The Road Runner is currently powered by a 1967 383. The car has its numbers matching 727 3-speed automatic transmission. New spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor, coil, ECM, and battery were purchased to give the vehicle a tune up. The car runs and “yard drives” as per the videos. All 4 tires hold air. The car has an 8 ¾ rear end and a 489 Suregrip unit. The gearing is assumed to be 3.23. Included with the vehicle is a period correct 1972 400 HP motor that is standard bore and is buildable.

The car still retains some of its original “FY1” Lemon Twist paint. The car has some rust in the trunk, lower quarter panels, rear trunk filler, and interior floor pan. Solid front and rear frame rails. Front disc brakes are present. Mostly straight body with some smaller dents/blemishes shown in the pictures. Original fender tag is present and readable. Build sheet has not been found behind rear seats. The car is missing its passenger taillight, passenger rear marker light, and passenger door mirror. The car’s passenger door was replaced at some point. Straight front grille, front bumper, and rear bumper. All 4-wheel moldings are still present. Dual exhausts are retained on the car. Front and rear sway bars. Straight hood with both inserts. Lights and turn signals work properly apart from the missing rear taillight. All glass is in good condition besides the front windshield. Door glass rolls up/down properly on both sides. All keys and locks function properly.

The car features a rally gauge cluster with the 150 MPH speedometer. The gauge cluster is in very nice condition. Speedometer and alternator gauges are working. Steering wheel still retains its Road Runner badge and is in good shape. Column shifter and linkage are working properly. Dash pad has a small number of cracks. Original door panels are present. Plastic panels are present as well but have started to deteriorate over time. All seats (2 front bucket seats, front buddy seat, and rear bench seat) are present in the vehicle. Front seat frames and hardware/tracks are functioning properly. All seatbelts (originally black) are present. The original black carpet can be seen in the pictures. Driver side door displays Chrysler VIN sticker that matches the vehicle’s VIN. Headliner has been removed from the vehicle and inner roof has some surface rust.

The car retains its original “400 4BBL” dual snorkel air cleaner and Chrysler windshield washer reservoir. Two purple, original Road Runner horns are still present but not working properly. Original AC car. AC equipment was previously removed, but OEM unit from a different car is included. Aftermarket clutch fan has been added. Engine bay presents as mostly original besides the engine being swapped at one point and the AC equipment being removed.

What is the serial number/VIN number of the 400 block/motor that you have? I assume it is different than the original that came with the car. I am looking for a particular 1972 HP 400 with the correct serial number. I looked through your nice collection of photos and did not see that one.

Thanks!

Hello! Thanks for looking at my listing. The serial number is: 3698630-400-6 and the date code is 3-30-72.
 
Thanks for that--but is that the number along the oil pan rail, or a different number?
 
That was the casting number.
He's asking about the VIN that is stamped down by the oil pan rail

I do not have any pictures of the VIN number on my phone, and I do not know the VIN number off hand. I can get the VIN number to you if the car does not sell as a bundle. I am looking to include all parts with the car for now.

I can follow up if I decide to sell different parts separately. Thank you.

Price has been lowered to $7,500 FIRM.

Note: Period correct 1972 400 HP motor is *not* included at the $7,500 price.
 
I'm still interested in the VIN number on the oil pan rail of the 1972 400 HP motor if you get a chance. Thanks.
