My Next Project (V Code 71 Roadrunner)
#1
Here is the next project that I have lined up to start after I finish my Mustang rebuild. It's a 1971 Roadrunner 440-6 (V Code) with a 4 speed and Air Grabber hood. It's in pretty rough condition with no major rust issues though. Not a Mustang and I am not a Mopar fan but just couldn't resist this one.

That is THE car I want. 71 Roadrunner, GTX or Satellite, I don´t care. But I want that car!!!!

Here are three fine examples:
I almost bought the last one but I did not have the money at the time.

That last one looks almost identical to the '73 Satellite Sebring my cousin had when I was in high school.... and I should've just bought it from her (seeing how she didn't even have a driver's license at the time).

Grrrr!!! Hindsight sucks!

I really like the 70's muscle cars. The ones people don't typically think about. Seems like a pretty awesome car to me, 440-6 with a 4 speed and that hood.

Thx for the comments guys. They only made around 137 of these V code 4 speed cars and I really don't know how many are still around. I really like the way that air grabber raises out of the hood for the ram air affect. I don't think that the Mopar folks kept very good records as far as how each car was optioned like Marti reports so it's going to be difficult to determine if this is a 1/1 car. Going to do a full rotisserie restore on this one and keep it fully original.

Nice find! Do you ever watch the TV show "Graveyard Carz" which specialize in restoring those Mopars?
