1969 Plymouth Road Runner
The Plymouth Road Runner was the no-frills muscle car version of intermediate Belvedere, Sebring, and later Volare sedans built by the Plymouth division of the Chrysler Corporation in the United States between 1968 and 1980. In 1968, the original batch of muscle cars were in the opinion of many moving away from their roots as relatively cheap fast cars as they gained more and more options. Although Plymouth already had a performance car in the GTX, they decided to go back to the drawing board and reincarnate the original muscle car concept. Plymouth wanted to create a car that would run 14 second times in the quarter mile and would sell for less than US $3,000. They met both of their goals and the idea of the low-buck musclecar hit the street. The success of the Road Runner would far outpace the upscale and lower volume GTX, with which it was often confused.
