Here is a 1971 Plymouth Road Runner for sale. This is the first year of the handsomely redesigned Road Runner and for this first year of this body style performance was still impressive. This classic muscle car has the 383 engine and a slap stick transmission. The VIN is RM23N1E100977 showing that this is not a clone but a true Road Runner. There were only 14,218 made in 1971 compared with 45,000 in 1968, 82,109 in 1969 and around 41,000 in 1970. Performance for the 1971 models was still impressive, so this body style Road Runner 1971 is considered the most desirable year to own. This 1971 Plymouth has the 383 300 BHP 4 bbl engine and as you can hear from the videos it REALLY roars. This Road Runner will put a smile on your friends face the second the 383 fires up.
This Hi - C orange 1971 Plymouth Road Runner is originally from Arizona. The undercarriage is in beautiful shape. part of the reason this style Road Runner is so rare (besides the low production figures) is that this body style was quite prone to rust. Getting a car that spent most of its life in Arizona is definitely the way to go! There are photographs of the rust free frame in the close-up photo gallery. I put this car on a lift when I first got it in and I could hardly believe how great it looked from the bottom up.
When I took this car in it had been sitting for about 8 years. I had my mechanic rebuild the carburetor, we flushed the tank, replaced the fuel filter and it now starts right up and sounds like a roaring beast. I would still recommend restoring the gas tank and replacing the tires (or at least the rear driver's side as it loses air) but then you would have yourself a really kick-axx daily driver.
Check out the photographs of the trunk! This thing is as solid as you can find for under $20,000. The interior is original and in pretty good shape for never having been restored. The car has been painted once and there are some areas where the paint is chipping. But going down the road at 110 MPH the car looks great! Just kidding sort of, but even from 15 feet away this is a real eye catcher. Check out the close up photo gallery to see the blemishes in the paint in detail. The car could be touched up but except for one dent just behind the front bumper on the driver's side this is a super straight car. So a repaint could help you double your investment and you would be getting one step closer to having a show car. But as it is right now it's a great driver that can be enjoyed tremendously without much work or investment. High retail value on the car is $50,000 and average retail is over $30,000 (nada guides) so your investment in the car should easily keep up with any spending should you decide to take this classic 1971 Road Runner to another level.
I have this nice, solid example of a 1971 Plymouth Road Runner priced below low retail value so it won't last long! Call or email with any questions or interest. Thanks for checking out my listing!
