I could sit in the driveway to stare at it all day.
That slow week between Christmas and New Year's. I begin to fantasize then tell myself the fantasy could be made real. I've got that itch again for a 1975 Road Runner. I know of one available that won't break the bank but I'll almost certainly suffer 318 remorse. If I go down that rabbit hole to buy a 1975 Road Runner I need a 360 or 400 car. Despite the rumors of a few made consensus is no 440 V8 was available.
The way I'm sitting right now I'd drop serious cash for one with sliding metal sunroof, a 360 or 400 V8 and a tach. Silly I know but I want the tach! Then I'd do what Plymouth should have, install a pistol gripped manual transmission. A five speed with an overdrive. I learned recently the only manual transmission available on the '75 RR was a three on the tree coupled to the 318 bread 'n butter V8.
I love the 1971-1972 two door Plymouth B-body. With no hint of irony, I see the family lineage in the 1975. I find the 1975 Road Runner nearly as attractive and it's a base that takes modding well.
If you know of one in real nice driver condition or better for sale let me know. Good thing my wife doesn't read this page.
