Vehicle Description

Ladies and Gentlemen, Gateway Classic Cars of Kansas City is very, very excited to offer for sale a 1968 Plymouth GTX! For 1968, the hot new Road Runner was anchoring Plymouth's muscle car rungs, a familiar name returned to top off Plymouth's midsize muscle car ladder. For its second season in 1968, the Plymouth GTX moved to the same redesigned Belvedere platform used by the Road Runner. While even a loaded Road Runner looked pretty plain on the outside, the GTX dressed its part with standard chrome wheel-lip moldings, tail-panel brightwork, and double side stripes. And where the Road Runner started with a fleet-grade interior, the GTX came with the well-appointed Sport Satellite cabin featuring shiny details and fake woodgrain. Instead of adopting the 383-cid V-8 as its base engine, the 1968 Plymouth GTX carried over its '67 powertrains. The 375-bhp Magnum 440-cid four-barrel was standard. TorqueFlite automatic, a $206 extra on the Road Runner, was standard on the GTX, and the four-speed manual was a no-cost alternative. Both cars had similar suspension upgrades and wide-oval rubber; front disc brakes and a limited-slip diff were shared options. "As a performance car, the GTX has few equals," concluded Car Life. "With the 440 engine, it offers as much performance-per-dollar as anything on the market, and more than most." The 440, which wasn't offered on the Road Runner, was easier to keep in tune. And unlike the rev-hungry Hemi, the big wedge churned out a surplus of low-end torque for unparalleled response on the street. Our beautiful Matador Red GTX with black interior is a stunner, indeed! Originally ordered a radio delete car, the only tune you need is the one produced by a warmed-up 440 V-8, balanced and bored 60 over! Plus, the rebuilt automatic transmission dutifully spins the driveline to deliver torque to the Sure Grip, 8 � rear end with factory 3.23 gear ratio. So, If you are brave enough to stomp down on the loud pedal on this GTX, make sure the road ahead, far ahead, is clear. Other than awesome motor, awesome body, awesome interior, awesome everything else, there is not a too much to say about this Mopar. It is a 1968 Plymouth GTX with a 440 motor! That's enough for most. We rarely get the opportunity to offer-up a late 60's Mopar to make someone's dream a reality. We have one now, but a buyer will be calling soon to claim this beautiful GTX. Why not you? Call Russ or Brad in Kansas City at Gateway Classic Cars. Our number is (913) 815-1340. You can reach us Monday thru Saturday, 9 a.m. thru 5 p.m. cst.
