    I’m Roger, my dad gave me his 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner 383 he bought his senior year of high school. He met my mom the year after and they have been married 47 years. Fixing up the car so they can have a first date again before anything happens. All advise is appreciated. Thanks.

    Welcome from Southern Indiana. Looks to be a 68. I love hand me downs.

    Welcome , it does appear to be a 68 by the trunk finish panel. As you get it cleaned up, post more pictures, we love pictures. Lol

    welcome to the group.
    If the car has been sitting for a while, check the gas tank etc for rust, sludge, and varnish etc before trying to start it
