Only 1,026 GTX convertibles made total in 1968. This one is nicely
EXTERIOR: The body is in excellent shape- straight and smooth. I
don't see any bubbling. The metal flake is laid out evenly, the
clear coat is polished smooth and glossy. It it deep looking. There
are a few minor flaws I didn't even see until I inspected the car.
The door jambs are clean and painted glossy. Weatherstrips are
good. The satin black stripes on the hood are painted on. The 15
inch Magnum 500 wheels are new and are extra wide. They have some
really meaty Goodyear tires on them. The power convertible top
looks real nice, has correct Mopar grain. The pads on the underside
are disintegrating. In front it has a nice original grill showing
minor patina, the bumper looks new. Chrome turn signal indicators
and top of the fenders have been rechromed, wheel well moldings
look new. The vent window pillars, mirror and handles are real nice
original with some freckles. In back the bumper looks rechromed,
the tail panel is in excellent shape.
INTERIOR: New upholstery on the seats and they're nice and poofy
with good cushions. It also has a brand new console and shifter.
The lights and shift indicator have not been purchased for the
console. The carpet is new. I'm looking at an exceptionally clean
dash area. The gauges, lenses, wood grain, soft trim are excellent.
It does have a factory am 8-track radio and a factory tachometer.
There is an aftermarket temp gauge down below the dash. It has a
new custom tilt column with the factory steering wheel. Door panels
are in real good shape. The window cranks, handles, dash knobs are
all in good original condition. Interior light on the dash
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The original fender tag is still attached and
the # on the core support matches it. Features include power
steering and brakes. Overall it looks real nice when I opened the
hood. The engine bay metal is real clean and straight, I don't see
any signs of damage or rust. It's all painted glossy, including
under the hood. The engine itself has been painted up nicely. The
air cleaner was restored. It has Mopar hoses and clamps, the shroud
is proper. It is upgraded with headers. The washer bottle is hooked
up. Steering linkage going into the steering gear box is new.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It is actually very nice in the trunk. I'm
assuming the trunk floor is new because it looks pristine, but they
must have put it in it factory seams. The quarter panels look to be
original, I don't see any cuts or splices. The whole inside of the
trunk, the jamb and under the trunk lid are painted green with a
clear coat finish. The rubber mat, the weather strip, stickers are
new. The jack is restored. It has a new Magnum wheel and a brand
new BF Goodrich tire. The tail light housings, latches and wiring

bushings, shocks, swaybar links etc. In back the leaf springs are
good, shocks look new. Brakes were redone, hoses and rear brake
lines were replaced. E-brake cables are hooked up. Bottom of the

mufflers, has correct tips in back. Fuel tank and sending unit were
replaced. Overall solid floors and frame rails.
