Classic Car Overview

Beep Beep! On the lot now is a beautiful 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner, and Coyote Classics is more than happy to offer it to you for your consideration. This Roadrunner really does move, which shouldnt be too much of a surprise given its name. In 1968, Plymouth thought that the muscle car market was moving away from its roots of offering relatively cheap, fast cars as the rest of the market gained features and increased in price. In response, Plymouth created a car that was intended as a back-to-basics muscle car, with virtually no options and pure muscle. Plymouth paid $50,000 to Warner Bros. to use name and cartoon decals from their Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner cartoons (as well as a beep, beep horn, which Plymouth paid $10,000 to develop). Basing the Roadrunner on its upscale GTX but without the comforts or options, Plymouth thought that theyd sell around 20,000 units on introduction. In actuality, they ended up selling more than double that number. By 1969, the Roadrunner was the second-best selling muscle car on the market after the Chevrolet SS396. Named Motortrends Car of the Year, the 1969 Roadrunner kept the same basic look as the 68, but with slight changes to the taillights and grille, side marker lights, optional bucket seats, and with new Roadrunner decals. This 69 comes fitted with the standard Roadrunner 383 C.I. V8 paired to a 4-barrel carburetor, giving this Roadrunner the ability to run down the road just fine. Torque from the 383 gets to the rear axle through a column-shifted 3-speed automatic, shifting quick and seamlessly. The exterior black vinyl top, black stripes and beige paint really work well together over a laser-straight body. That color scheme extends to the interior, where the white and gold vinyl bench seats really stand out and are very comfortable. Options fitted to this Plymouth include a Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo system, Pioneer speakers, power steering, a functional Roadrunner beep-beep horn, and a mean-sounding dual exhaust system. The car rides on some factory-spec Roadrunner steel wheels on top of some Performer Radial GT RWL tires for that classic muscle car look. This Roadrunner is just itching for the chance to burn rubber again, and we think youd look pretty good outrunning Wile E. Coyote behind the wheel.
