This 1969 Plymouth Road Runner is a factory 4-speed hardtop example, that features its numbers-matching 426 Hemi and just under 59k miles. Only 421 domestic-market Road Runner hardtops were produced with the 426 for 1969, and of these just 234 were 4-speed cars according to the Chrysler Registry. This largely unmodified example retains its original engine, transmission, and differential as verified by Mopar expert Galen Govier in 2008, and includes Track Pak and Air Grabber packages. The car was bought new for $4300 by its first owner in Elgin, Illinois and traded hands among friends until its acquisition by the seller in 2008, who is its fourth owner. Records include early paperwork and an original build sheet along with documentation from Govier. The exterior was reportedly repainted a single time in its original color of Formal Black some years ago, and shows a high gloss down clean-looking sides. Sheet metal is thought to be all original and is described as largely straight. Rarely driven in inclement weather, the car has never required rust repair according to its previous owner. Steel 15? wheels wear clean-looking reproduction Red Line Tires. The factory turbine-style covers that were installed when new are included in the sale of the car. Chrome bumpers appear undistorted and shine deeply in the photos, and the 1969-only front grille looks straight. Hemi-labeled vertical hood ducts were functional with the Air Grabber option equipped on this car, and can be manually opened and closed by the driver. Factory Road Runner decals and badging appear complete, including the single small right-side Pentastar fender emblem. The trunk is undercoated on its sides and is reported by the previouse seller to have no meaningful corrosion under its original-looking tartan vinyl mat. The included spare wheel wears a Goodyear bias-ply tire, and factory jacking tools and instructions remain present. Two-tone tan upholstery fits well on the standard front bench seat, showing little apparent damage or wear. Door panels wear matching vinyl that looks similarly fresh. Black carpeting is thought to be original and is covered with period rubber mats, and no notable corrosion is present on the floors underneath according to the previous seller. The upper dash shows no splits in photos, and other interior plastics appear free of fading or distortion. The factory three-spoke wheel retains its Road Runner insert and appears free of cracks, as does the color-matched knob atop the stock Hurst floor shifter. Other factory controls look intact. Note the orange under-dash lever for the Air Grabber hood vents. Clear horizontal instruments include an odometer showing a believed-accurate 59k miles. The car was ordered with an optional AM radio, and air conditioning was not available with the Hemi powerplant. Underhood, the 426ci Hemi was verified as numbers-matching by Govier and has reportedly never been removed from the car. The engine was factory-equipped with forged pistons, connecting rods, and crank, as well as five main bearings, solid lifters and 10.25:1 compression. It carried advertised ratings of 425 gross horsepower and 490 lb. ft. of torque. Optional Air Grabber fiberglass ducting feeds air to twin four-barrel carburetors, and stock-looking finishes are present. The Track Pak option brought improved cooling through a larger radiator and “Torque Drive” fan. The engine bay appears free of notable corrosion in its seams and corners, and retains its special Voice of Road Runner “beep beep” horn along with many factory decals. Power is routed to an A-833 4-speed manual and “Sure Grip” limited-slip Dana 60 rear end with 3.54:1 ratio, both also verified as original by Govier. Dual exhausts appear relatively fresh, as does the driveshaft. Road Runner suspension included heavy-duty springs and torsion bars, with the Track Pak adding a front sway bar. The chassis includes a 426-specific factory skid plate on its front K-member and wears an even blac
