Description

REAL L CODE 440 GTX, PERIOD CORRECT 440CI MOTOR, 4 WHEEL DISC BRAKES, AUTO

Plymouth got a two-for-one out of their Road Runner/GTX twins, but they played distinctly different roles. The Road Runner was all about bargain performance, while the GTX was its more sophisticated brother designed to combat the likes of Buick and Mercury. With that in mind, this handsome 1968 GTX combines brute horsepower with some luxury features that make a fantastic way to travel.

With a restoration that's a few years old, the subtle GTX still has presence. Finished in Turbine Bronze, which was an available color in 1968, it's a subtle, attractive color that works on the upscale GTX more than on the high-impact Road Runner or other in-your-face muscle cars. The shape was all-new in '68, but the traditional styling cues are still there, from the sleek hardtop profile to the crease in the quarter panel. The sheetmetal is quite straight and clean, suggesting a solid car was used as the foundation for this GTX. The conversion is quite thorough, with proper black rocker stripes and GTX emblems on the grille as well as just behind the doors, although the HEMI callouts on the hood are purely for show. There's also plenty of chrome that's all in very good condition. The black vinyl roof gives it a formal look, and it, too, is in great shape.

A custom black interior combines original-style patterns with more luxurious cloth seating surfaces on Challenger bucket seats. Not strictly authentic, but certainly in tune with what the GTX was trying to achieve and a big step up from the original vinyl. The upscale GTX vibe continues with woodgraining on the dash, a lot of bright trim, including on the center console, and a fairly complete set of gauges with clear markings. The factory Music Master AM/8-track radio remains in place, and although it's not working any longer I think I'd keep it in place just for the 1960s look. The door panels with their woodgrain inserts look new, as do the carpets, with everything else showing proper care and not a lot of use. The sizable trunk includes a correct mat, jack assembly, and a full-sized spare tire with period inflator bottle.

Mopar fans will probably take a quick glance at the VIN and be pleased to see that this is a real-deal L-code car that came with a 440 "high performance" engine. Dressed in Mopar finned valve covers and air cleaner, it makes impressive power and torque using an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and intake manifold. The combination is very streetable, with endless big block torque available at virtually any speed and the 440 is one big block that doesn't mind revving a bit. The engine bay is nicely detailed, not totally stock, but clean and interesting to look at and 100% operational. It's backed by a 727 TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic, and the factory-issue 8.75-inch rear end out back. A recent Flowmaster dual exhaust system sounds downright wicked, and while you're looking around under there, note that the floors are in remarkably good condition and have been painted to match the bodywork. Staggered Coys alloys look sporty and carry 235/55/18 front and 275/40/20 rear performance radials.

The GTX remains a favorite among Mopar faithful, and with the fantastic looks, big block power, and tasteful upgrades, this is a car you can own and drive with pride. Call today!
