Hey Mark,
Bjuice saw this driving around today, said he pulled in behind him and tried to buy the car like Count from Counting Cars. Says he had dyno sheets showing 552hp @5600rpm and 522 torque @4500rpm! Also had a 250NOS shot, badars Road Runner!

Hey Mark it was nice. I saw him going down the road and turned in muffler shop. I did a U TURN right in behind him..just like the count...the owner was a super nice black guy that was a motor head like me. We talked 1/2 hour. He even had dyno sheets in the car dash...he said it was original 383ci car with black shaker hood but he put the 440ci in it....I tried to get him to price it but he wasn't biting

Thanks Bone for Posting.

Agreed, sweet ride but the springs look chitty. Black would set them off with the yellow.

My Dad's first car was a 68 roadrunner 383 4sp red with a black top and he said it had console in it. I wish it was still around. Somthing ironic my father in law had a silver 69 roadrunner 383 4sp he bought new he wishes he still had it every time he sees one. The only thing we have is some pictures of both.

No he would not sell. I am always looking out for Road Runners 69 thru 72. This car was a big part of my childhood.
