1968 Plymouth Road Runner Hemi V8 J Code – 1 Of 61

By  | 


By Dave Ashton

Engine: 426 Hemi V8
Transmission: 727 Automatic
8 3/4 rear end
Exterior Color: QQ Electric Blue
Mileage: 54,000
Current Price: $75,100.00


Depending on the condition, you can pick up a 1968 Plymouth Road Runner from around $10k for a completely battered example to over $100k. The top prices are going to be for examples with a Hemi engine and in spotless condition. This one seems to tick the boxes of a truly high-end Road Runner 1 of 169 hard top built that year and 1 of 61 with an automatic transmission.

The 1968 Roadrunner cost $740 more than its base price of $2,800 for the Hemi option. This one unfortunately has a 426 Hemi engine but it’s a ‘period correct’ replacement. The transmission and rear end do seem to be original.

QQ Electric Blue and Black bench seat interior, the car has had a full rotisserie restoration and keeping everything original has redline radials and painted wheels with dog dish caps. Other original points include – Original heads, manifold, valve covers & twin 4BBL carbs. and original factory radio.

We’ve seen this advertised elsewhere for $99,500, but as the engine is a replacement the final price can be more subjective than anything. A numbers matching Hemi Roadrunner will probably be around $120k. If you consider that you can pick up a 383ci. Roadrunner for around $40k in the same condition, is the replacement Hemi worth the extra cost? Possibly, as sourcing and fitting your own date correct 426 Hemi could be $25k+ any day of the week.
