1968 Plymouth GTX 440 Super Commando V8 Mopar Muscle Car
I thought you might like a look at this nicely restored 1968 Plymouth GTX
hardtop. It's powered by the big 440 Super Commando V8, backed by a Hurst
4-spd manual transmission. This 440 has been bored .030 over, forged 6 pack
pistons, 69 high nickel content block, Herb McCandles 906 cast # big valve
heads, purple cam 509-292, and a Holley 850 double pumper carb. All the
power is funneled to a Dana 60 rear with sure-grip. Ductile iron rockers.
Main studs. 1/2 inch oil pickup. Windage tray. Paint is M-1 Turbine Bronze
with a flat black hood. New black vinyl interior with some red accents.
Radial tires. Owner's Manual included. This is a nice Mopar that sounds
great and is a blast to drive. Thanks for taking a look!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

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! Call, click or
