1971 Plymouth Road Runner Description

Here we have a very nice original metal 71 Plymouth Road Runner. The paint is 80% original with some touch ups over the years on the lower areas. Very solid, super clean body panel fitment. 100% original interior. The original carpet is a little worn but it’s original. There is a half dollar size hole in the headliner. Awesome dash never even had a hole drilled in it. Even the vintage FM convertor uses a factory hole.

Late build June of 71. Has a 72 front bumper. I have no way of knowing if it’s original or not. It is known that Chrysler did start using 72 parts on 71 cars late in the build year. Original undercoating still covers most brackets and bolts so I believe it is original.

Car is showing just over 25,000 miles. Although I cannot prove this is the actual miles take a good at all the images below and a strong case can be made that it’s original.

The car was ordered overseas and picked up in the US. See the I on the tag.

The body has a lot of various scratches and dings around it as you would expect with its age. The right rear quarter is showing some bubbling near the front. Still has the original back out on the pinch weld. No problems in the floors or trunk. Even the inner fenders don’t have the classic bubble in front of the hood hinges.

The GOOD:

383 4-Speed, 3.91 suregrip (was original 3.23)

The Bad

Some paint touch up.
Original exhaust, intake and carb have been changed over the years. The Holly 750 and Edelbrock intake work fantastic!

Classic Carb stud too long hood ding and a light dent where they kept trying to close the hood when it was too long!

Dash pad has a slight imperfection on top from likely an aftermarket tach. No holes or cracks!
