133278 / 1968 Plymouth GTX
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/aho8jr4
The GTX came off as a gentleman's hot rod in the day of stripped-down
muscle cars. Comfortable and stylish with a healthy dose of brutality mixed
in, car's like this '68 GTX have become collector favorites. Well restored
and ready for cruising, this B-body is the perfect solution to that empty
space in your garage.
The paint is blindingly red, flat and smooth. In GM land the paint work
would be referred to as a "body on" job - the interior came out, the motor
and transmission were pulled, the glass all came out and all of the jambs
were finished to better than new, but the clean undercarriage was left
untouched and original. The original undercoating remains in place,
covering rock solid floors.
As far as trim goes, it's all polished original stuff, and if it was chrome
it was replaced or re-plated. New door handles, a new antenna, new locks,
re-chromed bumpers, highly polished and dent-free window moldings, a new
windshield, restored taillights and finish panel, new lenses and more. A
slick new black vinyl top completes the exterior with style!
Lift the hood and you'll find the original 440 Super Commando V8 engine
looking better-than-new thanks to some serious attention to detail. The bay
and block alike are loaded with clear for an unreal shine while several
original and correct pieces round out the mill. From the Group 27 battery
to the correct ballast resistor, everything within sight combines to form
an authentic looking package that starts with ease and sounds awesome
through Flowmaster mufflers.
Beneath the car, a date-coded 18-spline A833 4-speed manual transmission
makes quick work of shifting. Power is applied to a sturdy Dana 60
differential packed with 3.54 gears. As an Arizona car, the undercoated
sheet metal around that drivetrain is rock solid, providing a great
backdrop for the factory suspension. At the corners, Magnum 500 wheels
wrapped in redline cap off the car's vintage look perfectly.
Between the doors, the classic interior has been revitalized with the help
of Legendary upholstery, new foam, new door panels, new carpet, new
headliner -- you name it! Instrumentation is provided by the original
gauges which sit in the original dash, just behind the original steering
column and wheel. There's an AM/FM radio but the sound of the 440 trumps
anything it could play.
Time to step up to GTX- '68 cars are wicked quick and are the last of the
understated B bodies. With excellent paint, thorough execution and
attention to detail, a fully rebuilt drive-train and 100 percent original
sheet-metal, this is one to hold on to, whether you're into cruising or
investing! Call, click or visit http://rkmotorscharlotte.com for more

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!
1959 Plymouth Sport Fury - Test Drive & Review
Since I am into more things than just RC I thought this might be a great
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.

Will it Run? Episode 6: 1958 Plymouth Savoy
Time to get the 58 Plymouth Savoy up and running! I put it on a good frame
and changed it to a standard shift. Still a long way to go, but a huge
improvement on the piece of junk I brought home last winter. It's now a 230
c.i. flathead 6 with a 3-on-the-tree. Hope you like it like I do! Thanks
for checking it out!
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!

Instruments: Guitar, Bass, Kit, Organ, EP
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
