Description of 1968 Plymouth GTX

Plymouth got a two-for-one out of their Road Runner/GTX twins, ut they played distinctly different roles. The Road Runner was all about bargain performance, hile the GTX was its more sophisticated brother designed to combat the likes of Buick and Mercury. With that in mind, his 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, he subtle GTX still has presence. Finished in Turbine Bronze, hich was an available color in 1968, t's a subtle, ttractive 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, ut the traditional styling cues are still there, rom the sleek hardtop profile to the crease in the quarter panel. The sheetmetal is quite straight and clean, uggesting a solid car was used as the foundation for this GTX tribute. The conversion is quite thorough, ith proper black rocker stripes and GTX emblems on the grille as well as just behind the doors, lthough the HEMI callouts on the hood are purely for show. There's also plenty of chrome that's all in very good condition, nd I have no idea where they found the GTX-exclusive tail panel, hich is virtually unobtainable today. The black vinyl roof gives it a formal look, nd it, oo, s in great shape.A custom black interior combines original-style patterns with more luxurious cloth seating surfaces on Challenger bucket seats. Not strictly authentic, ut 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, lot of bright trim, ncluding on the center console, nd a fairly complete set of gauges with clear markings. The factory Music Master AM/8-track radio remains in place, nd 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, s do the carpets, ith everything else showing proper care and not a lot of use. The sizable trunk includes a correct mat, ack assembly, nd 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, t makes impressive power and torque using an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and intake manifold. The combination is very streetable, ith 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, ot totally stock, ut clean and interesting to look at and 100% operational. It's backed by a 727 TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic, nd the factory-issue 8.75-inch rear end out back. A recent Flowmaster dual exhaust system sounds downright wicked, nd while you're looking around under there, ote 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, nd with the fantastic looks, ig block power, nd tasteful upgrades, his is a car you can own and drive with pride.
