Introducing #ProjectBeepBeep – Code H 1968 Road Runner

I’d like you to take a look at one of my constant readers classic muscle car.

First let me say that Bill has been an a long quest to find a car to replace this car:

 

Back in the day.

It was a long search with lots of phone calls with many car owners.  Some of the stories of his search would make a great post, but for now let’s get to his new find, which if you can’t tell in video below, he’s pretty happy about this rare color code car.

His new pride and joy is a H code, 1968 Road Runner and it breaks down like this:

R – Plymouth Belvedere, Satellite (“B” body)
M – Medium price group
23 – 2 door hardtop
H – 383 1-4BBL 8 Cylinder “B” engine (High Performance)
G – St. Louis, Missouri – birth place

It is for the most part as it came from the factory.  But I’m going to let Bill cover all the details with you.  Here is his first video.

Here a few pics of Bill’s Road Runner he sent when he was looking it over.

Bill will be providing updates on the restoration and other task as he works on this beautiful Mopar (makes me miss my Dodge Dart).

So keep checking for more on #ProjectBeepBeep.

Thanks for reading
