Pontiac Motor Division of General Motors is generally recognized as inventing the American musclecar in 1964, when they dropped a “big” 389-cubic inch V-8 engine into the lightweight, midsized Tempest body and called the result the GTO. It caught on immediately, and within two years most of the other American carmakers had caught up with musclecars of their own.
But within just three years, the typical musclecar was already starting to grow too fat, too flashy, and--most importantly--too expensive for its intended market, the young car buyer. Some genius at Plymouth recognized this fact and for the 1968 model year,
reinvented the musclecar anew, using Pontiac’s original idea of a moderately strong engine in a lightweight midsize body. They put a 335-horsepower, 383-cubic inch engine
in a no-frills, no-chrome Satellite body and called it the Road Runner, licensing
the popular cartoon character from Warner Bothers. It had a horn that went “Meep-meep!” (So did my ‘61 VW Beetle, if you tooted it twice!)
The Road Runner was initially available only in a two-door post coupe body; hardtop and
convertible were added later. The only optional engine was the legendary 426-CI Hemi (a three-two-barrel carbed 440 would be available in 1969).
Paint and interior color choices were also very limited, at least to start with.
