Every time a muscle car enthusiast stumbles upon some rare and highly appealing specimen of a vintage Detroit muscle, he should do the exact same thing like the guy who recorded the following video that you are going to see in just a few moments. It is some sort of a `code of honor` between us, the muscle car aficionados, that is giving us a chance to see and admire some of the cars that we like so much, from any corner of the world.
And thanks to the author of this video clip, today we are going to show you one great and rare example of the legendary 1969 Plymouth Road Runner, a car that you all know well that cannot be seen very often. And watching it in real life, and having a chance to listen to that unique Mopar engine sound, is like playing one of your favorite tunes, at will.
This legendary Mopar muscle was built on the B-body platform, it is pretty much lightweight, with great performance abilities, and powerful and fast (to earn the name of Road Runner properly), thanks to the Mopar`s 383 cubic inch motor, treated to the heads, camshafts, manifolds from the 440 Magnum, that is giving a total output to a 335 HP and 425 pound feet of torque.
The official report says that before they officially launched the car to the market, Plymouth had to pay $50 000 to the Hollywood studio Warner Bros., for the rights to use the name of Road Runner. Today, the Plymouth Road Runner is one of the most desired muscle cars amongst the vintage car collectors, and that is why it is really a rare opportunity and pleasure, to see it chilling out like this.
