This car was initially for sale, but then the owner decided to keep it since it seemed that no one was able to give money for it.
”…So I felt 18k was me just getting what I paid for the car and have into it and I felt that was fair. Its also complete 1969 Road Runner but seems that no one really has that kind of money these days to spend on a muscle car so I decided to keep the car!”
The Plymouth Road Runner is a mid-size car with a focus on performance built by Plymouth in the United States between 1968 and 1980.
Plymouth paid $50,000 to Warner Bros.-Seven Arts to use the Road Runner name and likeness from their Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner cartoons (as well as a “beep, beep” horn, which Plymouth paid $10,000 to develop).
The earliest of the 1968 models were available only as 2-door pillared coupes (with a B-pillar or “post” between the front and rear windows), but later in the model year, a 2-door “hardtop” model (sans pillar) was offered.
The Road Runner of 1968-1970 was based on the Belvedere, while the GTX was based on the Sport Satellite, a car with higher-level trim and slight differences in the grilles and taillights.
In our case, what’s your thoughts ? Was the decision of the owner to keep the ride and not to sell it good idea ?
