Don Grotheer is from Cushing, Oklahoma. He came to the attention of Mopar in the early 60s after considerable success in AHRA and NHRA® racing. Plymouth provided factory support to Don in late 1965 on his HEMI powered Plymouths. By 1969, Plymouth needed another star driver to meet the increasing demand for Performance Clinics across the US. Don had been setting NHRA® SS/B and SS/BA records making him the perfect choice as their next clinic instructor. From 1969 to 1971, Don would host about 75 clinics per year. Plymouth provided him a new 440+6 1969.5 Road Runner to show at the clinics. Don’s Road Runner appeared in many books and magazines and still makes appearances at car shows today. Auto World presents this detailed replica of his famous race car as it was shown by Don Grotheer back in 1969.
