'71 Plymouth GTX, 440 SIX BARREL, Concours, 100% Numbers Matching
While GM was busy trying to kill the "Super Car", Plymouth proudly introduced the all-new GTX for 1971. This 440 +6 Plymouth GTX is only one of 135 built for the model year. In glorious red with white interior, Air Grabber hood, and power windows, this car is a celebration of speed and luxury; a declaration that the Muscle Car Era would not end quietly. This particular example has been concours rotisserie restored, is 100% numbers matching, build sheet documented and museum kept.
All excellent restorations begin with excellent cars. This one is no exception. She was a clean, dry driver, needing only some TLC to keep it on the road, but the previous owner decided to take it over the top instead. Initial tear down, body work and paint was conducted by renowned California based builder, Restorations by Julius. Mechanicals, final assembly, and concours detailing were completed by OE Mopar maven, Roger Gibson. It's the best of both worlds -- better-than-factory paint and panel fit, and faithful factory detail. This GTX is enjoyed today as a public museum piece in concours driven condition.
If you think this car looks familiar, you are probably right. It has been featured in magazines, invited to premier displays at Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, and also featured in the TV series, American Icons: The Muscle Car, hosted by Chip Foose. If you are looking for the perfect balance of high style and high performance, that is also an investment you can actually drive and enjoy, this is the car for you.
Conditional Grade: Excellent Plus - 90-96% of showroom condition. Exceptionally nice. May have slight wear on exterior and interior finishes but visible only under close inspection consistent with years of show detailing, climate controlled storage, enclosed transport, and indoor display. Most cars in this class are not driven more than a few miles per year.
Overall Originality: Restored Concours - Vehicle has usually been professionally restored to the current highest standard, using a combination of refurbished original parts, exact reproduction parts, and new old stock (NOS) parts. Attention to replicating factory fit, finishes, and marking details are paid attention to. Bare metal finishes may be mimicked with paints and coatings to prevent corrosion. Paint and body may exceed the quality produced by the factory.
