Other good stuff about this Mod Top Road Runner from the Ebay page on which it was for sale in March 09:
"Well where do I start this is just a RARE car that back when we could order the car the way we want...like ordering a hamburger from Burger King. The original owner was determined to order the car his way. It started with a Road Runner Post with a extremely rare Mod Top roof. Then the next thing was again the extremely Rare Factory Sunroof that has been serviced and works perfect like it was new. The car is F5 Lime Light Metallic with Black interior. The interior has been recovered with Legendary Auto Interiors. The complete interior has be restored to factory specifications. The Rare Mod Top was purchased from a Chrysler NOS part retailer and the top itself was $3,000.00 for that Leprechaun. The paint still is original with about 80% of it as a survivor. The car itself has had a full restoration with the execption of the paint...they are only original once. The full suspension was completly rebuilt with the front disc brakes as well . The torsion bars are also new and HEMI rated. The rear suspension was also completly new as well. Okay, now the motor it is a unstamped warrenty block dated 1971 and has been bored 10 over with the ability to run pump gas. The Runner has only less than a 100 miles from completion. The 440 has a factory six pack with an original A12 air Cleaner with the original Fram filter. The Hood is an original A12 hood that also has been restored to factory specs. I always wanted to have an A12 car an figured that this was a great opportunity to do with this Rare Road Runner. All hoses are dated coded as the A12, Mopar Correct Battery and the rare HEMI Radiator 054.The car is listed on the Mod Top Regestry site as being the only one like it made. This is a rust free car that is Los Angeles built and has no RUST (desert car).More from Chris when I inquired about the oddity of having a Dodge (V1H) Mod Top on a Plymouth (they had different floral patterns): "Its a special ordered car by the original owner...V1H is the green top and it was a V08 EDIT WAVIER car to have the Dodge top on a Plymouth. Rare and just plain cool."
Note about this Mod Top: after publishing information about this car to the web, several people emailed me questioning the validity of this car, specifically the Dodge material vinyl top on a Plymouth and it being a sunroof car. There isn't really a good way to verify or validate any of these claims, so this car remains in the registry. I did ask for a better picture of the broadcast sheet and fender tag, but did not receive a reply. A quick search on the internet for " Chris Houg mopar " (the person who was selling this car on Ebay) indicates several allegations against him for being fraudulent with some transactions. Thus, suspicion about the validity of this car is raised.
