132149 / 1970 Plymouth GTX
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7vw9dmc 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!
