440 Magnum V8
You don\'t often get a second chance in life, so consider this carefully. This 1970 Plymouth GTX is the real deal, a golden beast from Detroit\'s heyday. Positioned initially as the gentleman\'s muscle car, the GTX was seen as the refined alternative of the MOPAR fraternity. Think of it as the body builder bulging out of a tailored suit. 440 cubic inches of big block Chrysler Wedge motor put down 375 of Chryslers finest horses, paired to a three speed automatic. This 440 featured a 4-barrel carb, mild cam and dual exhausts. It also featured one of the best names ever bestowed on an engine, the Super Commando. Let\'s start with the fender tag and VIN breakdown first proving the authenticity of the GTX.

The Mopar expert invested over 5 years into this restoration and carries with it over $72,000 in just restoration receipts alone. First she was stripped to the bare metal and a complete rotisserie restoration was completed. Any concerns with rust were immediately taken care of with new quarters, trunk floor, doors, hood, and trunk lid. The restoration culminated by finishing the classic B-Body in the original Poly Gold Metallic, paint code FY6 – with the correct accompanying matte stripes lining the sides and hood. Inside you\'ll be met with a period-correct interior, with a wooden dash, and center console. Sitting in newly minted vinyl clad bucket seats, you\'ll find an assortment of options. Power steering, brakes and a clean Vintage A/C air conditioning unit make this muscle car a blast to behind the wheel. Inside the new theme continues with a new package tray, carpet, headliner, door handles, rebuilt original gauges, new dash, new foam, new mouldings, new glass, new antenna, new seat covers, door panels, new arm rests... and the list goes on. Completely finished in September of 2014, this professionally restored GTX has just over 3000 miles since the extensive 5-year restoration. This is a stellar example of a hard to find GTX – they don\'t get better than this; if you hesitated in 1970, don\'t let this one get away. DOES IT WORK?
