Classic Car Overview
The 1974 Plymouth Road Runner was certainly the last of a dying breed. Changing vehicle regulations and increasing gas prices led to consumers demanding more efficient vehicles, and so the fuel-hungry Mopar muscle cars dwindled. However, the Road Runner did not go down without a fight! Before being replaced by the Fury and relegated to a Volare trim package, the Road Runner stayed both beautiful and powerful. This 1974 Road Runner has had some custom touches added since it left the factory, but it continues to capture the spirit of the original Road Runners thanks to a killer paint job, rumbling MOPAR V8 and plenty of options that make this car a blast to drive. When approaching this Plymouth, the first thing youll notice is the slick black paint job. As any car enthusiast may know, black paint is easy to put on but hard to make look smooth. One glance down the side of this car proves that any bodywork performed has been done to a high degree of quality, as the lack of imperfections is apparent. If there were any imperfections, they would have a hard time hiding from black paint! Most of the chrome trim, including the bumpers, has been blacked out to give this car a slightly custom and almost sinister appearance. Additionally, the black is accented by the bright yellow Road Runner stripes. The wheel beauty rings, drip rail trim, and windshield trim have been left in their original finish so as to provide some light to the dark expanse that is this car. The wheels are Mopar rally wheels with the early style (and desirable) center caps. Though now painted black, the fender tag shows that this car left the factory with option code G74 for Dual Chrome Racing Mirrors. This car was also originally optioned with the J54 Sport Hood. The interior is clean and simple, complete with more custom work to match the exterior including yellow and black seats with Road Runner logos in the headrests. The black is vinyl while the yellow is suede or some such similar material. Even the center console has a custom yellow insert! As a whole, the interior is clean and complete with lots of original parts. The A/C works as it should, and this was a factory bucket seat car. Everything including the original gauges functions properly! Under the hood, youll find a Chrysler 400 big block with headers, an aluminum radiator, and an Edelbrock carb sitting atop an Edelbrock Torker intake. Additionally, youll notice the original V-style A/C compressor which has been retrofitted to accept modern R-134A refrigerant. Though it was originally a 383 car, the 400 looks right at home and sounds mean! Additional under-hood upgrades include Mopar Performance valve covers, a Mopar Performance air cleaner, an MSD Blaster ignition coil, and aftermarket spark plug wire separators. This is a nice, high-quality mild custom that would make a fantastic weekend car or unique daily! It is a tidy and somewhat subtle custom that utilizes lots of original parts to maintain that classic feel. TITLE: CLEAN NC TITLE DOES IT WORK?
