1969 Plymouth GTX - ** SOLD **

This GTX was just removed from a bubble after 3 years of rotisserie restoration.  It has been driven 1 mile since the restoration.   It was completely dismantled, blasted and installed on a rotisserie.  Being a Fort Worth, Texas car to start with, rust was minimal or none.

This car has been restored to high O.E. Standards, not the amateur restoration that many shops think is correct.  For example, non-knowledgeable restorers think the under carriage is suppose to be painted body color.  They have no knowledge that these cars were ran thru a primer pit, thus the undercarriage is gray primer, not body color.  This car, with a little cleaning, could do well at the Mopar Nationals Show Field.  It is not a O.E. Certification vehicle.  Many shops do not even know the level of quality for O.E. Certification, much less restore cars to such. 

Basic restoration included new front suspension, shocks, all bolt on items detailed, high quality engine rebuild, transmission rebuild, rear end rebuild, new exhaust system, correct exhaust manifolds, correct carb, correct dated plug wires, correct coil, new fuel lines, new fuel pump, new distributor, new voltage regulator, 055 radiator, new clutch fan, new shroud, correct air cleaner, restored grill & head light bezels, new emblems, new Legendary interior, new head liner, replaced dash pad, new package tray, and the list goes on & on..

Some of the higher end items which were done include a restored steering wheel ($750.00), restored seat belts by Snake-Oyl ($1100.00), re-chromed trunk panel & tail light bezels by Paul's Chrome ($3150.00), restored carb by Concourse Creations ($415.00), recore radiator ($299.00), restored gauges by Clock Doc ($1475.00), new interior from Legendary ($1000.00), NOS head rests from Legendary ($550.00), and the list goes on & on....

The engine is the correct 1969 440 from a 1969 GTX.  It has the full VIN stamped in the block, just not the original one for this GTX!  It is a high end rebuild including JE pistons & rings, reconditioned rods, turned crank (balanced to 1 gram), double roller timing chain, factory spec cam, 906 heads completely redone.  Runs very well!!!

The paint is new F9 Paint.  It looks black most of the time.  It's quality is average.  Not perfect, but nice.

Upon completion of the restoration, this GTX was put in a storage bubble where it has sat for the last three years.  It was started and ran up to operating temperature on a monthly basis.  Being in the bubble, it only requires basic toothbrush & Q-Tip cleaning if going to a National Show.

The wheels are original magnum wheels with original F-70 X 14 red line tires.  As these tires are 40 years old, they would work for show, but really need to be replaced if car is to be driven on the highway.

As I do not believe there is a real (prefect) #1 car in existence, as there never has been a car that went thru O.E. Certification with no deducts, I would rate this car as a #2. (Many people would rate it higher!)

This car is very comparable with other 1969 GTX's which are for sale from $69,995 to $125,000.
