1968 Plymouth RoadRunnerHistoryThe Plymouth RoadRunner was a performance car built by the Plymouth division of the ChryslerCorporation in the United States between 1968 and 1980. In 1968 the firstmuscle cars were moving away from their roots as relatively cheap fast cars asthey gained options. Although Plymouth already had a performance car in theGTX designers decided to go back to the drawing board and reincarnate theoriginal muscle car concept. Plymouth wanted a car able to run 14second timesin the quarter mile and sell for less than $3000. Both goals were met and thelowcost muscle car hit the street.Paying $50000 toWarner Brothers to use the name and likeness of their Road Runner cartooncharacter as well as a "beep beep" horn which Plymouth paid$10000 to develop and using the Chrysler B platform as a base Plymouth setout to build a backtobasics muscle car. Everything essential to performanceand handling was beefedup and improved; everything nonessential was left out.
