Hey guys! This time a 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner 383 4BBL V8 4-speed Coupe. This car is at a very large scale. It is at the same scale as my 1970 Hemi 'Cuda Convertible. That means that this car also is 22 studs wide. I already had this car finished in LDD a long time ago, but I wanted to post it on Mocpages in real bricks. That still didn't happen yet because it has so very many parts; over 2300! So here it is anyway in very nice LDD renders. This, along with my 1970 Hemi 'Cuda Convertible; my best MOCs ever.
About this creation
Some peope may think that your cheating when building in LDD. Is it strong enough when it's built in real? Do all the parts exist in these colors in real? My 1970 Hemi 'Cuda Convertible, which I do have in real bricks, is the strongest Lego car I have ever built. This Roadrunner is constructed the same way, and will be just as strong as well. No illegal building techniques also. As for the parts, they all exist in real. No too fancy new parts in this creation because this is already an older build. I really like the way the renders turned out by the way. It looks very real to me.
The Roadrunner in 1969 came out in three body styles. The 2-door coupe, hardtop, and convertible. The hardtop had the most sales, and the convertible the lowest. The difference with the coupe and hardtop is that the coupe has B pillars. The hardtop doesn't and had a nice big opening when all the windows were rolled down, where the coupe would leave a blind spot. Also the back windows didn't roll down on the coupe, but were popped open. The benefit of the coupe is that it was stronger. I decided to build to coupe, because the B pillars would really help with holding the roof up.
Functions: everything opens, the hood, doors, and trunk (trunk is huge), working steering with steering wheel, suspension and differential at the rear, and the nicest detail: a working V8 Lego Technic engine.
I like this view, you can really see here that this car is at a large scale (Notice the schocks in the back, and the "kind of" leaf springs).
The top view, notice the shape of the back window. Really like the way it turned out.
Let's have a look at the engine...
There it is... the 383 4BBL V8 Roadrunner engine. Rated at 335 HP from the factory. Just look at all those nice colors in there, especially the Roadrunner horn.
The only thing that's missing here are the spark plug wires and heater hoses, so I replaced these with black round 1x1 plates. You can check out the Hemi engine of the 1970 'Cuda Convertible on my homepage to get the idea how it looks like with these parts.
I'm glad with how the vent windows turned out.
The interior; bucket seats, 4-speed hurst shifter, and console. There were no pistol grip shifters in 1969, these were available in 1970.
These doors will open and close very nicely, and are hold with studs when closed.
There is so much space in this trunk, you can see for yourself.
A view at the underside, where you can see some of the details better...
And a nice final picture of the 1970 Hemi 'Cuda Convertible and the 1969 Roadrunner 383 Coupe togheter.
