1969 Plymouth Road Runner A12 2-door Hardtop Additional Info:

Selling our extremely rare authentic fully restored A12 M-code 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner hardtop powered by a big block 440ci 6-barrel engine and a Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission. Numbers matching fender tag and dash plate with correct paintcode R4 (Performance Red) paint job and correct black vinyl interior with bucket seats and center console option. Correct monster Dana 60 rear end with correct high performance 4.10 gears, correct fiberglass lift-off hood, correct Edelbrock intake, correct hood scoop 6-pack air breather assembly, and comes with correct black 15x7 steel rims with correct redline bias-ply tires, comes with upgraded front disc brakes, correct jack, correct spare, and owners manual. Car has just over 42,000 miles and is in excellent condition and runs and drives just like it did when it rolled off the showroom floor. The A12 package was a special racing package available to the public for just a brief 6-month period (mid year option) in 1969 and almost all of them ended up on Nascar teams or pro drag strip team garages and very few have survived due to the hard life many of them endured and the limited production numbers. There were only 375 of these cars made like this (A12 hardtop/auto transmission) and they are regarded as being the fastest 1/4 mile drag production car of the musclecar era's horsepower wars of the late 60's and early 70's. The 426 Hemi gets all the glory for having just slightly more horsepower (10-25hp depending on the source) but they were usually virtually identical in horsepower and torque whenever dyno tested but the Hemi engine setups were a fair amount heavier and at the 1/4-mile track a properly tuned 440/6-pack car would usually run faster. The 426 Hemi would go on to dominate the era at Nascar tracks with Richard Petty behind the wheel but the 440/6-pack would rule the drag strips with drivers like Ronnie Sox behind the wheel, so regardles of which engine setup you consider "the fastest" its clear that it was a B-body Mopar. Professionally restored examples of this car have sold for as much as $250,000 and it is considered one of the most sought after vehicles of the era as far as investment potential and collectibility. Its a terrific car and we hate selling it but we have a couple other restoration projects underway and we would like to use the funds from selling this Roadrunner towards wrapping up the rest of our classic restoration projects. We really loved and enjoyed owning this hot-rod Mopar and we are sure you will too, please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions, happy bidding!
