The Plymouth Roadrunner is an impressive muscle car that has been popular since the day it was released. With its powerful engine, aggressive design, and affordability, it became a symbol of performance and excitement during a time when horsepower ruled the roads of America.
Built on the B-body platform, the Road Runner was introduced as a mid-level option trim for the Plymouth Belvedere model in 1968. It was named after the famous Warner Bros. cartoon character who was known for his speed and agility. The idea behind the Road Runner was to create a car that offered impressive performance without breaking the bank. Its appearance was bold with its prominent grille, distinctive hood scoop, and wide rear end. The Road Runner exuded power and athleticism. It was a no-frills, high thrill muscle car but the biggest thrill was under the hood!
