134560 / 1968 Plymouth GTX
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/o5gvjop Dressed in a unique bronze on black color combination, rocking a big block 440 Super Commando V8 under its hood and equipped with a super rare dealer installed dual quad intake, this awesome 1968 Plymouth GTX is the kind of car you can take to the local strip to beat up crosstown rivals, or take on an everyday grocery run! This stunning three owner 1968 Plymouth GTX is one of the finest Mopar muscle cars on the planet! Its complete rebuild began when Dale Wamsley of Just Metal Restorations meticulously stripped its solid original body down to bare metal and block sanded every facet into a smooth, consistent canvas. Once the cars factory accurate panels were fully prepped from beginning to end, a correct coat of Chrysler code M Turbine Bronze Metallic was expertly applied under correct black horizontal side stripes and buffed to a brilliant wet-look shine that can only be achieved with today's highly advanced paint technology. Fully detailed, covered in Plymouth turquoise and currently wearing only break-in miles since a complete rebuild, this slick Plymouths 440 cubic inch Super Commando V8 is spectacular in every measurable way! The coolest thing about this legendary Chrysler mill is its dual quad Edelbrock intake that, according to a story passed down with the title and a dealer warranty sticker that's still present in the driver's side door jamb, is a correct dealer installed piece which is original to the car. At the top of that intake, two modern carburetors, which have been blasted to appear vintage, sip fuel through fresh stainless fuel lines and suck air through a fresh re-usable filter element that is clamped into a chrome Edelbrock air cleaner. At the base of that intake, a correct points distributor sends fire through Autolite Professional plug wires. And at the sides of that intake, restored original Exhaust manifolds send spent gases into a great sounding true dual Exhaust system. Behind the big bore engine you'll find a freshly rebuilt A833 18 spline 4-speed manual transmission which sends power to a correct Dana 60 Sure Grip rear end that's stuffed with stout 3.54 gears. Naturally, the front torsion bar and rear leaf spring suspension has been completely restored and includes: a rebuilt manual steering system, new rear springs and new shocks at every wheel. At the center of the car, a free flowing 2.5 inch aluminized Exhaust system sends spent gases through an H-pipe crossover to two chamber turbo mufflers and traditional stainless tips. And at the corners of the car, new stainless brake lines and new brake hoses supply fully rebuilt factory front disc and rear drum brakes which sit behind mandatory chrome Magnum 500 wheels and meaty 215/70 turbo-Tech redline tires. This Plymouths fender tag says it was originally equipped with an S6X Black interior; and accordingly, it has been restored with a roster of reproduction parts which provide the kind of jaw-dropping good looks you just can't find in today's cars. The rear bench and the front buckets seats are firm and, despite being traditional muscle car vinyl, feel much more upscale than most. At the bottom of those seats, new black carpet props a correct Hurst shifter in the middle of a correct, chrome trimmed center console; and at the top of the seats, a tight black headliner frames a correct dome light. The cars pristine, wood trimmed dash hangs fully rebuilt gauges, which include an offset tachometer, beside an original two watt Solid State AM radio which sports Chrysler's cool thumb-wheel knobs. In front of the driver, a restored, wood rimmed steering wheel sits on a rebuilt original steering column. At the sides of the seats, correct door panels hang new armrests among fresh stainless trim, new Woodgrain applique and correct gloss black door frames. And behind the cockpit, a fully restored trunk props a full-size spare tire between a reproduction mat and a correct decklid decal. If you're in the market for an old school, investment grade muscle car that will gain value while you're enjoying it for years to come, this broad shouldered Plymouth is just what you've been looking for!

1968 Plymouth GTX at Saint Louis Assembly--For One Last Time
We take a '68 Plymouth GTX to Fenton, MO, to see the factory where the car was built. It's being torn down (10/19/10), so we're glad we saw it before it was too late.
