Plymouth Rapid Transit concept cars bring six figures each


News / Tuesday, May 21st, 2019

A little over a month ago we told you about a group of factory-adapted Plymouth muscle cars that were used on the Plymouth Rapid Transit show circuit. It was a promotional tour that showed how you could change a Plymouth at the time. The cars were fantastic periods that resembled classic Hot Wheels cars. The cars & # 39; s have now crossed the auction block and all four we told you about six-part winning bids.

The most expensive of the four was a 1970 Plymouth Road Runner, pictured above, which sold for $ 341,000. It contained a three-tone paint system, modified rectangular headlamps, full-width rear light, one piece, a cast-in rear wing, magnetic slots, and a large Road Runner emblem on the side. Under the hood was a 426-cubic inch Hemi V8 with automatic transmission.

After the 1970 Road Runner was a 1970 Plymouth Duster that went for $ 264,000. It had bright green paint, the second color scheme from Plymouth, with matching flower floor mats. The exterior also had functional brake lines, rectangular exhausts and a bumperless tail. It is powered by a V8 of 340 cubic inches with a manual four-speed gearbox.

The third most expensive was a redeveloped Road Runner from 1971 for $ 236,500. It had a fully custom-made nose without a bumper and unique headlamp covers, a bright orange paint job with white stripes, sunken spoons, Road Runner cartoon-shaped marker lights and red, yellow and green tail lights. This Road Runner has a 383-cubic-inch V8 with an automatic transmission.

At the back came a Dodge Dart Swinger from 1969 with a sale price of $ 110,000. The lower price may be partly because it was technically not a Rapid Transit car, but it was a Dodge factory use that was on the stand at the Chicago Auto Show in 1969. It features a soft paint rack, but has unique accents such as the rectangular headlamps, built-in fog lamps, integrated door handles and that huge (and unfortunately fake) hood. However, we would not remove that scoop, since Dodge mentioned it there himself. Like the Duster, it had a 340-cubic-inch V8 and a manual four-speed gearbox.
