 1973 PLYMOUTH ROAD RUNNER 400cid PISTOL GRIP 4-SPEED.  This thing is just a BEAUTIFUL car that turns heads everywhere it goes.  As stated it has a non-numbers matching 400 cu. in. big block with a pistol grip 4-speed and 7 1/4 limited slip rear that's a lot of fun to drive.  The motor was rebuilt about 7 years ago and the only variations from a stock rebuild is a Comp Cams 280 mag cam (Go check out the specs on line if you like, I've dropped this cam in several motors over the years just because of the lope) to give it the idle I like at a stop light, an aluminum dual-plane intake, Holly 800 Double Pumper and a set of headers.  The front end was completely rebuilt about 6 years ago and handles like it just rolled off the assembly line. The exhaust was professionally bent and installed ending just in front of the rear axle and bent down to "Sweep the street" when you take off, (I just love doing that, LOL). This car is not fast and hasn't been treated like it is, I'm not sure but I think the rear gears are around 273 but I could be a little off on that, you'll be able to cruise at 80 MPH at around 2800 - 2900 RPM and at my age that's what makes it fun.  I'm aware that I listed many things in the "Item Description" category that may make it sound like there's more wrong than right with this car but that's absolutely not the case, this is a real stunner of a car as seen in the pics and I just want you, the buyer, to be happy and have no surprises when you get it.  Shipping is going to be up to you take care of through the whole process.  A non-refundable 500.00 deposit is required immediately at the end of the auction and payment in FULL by cashiers check or bank draft before the car even leaves my garage, This is listed locally so I reserve the right to end this listing at any time.  Thank you so much for looking!!!

'71 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible sells for $3.5M [w/video]

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 09:29:00 EST


We're plenty used to seeing classic cars selling for millions of dollars. It's just that they're usually European: Ferraris, Bugattis, Mercedes and the like. There are some rare American exceptions, usually wearing the names Duesenberg or Shelby. But what we have here is the most expensive Chrysler product ever sold at auction.
The vehicle in question is a Plymouth Barracuda - specifically a 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible, chassis #BS27R1B315367 - that Mecum Auctions just sold after eight solid minutes of feverish bidding for a high bid of $3.5 million at its auction in Seattle, Washington. That figure positively eclipses the $2.2 million paid for a strikingly similar Hemi Cuda (chassis #BS27R1B269588) fetched nearly seven years ago in Scottsdale and another that was the first muscle car to break the million-dollar mark in 2002.

SRT belatedly claims Plymouth Prowler as one of its own

Wed, 19 Dec 2012 16:31:00 EST

Before Chrysler had Street and Racing Technology, it had Performance Vehicle Operations. What the two entities have in common, before SRT became its own brand, of course, is that each was created to take Chrysler and Dodge (and Plymouth, before it was unceremoniously killed off) vehicles to the next level of style and performance.
We'll leave the question of whether or not the old Plymouth (and later Chrysler) Prowler was ultimately a stylish, performance-oriented car to you, but the boys and girls currently leading the SRT charge at the Pentastar headquarters are keen to accept the retro-rod into the fold.
According to the automaker, all of SRT's current high-performance models owe a debt of gratitude to the old Prowler, due mostly to that car's use of lightweight bits and pieces and innovative construction techniques. If nothing else, the fact that the Prowler's frame is "the largest machined automotive part in history" is pretty cool. Read all the details here.

'Blood Muscle' auction to sell impressive collection of ill-begotten classic cars

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 09:31:00 EST

The old saying goes that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. But being a criminal can involve more than just taking a trip to the big house; it can also mean losing possessions purchased from any ill-gotten gains. Still, one man's loss is another's gain, and if you're in Lodi, NJ, on September 12, you stand the chance to buy some of the ultimate muscle cars from the US Marshals in what is being gruesomely nicknamed the Blood Muscle auction.
The grisly moniker was earned because all of the vehicles belonged to the president of a blood testing company who is facing prison time for alleged bribery, according to Hemmings. After all, they are muscle cars bought with actual blood money. The seven-vehicle collection includes some of the ultimate muscle cars ever made, and the original buyer clearly had an eye for rarity.
This cornucopia of V8 power includes a teal 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429, a 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang, an orange 1970 Plymouth Superbird, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible and perhaps most prized of all - a trio of 1969 Yenko Chevys with a Chevelle, Nova and Camaro all represented. From the included photos, all of them look to be in fantastic condition.
