68 Road Runner restoration

The newest toy to the collection

About this Mopar:

1968 Plymouth Road Runner Sunfire yellow, black vinyl top , silver and black interior. Was originally an automatic car but someone converted it to a 4 speed. I have replaced the trunk pan and have repaired the inner and outer wheelhouses. I am currently working on the quarter skin installations. Hope y’all enjoy the pictures. 19948152-B6CF-4486-9A18-A83DDE836C0B.jpegA09AA28B-4CBD-4FEE-89B0-B4980809DCFD.jpeg60815C19-20C2-4F46-B35D-34694D1780DF.jpeg1D90064F-B047-4D2C-983D-B8FA673F27E6.jpeg59148EB4-2955-4111-B67E-49052D79D131.jpeg2E26CBEE-A379-47DE-BFBC-83A279514040.jpeg88214E6A-60BD-40AF-8ECC-518426B0B9B2.jpegEEEA4122-BDE5-430D-83A8-EE1C3D3FCACC.jpeg021D18FA-F8C2-4D5D-949B-958BB5A51E83.jpeg82670F3A-C923-4887-8D3E-9BB49B6FB8E0.jpeg78A8DA77-8CBF-4E8B-9230-AC0BF33AF31D.jpeg14B42B6D-EC7E-4F80-B170-03CEB18E6964.jpegThanks.

Latest updates

So after a few months,I have finally got to work on the Road Runner. Here’s a few pictures. Started to do bodywork on the passenger door and hopefully finished up the rear quarters where I welded the skins on. Applied the Eastwood opti flow roll on epoxy primer. I recommend it if you have no way to spray primer on. Thanks for looking.

Coming along nicely! Keep it up! ruffcut
Here’s some pictures of the progress on the road runner. Things will probably slow down for a while as I recently lost my job. But I will continue with the restoration as best as possible. Got some more yellow paint on and replaced the 22in. Radiator support with one for a 26 in radiator. Also primed the engine compartment and drivers side quarter panel with Eastwood,s roll on epoxy primer. It works pretty good. It’s a lot thinner than I expected . Thanks for looking . Have a great 4 th of July

Nice work !


Most people don't really know what it takes to restore these car's. I never have added up what I spent on restoring my bird. Really don't care just get in it and drive it. Wish you the best of luck with the build. What motor are you running. Put the four speed back in my car that is what it came with. Love shifting gears. Thanks for the pic's and the insight on the build. :thumbsup:

I plan on a 496 striker with the FiTech 6 pack fuel injection. 3:23 sure grip,vintage air,power steering and 4 wheel disc brakes. I hope that when it’s done myself and my best friend of 50 years will take it on the power tour
Your workmanship is very impressive. Look forward to seeing this one through to the finish. Best wishes!
Its coming along. going to spray lizard skin sound control inside the car tomorrow. I will post some pictures soon. also have been welding up numerous. holes in the firewall. thanks for checking up on the project.
The quarter skins I got from Year One come up over the top.
Got the last two they had "scratch and dent" deal.
First skins I've ever done. Was surprised that they come up over the top of the panel.
That's were I'm making the seam, on top.
Is that something people do?
Haven't seen any before.
They also go around the door jam and down to the pinch weld on the rocker.
But the tail light end will have to be cut and modified.
