History of the 1971-1974 Plymouth Road Runner
Plymouth dropped its Belvedere after 1970. The next-generation Road Runner became a Satellite variation rolling on a 115-inch wheelbase, down a click compared to the original rendition. Also new in 1971 was clean, curvy “fuselage styling,” a fresh look loved by most critics. A 300-horse 383 big-block was standard for the 1971 Road Runner; the 340 small-block, 440 Six Barrel and 426 Hemi were optional, the latter two for the last time.
A 255-horsepower 400-cid V8, created by boring out the good ol’ 383 was also available for the 1972 Road Runner, along with the still-hot 340 and 440 big-block. Adding the optional 440 also meant special “GTX” identification came along as part of the deal and remained so up through 1974, the last year for Plymouth’s “real” Road Runner. The breed did stick around for one final appearance in 1975, but it just wasn’t the same in its Fury-based form.
