Spearheaded by Plymouth Division’s Bob Anderson, Joe Sturm, and Jack Smith, the Belvedere-based Road Runner was a bare-bones muscle car inspired by Car and Driver magazine’s Brock Yates. Aimed straight at the fast-growing youth market, built to an affordable price under $3,000 and mandated to deliver 14- second quarter-mile ETs at 100 mph through the traps, the car was a runaway success exceeding the most optimistic forecasts to generate sales of nearly 45,000 units for 1968. Emblazoned with Warner Brothers’ famous Coyote-evading cartoon bird and complete with an outrageous “Beep-Beep” horn, the cheeky Road Runner tapped into America’s youth consciousness like few other cars. At once, the Road Runner transformed Plymouth’s once-stodgy image and redefined the American muscle car concept. In recognition of its success, the Road Runner was named Motor Trend Car of the Year for 1969. Since Plymouth controlled some 50 per cent of America’s police cruiser market during the late 1960s, Road Runner engineering was relatively straightforward with an abundance of heavy-duty parts and underpinnings available from the Chrysler-Plymouth parts bins for the car’s midsize B-body platform. The Road Runner’s standard 383 cubic inch engine received many upgrades from Chrysler’s 375-hp 440 V-8, including the big brother’s cylinder heads, camshaft, and even an oil-windage tray. These items, along with an unsilenced air cleaner and four-barrel carburetor, resulted in the Road Runner 383’s strong output of 335 hp and 425 pounds-feet of torque. Easy to maintain and docile on the street, the Road Runner 383 turned into a beast simply at the command of the driver’s right foot. By 1969, the 375-horsepower 440 became available in the Road Runner, bridging the gap between the 383 and full-boogie,
