440CI V8, BUCKETS W/ CENTER CONSOLE, SUBLIME GREEN, RALLYE DASH W/ TACH

The '70s were a wacky, wonderful time for high-performance cars, and nobody did high-impact muscle better than Chrysler. So if it's attention you're craving, check out this 1971 Plymouth Road Runner, complete with Sublime paint, a Go-Wing, and a ton of horsepower inside.

The "fuselage" styling has aged pretty well, still looking futuristic and rounded with aggressively flared fenders. Of course, painting anything Sublime green is simply asking for attention, but it's fortunate that this car looks as good as it does if all those folks are going to be staring at it. As a result, the flanks are smooth, the doors fit well, and there are no major issues in the usual spots. The paint looks great rendered in modern materials that give it a shine that was impossible 40 years ago, and a professional buff should make it bright enough burn retinas. The big block hood is dressed up with cool '440' inserts and a black strobe stripe kit that's a big part of the look, plus that satin black wing out back that ties it all together. Both the front and rear bumpers seem to echo each other in their shape, and with bright chrome and nicely polished stainless trim, the car has a great look.

Inside, the interior got a mild makeover that's both period-perfect and ready to cater to serious drivers. Buckets and a console make it a desirable car, and the horizontal pleats work well with the '70s theme. Heck, the car's logo is a cartoon bird, a bit of fun with the disco era is definitely welcome! An original wheel frames factory gauges, and the dash itself, along with the console, has been dressed up with some woodgrained appliques that are at least moderately convincing. This one also packs power steering and brakes, as well as an AM/FM head unit in the dash, so cruising is a genuine pleasure. The back seat with its highly sculpted seating surfaces looks like the best seat in the house and there's a taut headliner overhead to complete the OEM look. Revised styling also included a large, usable trunk, which carries a full-sized spare and jack assembly, plus a correct mat that might very well be original.

The 440 cubic inch engine is beautifully detailed, and somehow that contrast between Sublime green paint and the Hemi Orange engine always looks incredible. This was originally an N-code high-performance 383 car, but the 440 fits just as well and looks right. They paid attention to the details when it went together, including a twin-snorkel air cleaner with reproduction decals, and it shows only modest signs of use. The 727 TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic is bulletproof and in the Road Runner, offers quick reflexes and relaxed cruising, so you can drive it every day without a penalty. It's not detailed for show, but the underside is quite clean and there's a recent exhaust system that sounds strong without being too loud. Staggered Rallye wheels wear 215/70/14 front and wide 255/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials, which fill those wheel wells perfectly.

Unique, fast, and fun, with just the right '70s outrageousness, this Road Runner delivers in a big way. Call today!
