1969 Plymouth Road Runner Review
says:
I owned a total of four (4) Road Runners in my life. I enjoyed them all. My first one was a share car between my mother and me. It was a B5 blue 383 automatic with 3:23 gears. Bench seat. An aftermarket A/C was add later. I relinquished my half to her when I purchased a Dodge Charger 500 Hemi. It was Forest Green. When I found the second Road Runner I fell hard. It was a 1969 1/2 440 six pack with the glasshood. 4 speed transmission and 4:10 Dana rearend. It was also B5 blue with bench seats. I kept both of these car until I joined the Air Force in 1972. At the time I had these two cars my Wife had a loaded Dodge Super Bee. It also was B5 blue. I bought the third Roadrunner used in 1975 after returning from my 2nd tour to S.E.A. it had a custom paint job of Silver, Red, and maroon. It was a 383 automatic with a black interior. I drove it for two years before I was sent to Europe. The four one was a field find. I purchased it for $400 in 1982 and never completed it. I sold it running to a nice young man. And lost track of what happened with it. I enjoyed all my Mopar cars greatly and to drive a 1969 Roadrunner is on my bucket list.

69 Beep Beep — The car has a radio however, the music that the 440 make is all the radio I need. This car has the Trac-Pak which makes highway driving a little difficult. Other than that and the drum brakes she's a beaut.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Everything.......Basically ownership.

Cons: Drum Brakes and gas mileage.

The Good The Bad And The Ugly — fast exiting fun terrible and good looking. the 69 is the bomb. yes the roadrunner is faster then most muscle cars but lacks that proper feel. for me the road runner is one of he best but its costly and corners like a pig

Pros: speed

Cons: handling

The Roadrunner. — Big car, not very aerodynamic, plenty of torque. Spacious interior, enough to hold 6 people. Expensive on gas, to power a high performance 383cu engine. It was a good and fun car to drive. The name says it all....very fast

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Performance

Cons: HARD ON GAS

1969 Road Runner — 1969 Plymouth Road Runner / B5 Blue / 383 - 4 speed / 8.75 Rear - 4.11 Ratio What can I say? The car definitely speaks for itself. It's a hell of a muscle car. Nothing sounds like a Mopar Big Block. Mine's got a 383 4bbl.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

69 Plymouth Road Runner — huge 7.2 litre v8, triple holley carburettas ( 6 pack) lots of torque and horsepower. amazing acceleration, does not handle very good round corners fantastic for drag racing. brakes are rubbish, soon to be uprated. the huge engine causes alot of vibration and rattles, interior pretty basic but does the job, exterior looks like a proper muscle car, sleak n sporty. cost of ownership is very expensive, average 10mpg and parts expensive and hard to find. amazing experience to drive, driving a muscle car is an opportunity that must be taken by everyone.

Pros: amazing power and acceleration, great muscle car image and motoring history

Cons: dated brakes, terrible fuel economy, hard to source parts

Pros: Runs, Drives, and is LOUD!

Cons: Not restored.
