Pro Touring 1969 Plymouth Road Runner – The “Big Hemi”
There is nothing better than the big-block Hemi Mopar muscle car, and today we have the 1969 Plymouth Hemi Road Runner. This Mopar project started as a regular 383 Road Runner and has been converted into the 528 cubic-inch Pro Touring monster so called the “Big Hemi Green Runner”. The team behind this project is the Jason Bair Customs which have spent thousands of hours making this Hemi Road Runner what he is today.
This Pro Touring 1969 Plymouth Hemi Road Runner has been completely restored. The interior has been left close to the original, with some small changes like the sport steering wheel, piston grip shifter and new black leather seats. But the main changes are made on the suspension and of course the engine.
Under the hood there is Chrysler’s 528 cubic-inch, Stroker Hemi, Aluminum headed big-block V8 engine. This engine is custom built by Muscle Motors Racing and makes 657 horsepower and 652 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is attached by a Keisler five-speed manual overdrive transmission system which spins the rear wheels via Dana 60 rear axle.

For safety there is Wilwood Brake System featuring four rotors with six-piston calipers. The wheels are provided by American Racing Torque Thrust, 22-inch rear, and 20-inch up front all equipped with low profile Nitto NT 555 Performance Tires. With this power, suspension and equipment this beast can fly over 150 mph.
