Rewind: 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner

(Editor’s note: Vintage television commercials can be as classic as the cars they promoted back in the day. This is one in an ongoing series of such vintage car commercials we’ve found on YouTube.)

The Plymouth Roadrunner was adorned with logos and badges featuring the Roadrunner cartoon character, and in 1969 Plymouth aired a commercial depicting the iconic character and Wiley Coyote endless efforts to catch the bird.

Too bad he doesn’t know the only place to catch a roadrunner was at the Plymouth dealer.

The new, low-priced, high-performance car came as a convertible, hard top, or as the original two-door coupe for 1969.
