1971 Plymouth Road Runner -- Additional Info:

Aficionados of vintage Plymouths: prepare to be blown away! This 1971 Plymouth Road Runner has received a meticulous, uncompromising restoration that's left it in stellar condition - as evidenced by its Best of Show finish and 1st Place in its division at the 2017 Mopar Mini Nationals. It's a numbers-matching attention magnet that not only still carries its original engine and transmission - both operating at the top of their game - but also comes complete with its original bill... of sale and factory build sheet, as well as build receipts and restoration photos, so you have some great documentation of this classic's journey through the decades. The color of this '71 is its factory original code EV2, Tor-Red, and what could be more fitting for a Plymouth of this era than this color? A lot of prepping and workmanship went into its application, so the shade is in great form, with that special fresh look usually reserved for cars that have just emerged from the paint shop. A sharp, contrasting flat black scoop sits on the orange hood and it's fully functional - ushering cold air to the engine waiting inside. Unlike many Road Runners from this era, the color-matching elastomeric bumpers on this specimen have been allowed to remain, upping the originality of its look. As you'd expect from a restoration of this caliber, all the finishing touches have been looked after - the white decals running over the rear roofline look razor sharp, clean rubber trim surrounds all the windows and the body lines are as precise as can be, allowing the doors, hood and decklid to open and shut as smoothly as when this Plymouth first hit the road. The two-tone orange and black seating on the Road Runners of yesteryear was a defining styling cue that's been carried into the present and looks great. High-backed bucket seats straddle a fresh, contrasting center console and beckon you to climb inside to assume the driver's position where, as you take hold of the stock steering wheel, you'll see a dash area that's also been thoroughly restored, sporting an assortment of crystal-clear factory gauges in its cluster, with a fresh, unspoiled dash pad running across the top. This classic Plymouth left the factory with air conditioning installed and the plumbing and compressor are both in place, and a little attention to the wiring will bring this feature back online. The trunk area in back is looking sharp, and it's nice and offers a lot of room - even with a full-size factory spare inside - and with nothing covering its wheelhouses and inner fenders, you can see further evidence of just how meticulous this restoration was. The engine bay sitting under the hood has a museum-level appearance that you don't often see, even in the most well-heeled of vintage cars. The original 383 cubic inch V8 sits inside with its block, valve covers and sharply badged air cleaner painted to match the surrounding walls and exterior. A 4-barrel carb sits on top, aided by the cold, dense air it's fed through the hood scoop and air grabber just above. The powerplant sounds great and pairs with an also original 3-speed automatic A727 Torqueflite transmission that's shifting with slip-free precision. Power brakes sit at all four corners, while power steering makes navigating this magnetic and rare Plymouth a breeze as it cruises on its set of 15" original Plymouth wheels, outfitted with BF Goodrich T/A tires. The sharp looking undercarriage below proves this classic hasn't veered into hostile territory since its restoration. If you're looking for an upper-echelon MoPar ride that's at the top of its game both in terms of looks and running condition, you have to check out this 1971 Plymouth Road Runner. Call today!
