1968 Plymouth Road RunnerHistoryThe 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 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. Plymouth wanted a car able to run 14second times in the quarter mile and sell for less than $3000. Both goals were met and the lowcost muscle car hit the street. Paying $50000 toWarner Brothersto use the name and likeness of theirRoad Runnercartoon character as well as a "beep beep" horn which Plymouth paid $10000 to develop and using theChrysler B platformas a base Plymouth set out to build a backtobasics muscle car. Everything essential to performance and handling was beefedup and improved; everything nonessential was left out.VIN RM23H8G250021This beautiful two door hardtopspent its entire life in California.
