Scanning the huge number of recent Cohort postings (do check them out) for Mopars soon turned up this very uncommon 1975 Road Runner, the last of the B-Body beep-beepers, and posted by MoparMatt. It was a package available on the newly-styled B-Bodies for 1975, now called Fury, and was a one-year wonder, as in 1976 the RR was based on the new Volare. The base engine was the two-barrel 318, but a four-barrel 360 with 220 hp as well as the 400 packing 230 hp were available. There was talk of a 440 version, but that’s all it was, as the 440 was reserved for police duty only on the Fury. Nevertheless, for 1975, the RR was a pretty brisk car; C/D got a 400 inch version to 60 in 8.1 seconds, and the quarter in the mid-16 second range. Now about that interior:
What more can I add to that? Colorful! And don’t forget to specify the living grass carpet; Chrysler’s notoriety for leaks meant sure it would thrive with little additional watering.
Given how few of these ’75 Road Runners were made, maybe my headline is off-base. Is there a thriving little cottage industry in turning ’75 Fury coupes in to Road Runners?
