I've read in various places online that there are production number %'s of total produced concerning paint colors of Roadrunners in 1970. I have an EB5 Blue car now and am thinking of making an offer on an Alpine White EW1 Coupe. Anyone happen to have those percentage numbers? I did see today on one of the Mopar sites that it was said 3.5% of all convertibles were alpine white. Wonder about coupes or hardtops even.

Thanks !

these # are based on the majority of the US spec. cars (38,811 of the 39,110 US spec. '70 Road Runners * 99.2%) total 1970 Road Runner production was 41,484 units

EW1 * RM21 (2.8%) ~414 * RM23 (3.9%) ~911 * RM27 (3.5%) ~23 * total (3.5%) ~1,358 #12 popular color choice

EB5 * RM21 (11.5%) ~1,700 * RM23 (12.1%) ~2,828 * RM27 (15.7%) ~103 * total (11.9%) ~4,619 #1 popular color choice

both are Superbird colors that increased their usage a small amount

info on ~2,673 Road Runners unaccounted for

I thought that number would be fairly low. Over the years I only recall ever seeing a couple of white 70 Roadrunners at best. This car I considered buying over 10 years ago but passed on it. A local guy picked it up.

I made this a few years ago & I'm sure it is NOT perfect and the numbers represent about 79% of '70 musclecar production - I only have the hi-impact numbers from the A-bodies

it definitely demonstrates FC7 "plum crazy" was KING on a musclecar at Dodge

& EB5 "blue fire metallic" was the color for a Plymouth GTX or Road Runner

In about 1985-1986, I saw a white 1970 Road Runner convertible at the Street Machine Nationals in DuQuoin, IL. It was a 383 auto car with power windows & white interior. It had a 6-71 blower on a 440 sticking out of the hood. Nice car. Anyone here know what ever happened to that car?
