I got this 69 Roadrunner about three months ago. It had been sitting for about five years. Originally a 383 4 speed, now has a (slow) 440, 8 3/4" 3.23 diff and still has the 4 speed. Thanks for letting me join!

Welcome from Alabama, looks to be a solid car. Slow can be fixed.

Looks like a keeper. Slow? I'm guessing lower performance 440? (later year build) with those 3.23s will make it sluggish stop light to stop light. I'm guessing decent highway performance?

Yeah, its ok on the highway, pretty unimpressive stoplight to stoplight. My Mopar pals tell me it's a 67 block with 906 heads, it's for sure not a high performance engine. Holley 750 with cast iron intake and exhaust manifold.
