Can you imagine calling a Road Runner a “Sleeper”? When you first lay eyes on this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner, you’d never guess what lies beneath the seemingly stock exterior. She may look innocent, but this Road Runner is anything but! Under that Spring Green paint and white vinyl top lies a wicked secret.
Major props to the masterminds behind this incredible build. This ’69 Road Runner Restomod is built for one thing: speed. And I’m not just talking about straight-line performance here. They’ve gone all out with upgrades like the Caltracs traction system and a Dana 60 rear end sporting 3.54 gears. And the sweet sound of power? Courtesy of the Magnaflow exhaust system.
Taking a closer look, you’ll find an opening in the headlight. What’s the purpose, you ask? Well, it’s strategically designed to gulp down some cold air and feed it to the beast within. And what a beast it is! Dodge Hellcat HEMI V8 engine unleashing 707hp, paired with a 6-speed Tremec manual transmission and a pistol grip shifter. The roar of the supercharger sends shivers down my spine.
This Hellcat Swapped ’69 Road Runner is a perfect example of blending old-school charm with modern power, and it all just works seamlessly. Prepare to be blown away by this ultimate restomod masterpiece in AutotopiaLA’s video below!
