A true time capsule!! This 68 Roadrunner was sold by the original owner in 72. It was then painted it's retro paint scheme in 1972-73. One day it was noticed by the original owner while sitting at a restaurant and tracked down. Not knowing it was his original car at that time, he then bought it back. Unfortunately the original owner passed away in 74 and the car was parked in a garage. It was left in a garage for 49 years when it was pulled out in Fall of 2022. The motor and transmission are original number's matching to the car. The motor was pulled out & overhauled since it hadn't been started in 49 years. Heads were gone over with bronze guides & a Mopar purple shaft Cam was added. The mechanical restoration was done by a Mopar expert. The fresh 383 drives the 727, which turns the Mopar 8 3/4 sure grip rear end with 355 gears. The odometer shows about 56k miles original to the car. The paint job was done in 1973 and is mostly original. The paint presents very well but does have 49 years of storage nicks & scratches. Pictures do not do this car justice. This one of a kind gem will stick out in any crowd!!
