TRUE RS CODE GTX, BEAUTIFUL RESTORATION, BUILT 440 BIG BLOCK, AUTO, 4 DISCS, PS
The Plymouth GTX was often known as the gentleman's muscle car, and one glance at this attractive 1970 Plymouth GTX hardtop explains why. With a stout 440, a nice Plum Crazy Purple paint job, and the GTX's luxurious interior, it's rapid transit for the guy who has already arrived.
Mopar fans love the high-impact colors and Plum Crazy Purple might just be the most famous of all. It's definitely bright, but the metallic base and the way it clings to the bodywork make it one of the most popular choices, both then and today. Nicely restored to stock specs and in a factory color combination, this GTX looks simply fantastic in the sunlight. The bodywork is first-rate, and you can see how well it was done just by checking out the ripple-free quarter panels, which are about seven feet long. The paint has an appropriate gloss that shines up nicely and while it has been driven a bit since it was finished, this is still a car that generates a ton of attention everywhere it goes. Other things, like the completely irreplaceable GTX grille, the bright chrome bumpers and stainless wheel arch trim, and the always cool GTX emblems in that faux scoop in the quarters give this car an awesome Mopar muscle car look. You also get a hood with proper stripes, and it's always cool when the Air Grabber hood scoop pops up, suggesting that things are about to get interesting.
The interior is extremely tasteful, wearing black upholstery that looks suitably upscale for the GTX's mission. Both the front and rear seats have been restored with fresh seat covers and new foam underneath, and the buckets have a contemporary look that belies their age. The dash and instrument panel are equally nice, and you'll dig the 150 MPH speedometer, even if you'll never use it all. There's a column-mounted tachometer as well as a full set of auxiliary gauges under the dash, and the original Music Master radio remains in the dash, with a newer AM/FM/CD head unit hidden in the glove box. There's also a cool Grant GT steering wheel that feels more substantial in your hands and a Hurst Quarter-Stick shifter manages the Torqueflite underneath. Open the trunk and you'll discover a beautifully finished storage compartment complete with a new mat that's almost too pretty to use.
The thumping 440 cubic inch V8 under the hood definitely brings the thunder, but it's so neatly detailed that you'll want to park it and show it off. Choices, choices. The internals consist of a forged steel crank, 10.75:1 forged pistons, a Crane cam, and a set of Edelbrock aluminum cylinder heads to top it off. There's also a Holley double-pumper carburetor, electronic ignition system, and an Aeromotive electric fuel pump to keep it fed. The finned valve covers look great and we have to say the purple engine bay would look awesome no matter what's living inside. A 727 TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission with a 3400 RPM stall torque converter is a great choice with the GTX, and it spins an 8.75 rear with acceleration-friendly 3.91 gears on a limited slip. Long-tuve headers feed a rumbling dual exhaust system and there's a disc brake at all four corners, which is a very welcome upgrade on something this fast. Polished Torque Thrust wheels are always the right choice, and these wear 205/60/15 front and 275/50/15 rear BFGoodrich radials.
Tastefully modified and very well built, this GTX is both a smart investment and a ton of fun to drive. Call today!
