Plymouth stole a march on everybody else in 1968 with the Road Runner.
This time Plymouth got it right; putting a 335 bhp 383 cid V-8 engine with 440 Super Commando heads and camshaft in a 3,000-lb, two-door coupe with a 4-speed floor-shift synchro transmission. Base price was $2,870, skinned down to a rubber floor mat and non-pleat taxicab interior. A total of 29,240 buyers bought the coupe and a further 15,359 stepped up for the two-door hardtop – which was added mid-year – for the 44,559 total.
If you wanted carpet and bright work you had to spend $79.20 for the décor group. The base car was quick and simple, and capped by a charming beep-beep Road Runner cartoon horn, which supposedly cost $50,000 to license from Warner Brothers (plus $10,000 to develop the beep-beep sound).
The Road Runner was a bargain-basement performance version of the Belvedere and Satellite lineups.
At the end of the year, Plymouth sales had risen 12 percent and the division remained the number four U.S. automaker in the sales race.
Popular Road Runner options included an automatic transmission ($299), blackout hood ($18), vinyl roof ($79), among others.
