$3,000 Road Runner!

1968 Plymouth Road Runner

Here’s what three grand will get you these days. Not much! This rust bucket is claimed to have once been a big-block/4-speed equipped Road Runner though and that’s a very good thing. It’s fun to dream that this may have once been fitted with a 440 or even a Hemi, but the VIN tells us that it left the factory with a 383. Not like that’s a bad thing though. All Road Runners were potent street racers and restored ones bring a nice penny today. This one is obviously going to need a complete restoration and lots of straightening, but I can spot an engine in there and the seller mentions a clear title. It’s located in Corbin, Kentucky and is listed for sale here on craigslist. Do you think it can still be saved?

    not sure I’d take it if he’d give it to me and deliver it…and I like 68/69 Runners

    I agree with dbigb1 and Ed P. Sure it could be saved. I really believe with enough money you could start with a bare block and wind up with a numbers matching example…

    Some things are destined for greatness & others not. This here is the later of the two. Maybe webuyjunkcars.com would be interested in it…. and this coming from a 69 Charger owner of 20 years.

    I’ve junked better cars than that!

    I bought a new one in the summer of ’68. Total cost on the road was $3175.00. Was a hell of a car. Still surprised that I’m still alive.
