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.
