1970 Plymouth Road Runner Description:

This rare 1970 Plymouth Road Runner (chassis RM23N0A142952) is a worthy restoration candidate featuring its numbers matching 383 and factory 4-speed drivetrain. Though no claims of the car being complete are conveyed, it appears that mostly everything is accounted for aside from the rear seat, air cleaner, outside trim and more.

A cool feature of the car is its Air Grabber hood (N96 option). Although most everything inside is fairly complete, aside from carpet, radio, etc. the cabin is still quite a mess.

The fender tag is a bit crispy but it is still legible for the most part, though please note that the build sheet is not found in the car. Paint looks like it could be the original lemon twist finish, and according to coded info, the car was optioned with a stripe package. Here’s a handy VIN decoder along with a fender tag decoding tool and a color chart.

The car sat on the side of a house for decades in South Carolina. Usual rust around rear window and bottoms of both quarters but surprisingly everything else is pretty solid

The serial numbers are present on the block and 4-speed transmission, both of which appear to be original to the car.

Car just had several thousand dollars worth of service work to get the car running and driving again after almost 40 years of being off the road. It will run & drive around a parking lot and onto a trailer. It is NOT road-worthy.

$7,000 in recent work completed. Inquire for detailed list.

Stephen Becker personally works side by side with the Shelby American Automobile Club registrars and have supported their efforts to keep Carroll Shelby’s automobiles and contribution to the automotive industry alive.


Stephen Becker is one of the most renowned Shelby authorities in the world, announced the introduction of a new certified appraisal program for 1960s Shelby Cobras, GT350s and GT500s. Previously available only to a select group of companies and celebrities, SGB’s invaluable expertise is now available to individuals contemplating the sale or purchase of a vintage Shelby car.


“For years, MOPAR, Corvette and Ford collectors have had access to detailed appraisals from experts in those cars, but enthusiasts have not been able to tap a form program when considering the purchase or sale of a Shelby,” said Becker. “With the expertise, records and access to details of Cobras, GT500s and GT350s available through me, collectors can now have the knowledge they need when making a decision on a Shelby they want to purchase or sell.”

Becker personally has performed evaluations for years and attended key collector car auctions for a small group of corporate clients like insurance companies and manufacturers. In late 2009, Stephen Becker provided an appraisal of 75 cars in the corporate and museum collection of Shelby American. The appraisals were done for Shelby’s insurance company, which requested current values of the extensive collection of significant cars. Other high profile corporate and celebrity clients have included the famous Shelby Parts & Restorations company, as well as leaders in the music and entertainment industry.


“Shelby cars are usually considered blue chip collectibles, but each must be carefully inspected and appraised to understand the true value,” noted Becker. “Not only is it important to ensure a car is a genuine Shelby, it’s critical to understand its history. The value difference between a survivor car with great provenance and a Shelby ‘rebuilt’ from a few major components left over from a wreck can be hundreds of thousands of dollars.”


Stephen’s knowledge and extensive library led to the creation of the Becker Certified Shelby Certification program. A proprietary 25 point inspection and exhaustive research provides the most thorough report on the market for genuine Shelby vehicles.


Over the past decade, Stephen Becker has been retained by key automotive groups, collectors and industry leaders to authenticate and value Shelby vehicles. This led to the creation of a program for individual collectors and enthusiasts. When completed, a client received a detailed report with a history of the vehicle, if available, and documentation to validate the value.


Since 1977, Stephen Becker has been regarded as a leading authority on 1960s era Shelby Cobras, GT350s and GT500s. The company’s expertise and in-depth knowledge have been tapped by clients to purchase, consign and restore original Shelby’s. SGB has represented clients around the world on stage when their Shelby’s crossed the block.


Founder Stephen Becker was one of the youngest people to ever be selected as a finalist for the Ernst & Young/Inc. Magazine “Entrepreneur of the Year” in the early 1990s.
