1973 Roadrunner, H Code 340

1. August, 2018

I’m proud to offer for your consideration this real H Code 340 Plymouth RoadRunner.  This is a personally owned vehicle, not a brokered car like the majority of our auctions.  Actual H Code 340’s don’t come around often, with just 5,384 produced.  The 340 motor came from the 1968/69 time frame, the birth of what many consider one of the finest Chrysler engines ever made.  This 340 is freshly built with X heads, headman 78050 headers, performer RPM manifold, and a new dual feed Demon 750cfm Holley 4160 carb. The rest of the drive train and car is believed to be original. This car runs great and you can be confident taking it anywhere.
Recent upgrades – new transmission pan gasket and filter, and new transmission fill tube seal.  New lower radiator hose and fan belt.  New upper and lower ball joints on front.  Oil just changed with Valvoline VR1 racing oil.  New battery.  The Roadrunner just received a fresh base and clear coat, with code K-6 Autumn bronze poly paint, the correct factory color.  Paint job was just average so had car wet sanded again by a different shop and another coat of clear applied over new reflective white decals.  Front section of right side rear quarter was replaced with new sheet metal.  Another small rust area on the very rear of this quarter down below was also repaired.  This car is free of any visible rust now.   The interior is believed to be all original and is in excellent condition with new foam and upholstery on the front bucket seats.  The headliner is in good shape with just one small tear. All the old exhaust is gone and replaced with Series 40 Flowmasters and Flowmaster 15806 muffler back tailpipes.  Pipe was also replaced between headers and mufflers, all 2.5 inch now.  Factory Pypes 304 stainless steel red slotted round angle cut exhaust tips finish off the exhaust.
The car has an 8 3/4 rear axle with “489” carrier and a 3.55/1 gear ratio.  Cam is a Comp Cams 20-232-4 Hydraulic flat tappet.  Engine has ACC super stock spiral yellow plug wires.  The car has a lot of records from previous owner.  The fender tag is decoded so if you want me to send that to you just drop me a message.
