The Chrysler hemi was introduced in March of 1964 and lots of us in the hot roddy media business are honoring it in different ways. Consider the highlighting of this totally awesome factory hemi 1969 Road Runner as another of those small honors. This car is so good I can hardly stand it and when you see what the “secret” it is hiding is, you’ll dig it even more. Personally, I think a hemi Road Runner is tops when it comes to factory muscle cars. They were what all of us knuckle dragging guys love. Devoid of most every option other than the best motor, engine, and transmission available, they were good at nothing other than running their asses off in a straight line. This car was ordered along those lines when new because it has a bench seat, rubber floor mats, and a four speed. OOGA BOOGA!
The body is mint, the interior is mint, the underside is perfect and the seller claims that he sticks it on a lift and cleans the BOTTOM of the car every time he drives it. The guy clearly knows what he has and is taking care to keep it absolutely show worthy. Granted, the guy only drives it 10 miles per month. On the plus side he keeps it full of 110 octane race gas which is far superior than the crap you get from the pump today which would be eating the fuel system as we type this.
So this secret we have been hinting at? The factory block is stock, the carbs are right, and the rest of the motor looks to be correct, but the car was drag raced at some point in its life and during that period and a big cam, 12:1 compression, and 4:10 gears were all part of that equation. That makes the car less streetable (but on 110-octane it is at least doable) but it must sound like nothing else at the cruise night, that is for sure. This is one bad ass hunk of iron and it is 100% BangShift approved!
