RolledRunner: Wrecked and Rolled 1969 Plymouth Road Runner Revival

1969 Plymouth Road Runner

Dalton from Pole Barn Garage and owner of the Worlds Worst 1970 Pontiac GTO known as the Holey Goat has done it again! This time, he’s acquired the Worst 1969 Plymouth Road Runner on Earth.

This derelict Mopar, a factory 383/4-speed car, was perched up on blocks in the salvage yard decades ago after being rolled and wrecked, and later caught fire as someone was attempting to cut the pedals out of the car. This is the RolledRunner!

In the spirit of second chances, Dalton will revive and return this overlooked and unwanted beast to the road.

Road Trip and Retrieval of the RolledRunner

Come along as Dalton, and his son and brother road trip and adventure to Great Bend, Kansas to meet Chad at Nobody Else’s Auto to trade one pile of garbage, a 1960s Plymouth Sport Fury for, well, another pile of garbage — a wrecked, rolled and burned out 1969 Plymouth Road Runner…

Thanks to Buzz at Roadkill Customs for putting Dalton and Chad together and orchestrating the deal. See more of the roughly 1,500 project and parts vehicles Nobody Else’s Auto has to offer:

1969 Plymouth Road Runner Gets a Second Chance

This is Part One in a complete build series on the worst 1969 Plymouth Road Runner in existence and putting it back on the road for the first time in decades. Bring your detective hat and jump in with Dalton as he cleans out the car looking for clues to its story.

With the car cleaned out, he proceeds to beat the everlovin’ tar out of the roof trying to bring it back into shape using unconventional tools including a landscaping timber and his own weight — Classic Dalton ensues…

Picking Up a Disgusting RV Heart Donor Motorhome to Harvest the 440 for the RolledRunner

Dalton drives home a sweet pile of crap motorhome he bought for $1350 — the upside is that it has good running 440 Mopar Power, unlike his previous tries! He and JD derb it around the yard a bit putting the heart donor through its paces and have a little fun with it…

Dalton pulls the low mileage 440 engine out of the disgusting motorhome in preparation for installation into RolledRunner…

Meep Meep!

Dalton finishes the windshield install, plays with electricity, and fixes the giant hole in the firewall…
