    `70 road runner - finally getting to the restoration!

    Not much progress on the car between holidays and my wife, myself and kid getting the China virus right after Christmas, hoping to start welding the trunk floor in next week. Another distraction was kid's cub scout Pinewood derby tomorrow, as a fundraiser they are having a separate parent's...

    Crazy money? Mecum `69 road runner.

    I don`t think hand controls were ever an option.

    Crazy money? Mecum `69 road runner.

    Prices are crazy - black T/A $200k, pink AAR $280k and others. I guess the economy isn`t hurting some as much as others.

    Crazy money? Mecum `69 road runner.

    $145k for a 383, automatic, over-restored? https://www.mecum.com/lots/FL0123-533488/1969-plymouth-road-runner/?fbclid=IwAR1ZRUZhKPcF1cn23Ijs9uXPaGuO1H2Ktz-ercfuk8xdo3WX1hakhxbdDZM

    Is this coming to the rest of us ?

    "Because the shell of a C3 isn't worth 12 grand in any world, Hawley, contacted the Appraiser's Office on Nov. 30 and was informed he had recourse. The office issued him a Payment Under Protest application and instructed him how and when to file, as well as advised him to submit further...

    Is this coming to the rest of us ?

    What type of tax is on a parts car, as 69hemibeep said unless it is registered there is no tax to pay in my state?

    this can't happen to me

    There may also be more to it - maybe some of the street racers are involved in other crimes such as stolen cars/pars, drug trafficking etc. - who knows?

    this can't happen to me

    Street Outlaws is a made up show done on shut down streets with lighting, safety crews etc. - it`s NOT street racing.

    this can't happen to me

    Guy was way too long winded for me to watch it so I skipped thru it. My take - guy was participating (videoing) in organized illegal street racing and got caught, maybe the LEO`s went a bit overboard for a Class B misdemeaner but that had video evidence. Don`t do the crime if you can`t do the...

    look out the epa is comming

    I think the states are allowed to make thier own emission laws, not sure how much the EPA is involved in that. The new crackdown sounds like it is directed towards aftermarket companies that offer modifications to newer vehicles.

    look out the epa is comming

    New Hampshire only does emissions on OBDII cars and light trucks so my Barracuda and Ram 2500 only get safety inspections - Ram yearly, Barracuda every other year with antique plates.

    Another pic request- holes in rear frame rail and trunk cross member.

    Over on FBBO a guy said the `70 had two rubber stops screwed in the support instead of the brackets. I actually had the rubber pieces I took off but thought they might have been added by a previuos owner. Anyone have a `70 that can confirm that they are supposed to be there? AMD shows the...

    Another pic request- holes in rear frame rail and trunk cross member.

    Ya, I probably could, I have 30+ years in sheet metal shops, 10 years in collision shops and many years restoring my rusty junks so I have some experience with metal. :rofl: Would need some dimensions though.

    Anyone have an old support with them on it?

    Another pic request- holes in rear frame rail and trunk cross member.

    I figured the frame holes don`t belong and I think there was a fuel cell or some other non-stock tank mounted so they must of cut of the brackets - crap! I bet they only come with the support and I can`t buy them separate?

    Another pic request- holes in rear frame rail and trunk cross member.

    Passenger frame rail behind axle has two small holes, factory or did someone drill them? Trunk support/cross member has a small hole between the larger two on both sides, factory or someone drill?

    I’ve been had

    Only minor differences between a regular 383 and a rr 383 HP, mainly just slightly hotter cam. I have my matching numbers engine and it will look stock but I built it up a bit for more torque and HP but nothing crazy as it`s going to be a nice cruiser. I would just build up your `66 383 how you...
