133063 / 1967 Plymouth Belvedere GTX

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/d6ytvc2 RK Motors Charlotte presents this as THE FINEST restored Hemi '67 GTX on the planet. It was a 1st place winner in the invitation only Classic American Performance class at the 2009 Glenmoor Gathering of Significant Cars and was a nearly impossible to find original paint survivor Hemi car with its original fender tag and broadcast sheet. Tim Wilhelm and our restoration crew first documented the car before carefully taking the car apart, labeling and bagging every nut, bolt and screw. After chemically stripping the entire car, Tim and company took the gracefully aged body to task. Before, during and after photos reveal the extremely minimal work needed to patch the bottoms of the quarters and one rocker - NO other sheet metal was cut out, including the perfect trunk floor. After weeks of sanding, primer went down and slowly, as the panels received more and more attention, the body was ready to paint. DuPont Chromapremier paint was chosen, and the carefully matched WW1 white was laid down. Layers of clearcoat were added and wet sanded and buffed to its current condition. Every piece of exterior trim is original with the exception of the antenna and base, the windows, rocker and wheel lip moldings, lock set, marker light lenses, fender turn signals, and the taillights and bezels. We replaced the 1977 aftermarket wheels with 1967-only wheels which are fully restored and carry a spring date code. The '67-specific hubcaps are outstanding originals which were fully restored. We sent the motor to noted Hemi expert Larry Shepard for a full-on, no-expense-spared concours restoration. Not far into the engine's disassembly, Larry gave us a call and told us not only was our Hemi a clean one, it was a factory Super Stock piece! The fender tag shows this car was scheduled for build on June 28, 1967, making it most likely the very last '67 Hemi X built. Shepard's went through the engine leaving no part untouched and creating one of the finest detailed Hemis on the planet. Then we restored the engine compartment using original and correct pieces all the way down to the screws that secure the fender tag... Literally days were spent researching the correct finishes on parts through examination of original parts, other GTX's and phone calls to experts such as Frank Badalson and Dave Wise. The sheet metal underneath was treated to the same care as the top, and sports a fresh coat of white paint. While this was originally an undercoated car we elected to paint the car white everywhere. It would take very little effort to apply the coating if you wish. The chassis and suspension under the car was carefully researched, restored and re-assembled with every piece being exact to factory appearance and specifications. After we disassembled the interior, we sent all of the chrome trim and pieces for a show quality restoration. Then the gauge cluster went to Auto Instruments, a sample of the original headliner went to SMS Auto Fabrics and the seat belts went to SSnake Oyl Products. New Legendary upholstery and door panels were ordered along with new window cranks and armrest bases from Van's Auto and a new center console, top plates and shift knob from BE/A. Auto Custom Carpet supplied both the rug and the logo floor mats and Mega Parts provided various small parts including the firewall insulation, the glove box liner and the sill plates. The dashboard and steering column were completely torn down, media blasted, cleaned and sent over to the body shop for paint along with the kick panels, center console, rear seat crown, dash pad, speaker grille, steering wheel center cap and steering column trim. The original armrest pads, door jamb windlace, seat backs and side panels were refinished in the proper P6K code copper dye. Finally, we installed the freshly restored wood grain wheel from Gary's Steering Wheels along with an original center cap from Mitchell Motor Parts. This car is here to show we can build no-excuses, no B.S. show car, which few in the world can rival. Incredibly documented, long term ownership, numbers matching, original sheet metal, award-winning and near flawless in every way.

132503 / 1964 Pontiac GTO
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/d2rqzqe If you're looking for exclusivity, this is the GTO to own. The paint is a special order color not on the Pontiac books and reflected in the cowl tag, it is factory-equipped with a 389 Tri-Power engine and optional 4-speed, and has enough documentation to answer all the questions you're sure to get at the Pontiac Nationals. The color is correct, and research suggests that it's close to Sunfire Red Metallic, but not quite. The bodywork was expertly refinished and the body was given a thorough block sanding in preparation for the unique finish. With the clean, unadorned lines of the first GTO, there's really no place for shoddy workmanship to hide, and it's immediately obvious that this car is as straight as they come. The crease along the lower body remains sharp, gaps are very good throughout, and the paint finish has a subtle glow that has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated. Of course, the chrome was also refinished, the stainless was polished, and any glass that wasn't up to snuff was replaced with new pieces. Although there are probably 50% more Tri-Power GTOs in existence today than were ever built by the factory, this one is, indeed, a real Tri-Power car, according to the window sticker and build sheets acquired from PHS. When the car was restored several years ago, it was detailed for show and still shows nicely, with only minor signs of use. The Pontiac Turquoise finish on the block and heads remains bright, the carburetors and linkage all work correctly, and it wears a trio of miniature chrome air cleaners just as it did when it was new. An aftermarket A/C system was apparently installed sometime in the car's past, and it has been retained, rebuilt, and now carries modern R134a refrigerant. It also offers optional power steering, however power brakes were not specified on this high-option car for some reason. It runs beautifully, fires up easily, and thanks to a newer dual Exhaust system with Flowmasters and proper turn-downs, it sounds downright ferocious. This is also a factory M20 4-speed car, and offers a 3.23 gear set and Saf-T-Track limited slip as well. The chassis was properly finished at the time of the restoration, and like the engine bay shows lights signs of use. The floors are solid, the frame shows no indications of previous damage, and it appears that there are new shocks at all four corners. Redline tires are a period-perfect touch, and the original full wheel covers with simulated knock-off centers have been retained, giving the car an appropriately authentic look. The cowl tag suggests that this car originally had a red interior, but after seeing how gorgeous the white buckets look inside the lovely red coupe, nobody will complain. The buckets have been reupholstered using correct materials and patterns and obviously everything is new, including the door panels, dash pad, headliner, and even things like the sunvisors. A full-length console offers an accessory tachometer located down low, just below the A/C. Also note that this car carries factory power windows, an AM radio with deck-mounted power antenna, and a custom sports steering wheel that has been color-matched to the interior. The fully finished trunk offers a correct trunk mat and matching spare tire cover for a factory fresh look. There can't be many first-year GTOs more unique than this. From the custom color to the long list of options, it's a great car with a fascinating pedigree. The restoration was exceptionally well done, and the car has been driven only sparingly since it was completed, so it still looks great. If you've always wanted an early GTO, this is the one to own.

132609 / 2003 Jaguar XKR
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/dyb9jho This pristine, low mileage XKR combines traditional old world Jaguar luxury with a sophisticated supercharged engine and a striking cat-like body to create a stunning modern classic with excellent performance credentials. Envisioned to pay tribute to the classic Jaguar XK E sports cars of the 1960s, the first generation XKRs alluring, projectile shaped body combines the stylish lines of Jaguars XK8 series with freshened R spec trim and accessories. Painted in a dynamic shade of Zircon Blue that is as clear as a Caribbean swimming hole, this XKR's seductive steel reinforced monocoque body panels have never been wrecked or damaged in any way, and display the excellent build quality British luxury marques are known for. The chrome trimmed "4.2" badge on the car's rear valence is referring to Ford's hot supercharged 4.2 liter DOHC 'AJ' V8 which produces a healthy 390 horsepower and a robust 399 lb./ft. of torque! Utilizing an Eaton belt-driven Supercharger, fixed camshaft phasing and stronger oil jet cooled pistons, the 4.2 liter 'AJ' is capable of carrying this rather heavy car to brisk 5.2 second 60 MPH sprints and an electronically limited top speed of 155 MPH. Tilt the massive blue hood and you'll find a clean, exceptionally maintained engine bay that has only seen 3,900 miles per year since it left the showroom. And judging by how clean and well-kept everything is, I'd venture to say this car was either used as a sunny day cruiser or, at the very least, kept in a garage most of its life. Underneath the car, a Bosch "Mechatronic" controlled lightweight ZF 6HP26 6-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels while Dynamic Stability Control that's complete with Emergency Brake Assist eliminates wheel spin and ensures a quick stop in the event of an emergency. At the front of the car, a lightweight alloy crossbeam holds unequal length wishbones, uprated coil springs and adaptive telescopic shocks, and at the back of the car, a second unequal length set up includes driveshafts as its upper links, another pair of uprated coil springs and two more adaptive telescopic shocks. As part of the XKR's standard Computer Active Technology (CAT) suspension system, that hardware joins two-stage adaptive ride control that automatically selects firm or soft damping in response to driving style and combines with the cars anti-roll bars to enhance both comfort and handling. At the corners, standard traction control combines with a Brembo four wheel disc antilock brake system that includes radially ventilated 13 inch front and 12 inch rear rotors to provide sports car handling and short stopping distances. On the outside of those rotors, this XKR's wheel wells are filled with 18 inch green 'growler' capped 'Hydra' wheels that are wrapped in 245/45 front and 255/45 rear Goodyear Eagle F1 tires. Open the doors on this low-slung XKR, and you'll find an ivory Connolly leather and Burl Walnut interior that is exactly what you would expect from a Jaguar. The heated power adjustable seats (12-way driver, 8-way passenger) show little to no wear at all and, the door mounted two driver memory system allows you to completely customize your driving position. Between the seats, the cars great looking ivory console holds an "R" branded leather wrapped MOMO shift knob above Jaguars famous J-gate gear selector and a 'sport mode' button which adjusts the cars shift points for maximum use of the AJ V8s power. Below the console, dark carpet that is protected by color matched floor mats contrasts nicely to the ivory seats and console while perfectly matching the cars pristine dash and two-tone door panels. Inside that two-tone Walnut and silver trimmed dash, a host of gauges complement standard JaguarNet navigation and a 320 watt Alpine premium audio system that includes eight speakers and a trunk mounted six disc CD changer. In front of the driver, a 'growler' branded wood and leather MOMO steering wheel sits on a tilt and telescoping column and features buttons for the cars audio, forward alert radar adaptive cruise control and integrated Bluetooth phone system. With its unmatched combination of old world craftsmanship and contemporary modern conveniences this 2003 XKR will make you feel like an A-list celebrity on even the simplest errand runs!

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.

132636 / 1980 Pontiac Trans Am Turbo Pace Car
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cxmoqkm As one of only 5,700 cars built to commemorate the first time one car paced both the Indy 500 and Daytona 500 in the same year, this 1980 Trans Am turbo Pace Car is one of the most exclusive Trans Ams ever built. Owned by one very meticulous owner and garage kept for its entire existence, this pristine California Pontiac is one of the cleanest second generation Trans Ams we've ever offered. Thanks to three decades of exceptional maintenance and a little cosmetic T.L.C. from RK Motors Charlotte's first rate restoration shop, the car presents as well today as it did it when it rolled off the showroom floor over 30 years ago. A bright and crisp coat of correct GM code 11 Cameo White covers 100% original body panels which are straight, rock solid and free of waves and major imperfections. Because this Trans Am has never been fully disassembled, it still displays completely accurate panel gaps that are surprisingly tight and provide the car with great panel fitment and correct factory alignment. On top of the ghost white panels, a fresh set of tri-color outlining stripes perfectly complements a five color 'turbo bird' hood decal and factory applied Indianapolis 500 Pace Car door stickers to complete the look. Under this Trans Ams "turbo" stamped hood you'll find an all original Pontiac code YL turbocharged 301 V8 that made substantially more twist than the mighty 6.6 liter it replaced while being significantly more efficient. Originally conceived as an economy offering, the Pontiac 301 was beefed up with a slew of upgrades in preparation for a Garrett TBO-305 turbocharger. Once the turbo was installed, it created a waste limited 9 PSI of Boost and helped the reborn 301 achieve 236 horsepower and a serious 345 lb./ft. of torque. Riding below a factory installed heat shield that prevents the paint on the car's hood from bubbling, that Garrett blower is fed by a high pressure fuel pump, cooled by a high pressure oil pump and breathes through turbo specific Exhaust manifolds. Below the turbo, a YL 301 specific Rochester Quadrajet M4ME 800 CFM carburetor sits in front of an original HEI distributor which sends power to the cylinders through blue Belden Edge plug wires. All the hard parts around the motor, from the belt driven accessories to the brake Booster and turbo mandated C51 air conditioning are factory original pieces, and all the belts and hoses appear to be in good working order. Behind the motor, the cars original tough and proven turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed automatic transmission sends power to the cars original 3.08 Posi-traction rear end, and a standard WS6 handling package. For 1980, the WS6 package included larger sway bars, better shocks and springs, a tighter steering gear box and newly designed power front and rear disc brakes that, when combined with the cars standard power steering, made for serious handling ability and greatly reduced stopping distances. Power flows to the pavement through pliable 225/70 white letter Goodyear Polysteel Radials that are mounted to exclusive 15 inch 'turbo' style aluminum wheels. The cars all original fully equipped Oyster interior features optional doeskin vinyl with hobnail cloth inserts which creates a sophisticated appearance. The firm and comfortable seats are nicely patterned pieces that feel every bit as comfortable as they look, and the original brown carpet shows very little wear. Between the seats, a clean gray console houses chrome switches for the cars power windows behind an engine turned shift plate, and above the seats, a stain free headliner is stretched tight around the cars mirrored tops. In front of the driver, an excellent looking engine turned dash houses crystal clear gauges above controls for heat and air conditioning and the cars exclusive Delco-GM seek/scan stereo cassette player. At the sides of the seats, excellent Oyster door panels that feature bright 'turbo bird' embroidery are detailed in pristine stainless trim and chrome door handles and door lock buttons. Connecting the driver to the road is a correct aluminum steering wheel that features a gray rim and sits on an optional tilt steering column. With its clean turbocharged motor, fantastic interior and rare low mileage, this has to be one of the nicest Trans Am turbo Pace Cars available anywhere.





1967 Black on Black Plymouth GTX
This beautiful 1967 Plymouth GTX belongs to Doug Bolt of Orlando, Florida





134647/ 1967 Plymouth Belvedere GTX
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/dybj4vm This 1967 GTX is a super clean, near-survivor 4-speed car with 99% of its original parts. Present is the original fender tag, original distributor tag, original seat tags and all original sheet-metal. Understanding that we had a 100% correct, complete numbers-matching car, we decided to send the original engine, transmission and air cleaner off to Shepard's Automotive. In case you've never heard of Shepard's, they were founded by Larry Shepard, Sr., an engineer at Chrysler Corporation in the 1960s, who worked under Tom Hoover (the Godfather of the HEMI at Chrysler when they rolled out the street HEMI in 1966). Larry was later an engineer at Mopar Performance and has literally written the book on Mopar performance engines (in fact, I think he's written five or six). With an impressive bank of NOS and original parts and an even more impressive knowledge base, there was nobody out there better suited to restore the drive-train in our GTX. With the doors, fenders, deck lid and hood removed, the entire body was placed on a rotisserie and sent off for dipping and e-coating. After the body was returned to our shop, we completed the metal work quickly, which was limited to a few small patches in the lower driver's side quarter panel. Because we replicated the original factory welds, you wouldn't know that the work was done if we didn't tell you. As we learned when we received the body shell back from the dip shop, the original floor pans, trunk floor and floor pans were perfect, with no prior rot or rust. With the metal work complete, the car was primed, block-sanded, block-sanded some more and then block-sanded again for good measure and then painted in base coat/clear coat. Only after the base paint and clear coat were applied was the Medium Red Metallic sport stripes painted on, exactly the way it was done on the assembly line. If you ever see a restored 1967 GTX with the painted stripes flush with the base color, it's WRONG. On the underside, our restoration shop replicated the factory primer processes, complete with blown overspray. After the drivetrain was properly bolted into place, our shop installed the original and now restored Dana 60 rear axle and restored rear suspension. We installed brand new stainless fuel lines, brake lines, brake hoses, grommets, weather-stripping and gaskets. A new fuel tank was bolted into place, and a complete, reproduction concours HEMI Exhaust handles the soundtrack. The entire braking system was reinstalled, using a combination of restored original and replacement parts. After the front suspension was in place, the restored and extremely hard to find 1967-only HEMI steel wheels were bolted up to the car, complete with four brand new reproduction redline tires. Finishing off the restored rolling stock were the four original, restored HEMI-only dog dish caps. Turning our attention to the interior, our in-house interior expert Ralph Farinacci went to work. The front and rear seats and most of the interior parts had been finished by Ralph over the prior three months and simply needed to be installed. Ralph is a big believer in using original parts, right down to original screws and that's how he approached the restoration of the interior on this GTX. Of course, there are new door panels and vinyl seat covers, but every other piece is original to the car. The original dash pad was restored, along with the original gauge cluster. The original steering wheel was expertly refinished to better-than-new condition. Small touches like original restored kick panels and an original rear seat speaker set this car apart from the "catalog restorations" we see so often. 1967 GTXs have boatloads of interior chrome and every single piece was redone to concours standards. Since the restoration was completed, this amazing GTX has been gently and carefully broken in and dialed in and is a true investment grade car which can be enjoyed on summer nights or rolled off a trailer at any concourse event. We all have our ultimate cars-if the 1967 HEMI GTX is yours, you can't do much better than this one!





132634 / 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/dypeek7 Decked in a smooth coat of traditional red paint and sporting a custom upholstered interior, this red hot 'tri-five' is an exceptionally restored weekend warrior that is ready for endless nights of carefree cruising. The beneficiary of a recent frame up restoration, this picturesque '57 Chevy utilizes the highest quality replacement parts on the market to create a no excuses car with classic good looks. During the extensive restoration every piece of the body was honed and fine-tuned until it was as close to perfect as it could get. Once the panels were properly fitted, a fantastic coat of traditional red paint was professionally applied and the car was re-assembled into the arrow straight coupe you see here. Centered in this hot Chevrolets satin black engine bay is a fully dressed, great sounding 350 cubic inch V8. At the top of that 350 a polished aluminum air cleaner sends air through a reusable filter into a chrome four barrel Edelbrock Webber carburetor. Below that carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold holds a chrome covered coil in front of a Pertronix Flame Thrower billet distributor. On each side of the intake, new chrome valve covers sit above loomed Taylor wires and block hugger headers which send gas into a great sounding true dual Exhaust system. In front of the engine, fresh V-belts spin a chrome alternator, a polished AC compressor a chrome power steering pump and billet pulleys behind a correct radiator that's equipped with fresh hoses, an electric fan and a smooth billet cap. Underneath the car, a stunningly straight and smooth chassis is finished in GM satin black, and along with the cars clean suspension parts, hints that this '57 Bel Air has been frame off restored at some point in its life. The floor pans are solid and don't appear to have any significant repairs, and the chassis shows surprisingly little curb rash despite being 54 years old. Up front, the cars Chevrolet Orange oil pan sits in front of a beefy 5-speed manual transmission that shifts better than any OEM unit produced in 1957. Holding the drivetrain in place is a clean suspension which includes the cars correct coil springs inside of upfitted front disc brakes and recently replaced leaf springs and shocks inside of correct rear drum brakes. Keeping the car connected to the pavement is a sweet set of 15 inch American Racing Torq Thrust IIs that are outfitted with traditional knock offs and 215/60 front and 225/60 rear BF Goodrich Comp T/A radials. Inside, a striking red custom interior that looks rich enough to be velvet takes this '57 Chevys visual pop from a 10 to a 15! The stylish, curved '57 Chevy dash is painted bright red to match the exterior of the car, and is detailed in spectacular stainless trim from door to door. On the left side of the dash, the cars red and chrome gauge pod includes a bow-tie equipped speedometer, a fuel gauge and a temperature gauge. In the middle of the dash you'll find a correct AM radio above controls for the cars Vintage Air climate control system, and on the passenger's side of the dash a Bel Air exclusive script complements a factory clock. Below the dash, custom covered red kick panels flow into spotless red carpet which holds a fire extinguisher, a chrome Hurst shifter and red rubber floor mats with colorful Chevrolet crests. The cars fully restored red bench seats feel firm to the touch and feature stainless trim in front and a center mount Bel Air speaker in back. At the sides of the seats, custom covered door panels are detailed with flawless stainless trim and chrome handles, and above the seats, a custom red headliner hangs custom visors. In front of the driver, a red tilt steering column is complete with billet stalks for the turn signals and column, a large Autogage tachometer and a 'cut down' original Bel Air steering wheel. Fully sorted and ready to hit the road, this 1957 Bel Air is a highly desirable 'tri-five' that's been tweaked with all of the right stuff to be a serious road machine and a weekend trophy winner.
