1969 Sky Blue Plymouth Roadrunner

Background : I live in Redding Ca. about 180 miles north of Sacramento....I have been working on getting my '69 Roadrunner upgraded and updated to go doorslammer racing again.....I've been focused on the Nostalgia Dragster scene for the past 15 years and my poor RR has been up on jackstands the whole time.....

I've freshened the motor ...new 590 lift Purple shaft cam...new Isky valve train...new Barry Grant fuel system (Race Demon 820/Fuel Pump/Reg)....New digital 6 MSD with billet distributor...new Ron Mancini 727 (Griner TB valve body) 8" Turbo Action converter....Took out the SS leaf springs and am installing Cal Tracs with the mono-leafs and calvert shocks...Welded in Mancini's sub-frame connectors....Took out the Powr Lok pumpkin out of the Dana 60 and went to a Strange spool with Richmond 4.56 gears.....Had Mark Williams build a new 4" alum. driveshaft with 1350 spicer u-joints and their chromemoly pinion/trans yokes....took off the old HEAVY drum brakes and put new Wilwood Dynalite disc brakes all around.....New Griffen Alum radiator.....No money for paint, so she stays her old blue color for awhile...that's the color everyone is used to seeing her anyway....

My goal for this project is to run the car in the high 10 second area...Best ET historically for this car is 11.64 / 116 miles per hour...That was in 1994....

I'm hoping to be test firing the engine by the end of the month and get her on the track shortly after.... I'll be racing the NHRA Heritage Series with the dragster and in between those races I'll be tuning the Roadrunner at our local track (Redding Dragstrip)...Hope to run a few Mopar races and some select nostalgia hot rod events.....
