Car History

The Plymouth Satellite and Road Runner were mid-size cars with a focus on performance built by Plymouth in the United States between 1968 and 1980. By 1968, some of the original muscle cars were moving away from their roots as relatively inexpensive fast cars as they gained features and increased in price.

The Road Runner was based on the Chrysler B platform, the same as the Belvedere and Satellite, as a back-to-basics mid-size performance car.

Plymouth developed the Road Runner to market a lower priced, basic trim model to its upscale GTX. They paid $50,000 to Warner Bros.-Seven Arts to use the Road Runner name and likeness from their Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner cartoons (as well as a "beep, beep" horn, which Plymouth paid $10,000 to develop).

What we have here at Adventure Classic for sale is a 1970 Plymouth Satellite that has been modified into a Roadrunner with a lot of performance parts.

Engine & Drivetrain

The heart of this car is the engine, and they have swapped in a 440 cubic inch big block Plymouth with around 500 horsepower that has a roller performance cam and roller rocker arms, Weiand Tunnel Ram manifold, performance exhaust headers and duals, two-four barrel Edelbrock carbs and plumbing, Mopar Valve covers, Mr. Gasket Blower Scoop air cleaner that opens with the throttle to let in the air, performance ignition and spark plug wires and more all sitting in a clean and detailed engine compartment.

It feeds the power back to the H.D.Torqe-Flite Transmission via a Big Dog 4200 Stall Speed converter, before it sends it to the tires from the 8 3/4 H.D. Mopar rear end.

Interior

The two-tone Black and Blue interior has been redone. It has twin bucket seats with matching door panels and headliner, matching dash with both factory in the dash and high-performance accessory gauges under the dash, stereo radio system, leather sport steering wheel, nice carpet and floor mats, high-performance accessory chrome sport shifter, seatbelts, and more.

Exterior

The 1970 model year brought new front and rear end looks to the one we have with the grille, hood, front fenders, quarter panels, and even non-functional scoops in the rear quarters being different than the previous years.

Ours is painted in an eye-catching shade of blue with a huge amount of metal flake paint with gold colored flames starching back from the front to midway of the doors. It is an extremely high-end paint job that pictures do not do it justice.

It rides super on the polished custom mag wheels and black wall performance tires.

Conclusion

The 1970 Plymouth Satellite we have here at Adventure Classic for sale has been modified to be even more fun and powerful than its counterpart, the 1970 Roadrunner. If you want to be seen and heard on the street, this car will do it for you, and it can back up the talk with that motor.
