Classic interiors

The interiors of the silver 1968 road runner have been kept as authentic as possible. The Hurst shifter is floor-mounted, which means that there is no need for a console, allowing the manufacturers to use bench seats. Apart from the power steering and air conditioning, the interiors are minimalistic, showing the car’s serious dedication towards performance and handling.
