1970 440+6 Auto Road Runner
Whoever said performance has to be flashy
better listen up. It has always been the consensus
that enhancing performance of a vehicle means
losing the factory appearance. Big hoodscoops,
headers and carburators from a custom shop
definitely make power, but in the realm of the
Factory Appearing Racing (SuperCar ShootOut),
all that stuff is forbidden.
Normally at racing events, you see slicks,
disguised slicks with a groove or two in them
planting the power to the track. In Factory Appearing
Racing (SuperCar ShootOut),
you must run the
stock tire that rolled off the show room floor.
Some of the Sneaky Specs that this car has are:
Racing Battery Inside Factory-Style Battery Case,
318 Torsion Bars, Race shocks Painted Factory Stock,
Hidden Electronic Ignition, Stamped Steel Wheels....
In Factory Appearing Racing (SuperCar ShootOut)
you don’t want to give away all your secrets.
After attending the 2004 Mopar Nationals and watching
this Road Runner go
down the track, I knew I had to own it.
This RoadRunner is equipped with a 440+6BBL,
a 727 Torque Flight Tranny and an 8 3/4 Rear End.
Factory Color is FK5 Burnt Orange Metallic, w/ White
Vinyl Top & White Bucket Seat Interior. Other
options include an N96 Air Grabber Hood, Chrome
Exhaust Extensions, Reflective White Tail Stripe.
