Finished in Bronze Fire Metallic over a black interior, this rotisserie restored 1969 Plymouth GTX is the perfect candidate for your shows and driving pleasure. Back in the day these were some of the quickest muscle cars on the pavement with their torquey 440 CI Super Commando motors. Fast forward to more than 40 years later, there aren’t a whole lot of these Plymouths left on the street and are quite a bit rarer than some of the other dime-a-dozen muscle cars that you will see around town and at the shows.
The GTX features beautiful paint, trim and chrome. The car received a bare metal re-finish and almost all of the trim is new to give it that sparkle. The car has excellent lines and very straight panels, especially given the length of the quarter panels and doors. There is more of that gorgeous Bronze Fire Metallic in the engine compartment which has been finely detailed with all of the correct MOPAR gear. The VIN-plate-matching-serial-number is still stamped on the radiator core support and is a nice show of originality. The interior is all new from Legendary and is in excellent condition through and through. Everything down to the window cranks and handles have been replaced and it is quite crisp. During the restoration, the entire wiring harness was replaced with a correct and brand new MOPAR harness so you won’t find old, or poorly modified electrical gear on this GTX.
The engine, transmission and rear end have been completely gone through during the restoration. The 440 motor is a stump puller and really moves through the RPM range. The torque is what you dream about when you think "muscle car" and the top end of the motor really pulls hard. The engine is currently equipped with a newer carb, but the car also comes with the original carb for the motor as well. The engine is a date code correct 440 RB block but it is not the original that came with the car. The 727 torque flight transmission is tight and handles the power of the motor well and the limited slip differential lays down the rubber at will.
The car handles nice on the side streets and out on the open road. The GTX is a great cruiser on the highway, and the radial tires offer much better traction and handling than the original bias ply units. Without any wild modifications from stock form, this car remains practical and is a real show stopper.
