1970 Plymouth Roadrunner 440+6 Hardtop (RM23V0GXXXXXX)

Highlights:

1 of 433 Roadrunner V-code (440+6) hardtops produced for 1970 with the 727 Automatic Transmission.

Has desirable Air Grabber Hood option and hood turn signal lights!

Build date of 7/10/70. which was the second Friday of the final month of production.  Usually production for the model year ended on Friday after the second week of the month (as per Galen Goviers'  production code book).

This is likely one of the last 440 Six Barrel Roadrunner's produced in 1970! Could it be the last one?

Have the original Broadcast Sheet and copy of title from previous owner purchased from in 1995.

Restoration completed about 15 years ago and still looks fantastic. Always garaged and covered. Driven less than 3K miles since completed. Multi time Mopars at Englishtown show winner. including the last time entered in 2013.

Engine and transmission are NOT numbers matching. Engine block is the correct casting. All other body numbers and tags match. Vehicle shows 35. 10 miles. Previous owner stated that the vehicle sat dormant in garage for many years before he purchased it.
