Runs But Rusty: 1969 Plymouth Road Runner

1969 Plymouth Road Runner 2

If the Road Runner we featured this morning is getting too pricey for you, then may I suggest this one instead? The engine is in the car and runs, but there are a few other problems. Namely rust. Personally, I would rather start with a rust-free car that had mechanical problems than the other way around. Still, the bidding on this rust bucket is a lot lower than that other car. This one is located in Georgetown, Kentucky and it’s listed here on eBay where bidding is currently around $3k.

The photos provided are nothing to get excited about, but you can see what you have to look forward to in this shot. There’s obviously a lot of corrosion and there’s likely more than what’s visible on the surface. The seller states that the floors and trunk do need replaced so plan on all that. Metal work can get expensive, but there is a big spread between this car and the seemingly more solid one we mentioned earlier. So, which one would you pick if you were in the market for a Road Runner?

    Years ago, this would have been a parts car for the one featured earlier, however, a quick check on Hemmings shows 64 Road Runners and 50 of them are over 30g’s, ( 10 are over 50g’s) so apparently, even a wasted car like this, is still worth fixing. Way too much work here for me, but it could be done. Guess a sub-14 second car for someone just out of high school is out of the question now, something this car was intended for when introduced.

    No question for me the other one. Still bid in the teens. This one will likely reach that number just in metalwork and replacement parts.

    Rust is a much bigger headache than mechanical issues. I would definitely take the other Road Runner over this one.

    Cars like these are good for the bargain buy and long term dream. If you’re short on cash and can’t afford the crazy prices of popular cars like these, but have wanted something that has a crazy demand, this is a way to pick up your dream car and spend the next 10 years fixing it(probably with the help of a professional bodyman).
