1974 Plymouth Road Runner Additional Info:

A Rare (1 of 280) Matching Numbers 1974 Roadrunner That’s Never Been Out of The Family.

We Owned Five Of These 74’s, And This The Last Green Machine I’m Selling (I’m keeping one because it has only 1,200 original miles)…

Please don’t email me and ask me, “What I’m looking for, or what’s the reserve?” I have a career and I can’t respond to every email. Just email me an offer…

Please view a short video at https://youtu.be/qkrmGP1RL3M

It Has Factory A/C That’s Been Converted For Compliance And Blows Ice Cold As Well As The Hurst Pistol Grip Package (4-Speed Manual Transmission).

The 400ci V8 Is In Near PERFECT CONDITION.

The Vehicle Has Always Been Garage Kept.

I'm often peppered with questions about spotting an original versus a fake. First, understand what the letters and numbers mean when considering a Mopar piece of history i.e. VIN and Tag. All 1970's era Road Runners have a VIN beginning with RM like this one... The second two numbers "21" signify that it's a 2-Door Coupe. The fifth, P, reveals the engine, and the following number, 4, is the year. This Road Runner is an RM21P4 (VIN and Fender Tag).

She's a turnkey muscle car from day one that's ready rumble and turn heads from day one.

When I Acquired the Vehicle, It Had 19,000 Original Miles. Today, The Chassis Has A Shade Under 32,000 Original Miles, And Less Than 5,000 Since The Entire Engine Was Broken Down Piece By Piece.

Many so-called experts have emailed me with claims that big block 400 or 440's with the Hurst Pistol Grip 4-Speed Manual Transmission were not produced in 73 or 74. They’re wrong!

This can be confirmed in a Hemmings article titled One Rare Bird. Also, my grandfather was in charge of production for the Roadrunner.

Satellite’s that are restored to be Roadrunner tribute cars with more miles’ list for $25-42,000, and they sell for around $31,000. I’m not unreasonable, but I want a fair selling price that’s in line with the worth of this vehicle. In and out, this car is a near #1 Concours level classic. The condition of this vehicle is between a #2 Excellent and #1 Concours. Others in this condition have sold at auction between $37,000.00 for a #2 in Excellent Condition and a #1 Concours for $52,000.00 (it's closer to a #1 than a #2).The value receives an additional 15% bump for being a 4 Speed.

Every Nut And Bolt Is Stainless Steel. All The Seals, Gaskets, Hoses, Plugs, and Wire Harnesses Were Replaced.

The Title Is Free And Clear.

The VIN and Fender Tag In Place And Never Removed Or Tampered With (I did not remove it when it was painted because I got scammed a long time ago on another vehicle, so I never touch the VIN or Fender Tag even if resto or paint is required.)

Original Wheels, Radiator, and CarbCan Be Included For An Additional Fee. I Added Aluminum Radiator, Electric Fan and Shroud Kit(not pictured), and Edelbrock Carb 1406.

The Modern Stereo and Bluetooth and Smart Phone Hookup Can Be Removed For The Pure Investor. It Retains The Factory Radio and It Is Operational As Well As All The Gauges, Signals, and Wipers.

The oil pressure stays steadily around 80, and the temp pins at 180 degrees even when the A/C is on high under the Florida summer heat. If you have a Mopar and can't figure out the overheating issue then consider these easy fixes - install a lower radiator hose with a coil, and make sure the clutch fan is functioning properly. I installed Aluminum radiator and Electric Fan and Shroud Kit, but the original radiator can be included with your purchase. I installed an Edelbrock 1406, but the original carb can be included. The original wheels can be included for an additional $1,000.

The Road Runner is recognized as one of the most desirable muscle car investments available to the collector in the marketplace today. While most of the classic car market is suffering the Mopar family of cars (Dodge and Plymouth) such as the Charger, Demon, Daytona, Coronet, Superbird, Challenger, Cuda, Duster, Fury, and Road Runner continue to make huge gains in value. The average annual appreciation over the past three years has been 15%. By 2020, it's estimated that their value will have more than doubled, and by 2027 returns are expected to be in the range of 500%.

Since January of 2016 this vehicle has appreciated a shade over 14% making this investment one of the best performing and conservative investment opportunities available in any investment marketplace. The average return for Americans that invest in the stock market is 7.14%. In order for me to make all the money back I've poured into this vehicle I'd have to hold it for a minimum of 5 years. Therefore, the person that purchases this vehicle will make a very nice return over the next 3-5years. Experts tell me that in 5 years this vehicle will receive a minimum valuation of $59-68,000.00 plus an additional 15% for the 4-speed manual transmission.

The point is you're not just buying something that's sure to be pure enjoyment to drive, a ton of fun, and filled with nostalgic memories of times past... You're making an investment that when cared for properly will pay a big return in the years to come.

I might consider a trade plus cash package deal, but no project cars. I’m a doctor not a mechanic.
