Car: Plymouth Hemi Roadrunner
What makes it special: The second generation Plymouth Roadrunner coupe's bodywork was completely changed to a more rounded "fuselage" design in keeping with then-current Chrysler styling trends, including a steeply raked windshield, hidden cowl, and deeply inset grille and headlights. The convertible model was canceled. 1971 was a high-water year for ride and handling for the Roadrunner. The overall length was increased, but the wheelbase was shortened an inch. The 440+6 and 426 Hemi V8's were available, but this would be the last year for them. Just 55 426 Hemi equipped Roadrunner's were made for 1971, and few originals have survived.
