This is my
Plymouth GTX: I got discharged from the Marines and
after I returned from Vietnam in 1969 I bought my first Muscle Car
and it was a 1969 Plymouth 440 GTX. After all these years I came
accross a GTX that I just couldn't resist buying. I bought my 1969
GTX from the original owner who lives a mile or two from my house.
This car was built in the Los Angeles, California and has never left
the state of California. I restored it ground up in 3 months, this
is an all numbers matching (3 years ago). Engine was built by Santa
Ana Speed. I have added over sized pistons, competition cam, valves
, MSD ignition, etc. I also added edlebrock heads and intake to
accomodate my new six pack. I have also added exaust, two chamber
flowmasters and electric cut outs which in my opinion every muscle
car owner should invest in. This car puts out over 500 horse power
at the rear wheels. This car rumbles as it goes down the street it
sets off every car alarm on the block. The car was freshly repainted
to its original color as well as a new top. Car had original 40,000
miles now has 46,000. I paid $20,000 for the car and invested
$30,000 to restore it. Total of $50,000.00. I have won numerous
trophies for Best of Show, Best Muscle Car as well as Best Engine.
This car in plain English hauls ass and if you want to replace the
tires you can simply burn these off.
