Description for Plymouth Road Runner 1974

Here it is folks. A 1974 Plymouth Roadrunner "RM21P" 1 of 280 big block 4-speeds built. In addition to that, is also came with factory air conditioning and the performance axle package which makes this one rare bird, not to mention, one of not many left. This one also came with PS, PB, AM radio but a factory AM/FM has been added, a non-tach dash but one has been added, bucket seats with a factory buddy seat. I have also added a passenger door chrome rear view mirror, and 4:10 gear set. The car was a blast to drive even with the tired engine and bad 2nd gear syncros. The car has its original interior including seats, carpet and headliner in nice condition. The body is as solid as stock 45 year-old cars come. For you that remember Ziebart rustproofing in the 70's, this car had it. Besides the shadow outline of the Ziebart sticker on the rear bumper, overspray can be seen in the engine compartment and trunk, and hole-plugs can be seen in the doors and rockers. The only major issue with the sheet metal is a hole in the driver's floor which was covered with a piece of sheet metal by my inspection garage 15 years ago when I purchased and put the car on the road. I bought the car 15 years ago out of South Carolina, and I was told it was originally a Texas car, which would explain why it has lasted so well. The chrome is all original as is the glass. The original transmission was recently rebuilt and a new clutch and pressure plate installed and they have zero miles on them. A new Hurst super shifter assembly was installed under the factory pistolgrip shifter. It also has 2 1/2" aluminized exhaust with factory tips. It has 14x6 rally wheels up front and 15x7 in the rear with 275 tires on them. all tires have less than 200 miles on them. Here's why I haven't run it since the transmission rebuild and engine swap. I was a moron. Last summer, I pulled the original tired engine and installed an interim 1976 truck 400. I was going to eventually put a 451 stroker motor in it, but that was down the road. I put a set of used 516 heads with bigger valves on it, installed a new performance camshaft, high-rise manifold and Holley carburetor. Like an idiot, I did not replace the freeze plugs while it was out and when I filled it with antifreeze, some of them started weeping so I didn't fire it up. Even though it is ready to fire, it has sat since then. Everything on the engine is hooked up and ready to go. The original engine of course comes with the car, as does many additional parts. Since my wife of 41 years died last fall, I have lost interest in it. My 30 year-old son has had his eyes on it since I bought it, but I have not been happy with him lately, so here is your chance. Those are the only reasons I have decided to sell my rare bird, so do not wait or I might get talked into keeping it. These rare pre-catalytic converter muscle cars are starting to leap in value as evidenced by a 10% increase in the value over last year as shown the NADA classic car price guide. https://nadaguides.com/Classic-Cars/1974/Plymouth/Road-Runner/2-Door-Coupe-400/Values Bid to own as this is a no reserve auction.
