Under the hood is the stout & correct to this car 383 c.i. V8. This 10.5:1 compression powerplant was bored .030 over and fitted with a Mopar Performance Street Hemi grind camshaft. Induction duties are taken care of via dual 4bbl. Carter carburetors atop an aluminum Offenhauser intake. Ceramic coated headers get the exhaust gases out in a hurry through the custom dual exhaust system. This car looks and sounds just plain mean. Be sure to play our video/sound clip at the beginning of our presentation as well.

Further inspection of the engine compartment will confirm plenty of chrome and stainless accents. Attention to detail is prevalent throughout this build.
"Mr. Vadar, your car is ready."
The interior features custom leather bucket seating as well as original gauges. The center console is custom made, fitted with power toggle swtiches controlling aspects such as the radio, nitrous, and fan setup.
The exterior showcases the 20+ year old paint very well. This professional finish is in very good condition to this day. Subtle hand pinstriping accents this car perfectly.
The sinister air grabber hood is finished in semi-gloss black as are the top door edges if you look closely. This is one bad machine.
The back side has been treated to the black-out treatment.
The front grille shows well and is complimented by plenty of polished midnight black paint throughout. The body is very straight down either side.
This perfect stance is thanks to the polished aluminum wheels wrapped in meaty P325/50R15 rubber out back and 205/60R15s up front. The 8 3/4 rear end has been narrowed and houses 3.55 gears.
The undercarriage is in expectional condition, showcasing the stout 8 3/4 rear end along with a painted and detailed gas tank, low-restriction dual exhaust, and chromed front end components. The 383 c.i. engine has been fitted with a chromed oil pan, dust shield, and transmission pan. The flooring and underbody is solid, indicitive of a dry climate car.

This car is not for the faint of heart.

An interesting fact to note is that Plymouth originally paid Warner Brothers 50,000 to use the RoadRunners cartoon image. I'd say that was money well spent, wouldn't you?? BEEP!! BEEP!!

This car was built in Ontario, Canada and equipped with the 383/300HP 4bbl. engine.
The trunk is custom upholstered and fitted with the NOS bottle.
The door panels are custom made and the door undersides are solid.
1971 was the beginning of the end for muscle cars. The '71 Plymouth RoadRunner showcased a brand-new body design. It rode on a 115-inch wheelbase. Gone was the large 440 c.i. 4bbl. V8 option and the horsepower ratings for all engine options decreased.
This beautiful '71 certainly has a personality all its own. Take a trip back to the 90's, 80's and the 70's in this time machine !
