Here's a 1968 Plymouth GTX that's factory-correct inside and out, and even has it original 440 big block under the hood. Oh yes, this low-numbers Mopar is just as unique and special as you think. Just check out the interior!
The GTX was the gentleman's muscle car. Many people were not willing to go to the expense of premium rapid transit, and instead opted for its Road Runner sibling. Today that makes the GTX one of the most respected and rare Mopars around. So you are already going to gain gawkers from far across the car show field just because of the GTX name. And this one is ready for added attention thanks to quality uniform body gaps and the deep green with a nice shine. And speaking of shine, they invested in mirror-like bumpers to contrast the dark paint nicely. The half-chrome headlights and Cragar SS wheels are 1960s-style upgrades that go well with it, too. As people get closer, they'll recognize the subtle touches that make the GTX a premium machine. After all, there's just something upper class about like the black vinyl roof with coordinating dual side stripes that subtly stand out from the deep green color.
The sea of green continues inside with a factory-correct two tone that is one of the most amazing patterns you will ever see. The appearance and the level of restoration/preservation will win awards on its own. Almost everything you can see or touch feels like it's 1968 all over again, including the seat covers, door panels, and carpets. There's hints of wood paneling on the doors and dashboard, which makes this feel like driving a mean green forest. There are all the right extras, like the factory-correct console, power steering, and even the AM radio is still there for display. In fact, the only pieces that doesn't look stock is the column-mounted AutoMeter AutoGage tach. It's larger that the factory one, and we think you'll find that quite handy.
Power comes from the biggest engine in Chrysler's stable, the awesome 440 cubic-inch big block. The V8 is the numbers-matching unit to this GTX, which should make you weak in the knees thinking about the rarity. It looks very business-like under the hood, with Chrysler's blue paint on the block and that big Magnum air cleaner up top (which hides an upgraded Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor.) This one shows signs of the kind of proper maintenance worthy of a valuable muscle car, and the way it fires up readily reaffirms the feeling of proper care. This car was built to enjoy its big power. That's why the stout Torqueflite A727 three-speed automatic has a shift kit, and it feeds the desirable and strong 489 limited-slip rear with 3.23 gears. And those wide BF Goodrich T/As put plenty of rubber in the road.
Plymouth made less than 18,000 of these hardtops in '68. How many do you think are this nice and factory correct a half-century later? Don't take too long to answer that question, because you know an exceptional Mopar like this will be gone soon. Call today!!!
