Muscle cars were at their peak in 1969. There was a buffet to
choose from - compact, mid-size or full size. The Plymouth
Belvedere GTX was one of MOPAR's strongest. Based on the 'B' body
platform and fitted with a powerful big-block drivetrain, this
Plymouth was a perfect example of muscle - to quote the '68 sales
brochure: "GTX - the Boss is back, leading off the all-new mid-size
5 from Plymouth with a totally new skin from top to tread." Based
on the data tag, our 1968 second-gen Belvedere is a true GTX (RS23
code) that received a full restoration in 1986. The exterior was
resprayed in stunning 2-stage Red Metalflake with GTX strips and
hood scoops. A restored bucket seat black vinyl interior (code S6X)
is in excellent condition. There is a full console w/shifter, nice
carpeting, tinted windows and a factory AM sound system to provide
tunes. This GTX is powered by what is believed to be the original
engine (code 83). If so, it is the RB-series 'tall' 440 High
Performance equipped with a 'Six Pack' 3x2 setup of Holley carbs
and fresh-air intake. This 'Six-Pack' option cost an unimaginable
$119.00 back in '68 and allowed the Wedge to produce 390bhp w/490
lb/ft of torque. The 440 is said to have been rebuilt and appears
to be in stock configuration. It is backed by a Chrysler 727
TorqueFlite automatic transmission. Factory automatic GTXs were
equipped with a MOPAR 8-3/4" Suretrac differential and 3.23:1
gears. The chassis is fitted with manual steering and manual
4-wheel drum brakes w/dual master. Our GTX strikes a nice stance
with torsion bar front suspension with HD front sway bar. Polished
14" Magnum 500 wheels mount Daytona performance radial tires. This
is a rare MOPAR. Study the photos - this GTX is impressive. ALL
