1969 Road Runner 440

Posted on Saturday, February 7th

[ad name=”Adsense 468×15 text below title”]1969-roadrunner-44010Here’s a factory original 440 Road Runner; one of the true fire breathing, legendary Muscle cars from Plymouth. This one has been sitting in a field for 25+ years and certainly shows it.

Behind the 440 is a factory 4 speed and 3.55 gears. Body-wise this car needs some work, but not as bad as some.  Floor pans, trunk floor and trunk drops, rear quarter panels, wheel wells, etc. all need some seriour work.

The 440 engine was rated at 390 HP and 490 lb-ft of torque.

    That isnt a a real 440 car. All 1969 440 road runner were 440 six barrel cars that came standard with 26 inch radiators and that car has a 22 inch in it. Not to mention the lack of six barrel and lift off hood.

    Thanks Dave for the comment. It’s certainly possible this isn’t a factory 440. I was going by the info that was submitted with the photos. The hood looks to be a replacement either way since it’s rust pattern doesn’t match the rest of the car.

    Curious how you can tell that the radiator is a 22″ vs. a 26″?

    The roadrunner was a 383. I had one I put a 440 in which if I would had changed the decal to GTX that would have looked like my old car. Wish i knew where it was.
