Barn Finds located this dusty 1970 Challenger for sale on eBay. It’s a 383 4-speed car that is a runner. Starting bid is an optimistic $25,000. The chrome strip surrounding the front end is said to be a rare option, code M28 (which is decoded as Front Bumper Periphery). Anybody familiar with this “option”? Follow the bidding here on eBay.

Street Legal TV located this very cool Plymouth Suburban on Craigslist. A plain Jane wagon from a distance, the owner took a very low mileage (44,000 miles!), “no option”, 440 powered wagon and added a tasteful list of go-fast goodies. Find the Craigslist ad here. More pics after the jump!
Here’s an illustration that Hot Rod Magazine used in their review of a 1968 Plymouth Road Runner in their November 1967 issue. Back then Editor Eric Dahlquist wrote:
“And that, pal, is what Road Runners are made of. It’s a supercar in every sense of the term but one—price. That’s why you’re going to love it. The accessories, a very few, like the Hemi, are there, but the basic package will blow the doors off almost anything in the asphalt jungle, and some of those cats cost a grand more. You can do a lot with that extra thousand dollars.”
Pretty cool, huh? Via Hot Rod
