This numbers matching Rallye Red 440 Six Pack GTX is the recipient
of a full rotisserie restoration by noted Mopar experts Roger
Gibson and Restorations by Julius. One of 73 built, the car was
complete, very solid and driven prior to restoration and retained
many of its original parts during it transformation to better than
new. The car's option list includes 440 Six Pack, console floor
shift, heavy duty automatic transmission, Air Grabber hood, Vinyl
roof, front and rear spoilers, right side door mirror, dual exhaust
and hood tie down pins.
The restored to original exterior in Rallye Red with white vinyl top is as new or better, having been expertly executed by acknowledged experts in the restoration of classic Mopar cars. Since restoration, the GTX has served primarily as a show car and museum display, and its fit and finish reflect this care and limited exposure to outdoors and public use. Very close scrutiny reveals small and easily made corrections typically resulting from transport and storage, not readily detected.
Engine Bay Condition
The GTX engine bay and drivetrain are impeccably finished and detailed as new, with all original components present and working. The rare and numbers matching 440 Six Pack with heavy duty automatic transmission option, along with all ancillaries show excellent finish and correct presentation. Topped by a rare and operational Air Grabber hood, this drivetrain and engine bay are concurrent with the car's very accurate restoration.
Restored to original white, with center floor shift console, the GTX retains much of its freshly restored appearance, showing little use. Since completion of its restoration, the car has been primarily used as a show and museum display car, and the interior reflects the light use. Under scrutiny, very minor and correctible detractions are visible, but in whole, the GTX interior is as new or better.
Chassis and Undercarriage Condition
Chassis and undercarriage remain as restored to new condition, with a clean and well detailed appearance. All components are restored to factory new or better. There is no road use evident and no deterioration from exposure, supported by the car's care and museum display role since restoration.
From the final year of the true Mopar muscle car era, this 1971 GTX with 440ci engine and Six pack option, with automatic transmission is truly rare as one of 73 such cars produced. This is a first year redesign of the B-body platform, but the last year for the GTX nameplate, making this a one year only model. Overall fit and finish are highest quality and present very well. Desirability for this rare, end of the line car in attractive finish and desirable option list points to a GTX with high collectability and a true investment level car.
