 1970 Plymouth GTX factory equipped with a Hemi-box 4-speed transmission and a Pistol-Grip Hurst shifter and backed with a Dana 60 rear-end with 3. 73 Richmond gear. This GTX has been restored to the highest level and restored to last. This was not just a cosmetic restoration. This vehicle was restored with all new or rebuilt components so the vehicle is like a brand new. The vehicle was placed on a rotisserie sand-blasted to bare metal and then coated with PPG Epoxy primer as the base to all body work needed. The only rust that was in the vehicle when restoration began was a quarter size spot on the LT quarter at the top of the wheel opening. the RT quarter behind the wheel at the bottom. The rust was removed completely and new panels put into place by a professional restoration specialist. The trunk pan and rear window also had some minor rust and all metal was replaced in these areas as well.
The vehicle was finished in PPG Concept line products in a Single-stage Urethane and the color was matched to be exactly as the tone was from the factory. All black trim and suspension components were finished in the correct colors and the correct degree of gloss for each item. The body and paint are flawless and perfect. All the trim on the vehicle was sent off to Nashville to be redone to perfection including all pot-metal items.
The interior has a rare geometric cloth insert and is a bench seat up front which was only offered as an option for the 1970 model.    Legendary supplied all the interior including new door panels. handles. screw kit. carpet. seat covers. etc. The interior was installed by a customer interior specialist in my area with over 50 years of experience.    I have checked the V. I. N. on all stampings in the body and this vehicle still has all original sheetmetal minus trunk pan and patch panels in quarters. The instrument cluster sent out to be re-screened and all of them rebuilt.
The engine was built using a . 20 bore and new Keith Black pistons for a total of 10. 5:1 compression. The block is not a numbers matching block as the original motor threw a rod in 1973 which was the last time it was on the road until restoration was completed in 2008.   The original exhaust manifolds (not installed) and the air-cleaner remains along with the transmission and rear-end are the exact ones that came with this vehicle. The heads were completely rebuilt using the 2. 14/1. 88 valves and mildly ported and have roller rocker arms.   The cam is a Comp Cams kit with a 284 duration and a . 525 lift and sounds like beast while remaining a stock appearance with the headers (I have the original exhaust manifolds and exhaust minus mufflers that are brand new from year-one). The transmission was rebuilt using Brewers Performance kit by a Mopar transmission technician and the Rear end was rebuilt by a differential specialist using all new parts and has a 3. 73 gear (original was a 3. 54). The plug wires. belts. etc are from year-one and have the correct part number/date codes and all brake lines and fuel lines were replaced using stainless from year-one. The vehicle currently has Boyd Coddington wheels and headers. The rest of the vehicle is as it was from the factory.
This vehicle has had mostly all new nuts/bolts installed as each new part went on. The restoration was a 4 year project. over 2. 00 hours. and a lot of money. This vehicle cannot be restored for the amount of my asking price. This vehicle is of the upmost quality and is for serious buyers only. To the best of my knowledge this is one of 88 Lemon Twist Yellow 4-speed GTX's that were built and far more less than that with a bench seat up front with a 4-speed transmission.

I do have the original build sheet and has been laminated to protect it. The vehicle was equipped from the factory with the following options:
Air-Grabber hood
Hemi-Box 4-speed
Pistal-Grip hurst shifter
Bench Seat
14" Wheel Covers
Side stripes - Day Glow
The hood stripes were a dealer performed option
Rally Dash
Dana 60 rear end with 3. 54 gears
AM/FM stereo
FY1 Lemon Twist Yellow paint - High Impact colors were special order
The history of the vehicle is known since the original owner had vehicle in Indiana and vehicle ended up in Onieda TN in 1972 with a blown motor and was kept in a garage unseen from 1979-2002 and had a little over 38. 00 original miles when restoration began and now has a little over 39. 00.
I have over $56. 00 in receipts for parts or services alone and does not include the original price of the vehicle. parts traded for nor the more than 1500 hours spent on the restoration. You will not be disappointed and this is a great investment especially with my price being set to what it is. Shipping is the buyers responsibility.
