The ’74 Road Runner is the last year of the 2nd generation. The engine options on the table this year begin with the base 318 small block, topping off with a 440 CID big block. After ’72 no Road Runner with a 440 would be equipped with a four speed manual, although this tranny was available for engines up to 400 CID. There was one only 1974 Road Runner factory equipped with a 318 block coupled to a 4 speed manual transmission; this unique vehicle was also equipped with a Hurst shifter. The base transmission for the 318 was a three speed standard, although there were only a few were turned out by the factory in ’74. Any 440 engine in ’74 would be factory equipped with the 727 TorqueFlite automatic only.
