Introducing the Legendary 1973 Plymouth Roadrunner 340!
This exceptional car comes with a remarkable pedigree, having been crafted and driven by none other than Al Young, a true automotive icon with an illustrious racing history. Al Young's accolades include being inducted into the 2018 NHRA Hall of Fame, as well as securing championship titles in various NHRA divisions and the prestigious 1981 AHRA World Championship. This Roadrunner clone is a testament to his expertise and passion for high-performance vehicles.
Built for Pro Touring in the United States and having conquered three epic tours across 34 European countries, this Roadrunner is designed for unfaltering performance. It's not just a car; it's a piece of automotive history.
Under the hood, you'll find a hand-built 340 engine, meticulously documented from a Satellite/Sebring 318. With a final drive ratio of 3.23 and a Sure-Grip differential, this car offers unparalleled power and control. The suspension and running gear have been upgraded to ensure a smooth ride, even at its impressive average cruising speed of 120 kph (75 mph) at 3200 rpm.
Despite its incredible performance, this Roadrunner is surprisingly efficient, achieving a fuel consumption of 6.2 km per liter (14.6 miles per gallon). You can effortlessly maintain your speed with the aftermarket cruise control and stay comfortable with the aftermarket underdash air conditioning powered by a Sanden-type compressor.
Inside, the car boasts luxurious 2005 Chrysler Crossfire six-way heated bucket seats and Bilstein shocks for both the front and rear. The Firmfeel torsion bars, front and rear sway bars, tubular control arms, tubular tie rods, Stage II steering gearbox, and custom rear springs provide superior handling and control.
With an aluminum four-core Champion radiator, this car can handle the most demanding drives, just like Al Young himself during his 40 years of racing for Bardahl Corp.
But that's not all! This Roadrunner has ventured beyond the American Pacific Northwest. It has been shipped from Seattle to the Port of Rotterdam, Netherlands, to embark on incredible adventures across Europe. Al Young and his wife toured the continent in 2014, 2015, and 2016, even attending the Power Big Meet in Vasteras, Sweden for three consecutive years.
This 1973 Plymouth Roadrunner Clone is more than a car; it's a symbol of performance, history, and adventure. Join the legacy, own a piece of Al Young's remarkable journey, and experience the road in a way you've never imagined. Drive the legend!
