer rpm intake, Holley 650 double pumper carb, headers, 3 inch mandrel bent exhaust all the way back and exits through chrome tips, loud and aggressive exhaust at wide open throttle. Has a new GER 727 trans with shift kit, traction bars, new 3.91 posi 8 3/4 rear, msd 5 ignition with MSD coil, and a new radiator. New master Cylinder and Brake Booster.


    Exterior:
    Bright nice paint, not perfect but looks good but you have to look close, paint is couple of years old. New meaty tires that are stuffed in the fender well for that hot rod look with smaller tires up front mounted on nice chrome star rims. Car has a new windshield, and has power front disc brakes and power steering.


    Interior Upgrades:
    Interior has buckets seats, console with slap stick shifter, and the rally instrument cluster. Car has a new a/c heater box, dash restored and steering column restored as well as the cluster.

    The 1973 Road Runner received completely new sheet metal and had more conventional squared-up front-end styling, which resembled the four-door models and actually increased sales by 40%.
