1970 Plymouth GTX --

You're looking at a true Mopar dream machine. This is a 1970 Plymouth GTX that's factory-correct inside and out, and has a mildly built 440 big block under the hood while the included #'s matching 440 stays safe. So when you see a combination of rarity, beauty, and power, you know you've found muscle car heaven. Take time to appreciate everything this GTX offers. The straight lines are especially critical on Mopar's iconic block B-body cars,... because while these were the midsize offering, the stylists knew how to give them the look of unflinching full-size authority. But the sheet metal is only part of the story. Bright Blue Metallic was on Plymouth's color pallet in 1970, but it never looked this good from the factory. There has been an investment in a modern metallic paint, and a professional hand applying it. So, now all the subtle creases of the bodywork really pop when the sunlight hits this super-straight coupe. The only thing that shines brighter are the extra-wide mirror-like bumpers and iconic Mag wheels with classic Goodyear Polyglas tires. As a true muscle machine, it came directly from the factory with aggressive features like the power bulge hood and those large side scoops. And as a GTX this is not only sporty, but premium, too, so this one had options like the black vinyl roof that so nicely matches the exterior striping package. When you have a pillarless hardtop like this, you know you're going to love cruising with all the windows down. That's why it's also great to have the interior coordinate with the black vinyl roof for a full uniform presentation. The driver and passenger get high back vinyl bucket seats with a comfortable center console in-between. The rest of the interior is fresh and clean, which makes it all feel like a 1970s time capsule. The wood paneling matches the black color quite nicely, and all of this is a great reminder that the upper-level GTX was a true gentleman's coupe. And the new Dakota Digital gauges, do their part to add freshness to the interior without being overbearing. By the way, the original cluster comes with the car. Power comes from the biggest engine in Chrysler's stable, the feared 440 cubic-inch big block. The original V8 was rated at 375 hp by the factory should make you weak in the knees thinking about the inclusion and the rarity. The replacement motor has been mildly built for a little extra umph when you want it. Everything looks outstanding from the big bold block, to the Super Commando air topper. This monster motor inhales deeply through a Holley four-barrel carburetor feeding an Edelbrock Performer intake manifold and it exhales with a ferocious growl thanks to the aftermarket headers and stainless H-pipe dual exhaust. The Torqueflite A727 three-speed automatic transmission is stout enough to handle the extra power when it's time to unleash the big block's fury, and it's also calm enough for everyday cruising. The same goes for the power steering, power brakes, and front end sway bar to create a fine anytime package. Plymouth didn't build many examples of these serious muscle machine GTXs in 1970 like this one, and we bet it will be near impossible to find one this complete ever again. So don't miss an opportunity of a lifetime, call today!
