Description:

In 1968, if you were shopping for a hot car, you had more choices than at almost any other point in history. If you were a Mopar fan, you knew that you could get a GTX with a bunch of go-fast goodies, plus a nice dose of comfort and convenience items, not to mention an awfully long options list to go along with it. This ''68 GTX is a great example of Plymouth''s top sport coupe, which leaves little doubt as to the original owner''s intentions. First of all, Matador Red looks awfully good on the big GTX''s sheetmetal, and it remains a very popular color today. Combine black stripes with a matching vinyl top, and with a restoration this nice, nobody will ever complain about the look, that''s for sure. Fit and finish are very good, and surely much nicer than what the factory was producing when these were new. In bright red, it''s hard to ignore the GTX''s sharply creased panels, which are expertly finished and were given lots of attention during the restoration. It''s easy to see the hundreds of hours spent block sanding and smoothing the panels until they were just right, and the final result is nothing short of impressive. You also got a nice smattering of chrome on your GTX, and the bumpers and stainless on this car have been polished up to make them ready for show. Serious money was spent inside as well, and the black bucket seat interior is a wonderful place to spend some time. Luxurious and sporty, the interior sports the same soft patina as the body-nicely finished, but inviting and comfortable. Chrysler''s interior designers were the cream of the crop in the late-60s, and you can see their handiwork everywhere, from the Plymouth badges in the seat backs to the 3-spoke steering wheel, to the patterned upholstery. This is an unusual combination of bucket seats and a column shifter, but that''s how the fender tag says it was built, making this a very unique bird indeed. Fortunately, they sprang for a full complement of gauges, including a tachometer, with a pair of auxiliary instruments underneath. The original AM radio remains in the dash and the trunk is correctly finished with a reproduction mat and matching wheel and tire setup. Power comes from the biggest engine in Chrysler''s stable, the venerable 440 cubic inch big block. The engine looks very business-like under the hood, with Hemi Orange paint on the block and that big Super Commando air cleaner up top, which hides an upgraded Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor. This one shows signs of proper maintenance since it was restored, although it has been driven and enjoyed which is always good for keeping a car healthy. The original cast iron exhaust manifolds were dumped in favor of long-tube headers, which feed a Flowmaster dual exhaust system that sounds awesome. Air shocks were fitted to the rear end (which is full of 3.23 gears) to help fine-tune ride and handling, and there''s a new gas tank out back. It rolls on a set of handsome Magnum 500 wheels wearing 235/60/14 front and 245/60/14 rear white-letter radials. For the guy who wants some Mopar muscle to drive, this GTX is an excellent choice. The color combination is extremely sharp, and you just can''t go wrong with big block power. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
