135735 / 1969 Plymouth GTX

The beneficiary of a detailed, rotisserie restoration, this fully sorted Plymouth mixes killer street presence with classic MoPar attitude. That reboot began when the car was completely disassembled, professionally dipped and thoroughly pressure washed. Unfortunately, that process revealed a weathered fuselage that needed quite a bit of hardcore metalwork. The good: the car’s trunk was pretty solid, its floorpan had isolated rust and the fenders needed only a few patches. The bad: the car’s rockers needed quite a bit of work, a rust-eliminating crusade that, unfortunately, had to be extended to its doors. And the ugly: the car’s quarters had to be completely replaced and, interestingly, it also required an entirely new trunk lid. With all that metal united on a rotisserie, a solid coat of epoxy followed a thorough coat of etching primer, both of which were massaged and block-sanded into a collection of virtually flawless surfaces. Once those surfaces were completely prepped and fully sealed, Island Lake, Illinois’ Nostalgic Auto Body reanimated their all-business demeanor in smooth 2-stage that reflects correct Scorch Red pigment. And in 2009, this lust worthy classic scored 95 out of 100 points on its way to winning Concours Gold honors at the Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals! Fully detailed, covered in MoPaint high-temp orange and wearing mere weekend miles since its professional rebuild, this slick Plymouth’s 440 cubic inch, date-correct Super Commando marries a .030 overbore with a 440 Source stroker kit. Behind that mill, a correct A833 4-speed utilizes a tough RAM clutch to twist a correct Dana 60 axle. Naturally, the car’s front torsion bar and rear leaf suspension has been completely restored to include correct manual steering. And at the corners of the chassis, factory drums spin behind chrome Magnum 500s, two 245/60R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As and two 275/60R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As.
