Description:

Nobody underestimates a late-60s Mopar, but folks on the street would do well to give this 1968 Plymouth GTX a wide berth. Looking over the extensive original documentation and the fender tag, it''s obvious that this one was ordered and built to do only one thing: dominate the streets. With a 440 and a 4-speed and nothing to slow it down, it''s the epitome of the term "wolf in sheep''s clothing." The Sunfire Yellow paint is correct for this car and was probably chosen because of its understated, subtle look. Sure, red cars look fast and black cars look sinister, but who would expect to be stomped by a pretty yellow hardtop like this? Well, that look is all part of the game, and as a result it was carefully restored to stock specifications and looks fantastic. Fit and finish is far beyond what Chrysler was doing in 1968, and thanks to professional workmanship, the details on the body are sharp and well-executed. Panel gaps are good and all the correct GTX details, from the blacked-out hood treatment to the lower body stripes, have been expertly re-created. A correct black vinyl top was fitted as well, and looks great with no signs of trouble underneath and the correct grain on its surface, and again, I suspect that the vinyl top was added in an attempt to give this street predator a more sedate appearance. Nice! The guy filling out the order form did his homework inside, too, and specified black bucket seats, a center console, and a full gauge package for the dash, but precious little else. The seats have been beautifully reupholstered and showcase the upscale look that the GTX was famous for. Woodgrained door panels attempt to add a little luxury to the GTX, but with the benefit of hindsight, we know it was all an illusion: this is a bare-knuckle street fighter in a tuxedo. There''s an original Music Master AM radio in the dash, as well as a heater and defroster, but they took it easy on power-robbing and weight-adding options and just stuck to the basics. The gauges are brightly finished with clear markings, so they''ve surely been restored. The trunk is truly massive, as most were back in the ''60s, and includes a correct mat, spare tire, and jack assembly. The engine is a correct 440 cubic inch V8, which was the weapon of choice for many guys on a budget. Fully rebuilt to stock specs and nicely detailed, it looks pretty much the way it would have a few months after rolling out of the showroom. The only visible upgrade is a Weber carb to replace the original, but that''s easily explained by the period recall notice that details a problem with the stock carburetor. Chrysler Turquoise engine paint, reproduction hoses and clamps, and other little details highlight a very correct-looking engine bay. A new dual exhaust system with crossover and Flowmaster mufflers ends in proper chrome tips under the rear bumper and you can easily see that the floors are in good condition. The rear is a heavy-duty Dana 60 full of 3.54 gears, which makes for an ideal combination of acceleration and cruising comfort with the 4-speed transmission. Flashy Cragar wheels carry staggered 225/70/15 front and 255/60/15 rear BFG radials. Nicely documented with a Chrysler Corporation Broadcast Sheet, original invoice, manuals, and that aforementioned recall letter, this is a fast, fun Mopar that has a great pedigree as well.
