    Hello, I am Jimmy from NE PA. I have a 1970 blue Road Runner. It was a recent purchase. It is special to me because I always wanted a Hemi car. It has a 1970 426 supposedly from a Daytona. I have to look up the numbers still. It was born with a 383. To me this was a more affordable way to get a Hemi car. It is a N96 car and has a 727 trans. The engine is 10:1 comp with solid lifters. There is 200 miles on the rebuilt engine and the 727 was just rebuilt. It was gone over good but still retains many original parts. I will try to post pix.

      Welcome. The RR looks great! I had one back in the mid-70's, same color, non-hemi.
      I like yours better.
