1969 Plymouth GTX
This is one of the finest Mopars we have ever had in the shop...period. To inspect the car for a third party, I would rate it at just under Concours condition and that is being pretty critical. We are continuing to knock off the small little details here at the shop to make it a full #1 rated vehicle. From a rareness standpoint, it is off the radar special and we have been unable to find one just like it anywhere. The car has been Galen Govier document certified and registered. All of the original paperwork including the broadcast sheet are in great condition and also go with the car. This is a fully documented (with pictures) frame-off restoration on an all numbers matching '69 GTX with a rare set of options. While there are a lot of bucket seat, 4-speed Roadrunners and Belvederes (which this was based on) out there, the "executive" GTX was most commonly outfitted with a bench seat and column shift. There are not many out the optioned like this and even less, if any (for sale), in this color combination. I won't list everything that is new or replaced because everything has been from the top down. There were only a little more than 17,000 ever produced in 1969 and only a fraction remain.
The vehicle is powered by its completely rebuilt 440ci Super Commando motor pulling 375 horsepower with 4-barrel carburetor through an Air Grabber hood. That is linked to a rare, perfect shifting 4-speed transmission with a period correct Hurst pistol grip shifter. This is one of the things that keeps it from Concours condition. This is a great shifter for the car but should you desire it, we will include and install the correct round ball and shaft with the sale. The stock rear end is a Dana 60 Sure-Grip with a 3:54.1 gear ratio.
The exterior is a frame-off restoration with every nut, bolt and clamp restored or replaced. It was taken down to bare steel and repaired where needed with same. An immaculate two-tone paint job was applied in the car's original colors, Frost Green (which appears silver except in direct sunlight when the faint green appears) and matte black. We do have the white stripe to apply on the rear of the car and will apply it for the new owner as part of the deal if wanted as well. The car sits on the original 15? Magnums with period correct, brand new Firestone bias tires complete with red walls.
The interior is all original and done in a rare white. It is just as it rolled of the showroom floor with everything restored or replaced from the headliner down to the carpet. Even the rear ashtrays are intact and like new. The center console, which is typically difficult to get right, is just as it would have been. Again, we will install the correct Hurst shifter with ball, should you desire the car to have that, as opposed to the current pistol grip. The car is equipped with all of the working gauges, including the tachometer, in the dash right in front of the driver behind the wood grain steering wheel. It was also factory equipped with an AM/8-track player both of which work perfectly. Don't miss your opportunity to add this rare car to your collection.

The Plymouth GTX was first offered in 1967 as a performance variation of the standard two-door Belvedere, and it combined performance and style.
