1968 Plymouth Road Runner
Why This Car Is Special
The Plymouth Road Runner is a mid-size car with a focus on performance built by Plymouth in the United States between 1968 and 1980. Plymouth developed the Road Runner to market a lower priced, basic trim model to its upscale GTX.
We have a sharp black restored 1968 Plymouth Road Runner that is very original here at Skyway Classics that was a purpose-built muscle car, it was meant to go fast while retaining a spartan look and interior, meaning less weight and frills.
This is a correct RM21 H code 383 car, which means a lot today as a lot of Satellite clones pretend to be a Road Runners. Not the case here, this is a real one!

It is powered by the Plymouth performance built, what we believe to be, numbers matching 383 cubic inch V8 engine with a four-speed manual transmission shifted by the Hurst shifter.
The 383 has a factory stock intake, valve covers, heads, and block, with a four-barrel carb, black 383 Road Runner Air cleaner assembly with the correct decals, factory cast iron exhaust manifolds, dual exhaust, with it sitting in an original looking clean, painted, and detailed engine compartment.
The underneath is as clean as the engine compartment and it drives and handles well with plenty of get-up-and-go.
The black vinyl factory looking interior has a bench seat, three-spoke Road Runner steering wheel, the original dash and gauge package, 4-speed chrome Hurst shifter with the white cue-ball knob on it, black carpet, matching rear seat, great door panels, Road Runner emblems, and a pushbutton radio system.
It has a lot of originality to this interior and it looks as it did back when it was new.
The stealthy black paint scheme with the black hood and Road Runner scoop really pops and the muscle car lines look super as well as the front and rear chrome bumpers, glass, trim, and it has the right factory stance too with the raised white letter BF Goodrich Radial Ta’s it rides on and mounted on the black and chrome Cragar factory styled steel wheels and chrome lug nuts.
It has the famous Road Runner cartoon graphics that Plymouth paid $50,000 to Warner Bros.-Seven Arts to use the Road Runner name and likeness from their Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner cartoons as well as a great looking black Vinyl top.
The restored original looking sharp black 1968 Plymouth Road Runner we have here at Skyway Classics is an iconic muscle car and a must have for any serious collector.
It retains that spartan look and interior that the Road Runner was all about and is a fast reminder of Plymouth supercars.
