The early 70s oil crisis in the US changed the muscle car world almost overnight. Hemis were long gone and big blocks were on life support. While the 360-powered Aspen R/T and Volare Road Runner were rated at only 170 hp, they were still competitive with the Camaro, Corvette and Trans Ams of the day. Are there many F-body fans out there? See the story at Hooniverse. More pics after the jump!
Hey, it’s our first F-body! Category added! Writes Franklin:
I am the proud original owner of this 1976 Road Runner. I call her “Superchicken.” I bought her new in 1976 at Sellers Chrysler Plymouth, in Maryland. Right off the showroom floor. It has the roadrunner package w/ Super Pak, in Spitfire Orange. She has a 318 V-8 (5.3 L), 727 Torqueflite automatic w/ Slap stick on the floor, and she cost a Grand Total of $4,700.00. Superchicken is ALL original, motor, drivetrain, interior, paint, rallye wheels, bumpers, and body, and it has 93,500 Original miles. It is a daily driver, Not A Trailer Queen, and has been in the rain, snow, and sunshine for 37 years. I am attaching photographs that were taken last year, so you can show it as a daily driver. I also belong to a group called, Aspen/Volare Forum, for all F-Body lovers, Check it out, Thank you.
Thanks Franklin! More pics after the jump!
