This gorgeous '70 Road Runner has recently undergone a complete 2 Year Nut-and-Bolt Rotisserie Restoration completed by a 25-year Chrysler certified master technician in July of 2013.

The speedometer gear has been changed to be correct for the tire size and has a new Mopar speedometer cable. All of the shifter and kick down linkage has also been restored.

The original and correct 8.75-inch 3.23 Sure Grip rear end has been fully rebuilt with new Mopar performance heavy-duty rear springs, rear mounting clips and Mopar Nos rear shocks. The driveshaft has also been restored and has new U-joints.

The Road Runner has new parking brake cables and a restored parking brake ratchet.

The front suspension has been completely rebuilt with all new upper and lower ball joints; inner and outer tie rod ends, pitman and idler arms, lower control arm bushings, sway bar links and bushings. All hard parts have been media cleaned before they were painted.

The wheels and tires have been upgraded with 15-x7-inch on the front and 15-x8- inch on the rear. The rims are Mopar steel wheels powder-coated jet black with original Mopar Plymouth Division "dog dish" hubcaps. The tires are new BF Goodrich 235/70/15 on the front and 275/60/15 on the rear.
