1970 Plymouth, Road Runner, 440 6 Pack, CrazyPurple, Restored, For Sale, Test Drive
This is a full rotisserie restoration of a 59,000 mile 440 6-Pack car that was originally bought from Cal Worthington Chrysler Dodge Plymouth in Long Beach, California and was optioned as you see it today: In Plum Crazy purple livery, white interior, 440 6-Pack and factory four speed manual transmission. What could be better?
Dave Witter bought the Road Runner on December 15, 1969. It was a car that was returned to the Cal Worthington after another couple decided they wanted an automatic GTX rather than a 4-speed car! They accumulated about 158 miles on the car over their three day ownership! Dave Witter then bought it as a returning serviceman in the military. He paid $2,936 for it and later drove it home to rural Missouri. He kept the Road Runner for 37 years!!
After 37 years of ownership Dave sold his Road Runner to our consignment client Jim from Yucaipa, California. Jim set out on a complete and thorough restoration of every component of the car by using a rotisserie and all local expert resources. The details of the restoration include:
-Complete rebuild of the factory warranty replacement block (correct 1970 440 block without numbers) with a NOS crank, rods and pistons, hardened value seats, manly valves and springs. Jim installed a Mopar Performance purple shaft cam (484 lift) that helps the Road Runner produce 475 hp and 435 ft lbs of torque. It has an Edelbrock intake and three Holly carbs as it was originally equipped. It is now equipped with headers and a 2.5″ exhaust.
-3:54 posi rear-end was rebuilt with all new components by Curry Enterprises and the original Hemi 18 spline 4-speed transmission was fully rebuilt with new gears and shafts.
-The brakes, front end, radiator and fuel tank are all new and rebuilt and the wiring is all new from M&H.
-The paint was done by Mike Face in San Bernardino using Sherwin Williams two stage paint and, again, using a full rotisserie. The correct white interior is all new from Legendary interior. The glass was also fully replaced. The bumpers are the original bumpers with new triple chrome plating.
This is an excellent example to add to your collection. This Road Runner can be shown in competitive events or to race for pinkslips!! This is a two owner, original California car that has a terrific history and wonderful restoration.
