The First Generation Road Runner was a limited-production muscle car from Plymouth, a division of the Chrysler Corporation and was built from 1968 through 1970.
Paying $50,000 to Warner Brothers to use the name and likeness of their Road Runner cartoon character (as well as a “beep-beep” horn), and using the Chrysler B platform as a base (the same as the Belvedere, Satellite, and GTX), Plymouth set out to build a back-to-basics muscle car. Everything essential to performance and handling was beefed-up and improved; everything nonessential was left out.
The Road Runner received fresh new front and rear styling for 1970. The “Six Pack” hood was dropped, but all Road Runners were now available with an optional Air Grabber Hood. This consisted of a under the dash switch which would open a power operated trap door on the hood, revealing a shark cartoon with the words “Air Grabber.”
