A 1974 Plymouth Road Runner is aa true rarity to see out these days, but this one is desirable for far more than just uniqueness. It is a highly restored example that also gets extra power out it's numbers-matching 440 V8. So if you're looking for a stunning Mopar that's a true muscle car, dig deep into this coupe.
1974 would be the last year for the legendary second-generation Road Runners. They never again felt quite so sleek or bold after this one. So we understand exactly why someone would take the time, effort, and money into making sure this represented the best of the legendary generation. The factory-correct Bright Red has a radiant style that has the unmistakable look of a proper investment. Plus, the white stripe package really highlights some of the best features. It draws attention to the bulge in the hood with twin scoops. It runs the length of the coupe before wrapping around the top and showcasing an almost pillarless hardtop profile. The full package has been restored back to a time capsule-like status. In fact, only keen eyes will notice that the wheels are not Mopar road wheels but actually more modern 17-inch alloys. It's a subtle signal that's there's a little extra muscle in this Mopar.
The detailed work continues inside. There was a solid investment here to turn back the clock to 1974. You see it everywhere from the button-top high-back bucket seats, to wood-like accenting the full interior. The upholstery, door panels, and headliner have the instant look of premium finished in white. In fact, this was even built with great options like air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And high traffic areas like the carpeting and steering wheel are done in black to make sure it's always easy to take this classic out for a drive on a whim. And that's exactly with this coupe was made to do. Mopars were some of the best at focusing on the driver with a wraparound center console and a great dash layout. So you have a classic car that feels like it was built around you.
There's nothing better than lifting the hood and seeing the engine bay all filled with an ultra-tidy presentation of Mopar big block muscle. The restoration paid close attention to making sure the engine bay has a terrifically stock look. After all, this is a numbers-matching 440 cubic-inch V8, and so it deserves to be show-ready. That includes the correct blue on the block, factory decals, and a big air grabber announcing that this one was optioned with the best powerhouse. But if you dig a little deeper, you'll see they made the right subtle improvement over stock. The V8 inhales deeper thanks to a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. And there's even a Champion aluminum radiator to help keep it all running cool. It's the kind of quality package that fires up eagerly, runs smoothly, and makes a muscular tone out of the dual exhaust. You also have the numbers-matching A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission for stout and smooth driving. Plus, the undercarriage photos show newer components and a desirable rear sway bar. And it's an all-around good driver thanks to power steering, power brakes, front discs, and the grip of modern sport tires afforded by the wheel upgrade.
This is the last of the best Road Runners, and it has been restored to truly uphold the Mopar muscle legend. So don't let this big block classic get away. Call today!!!
