Though a four-speed manual transmission was standard RR equipment, the column shifter and automatic-only wide-pad brake pedal show the original buyer paid an extra $39.30 for the heavy-duty TorqueFlite automatic. Remnants of underdash ducting and the A/C-specific firewall stamping tell us this one was also ordered with air conditioning. A $357.65 option, A/C added more than 10 percent to the Road Runner coupe's $3,077 base price. For comparison, the base prices of the Road Runner RM23 hardtop (no pillar) and new-for-'69 RM27 convertible were $3,215 and $3,456, respectively. Street Hemi buyers coughed up a hefty $813.45 for the security of doomsday power.
