Exterior Description

The current owner acquired this 1968 Plymouth GTX over ten years ago and has completely restored it over that time. The car was a solid, ust free example to begin with. The entire car was repainted in 2006 and while is does have nearly 3,000 road miles on it, he still shows excellently. Close inspection will yield a few detectible touch-ups commensurate with road use. During the restoration, he owner found and replaced all the incorrect items that were evident. He almost invariablyused 1968 OEM parts and new OEM bolt and fastener kits. The GTX center is NOS, he grill and rear finish panel are restored OEM units that are used as a guide for restoring all the '68 GTX grilles that he has restored for others.


Interior Description

When the car was repainted, t was also the opportune time to restore the interior. The factory two tone green bucket seat interior was located and installed, wapping out for the black Roadrunner interior a previous owner swapped in earlier in the car's life. All the trim and high touch surfaces are in outstanding condition, leaming and crisp. Gauges and switch gear were also restored to factory new condition.


To provide reliable tunes for the open road, he radio selected was an AM/FM from Vintage Auto Radio backed by dual modern speakers. The owner has the original AM radio and re-coned single speaker. Both are included in the sale and the owner either install the original setup or send them along to the new owner. Radio aside, he only reproduction parts used in the interior were the console and console wiring harness.


Engine Bay Description

The engine compartment was last OE detailed in 2008, he engine itself received a complete engine rebuild by Julius Steuer in 2014, pec'd around the Engel .570 cam. A balance card is included with the car. The non-original '69 date coded vintage block was leaking from an old weld repair. So, hey elected to employ a fully jacketed 426 HEMI World block to replace it. The intake manifold and air cleaner are all OEM and the carbs are date-coded OEM Carter AFB's, estored by Dick Katter. The OEM correct 1968 Prestolite dual-point unit, itted with a hidden Pertronix electronic ignition inside. The original points distributor parts come with the car.
The69 Date Coded A833 HEMI Spectransmission was rebuilt by Hemi George, nationally respected builder. Yes, he car was built in October of 1967 and should have an Inland shifter, ut they are so sloppy that the owner instead used a restored Hurstshifter that would have come with the car starting 1/1/1968.


Chassis Description

The undercarriage and suspension was initially restored in 2006 along with the rest of the car. Frame connectors from its racing days are still welded in so thoroughly that removing them would have ruined the original rear torque boxes and possibly the rear frame extensions, o they were left in. The benefit is an even more stable ride and chassis stiffness on a platform already famous for it.

Re-restoration of the rear suspension was completed in 2009, euniting the car with a Dana 60 rear-end as was specified on the factory fender tag. Swapping the incorrect 8 ¾ Sure-grip out for a date-coded 3.54:1 Dana 60 also meant a new drive-shaft so the rear-end would be swaged as it was from the factory. A reproduction stock-style exhaust from Accurate Exhaustwith high-flow mufflers were also installed. LISTEN TO HER HEMI PURRRR!
