History of the Plymouth Road Runner
The Plymouth Road Runner first appeared on the scene in 1968. By this time, the original muscle car was moving away from the former trends of cheap and fast and moving towards more features and larger price tags. Despite its high power, the it was budget-friendly and boasted a powerful engine.The Road Runner was competitive on the market as a lower priced, basic trim model of the Plymouth GTX. The Road Runner was such an instant hit, it wasnt long before Dodge answered with the Super Bee less than a model year after the Road Runners introduction.
As the name might make you think, Plymouth paid a pretty price to Warner Bros. to use the Road Runner name and likeness from their popular cartoon featuring Wile E. Coyote - they even took inspiration from the cartoon to develop the sound for the cars horn. Plymouth expected to sell about 20,000 units of the <a href=https://www.smokymountaintraders.com/cars-for-sale/search/1968/Plymouth/Road+Runner1968>Road Runner Model; actual sales numbered around 45,000. This placed the Road Runner third in sales among muscle cars with only the Pontiac GTO and Chevys SS-396 Chevelle outselling it.
