This west coast 1970 GTX comes to us with a matching-numbers 440 cubic inch
big block and bathed in its correct Dark Burnt Orange Metallic paint. Two
stage urethane glistens on the sleek GTX sheetmetal, vividly contrasting
with the bright white vinyl top and longitudinal tape stripes. Look at the
reflections in the photos and you know that the finish has been rubbed and
buffed until it was as smooth as glass. The vinyl top is correct and
extremely well installed with no wrinkles or bubbles, and even the grain is

Given a nut-and-bolt restoration by RK Motors, this matching-numbers V-code
1970 GTX is truly sublime. The paint and bodywork are concours-grade, so
good that you can see the quality in the photos. Those massive quarter
panels are straight, straight, straight, and the body gaps are better than
new. Look again at how well the deck lid fits and then go try to find
another '70 GTX that looks that good—you just won't. Correct satin black
stripes were added to the Air Grabber hood to duplicate the Performance
Hood Treatment, and along the sides of the car terminating in the scoops in
the rear quarters.
Remove the hood pins on the Air Grabber hood, and underneath you'll find
the original V-code High Performance 440 Six-Pack Super Commando engine.
The engine was rebuilt to stock specs during the restoration, and even
though the car was getting a mild update, that didn't mean that the engine
bay needed anything. Everything is factory-correct, from the Hemi Orange
paint on the block, to the hoses and clamps, to the red cap reproduction
battery. Up top, the Six Pack carburetion system was rebuilt and tucked
away under that massive air cleaner. The only non-stock addition to the horsepower department
is a set of beautifully made and finished long-tube headers which give this
big block Mopar a little more high-end horsepower.
The chassis was where a bulk of the modifications were made, but again,
there's nothing that can't be unbolted and returned to stock in a weekend
if a pure stock GTX is what you're after. Detailed for show, everything is
new, from the lines and hoses to the gas tank, as well as that beautifully
finished stainless steel Exhaust
system with Magnaflow mufflers. The transmission is the original 4-speed
manual that came with the car, and out back is a stout Dana with the Track
Pac option, and stuffed with 3.54 gears. Up front, the original suspension
was modified with a set of coil-over shocks and fat sway bars, along with a
tighter steering box for improved steering feel. In back, lighter leaf
springs and upgraded shocks were installed to make the chassis more
responsive, and polyurethane bushings were used throughout to improve
precision and tracking. Wilwood disc brakes were installed at all four
corners, finally giving this Mopar the braking power to match the horsepower that it has had
all along. Rounding out the modifications is a set of custom-built billet
aluminum wheels with blacked-out centers and polished rims. Tires are
Michelin Pilots with 17s up front and 18s out back.
Restored to 100% stock specifications, the black bucket seat interior of
this car is every bit as comfortable as it looks. The seats have been given
new foam and seat covers, which feature gray piping for a little bit of
contrast, and a center armrest to add to the luxury feel. New black carpets
are on the floor, protected by GTX logo floor mats, and a new headliner has
been installed as well. The gauges were rebuilt, including the
Tic-Toc-Tach, and there's a correct Pistol Grip shifter atop the 4-speed
transmission. The trunk was also finished to OEM standards, with a new mat
and full-sized spare and jack assembly.
This is one we built for ourselves, so you know it's a #1 quality car in
every way. If you've been looking for a GTX, but most seem too ordinary to
you, maybe this is what you've been searching for. Give us a call today!

1970 Plymouth RoadRunner 440 6 pack
1970 brought new front and rear end looks to the basic 1968 body, and it
would prove to be another success. Updates included a new grille, leather
seats, hood, front fenders, quarter panels, single-piston Kelsey-Hayes disc
brakes (improved from the rather small-rotor Bendix 4 piston calipers of
'68 - '69 ), and even non-functional scoops in the rear quarters. The
design and functionality of the Air Grabber option was changed this year to
increase both efficiency and the "intimidation factor". A switch below the
dash actuated a vacuum servo to slowly raise the forward-facing scoop,
exposing shark-like teeth on either side. "High Impact" colors, with names
like In-Violet, Moulin Rouge, and Vitamin C, were options available for
that year. The 1970 Road Runner and GTX continued to be attractive and
popular cars. The engine lineup was left unchanged although a heavy-duty
three-speed manual became the standard transmission, relegating the
four-speed to the option list along with the TorqueFlite automatic. This
was to be the second and last year of the Road Runner convertible, with
only 834 made. These cars are considered more valuable than the 1969
version due to a better dash, high impact colors and more options including
the new high-back bucket seats shared with other Chrysler products which
featured built-in headrests.
The relatively popular 440 Six Barrel was relegated to option status for
1970. The 1969 "M" Code Edelbrock aluminum intake was replaced by a
factory-produced cast iron piece; however, due to a porous casting, there
was a recall early in the iron intake-equipped 440+6 run, and these were
supposed to be replaced with the more-desirable Edelbrock intake from the
Sales of the '70 Road Runner dropped by more than 50 percent over the
previous year to around 41,000 units (about 1,000 ahead of Pontiac's GTO
but still about 13,000 units behind Chevy's Chevelle SS-396/454). This
would also be the last year of the road runner convertible with 834 total
production. Only 3 hemi (R) code road runner convertibles were built. The
declining sales of Road Runner and other muscle cars were the result of a
move by insurance companies to add surcharges for muscle car policies -
making insurance premiums for high-performance vehicles a very expensive
proposition. Also, Plymouth introduced another bargain-basement muscle car
for 1970, the compact Duster 340 which was powered by a 275-horsepower 340 Magnum V8
which in the lighter-weight compact A-body could perform as well if not
better than a 383 Road Runner. Furthermore, the Duster 340 was priced even
lower than the Road Runner and its smaller engine qualified it for much
lower insurance rates.
The Chevy engine comment was a joke.
