I like the look of the body. The small block, auto and A/C don't do it for me though.

Looks to be a good start for a project. I might have to go take a look at that one, especially if it has it's #'s drive train.

it COULD be a good deal. but you better restore the car out of love and not for $$$.
you will be upside down when you are done with it. 71 and up don't get much love and aren't worth a lot when done.
looking at the ad and reading the description i get the feeling that someone bought it and it's to much $$$ to fix properly so they are getting out while the getting is good. the car needs both 1/4's, roof, both fenders, could be light reflection but the rear bumper looks bent above the rear plate. poor lighting in under hood it will probably need inner fenders. pic of partial drivers seat from passenger side tells me it will probably need new front covers. no pics of dash and no fender tag so does it have rally dash or standard, auto with bench seat probably means on the column shift? rust on the front of the 1/4's probably means there will be a fair amount of rust not seen in the pics.


don't miss read my comments, when done it will be a REALLY sharp car.
just if you are interested in it plan on owning it for a LONG time. because it won't be worth a lot of $$$ when done, even if it has numbers drivetrain and it won't be cheap to fix.

I disagree that 71 and up Roadrunners don't get much love. The 71's especially get plenty of love at the car show's I attend. Not as popular as e-body's, but they certainly hold there own compared to 70 and down B-bodies, and all A-bodies probably because there are usually 10 1969 roadrunners and 10 Darts/Dusters to every 1 71 roadrunner. And the 1971 Roadrunner and GTX can be ordered with all of the best Mother Mopar goodies including pistol grip shifter, rear louvers, rubber bumpers, 15" rallyes, front and rear spoilers, cassette player, power plants ranging from the 340 all the way up to the Hemi, and of course the iconic air grabber hood with the very cool eyes and razor tooth mouth slowly rising up out of the blacl power bulge hood. Reminds me of the face they painted on nose of the P-40 Warhawks.

I agree the 71's get plenty of love. This one looks pretty good too. I would fab up the pieces the quarters need as they look pretty decent and the car looks mostly there. It has fantastic colours and unbeatable graphics as well. I've actually been thinking about this one a bit despite the smallblock and A/C. I wish I could drive to it and have a look, pretty sure I'd buy it.
If I can come out even or even lose a few thousand after doing all the work myself I'm happy. That's what Mopars are about, or used to be anyway. The 68-70 B-bodies don't hold much interest for me anymore. I prefer 63-67 B-bodies and 71 B-bodies these days. that's what makes the hobby fun.

Not surprising at all. That car looks like there could be no way of being that clean if from this town. I was not surprised to see Cal plate on it in photo.

OK why did it take me 3 YEARS to sell this 72 for $35K.
finally sold it 1 1/2 years ago.
rust wise it wasn't much worse than the posted car when i started. i did the car 20+ years ago when NO aftermarket sheetmetal was available so i made my own. same thing with the stripes, i made my own. phoenix graphics made a pencil tracing of my stripes at the mopar nats to make a reproduction set they sell now.
original N96 V21 V25 car. original 15" rally wheel car with RWL tires. had fender tags and build sheet. had 572 hemi in it with built trans. price included the matching #'s engine and trans along with the original air cleaner and stock repo rims with trim rings.
had custom interior with custom made PASSENGER side 6 way seat adjuster.
the front and rear bumper guards weren't listed on the fender tag or build sheet but were on the car from day 1.

I love the 71-72 Roadrunners. However, I would not buy that one because of the customization / wheels / seats / and automatic.

If I was adding a B-body to my garage it would be a 71 Plymouth (RR or GTX). Definitely my favorite.

71's were the sexiest RR/GTX's built.

Exactly!

Would have been worth about the same if you left it original.

OEM repo wheels were included in the sale.
the original black trim panels were also included with the sale.
original restored seat tracks were also included in the sale.
you would have to buy seat covers and the customization is now removed.
from what i have heard, the guy who purchased it removed the hemi & built trans, went thru the motor and re installed the stock drivetrain and sold it to someone in Europe.

look at the triple black hemi GTX in the welborn post. Concours resto 1 of 1 built hemi 4 speed N96 car with full documentation and the car didn't hit $100K.
if that were a e body it would hit $200K+ easy and a 71 B body is almost the same car from the back of the front seats forward.

i will rephrase my they get no love to they are nice cars but they aren't worth much.

when done the original linked car would be hard pressed to sell for over mid to high $20's when done. unless you can do almost all of the work yourself you will be upside down in that car when you are done.

I'm thinking the orange 340 car could be a decent putz around car with some cleanup and a couple grand in misc, and fuel system work. When cars get too pricey, you just can't enjoy them when worrying about it (driving it)all the time. Some of us do not consider "flip" the main reason for purchase.

And the 69 Triple Black A12 Welborn Roadrunner was bid to $56K. Whats your point?
