1971 Road Runner

After helping my uncle and cousin restore a 1970 Chevelle SS 454 matching numbers, my uncle decided to get me a car to start on....it was delivered to the house yesterday, 1971 Plymouth Road Runner. It needs quite a lot of work, and its gonna be a fun project. I personally like restomods, so thats what were gonna do. Gonna probably drop a 528 Hemi in it and put it well over 600 horsepower its definitely gonna be a fun car to play with...and it will give my uncle and his chevelle a run for his money i will post pics of it soon and as its being done.

Nice! But the only problem with those cars are they are uni-body, no frame.

LOLOL....

PICS????? The roadrunner was MOPARS answer the '68 GTO. Hence the birth of the Judge to answer the Roadrunner. They've been playing catch up since.

They had to build something since the masses wanted a '68 GTO......
Pics, pics, pics, '71 was my favorite year Runner. I really liked the new body styling, especially the frontend.

I too like the body style, but I prefer the '73-'74 front end.
In fact, I have a friend that has a real nice stock condition '74 GTX (360/4 spd.) that I've been trying to buy from him.
If I finally persuade him to sell it to me, the first thing I'll have to do is ditch the Keystone wheels that are on it (Oops! Sorry 68greengoat).

I like Keystone Classics, cool rims, until they rust, then you can't fix them. There like Cragar SSs, 80's stuff. Oh, and I suppose you don't like Radial TAs either. Then go get yourself some 17" torque thrusts like everybody else is doing.

Every single classic MOPAR I've driven/rode in are cheap. It just feels loose, you hit the railroad tracks and the front end goes one way and the back end goes another, they rattle like no bodies bussness, and just feel like you might not make it home. Not like the GTO, no rattles no bangs, just like driving grandpa's old Pontiac, then you hit the gas and it bout like to suck the paint off the hood!
