There were 7,268 1972 Roadrunners produced. Of these, 3,828 were sold with the P-code E68 400 4 bbl HP engine. Also of the 3,828 sold, only 906 were sold with the factory 4 speed. So we are looking at a 1 of 906 rarity.
This car was a weekend warrior at the local strip. The owner before me drove it to the strip, took slicks from the trunk and raced it for the day then drove it home. This 400 runs good and has plenty of pep. It has a 3:55 sure grip 489 casting rear end. Throaty dual exhaust exiting all the way out back. I acquired this car with the extended fender flares on ALL fenders. The black paint has small bubbles all over it and the body has a few dents here and there. There is NO floor/trunk rust that I know of. I keep this car inside as did the previous owner. This car is definitely no show car, but is a runner and driver. I take it out on weekends to dust off the back roads and it's so much fun to grab gears in. The transmission is #'s matching. I do know where locally there is a date coded 1972 HP 400 if buyer is interested in getting closer to #'s matching. Block would cost extra.
Power steering, not power brakes- but- drums all the way around. Steers good and brakes good. Recently replaced master cylinder.
Because of the vehicle's age, it is being sold in AS-IS WHERE-IS condition without warranty expressed or implied.
This is a great start for a restoration or just a great entry level muscle car that gets lots of looks. Clear title, can drive up onto transport vehicle.
This is listed locally and I reserve the right to end auction early in case of a sale locally.

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.
The US Marshal's so-called Blood Muscle Auction was completed earlier this month, with the prestigious nine-car field (two cars were added following Autoblog's initial story, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 and a rare, mid-restoration 1971 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda) finding new and hopefully law-abiding owners.
While we'd normally recap the stars of the show, in this particular auction, every car's sale was newsworthy. The full list of sale prices doesn't seem to be published, but according to The New York Times, the auction brought in a total of $2.5 million, or an average of about $277,000 per car.
The king of the contest seems to be a 1970 Plymouth Superbird (above, right), complete with a 426-cubic-inch Hemi V8, which brought home $575,000. The trio of Yenko Chevys, meanwhile, all easily cleared the six-figure mark, with the Yenko Camaro (above, far right) clearing $315,000, the Chevelle crossing the block for $237,500 and the supremely rare - one of just 37 - Yenko Nova (shown above, left) selling for an even $400,000.
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.
