Chassis no. RM21N0G130284. Yellow with a black vinyl roof and matte black hood over black vinyl. 383-cid, 335hp, automatic, drum brakes, store brand radial tires, column shift, bench seat, factory radio.

Evaluation: A base Road Runner in survivor condition. Engine bay is dusty and oxidized, but everything’s there except for the cap for the coolant reservoir. Tired but presentable original chrome. Very old repaint that could almost pass for original if it weren’t for several glaring masking errors. Tires look very old and probably aren’t safe to drive on. Passenger’s-side door sticks way out at the bottom. Dirty underbody but no big rust spots visible. Tired but decently preserved interior. Would make a straightforward project.

Bottom Line: Straightforward but, at this price, somewhat expensive. It’s driver money paid for a car that, at the very least, needs a thorough servicing and a set of tires. As we all know cars like this can wind up needing more things fixed and more bills paid than we think they will.
