Unrestored 1967 440 GTX drag racing for the first time in 38 years. This 1967 440 4 speed Plymouth GTX was stored in a warehouse in 1973. I purchased it in 1998 and was the first person to drive it on the road since '73. I put it in a shed awaiting restoration 9 years ago. On the day this video was taken (October 30, 2011) it literally had dirt dauber nests and cob webs still in the engine compartment.
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!

1962 CHEVROLET IMPALA
UNRESTORED ORIGINAL PAINT
INCREDIBLE 409 4 SPEED
The car started out as a regular impala with a 3 speed! I purchased this
car 1 year ago from the 2nd owner of 28 years who looked for one of these
cars for 2 years before finding this amazing gem! I am looking to sell only
because I just have too many car so a few have to go! He was very sad to
let her go and I may be just as sad when it does go so please understand
that I do not have to sell it but I can only say to anyone looking at my
car...FIND ANOTHER ONE LIKE THIS!. The car came from Arizona with no rust
and original paint, interior, chrome, glass, floors, trunk, etc.! The color
is anniversary gold and from what I understand it was only a one year color
and this interior came with this model as well. I know we have all heard of
original paint cars and we have seen original paint cars but almost
everyone I have ever seen has had a blow in of some kind somewhere or been
clear coated recently etc. This is 100% the

A 1/4 mile ride in Joel Nystroms Hemi 4 speed GTX
Mike Kamm sat in the back seat of my 67 Plymouth GTX, an original 30,000
mile Hemi 4 speed car, while I carefully baby it down Norwalks 1/4 mile
dragstrip. This pass was run on original style G70-14 bias ply tires, so
there was tire spin. Thats why I had to back pedal a little in 1st and the
shift light never went off in 2nd. I had the light set to come on at 6500
rpm, but wasn't shifting untill 7000. This was a mid 11 second pass at
about 124 mph.
