LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1971 Plymouth Road Runner
The year 1971 brought significant change to the American muscle car, with a number of model redesigns appearing. One was the release of the 2-door G-series Chrysler B-bodies, including the Charger/Super Bee and GTX/Road Runner muscle cars. At the time, few foresaw how close to the end of this era the Big Three manufacturers were. In fact, the 1971 model run was also the end of the high-performance equipment as originally optioned on this beautiful 340ci Road Runner.
This body was called the ‘fuselage’ style and featured much smoother, more dramatic edges than previous renderings of the classic Plymouth. This was the direct result of ongoing aerodynamic testing that Chrysler had been involved in, and it proved apt on the NASCAR circuit, where this design took Richard Petty to 21 event crowns and the first-ever Winston Cup title that season.
This beautiful Roadrunner is finished in its factory “B2” Glacial Blue exterior complemented very nicely with the rare white interior. Powered by a numbers matching 340 engine backed by the number matching 4 speed pistol grip transmission. This Mopar is well equipped with many options some of which include, power brakes, power steering, rally dash with factory tachometer, performance hood treatment, white transverse stripes, AM Radio with cassette, rally wheels with polyglass tires, optional exhaust tips, hood pins and of course the prerequisite “Beep Beep” horn.
This collectible Roadrunner has benefited from a very nice rotisserie restoration with few miles since completion. It comes documented with a Broadcast sheet, pictures of the prior to restoration as well as picture during the process. A great example of Mopar muscle that would make a great addition to anyone’s collection.
