For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cp7ta56
Thanks to a thorough and meticulous six year restoration, this 1967 GTX
Convertible HEMI is a magnificent car in every way. Starting with a rust
free, low mile car, this GTX was disassembled down to a bare body, with the
doors, hood, deck lid and fenders removed for refinishing. Over the next
five years, more than $50,000.00 was spent to transform the GTX body into a
perfectly straight masterpiece, with perfect panel gaps and amazing black
Every square inch of the exterior of this GTX was restored or replaced.
Check out the front and rear bumpers, the door handles, side mirror, hood
scoop bezels, fender-mounted turn signals and the tail light bezels--all of
these chrome items were re-plated to show quality standards. The anodized
aluminum headlight bezels, grill and tail light panel were all restored to
the highest standards. All of the exterior stainless steel, including the
wheel lip moldings, was carefully polished and restored to better than new
standards. The NASCAR style gas cap was replaced with a B/E & A
Specialties high quality reproduction unit. As well, new marker lights,
reverse lights and new emblems were sourced and installed. You can't have
a blinding perfect body without perfect glass, so a complete new glass set
was ordered and installed, along with new window felts, weather-strips,
seals, body plugs and grommets.
Carefully open the perfectly aligned hood and staring you in the face is a
massive chromed 1967 Street HEMI air cleaner and two equally massive
original, restored HEMI valve covers. The vintage HEMI block was torn down
and rebuilt. After the engine was assembled, it was expertly tuned and
balanced. In all respects, this is a brand new vintage 426 HEMI engine,
with correct heads, pistons, rods and crank. Present are two correct 1967
HEMI carburetors, a correct intake, correct Exhaust manifolds, correct water pump, correct
alternator and correct power steering crank pulley. Additional details
abound: correct reproduction battery and positive/negative battery cables;
reproduction washer bottle; correct restored 26" radiator; correct hoses,
clamps and plug wires. A Classic Auto Air system is neatly bolted to the
front of the engine and you'll also notice a correct power steering system
and an MPC power brake system.
Moving on to the underside of the GTX, the entire front suspension was
blasted, and restored. The rear suspension was also blasted and repainted,
with new shocks posted at all four corners. A new fuel tank, along with
new fuel lines, new brake lines and new rubber hoses were installed.
Underneath the car you'll spot a brand new Keisler Tremec TKO 500 5-speed
manual transmission along with a brand new slip yoke, cross member, reverse
light assembly, bell-housing, clutch, pressure plate and throw-out bearing.
The brand new balanced drive-shaft feeds an equally brand new Strange Dana
60 axle, with a 3.54 posi gear-set. The GTX rolls on four brand new
BFGoodrich P225/70R14 red-line radials mounted to four brand new Magnum 500
road wheels with center caps.
Not a single part of the interior of this GTX went un-restored. All of the
following was sourced as new: four door panels; two door handles; four
window cranks; six seat covers, six seat foams; center console; center
console top plates and hardware; pistol grip shifter; two kick panels; rear
seat GTX emblem. Every single piece of chrome in this interior was
re-plated to show standards. The original 1967 seat-belts were expertly
restored and show as better than new. The original instrument cluster was
disassembled and rebuilt and reinstalled into the beautiful re-painted
dash, capped by a restored dash pad. Every dash knob and bezel was
re-plated. The original AM/FM radio was rebuilt by Chet Greenwood. The
Classic Auto Air system is expertly installed and is activated using the
factory heater controls, immediately flooding the cabin with cool air on
hot summer days or nights. To cap off the stunning interior, a brand new
black convertible top with rear glass window was expertly installed on to
the restored convertible top hardware.
This HEMI powered triple black convertible, with a pistol grip 5-speed,
power brakes, power steering and air conditioning is the kind of car that
you can enjoy for a lifetime.

57 Tulsa buried 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Boyd Coddington
Tulsa Story :This is a video pictorial of the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere that
was buried in
Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 15, 1957 as a time capsule. It was uncovered 50
years later on June 15, 2007.
I was hoping to see a pristine version of "Miss Belvedere", but as it
out, the vault leaked and filled with water, causing much damage to the
automobile. As a car enthusiast, I watched the story develop over the
few years. I waited and watched it live online as she was extracted from
the ground. When I saw the rust-colored dirt and muck on her, I had a bad
feeling about her condition.
I wish the person who won this car (by guessing the closest to the town's
actual 2007 population back in 1957) could have it restored, but that would
be a massive undertaking. On the other hand, she should get a chance to

Miss Belvedere Moves On
By Old Cars Weekly
After spending nearly 50 years quietly rusting beneath the Tulsa County
Courthouse lawn, the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere affectionately known as "Miss
Belvedere," is on the road once again.
Don't get too excited, when she rolled out of Tulsa earlier today, it
wasn't under her own power—she was whisked out of town in the back of a
After months of legal wrangling to establish ownership of what is clearly
the most famous "finned" Mopar in the world (yes, even more famous than
Stephen King's "infamous" Christine), Miss Belvedere has begun her journey
to New Jersey — and possibly a rust-free future.
Levada Humbertson Carney and Catherine Humbertson Johnson, elderly sisters
from Maryland, will officially take possession of the Belvedere as
beneficiaries of their brother Raymond Humbertson who won the car as part
of a contest held back in 1957.
Buried with the car was a time capsule containing people's guesses as to
what the population of Tulsa would be in 2007. Included among the hundreds
of guesses, was one made by Raymond Humbertson of Cumberland, Md., who died
in 1979. His guess was only 2,286 off the actual census numbers, closer
than any other entry.
Assisting the cars elderly owners will be Levada Carney's son Robert Carney
and Dwight Foster, President of the UltraOne Corporation.
As you will recall, as part of this ongoing saga, New Jersey-based
UltraOne, manufacturer of a line of rust removal products, will now begin
the pain-staking process of de-rusting and preserving what remains of the
According to Robert Carney, the car, which suffers from extensive damage
after being submerged in conditions described as a "watery grave" for an
unknown number of years, may eventually be able to take to the road under
her own power.
Once Miss Belvedere arrives in New Jersey she will undergo a lengthy
cleansing and rust removal process that her new owners and the folks at
UltraOne hope will stabilize the car before sealing it with a clear-coat
designed to halt the rusting process.
"We will not be restoring the car but preserving her for the future," Mr.
Foster told the Tulsa World. "We have to stop the rust, because if nothing
is done, this car will be dust in two years."
According to the UltraOne Web site, future plans for Miss Belvedere could
include a second Tulsa unveiling and a tour around the country for special
events. Following the tour, the car's future remains unclear.
However, it has speculated that the car could find her way to the
Barrett-Jackson auction block in Scottsdale in the coming years.

way to expand the channel a little.
I have been wanting to do a review and drive of a long time member of the
family. This is the old man's 1959 Plymouth he has had.. well basically
since 1959. I hope you enjoy seeing this "old bomb" as he calls it.

Martin Sanchez dreamed of having a classic car from the 50's and then he
read Steven King's novel "Christine." As a 16 year old kid he began looking
for his dream car from the book, but so was John Carpenter for his movie.
After the movie wrapped Martin found exactly what he had been looking for.

Plymouth GTX 440 LOUD SOUND RoadRunner V8
Plymouth GTX 440 / RoadRunner Sound - Hello and welcome to the Car
Acceleration TV Channel 2014. In today's video, we want to show you a great
american classic car, the Plymouth GTX 440 / RoadRunner. The V8 engine
sound is really incredible. Watch this Plymouth video for cold start sound,
drive scenes and listen the horn. End of 1970, the Belvedere was replaced
by the Plymouth Satellite. Consequently, based on the GTX now the new
model. However, this lasted only one year. Completely new was the coupé
body, technically, everything remained the same. Available were still the
7.2-liter with two power ratings and the seven-liter Hemi V8. Due to sharp
decline in sales of the GTX was taken as a stand-alone model in the fall of
1971 from the program, in the model years 1972 to 1974 there were but for
the continuing Plymouth Road Runner GTX a package. My opinion is from this
period is the most interesting of the Plymouth Cuda Barracuda model.
