 AutoHunter Spotlight: 1968 Plymouth GTX

440 power is the reason they called it “The Boss”

-

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.

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.
