#'S MATCH 440, 4 SP, PB, 1 OF 1,471, RECENT RESTORATION, CORRECT COLORS, A+ GTX

You're looking at a true Mopar dream machine. This is a 1970 Plymouth GTX that's factory-correct inside and out, and even has it's original 440 big block under the hood. And when you can take control of this fully restored beauty with the four-speed stick, you know you've found muscle car heaven.

Take time to appreciate all the investment that went into restoring this GTX. Straight lines are especially critical on Mopar's iconic block B-body cars, because while these were the midsize offering, the stylists knew how to give them the look of unflinching full-size authority. But the sheetmetal is only part of the story. Burnt Orange Metallic was on Plymouth's color pallet in 1970, but it never looked this good from the factory. There has been an investment in a modern metallic paint, and a professional hand applying it. So, now all the subtle creases of the bodywork really pop when the sunlight hits this super-straight coupe. And the only think that shines brighter are the extra-wide mirror-like bumpers. But more than just a fantastic vintage presentation, this is one intimidating muscle machine. It came directly from the factory with aggressive features like the optional hood pins, those large side scoops, black triple-stripe package, and that big, bad Air Grabber hood scoop that rises up and looks like it wants to consume all the lesser cars as it chargers up from behind.

When you have a pillarless hardtop like this, you know you're going to love cruising with all the windows down. That's why it's also great to have the interior match the exterior color so nicely. The driver and passenger get high back vinyl bucket seats with a comfortable center console in-between. The rest of the interior is fresh and clean, which makes it all feel like a 1970s time capsule. In fact, the restoration is so complete, even the AM radio and key buzzer are working! The wood paneling matches the burnt orange color quite nicely, and everything from the heat/defrost controls to the three-spoke steering wheel has the right vintage feeling. All of these are a great reminder that the upper-level GTX was a true gentleman's coupe. But just to make sure you never are in doubt that this is a true muscle machine, the full Rallye gauge panel w/large tach and the iconic Hurst pistol-grip shifter are there to get your heart racing even before you twist the key and hear the rumble.

Power comes from the biggest engine in Chrysler's stable, the feared 440 cubic-inch big block. The V8 is original to this GTX, which should make you weak in the knees thinking about the rarity. It looks like a small fortune was spent returning the engine bay to factory-correct status alone. Everything looks outstanding from the big bold block, to the Super Commando air cleaner with correct diaphragm to seal it to the hood. This monster motor inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a ferocious growl thanks to Hooker Competition headers feeding the H-pipe dual exhaust. You'll love the full control the four-speed gives you over this big V8 and its thunderous soundtrack. And grip is even well in hand thanks to front disc brakes and Cooper Cobra tires on those iconic Mopar Mag wheels.

The sale comes compete with the restoration photobook, so you can share with others the journey of how this rare classic was resurrected to look so factory fresh. Plymouth built less than 1,500 examples of these serious muscle machine GTXs like this one, and we bet it will be near impossible to find one this complete ever again. So don't miss an opportunity of a lifetime, call today!
