71 Plymouth GTX Startup
1971 Plymouth GTX that I've been working on getting back on the road. We got it as a "almost running" car. "Almost running" was somewhere between very generous and flat out false. We've ended up replacing all the bushings in the suspension and rebuilding the engine and the brakes. Now it's getting to the point that it's driveable and hoo-boy is it a hoot. Always fun to do the no tag, no muffler shakedown run :) Here's some specs: 440cu (7.2L) V8 with 727 Torqeflite reverse manual valve body; 8 3/4 rear end with 3.91 gearset. All going out to a pair of 15x10 Centerline rims with BF Goodrich 295/50R15 tires. Still not sure if we're going to be putting in the 4-speed or keeping the brutal automatic. Such a fun car. My little camera can't capture the amount of noise this thing puts out. It currently is just running around an old set of 2.5" pipes with no mufflers that end somewhere under the rear seats. Can't get enough Mopar!

1971 Plymouth Roadrunner Flint Mi. , 440 6 pack, for sale, Auto Appraisal, Jason Phillips
This vary rare (only 109 produced) 1971 V code Roadrunner ran well (code E87=385hp), This 440 6 pack engine was just rebuilt, although it's still in need of some carb tuning and could stand a timing adjustment. It holds the road nice, and will brake well with a good bleed out. I accidentally called it a Dana, but it's really an 8 3/4 rear, that you can hear a little gear whine in the video. The upside is that it's a real beauty in it's factory original Hemi Orange with a slight pearl in the clearcoat. This is one of the cleanest, straightest bodies I've seen in a Mopar. The whole car was rotissaried in body color, including body color wheel wells. Tuned and timed on a fresh motor build, this car is for sale, $47,500.00. http://www.autoappraise.com 800-301-3886
