1969 Plymouth Road Runner
The Plymouth Road Runner was a performance car built by the Plymouth division of the Chrysler Corporation in the United States between 1968 and 1980. In 1968, the first muscle cars were moving away from their roots as relatively cheap, fast cars as they gained options. Although Plymouth already had a performance car in the GTX, designers decided to go back to the drawing board and reincarnate the original muscle car concept. Plymouth wanted a car able to run 14-second times in the quarter mile and sell for less than US$3000. Both goals were met, and the low-cost muscle car hit the street.
The 1969 model made some slight changes such as tail lights and grille, side marker lights, optional bucket seats, and new Road Runner decals. All were 383 engine cars, except for ten 426ci Hemi convertible cars. An Air Grabber option (N96 code) was introduced this year. The Plymouth Road Runner was named Motor Trend "Car of the Year" for 1969.
This car was previously owned by a retired Chrysler employee. He spent 31 years at Chrysler building "show cars". This car was frame on restored, assembled and painted by the same team that handled Chryslers show cars. This is a one of a Road Runner that does not come along very often. It’s ready to be driven anywhere, and fast!

If you are interested in this car, or any of our other 50+ cars, don’t wait for the auction to end on eBay. You may loose out if you wait! Our shop is open to the public, and when a walk in customer puts a deposit on a car we reserve the right to close the eBay listing before the auction ends. If you think this car is “The One”, we can end the auction by adding a “But It Now” to the auction for the reserve price. If an auction ends and the bids do not meet the reserve price, we will continue to relist it until it sells. Do not hesitate to contact Tom 7 days a week!
We take over 100 photographs of the car, as well as a high definition video, so you know exactly what to expect. We encourage you to hire an independent inspector to check out the car, prior to purchase or bidding.
