1971 Plymouth Road Runner HistoryThe Plymouth Road Runner was a performance car built by the Plymouth division of the Chrysler Corporation in the United States between 1968 and 1980. In 1968 the first muscle cars were in the opinion of many moving away from their roots as relatively cheap fast cars as they gained options. Although Plymouth already had a performance car in the GTX designers decided to go back to the drawing board and reincarnate the original muscle car concept.In 1971 the coupe bodywork was completely changed to a more rounded "fuselage" design in keeping with thencurrent Chrysler styling trends including a steeply raked windshield hidden cowl and deeply inset grille and headlights. In a departure from previous thinking the BBody twodoor bodies shared little if any sheet metal glass or trim with the fourdoor bodies. The convertible was canceled. 1971 was a highwater year for ride and handling for the Road Runner.VIN RM23H1G139713Recent ground up restoration This is a very rare 1971 Road Runner only 2100 were made with a factory manual shift.
