For sale by owner is a beautiful fully restored 1968 Plymouth GTX 2-door vinyl hardtop coupe equipped with the powerful 440ci (7. 2L) OHV V8 engine and the 3-speed A727 Torqueflyte automatic transmission. This best of the best Mopar has undergone a complete nut and bolt Concourse rotisserie restoration approximately 4 years ago and has been driven about 100 miles a year since just to keep it in top running condition for when I take it to the various car shows in my area. The restoration performed left nothing un-turned and the attention to detail is amazing. from the exterior to the interior and everything in between. The engine and transmission are original and have been rebuilt with performance parts and the car is finished in its original color combo and all options according to the original fender tag. I owned basically the same car in my youth and its like traveling back in time when I get behind the wheel of this one. I trailered the car whenever the car show I was attending was over 30 miles away. I own a car dealership and this has been in my personal collection for around 4 years. Because I am a dealer I can accept bank loan checks as a form of payment and if the buyer is qualified I can help secure them financing through one of the lenders we utilize with my dealership. Just email me if you have any questions about payment and financing and I'll do my best to help. I employ 3 full time mechanics and 2 of my mechanics specialize in restoring classic cars. Mopars in particular. and they have helped me to keep this car in perfect running condition. It is a true piece of American muscle and a real joy to own and drive. Some of the things this car has are: fully rebuilt original 440ci 4-barrel carb V8 engine balanced and blue-printed for performance. fully rebuilt original A727 Torqueflyte 3-speed automatic transmission with a performance shift kit. rebuilt original Dana 60 rear differential. rebuilt 750cfm Holley 4-barrel performance carb. Edelbrock performance camshaft and lifters. Edelbrock performance intake manifold. original 440 "wedge" cylinder heads have been rebuilt and ported and polished for performance. MSD pro-billet distributor. MSD ignition control. new set of Centerline aluminum ultra-light rims narrow in the front and wide on the rear giving it that true muscle car look. 2- 165/80/R15 Kumho 771 steel belted radials on the front. 2- 295/65/R15 Mickey Thompson ET Street DOT Slicks on the rear. dual 3" exhaust from manifolds to bumper (sounds amazing). and I added separate gauges for oil pressure. water temperature. and electric amps which can all be easily removed and didn't compromise anything in the interior with installation as they are mounted under the dash. I added these gauges as a redundancy since the factory dash has "dummy" warning lights for all of these things and the lights do function but I wanted to verify everything and it is prudent to know the condition of all these measurements when you are driving a vehicle worth as much as this. That way if anything was going wrong you could tell from the gauges rather than driving it and being unaware and accidentally ruining the original engine which would be really tragic. The factory radio works as well as all the gauges and tachometer. The tires I bought brand new 2 years ago so they have a few hundred miles at most. the front disc brakes and rear drum brakes were replaced 3 years ago so they have at most 300 miles. Interior and exterior of the car are in excellent condition no blemishes whatsoever. I have added some performance parts to the vehicle if the buyer is interested in the original OEM parts instead I can get ahold of all them as well. my brother stocks nearly every single piece of any car produced by Dodge. Chrysler. Plymouth from 1965-1972 which makes owning these old Mopars alot easier. and he is a great resource to get knowledge from for as far as what is original and things along those lines. If you are interested in getting the original parts to return the car back to absolute perfect stock just email me and we can discuss and make arrangements. I have meticulously maintained this car and it runs and drives perfectly and could be used as a daily driver if someone so chose to. its that reliable. I own an indoor car and boat storage facility and this car has always been stored indoors year round. In the spring each year when I first get it out of storage I always put it through my shop and service the car and tune it up for the up coming car show season. I always use the very top of the line in any maintenance items that are used or installed on the vehicle. I have considerably more invested in this car then what I'm looking to get out of it. The cost to restore a car like this is great if you wish to get them to a condition like this which is basically fully restored and 100% reliably drive-able. If you wish to own a car like this let me give you some advice buy one like this that is already completed and ready to enjoy. it is much cheaper then restoring the vehicle yourself. The only reason I am looking to sell my GTX is because I have a few other old cars in my garage and I'm currently in the process of restoring an old Challenger so I decided I needed to sell one of my cars to be able to complete some of my other projects. plus I am currently looking to buy a large boat so I need to turn some of my toys into money. I am certain the buyer will be pleased with this car. I am rather picky about things and I love the car it is fun to own and fun to drive plus it will never go down in value so its a pretty solid investment and alot more fun then just having some money in the bank. I took the car to the annual Mopar show in Carlisle Pennsylvania 2 years ago and they have a rear wheel dyno at the show that you could drive your car onto and have them test what your car is turning for horsepower at the rear wheels. I did it that year and the GTX surprisingly topped out at 511 horsepower. I own the vehicle outright there is no lien against the vehicle whatsoever. and I have the transferable registration for the vehicle. The car is 100% legal for the highways. its inspected. registered. and insured in New York State so if the buyer wants a test drive that is not an issue at all. I'm sure they will be pleased with it. I will give the buyer a 14-day money back guarantee on the purchase of the car from the day you pick it up. If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason during that period simply return the car to me in the condition it left in and I will refund every dollar. I want the buyer to be happy with the purchase and not feel like anyone got the best of anyone. I've had that situation happen before to myself and its not a good way to conduct business if you ask me. Obviously if the car is damaged in anyway we will have to discuss any adjustments that would need to be made to the refund but I highly doubt there would be any issues with the car because it is built to handle the power and its has been meticulously maintained. so please don't run it into a tree on accident and try to get a refund from the purchase this is something that you would need to take up with your insurance provider. Aside from that I am a very reasonable person and I am willing to work with the buyer if they have any issues or concerns. If there is anything else you would like to know about the vehicle. or about anything else for that matter. please feel free to email or call me and I'll do my best to answer. It is a fantastic old Mopar that I'll hate to see leave but I'm confident it's next owner will love it as much I did.
