Nice video, GREAT car. An apex predator of the muscle car era. A few items: the ‘69 1/2 440 6V had 10 1/2 compression, and no electronic ignition - a dual point Prestolite distributor was spark. 1969 was the last year for all-mechanical electronics. 1970 went to electronic voltage regulators, and a few years later electronic ignition.
What exhaust is on it
Only 120 mph speedo? I thought the speedo went to 150 mph
Robert LaPointe - not w/ a 4:10 gear in back. These were meant to go 0-110mph faster than the guy next to you.
Brother had a 69 road runner 383 Magnum equipped. He torn the clutch out etc. So he sold it for little of nothing. Good thing he is internet illiterate. He would kick his own arse if he knew what it IS worth now. Kicking my own arse. Had a 68 GTO. ex wife exchanged it for little of nothing to get the meager money for a down payment on a new car. Sure miss that car.should have got rid if her and went and took my car back.
Better put McLeod in that thing before you sell it :)))
My all time favorite muscle cars. Both this and the A12 Super Bee 440 Six Pack. Pretty much just as quick as a 426 Hemi Roadrunner but alot cheaper and the 440 has much better street manners than the Hemi
Definitely my favorite Mopar muscle car that wasn't 426 Hemi powered
It's like the original demon
Great video and great car! My question is: what would someone do back then to modify the car even further? It already has all those great options from the factory but what else was available back then? Cams, headers, timing etc?
Really appreciate your videos Kev!
Thank you so much!
Your channel makes me feel like life is worth living if this world has cars like this .Very grateful
my aunt had a used 383 roadrunner back in the early 80s and man that damned thing had power. roadrunners run great and sound even better, just leave a lot to be desired in the looks dept.
I love this CAR!
That's my Dream Car , I had seen one new at Seaway Chrysler Plymouth in Duluth Mn. in 1969 it was sitting on the Showroom Floor , it was Go Banana (yellow) with black interior and Vinyl Top I was 12 years old at the time , but I feel in Love with the Big yellow Bird..
I FOUND THE BEST CHANNEL ON TVclip
Thank you for the kind words!
My favorite Classic Mopar! A-12 Road Runner will be in my garage one day! Love the video!
Hmmm...awesome rig, not to be picky but no pistol grip on the stick?
Audie Conrad - not in 1969... 1970 was pistol grip.
Can you run that in the rain with that type of hood scoop?
A great street fighter bad a$$ car if ever there was one. Slicks and factory Super stock rear springs and instantly way down in 12's.
Hi Kevin, thank you so much for continuing to feature the A12 Road Runner. Its such an iconic, rare, special car! I own a very correct tribute car.
One of Dodge's best.
You mean Plymouth? Dodge made a 440 Six Pack Super Bee in 69 though. Basically the same exact car
Absolute dream machine
The Brothers Collection is amazing@3:30 that poor clutch
Excellent! The only thing you forgot to do was beep the horn ("meep meep") :-). Love that car.
Love the A12 cars, but that one smokes the clutch.
3:31 pause is that the clunch burnin up or an exaust leak! Cus that smoke aint comein from the tires!
I'm not getting enough big blocks and Vitamin C in my life, great video guys
Zero thumbs down on this one, and rightly so! Regardless of your brand loyalty, as muscle car fans we should all appreciate purpose-built beauties like this offering from Mopar! You guys do an excellent job with the videos, but I miss seeing the '70 T/A on the intro, but I'm a little biased. :)Please keep them coming!
that engine looks a little darker than Mopar Orange I think they used another shade? looks like chevy Orange>?
Ieuwhh Chevy 🙄
Now ya see?.... Thats a REAL burnout. Not the BS stand on the brake burnouts millennials do today.
My old man had one of these but his was the GTX version. His best 1/4 mile was 11.11 126mph on full slick. Stock it ran like 13’s if you where lucky. Basically it smoked the factory tires as soon as you touched the gas but man them Mohok slicks made her hook and book. Amazing what just proper traction out of the hole could do.
From the smoke coming out of the exhaust and breather tube, I would say it still needs a little restoration!
Roasting the front tires off that 4X4
Tommy Dennis clutch smoking. Probably had something on it or just slipping from the 500ft lbs of torque!
Lol saw that also........I had a chance back in mid 90s to buy a clone ,which is fine don't have time or worries of a real one.
I bought one of those used. It was a '70 model and had big 383 emblems on the scoop. It had a monster holly 4 barrel on it, and it became obvious that is wasn't a 383, when it started taking the 440's. We checked the VIN, nd it was a 440-6 pack. Someone had obviously removed the 6 pack. I couldn't wait to find a 6 pack to run. When I did, it took them too. I often wondered why someone would trade off such a good car.
grumpy old fart sleeper.
Wow !!!! You actually have room to get your hands around the engine, to work on it. Even with a monster sized Engine. Cars these days don't have enough room for a fat ant to get through.
grumpy old fart some do but not many. We worked on a late model the other day and we stood inside the engine bay under the hood to work on it.
would that Vancouver happen to be in Canada?
oopps this is not a stock car Chrysler did not make Roadrunner 440 that yearjust the same good mod job fun to watchOh i worked for Chrysler at that time there was a car with that package itwas not the Road runner
Clay Coates yup they did
Here is what i remember sitting at my desk when i was at Chryslerdoing costumer warrant work i looked up what it would taketo build such a car the information i had at the time where were parts available for a car like this checking Wikipedia and it clearlyshows that there was a car built like this i knew that there wereHemi s Roadrunners available i was driving one a co. car thank you oh the problem here i was told at the time was the fees from Warner Brothers is thr reason they did not Build such a car so i think the GTX would probably cost less thank you
They absolutely did make a 69 1/2 440 RoadRunner. In 68 you could only get the 383 or a 426 Hemi, but in 69 they also offered the 440. I was there, I had a 68 RoadRunner that I ordered in 68, and was excited to see they upped their game in 69. My friend had a 69 Dodge SuperBee 440 Six Pack that he got after trading in his 68 Chev Biscayne 427 to get the SuperBee 440 SixPack.
Are you sure ? :-)sixpacksixbbl.homestead.com/
The only Six-pack setup that I have had was on a '68 Charger R/T 440 (as 6 brl was not an available option until '69), and 4-speed pistol grip. I also had a '70 Roadrunner that was a 383 with an auto that was not near as much fun, but was still an awesome Mopar.
No Dodge used the name Six-Pack for its 6 barrel carb, and Plymouths 3x2 was simply revered to as its 6brl. So for example Roadrunner used the 440-6brl callout badging on its hood, and Dodge used the name Six-pack for their three two barrel carb. We don't use the word duces in Mopar terminology, that's a GM thing. But when it comes right down to it the damn carbs have 6 barrels, whatever the hell you want to call it lol.
6 barrel is not the same thing. This was 3 duces equaling 6 barrels not just one 6 barrel.
another cool vid....is it just me, or does the pass side door seem just a little off on the color????
What a machine that's one I'd love to own.
Hell ya brother
3:25 sounds exactly like the 68 charger in Bullitt when the old guy starts to run from McQueen
380banshee it sounds just like this tvclip.biz/video/31JgMAHVeg0/video.html
Steve should've picked a roadrunner to chase that charger, lol!!
Useful Entertainment Hahahaha!!! Hells Yeah Brother! It sounds Exactly like it!!! I can't imagine How it would but it sure does, Hahahaha! Well I'll be! I Bet this RR watched the Bullitt Chase earlier that morning before the test run... Hahahaha!
Useful Entertainment almost same exact engine it should sound very similar.
Gorgeous car.. Mopar
'The Brothers' are the Fertitta Brothers right?
Great vid as usual, Kevin!!Why have you guys never done a '66 or '67 Chevelle vid???
I really enjoy your videos! Thanks for being there!
Gorgeous car love it
69 Road Runner hell yeah
This is the third time y'all have featured this car. Y'all have done the challenger about 17 times. Are y'all running out of ideas or cars? That being said, I still enjoy it.
Darrell Kidd I know they different indivdual cars, but they're the same model
I think this is the third time they have done a 69 1/2 A12 Road Runner, but they were all different cars (red, green, and now, orange). I'm not sure they will ever run out of cars LOL (sure hope not).
was that a head gasket or a collecter gasket that blew during the burnout on the right side engine bank?so much easier doing burnouts with automatics or line locks huh?thanks again
Timothy Cote if it was, boy that must've been stinky,ugh,that,burning brakes and roasted diff lube,the worst vehicular stinks going!
that was a clutch burnout
Loved the pacing shots. They were very smooth! Super cool Road Runner!
A12 - a mighty fine package. I like the new way (?) of presenting the subject car. Not just a short, back and forth, drive by, but also continuous view for some distance.
Awesome car and show. Thumbs up to the host.keep it up Sir!
Nice, but what can you tell us about the clutch? New clutch up on smoke, should be the title.
