Less Flash, More Class: 1969 Plymouth GTX

1969 Plymouth GTX

Mopar was once known for its muscle. Icons like the Road Runner, Super Bee, and Hemi Cuda exist thanks to them. Who wouldn’t love to have one these flamboyant street racers? Well, this GTX may not have the flashy graphics of the aforementioned beasts, but it does have a 440 under the hood. These classy cars came standard with the 440 with the Hemi being the only engine option. There weren’t many of those built though so this might be your most economical choice. This car was supposedly purchased as a restoration project, but it went into long term storage instead. There it sat in a shed for 25 years until someone came along and was able to convince the owner to sell. They then pulled it home, got it running, and listed it for sale here on eBay. It still needs a lot of work before it can be safely driven, but I could see this becoming a fun beater. You could attempt a restoration, but make sure you know what you are doing before removing a single screw. We’d hate to see it sit in a shed for another 25 years…

    This would be a great driver for the price. But putting disc brakes on it is a must.

      My 68 charger has the 11″ drums and it actually stops really well.

    Disc brakes would be a must for me too. I had a ‘69 Satellite that needed the same upgrade. I did some research and found that newer Cordoba’s have everything needed to “Bolt on” the disc brakes. I got an ‘83 donor car and did the swap in just one afternoon. It worked great and made my cruiser much safer.

    I know where one of these is literally sitting in a barn, Driven very rarely and usually at night(aint never gonna be sold he says) he bought it in the early 80’s, Scat Pak an all, 4:56 Dana 60, 440 Mag. Screamed like a SAAPE. Oh the good ole days of .99 cent 93 octane, $2 Turbo Blue.

    If the bidding doesn’t go too much higher this would make a nice driver but their is still a lot to do to achieve that mark.
