Roadrunner ad

The car song thread reminded me of this old ad for new '69 Roadrunners. Sure would be fun if you could back in time with a bag full of money and buy 4 or 5 for that price.

Most bang for the buck in America in 69.  Family sized hot rod.  I knew a family from Australia in 72 in California, first car they owned in the US was a 69 Roadrunner automatic 383.

II have always liked Mopars, (before Benz and Fiat) in 2022 We still have a 73 Dart, my last (almost completed) hotrod project, .030 over 9.2 cr 440, 727 and other stuff.  A compilation of many parts from various cars and years some from various Fords.

Ordered one in dec '68. 4500.00, fair amount of options, but I stayed with the 383 and replaced the third with a dana 3.90, my only regret was not getting the elephant, but we were getting married in october so the money went towards life. Great car, got a picture of mom and I sitting in front of it the day we brought it home.

I had a 1969 Super Bee in the early 80's. when they could be bought cheap. Basically the same as a Road Runner and from what I heard and read about them they were more stripped down than a Road Runner. Mine originally had a 383 but had an earlier 440 in it. Stock engine.4 speed with 3.23 rear end. I was never really impressed with that 440. My brother had a 73 "Cuda 340 and I think it was faster. My car had no power steering or power brakes. just a heater and bucket seats. 150 MPH speedometer that saw 120 a few times. 😇

 Sold it after about 5 years and bought a 1969 Z28. That was a fun car.

Not very good photos but my car since 4/26/1976 when the original purchaser gave it to me when I got a driver's license. It was a present to himself when he came home from Vietnam in 1968. 

Still has original 340, 4 speed and 3.23 rear gears. All drum brakes and nothing power. 340K on the clock also with running only Quaker State 10W-30 motor oil all through the years.

I also do, I bought it for 2500  when i was 13 and sold it for 9500 to put a down payment on a house, now the car is worth more than that house. This pic was taken by the new ownerScreenshot_20190105-082517_Google.thumb.jpg.c1af52113156e6e22ee783d0e0287ada.jpg

Bought mine when I was 15 still got it at 57.  Raised a lot of **** when I was young but now days I just take the neighbors dog for rides. She seems to like it. 

Is that a hemi? Supercharger alone or nitrous also? What ETs?

Rich NORTH WESTERN Iowa kids 🤑😁  We in Western, IA had to make do with hand me downs with our parent's 'family' cars.😢

Yeah right! That Super Bee I paid $2000 for. Sold it a few years later for $3000. Imagine the value now.

Nope. It was getting pretty rusty so I sold it and bought a pickup. Should have kept it like so many others. Have a 1971 Chevelle now, bought it in 1985 or thereabouts.

My father in law's.  He's had it since about '80.  Recently built the 340, mean cam, not a show car but a fun driver.
