 AutoHunter Spotlight: 1968 Plymouth GTX | ClassicCars.com Journal

Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 1968 Plymouth GTX two-door hardtop. It is powered by a 440cid V8 backed by a four-speed manual transmission. Features include bucket seats remote driver-side mirror, tachometer, and AM radio. Finished in blue over a blue vinyl interior, this Plymouth comes with a broadcast sheet, fender tag, and a clear title.

The reportedly rust-free body was originally Electric Blue metallic (code Q) but is currently finished in a similar hue from 1969, Blue Fire (code B5), which was introduced the following year. Features include a fender-mounted antenna, non-functional scooped hood with 440 call-outs, wheel opening and rocker moldings, white GTX accent stripes, chrome exhaust tips, and special rear trunk lid trim.

A set of black steel wheels with poverty hubcaps is wrapped in Cooper Cobra Radial G/T tires.

The cabin is furnished with blue vinyl front bucket seat interior. Features include manual steering, floor-mounted Hurst manual transmission shifter, AM radio, and woodgrain accents.

The instrument panel consists of a 150-mph speedometer, 8,000-rpm tachometer, and gauges for the fuel level, coolant temperature, and voltage. The odometer reads 88,668 miles, though the true mileage on this vehicle is unknown.

Power is provided by a reportedly period-correct 440 Super Commando V8 backed by a four-speed manual transmission. Under-hood features include Mopar Performance valve covers and oval air cleaner.

This Plymouth was factory-equipped with an independent front suspension and a solid rear-drive axle. Braking is provided by manual four-wheel drums. A dual exhaust system exits at the rear.
