2024 Hot August Nights Foundation Auction - two vehicles available


The 2024 Hot August Nights Foundation auction car is a 1974 Plymouth Road Runner. Join the Foundation Saturday, August 10, 2024, at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center as this car is auctioned.

Built by Plymouth between 1968 and 1980, the Road Runner was a mid-sized car focused on performance. In 1968 some muscle cars were moving away from being considered less expensive and fast to increased prices and speeds. Plymouth developed the Road Runner as a lower-priced model to its more upscale GTX. How times change! One thing is for certain – this car is fun to drive!

Details include:

  • 2-door hardtop coupe
  • Upgraded 36o V8, 4 barrel carburetor
  • Equipped with power steering and brakes
  • New BF Goodrich tires and spare
  • Factory air conditioning and AM stereo
