For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6pck2vu This 100% documented and matching numbers 1969 Plymouth GTX is a weaponized luxury cruiser with a giant motor, a 4-speed, and a bunch of convenience options like power steering, brakes, and a console. Fortunately, this car comes with an original Chrysler Corporation Broadcast Sheet that has been fully decoded by Galen Govier, so there really aren't any questions about its specifications. Someone put a big, nasty 440 and a 4-speed in their luxury-oriented GTX. Someone has also restored it to better-than-new condition. Stripped to a bare tub and placed on a rotisserie, every square inch of the original body was sandblasted bare and any flaws were repaired along the way. The original B5 Blue Fire Metallic finish was replicated inside and out, top and bottom, and again, restoration photos show a lot of block sanding going on to get it as straight as it is today. The lower flanks were finished in black with a red stripe, as were all GTXs of the time, which helped them stand out when parked alongside their Road Runner brothers. As a Govier-verified 100% matching-numbers piece, that is most definitely the original 440 cubic inch Commando V8 under the hood. Reproduction hoses and clamps show the correct markings, there's a new yellow cap battery, and all the cad plating is just the right shade of green-gold. Heck, even the battery cable has overspray on it, just like the factory did it. The Air Grabber system is fully functional, too, and you just know this big block needs all the air it can get. This one also carries its original 4-speed manual behind the engine, as well as a stout Dana 60 out back with 3.54 gears and a Sure Grip limited slip. With the body restored on a rotisserie, it was easy to make the floors look as good as the rest of the body, and they create a brilliant Blue Fire backdrop for the highly detailed chassis components. The dual Exhaust system features a crossover and a set of Flowmasters, which are one of the few deviations from stock to be found anywhere on this car, but you just can't argue with the sound this one makes. And for the ultimate in stealth, a set of painted steel wheels wearing dog dish hubcaps and Firestone Wide Oval redlines keeps the flash to a minimum. The matching blue bucket seat interior has been restored to the same high standards as the bodywork. New seat covers match the originals exactly, and include those cool headrests that seem to finish the interior and make it look complete. The dash includes a complete array of gauges, including the optional tachometer, which is tucked in just to the right of the speedometer. All the woodgrained areas, not just the center console but on the dash and door panels as well, have been upgraded with new appliques, and much of the chrome appears new. The trunk has been correctly finished with a new mat, full sized spare, and a complete jack assembly. If you've been looking for a no-questions-asked GTX, look no further. Although we seem to find more than our fair share of nice ones, they remain rare cars, particularly those that haven't been abused, beaten, rusted, and abandoned. This one has obviously been a cherished toy for decades, with car show plaques dating back to the early 80s. The restoration was comprehensive, taking this GTX to national-show-winning caliber, and the pedigree makes it stand out among its peers. We love these cars, and this is one of the best we've seen.
