  History of the Plymouth Road Runner and Dodge Super Bee
The Plymouth Road Runner was still well-endowed with power, but the in 1973, the shape of things to come appeared: the mild-mannered but indestructible 318, with 170 hp, was the standard base engine, make standard Road Runners more cosmetic packages than moonshine delivery vehicles.
In 1976, Plymouth, trying to keep the name alive, stuck it onto the new Volare, which was designed to replace the reliable, sturdy, light, economical, and very popular Valiant.
The Road Runner had bigger engines than the Valiant; instead of starting at the 225 Slant Six and ending at the 318, it started with the 318 and ended with the 360 (both with two barrel carbs).
