Original Paint: 1969 Road Runner

1969 Road Runner

From David F. – Wow, a 1969 Plymouth Road Runner that’s been sitting for 31 years! It supposedly has original paint and is numbers matching. This sounds like a great find, depending on how much rust is underneath. It looks great at 50 feet. It is an automatic, column shift and it doesn’t run though. They want $12,000 for it here on craigslist. You can buy a running example for not much more, but no doubt it won’t be original and will likely have at least some rust. This could be a great deal, if it’s not too badly corroded and the engine is still rebuildable. What do you think?

    Holy cow! I know musclew cars are hot but 12K for a non runner is way out of line in my estimation.

  2. jeff6599

    I do not see the little RoadRunner cartoon symbol anywhere nor the black hood insert they all had. Is it a real RR?

  3. JW

    Nice Mopar but I would have to inspect it in person to pay that much for a non runner.

    Looks like rust in rocker panel and rear quarter behind wheel. Dent in bottom of quarter panel that shallows out all the way up to deck lid. Be nice to see more pictures of this “solid” non running car. Would love to see under car especially by dented area of quarter panel. Wheres the badging also?

    Here is one I had that looks a lot like the one listed here. I sold mine in 07′ for $13000.00.

      Very nice, JW. That is a car that is worth 13k

  6. JW454

    Another shot.

      Nice looking ride! What did you replace it with?

  8. Ed P

    To much rust and not enough pictures. There is nothing special about this RR. It has the base 383/335hp engine, auto tranny and plain wheels. Plus dents and rust.

    Mopar were just like Chevys, in that you could order them to you taste. If you look on the doors, you will see it says “Road Runner”, you didn’t need stripes, or any thing else. This is an early 69′. Baffles me that so little of the people on this site know nothing about these things, they just run their mouths. If you ban me for that, so be it. I’m a MOPAR man to the bone. The wheels were not offered on the RR either. Either road wheels or poverty caps.

      As a car guy, I am here for the education. Not to mention the sweet stuff that is new to me! Not sure who is running the mouth off. I had a Hippie van in the 70’s. hung with some motorheads back then. Now have a 72 Stingray for 12 years and enjoy the info from the past. Interesting views for me. Keep them coming!

      In todays era of option ‘packages’ rather than just options, people only think that they can add things. They forget that in the past it was just as easy to delete things as it was to add them.

    I am not a Mopar expert, but I DID grow up in the country. About the only way to put a dent like that underneath is to take it stump-jumping. Pass…

    • Mel Lindsay

      Thats kinda what I was thinking also Grant. Stump humpin in a muscle car? Too many beer curls and not enough brain cells you ask me…

  11. blindmarc

    Sorry for my outburst. Had a bad day yesterday.

  12. Mel Lindsay

    Its all good brother. We’re all car guys (and gals) here. I profess that I’m more into Fords than Mopars but know enough to get by. I lean on my Mopar brothers to help me when I don’t.

  13. Blindmarc

    It’s still on Craigslist.
