The modern Mopar’s are awesome in every aspect, however, the classic Mopar’s are the most badass American muscle cars ever produced. The simple proof for that is this Hemi Orange 1971 Plymouth Roadrunner, which is a stunning piece of machinery and till now had only two owners. The current owner has had this Roadrunner since high school days and he had an awesome time such as drag and street racing.
This 1971 Plymouth Roadrunner is a California car, which means no rust underneath with all original panels on. luckily the owner pushed this car beyond its limits therefore he changed several engines, although this Plymouth originally came with a 383cu engine. However the owner wanted to do something different with his car, therefore now he turned into a street machine, ready to kick buts on the street.
Under the hood, it is equipped with stroked 400 which now has 467 cubic inches with Holley four-barrel carburetor on top and MSD ignition, and produces 650 horsepower. Behind the engine, there is Torque Flite 727 three-speed automatic transmission which is connected to 3.55 rear gears. The wheels are WELD 15-inch equipped with Mickey Thompson GT Street S/S slicks and Wilwood manual brakes.
Inside this 1971 Plymouth Roadrunner, we can see that the owner left the stock interior with some small changes. Actually, it is equipped with front bucket seats which recently have been reupholstered, original headliner, and side panels. However, the biggest change is applied on the dashboard with completely new and modern AutoMeter gauges. This Road Runner is factory equipped with a column shifter. Enjoy the video.
