This 1968 Plymouth Road Runner has obviously seen better days and it’s going to be a brave person who takes on this project to try and bring it back to life. As you can see it looks like it lost a fight with a snow plough or took a few fatal blows from the Transformer’s Optimus Prime, the impacts are that big. Either way, chassis damage means a complete rebuild or usually scrapping.

The irony is that the listing says it was restored 15 years ago and has some reasonable parts. A non-numbers matching 383ci. V8 engine, A833 transmission, 8.75 rear and 3.55 gears and TTI exhaust / Thorley headers. The car was said to be a daily driver before the accident, but all bets are off after damage like this.

It’s not un-salvageable, but you’re looking at a new chassis and most probably interested parties are going to be seeing this as more of a donor vehicle than anything else. It will be interesting to see if the next owner does have the courage to rebuild this wrecked Road Runner, but in reality this is probably going to end up being a donor vehicle. If you do buy this car to restore it completely, please let us know as we would love to see if a vehicle like this can come back from the brink.
