If you're in the market for some solid, nvestment grade metal that'll continue to rise in value, ere's your next prospect!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Assembled at Chrysler's Lynch Road facility in May of 1969, his spectacular pentastar is the beneficiary of a professional restoration that appears to be holding up very well. During that thorough rebuild, he car's straight body, hich includes solid-closing doors on top of great panel alignment, as massaged into virtually flawless surfaces. Once those surfaces were completely clean and fully prepped, sinister coat of correct Platinum Metallic 2-stage was buffed to a glossy shine. And, ccording to the car's accompanying documentation, his clean Plymouth now rolls as a precise replication of its spring 1969 appearance with the exception of a basic Black interior.

ENGINE

Toss this coupe's light hood and you'll find an original, 26 cubic inch Hemi V8 that's authenticated by a famous 2468330 casting number and matching partial VIN. As Plymouth's top option for power hungry gearheads, hrysler's legendary elephant block utilizes cast iron heads, n oversquare bore, forged steel crank, orged steel rods, orged aluminum pistons and a hydraulic cam to twist stout 10.25 to 1 compression into a stated 425 horsepower and 490 lb./ft. of torque. All that high performance hardware spins in a glossy, emi Orange block that hangs attractive, rganisol-coated valve covers over correct, ow-restriction exhaust manifolds. A perfect mixture of fuel and air is supplied by correct Carter carburetors and a correct aluminum intake. Compression is sparked by pliable wires that are snapped onto a correct points distributor. And resultant combustion is cooled by a big, 6-inch radiator that's fitted with Mopar-branded hoses via old school squeeze clamps. Visually, he car's Platinum engine compartment is clean and understated... Well, s understated as a classic Hemi can be. The big mill performs as well as it ever has. And naturally, etails like factory decals, MoPar-topped battery and a familiar Chrysler washer reservoir have been professionally restored or completely replicated.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Slide under this solid B-Body and you'll find a lucid chassis that's fully sorted and ready for the road. Bright silver paint highlights exceptionally clean floors. Behind the Hemi, correct A833 4-speed is tight and shifts like new. That stalwart gearbox sends power to a correct Dana 60 axle, hich spins a Sure Grip differential around 3.54 gears. Naturally, hat spirited driveline hangs in a completely restored suspension, hich is fitted with Gas-A-Just shocks and factory power steering. Stops come courtesy of big drum brakes. Exhaust is handled by large-diameter tubes, hich bend around an H-shaped crossover and Flowmaster dual-chamber mufflers. And all this MoPar goodness rolls on Platinum Metallic wheels, hich twist 205/75R15 Coker Classic redlines around Plymouth Division center caps.

INTERIOR

Swivel this Plymouth's level doors and you'll find a familiar Black interior that's functional, traightforward and very livable. A retrofitted front bucket and rear bench seating combination is wrapped in pliable vinyl covers that display hardly any signs of severe wear. Below those seats, tain-free carpet frames a correct Hurst shifter. At the sides of that carpet, lack door panels perfectly complement black door frames. In front of those panels, "road runner" branded dash seats standard telemetry above a cool Chrysler Solid State. In front of the driver, simple steering wheel spins a correct horn bar around a colorful Road Runner centerpiece. And behind the passengers, nicely finished trunk hides a correct jack and spare tire between a plaid mat and new decklid decal.
