 Vehicle Description
Thats right, kids, its big, bad, blown, and pink. Of course, with 800 horsepower on tap, nobodys going to underestimate this spectacular 1968 Plymouth GTX convertible. Beautifully built and ready to rock, this is a car that works on the track but really lives on the street.



You have to be on a mission to build a car like this and paint it Panther Pink. You also have to know that doing so will attract A LOT of attention, so they went the extra mile to give all those onlookers something interesting to look at. And this is no race car where cosmetics came second. No, panel fit is excellent, especially for a high-horsepower convertible, and that paint certainly cost a pretty penny. The hood is blacked out, but its gloss black, so its easier to maintain and gives the car a slightly different look (as if it needed help in that department). The sheetmetal hasnt been radically modified, and they even managed to stuff those giant rear tires under the stock quarters, so there was no surgery required there. The doors open and close easily, the hood clears the blower, and all the correct GTX emblems were reinstalled once the paint was dry. Even the bumpers got a nice, shiny layer of chrome to reinforce the street car image.



The interior is full of race gear, but its far from minimalist. The original bench seat was dumped in favor of a pair of body-hugging race buckets, which were embroidered with GTX logos in matching pink, which is a nice detail that suggests the builder went the extra mile. The back seat is gone, of course, but the area is fully upholstered and the panels surrounding the roll cage are neatly fitted and give it a very well-finished appearance. Auxiliary instruments under the dash include a tach and shift light, and the TCI shifter controls a reverse valve body, so practice your shifts before you go out hunting. The original AM/FM radio is still in the dash, albeit disconnected, since youre really not going to be able to use it with the thundering big block rumbling away anyhow. Even the trunk is neatly upholstered in black carpet, including the fuel cell and battery box.



The engine is a stroked and poked 440, which now displaces 500 cubes, and runs happily on 93 octane pump gas. Twin 650 Holleys feed the 6-71 blower, which looks awesome sitting atop the color-matched engine. In fact, all the hardware is painted to match the bodywork, suggesting that this car might be as effective on the show field as the drag strip. Painted inner fenders, plenty of chrome, and a big aluminum radiator delight the eye when you pop the hood, and the undercarriage looks every bit as impressive. The transmission is a reworked TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic with a 3100 RPM stall torque converter. Out back, a narrowed Ford 9-inch rear was stuffed full of Strange axles and a set of 5.18 Auburn gears, and theres a disc brake at all four corners. Long-tube headers and a full custom 3-inch exhaust system with side exits makes for a truly epic soundtrack that removes all doubt about this cars potency. Skinny front tires and mammoth Mickey Thompson meats try to hook it all up.



With just 500 miles on the build, this car is still very fresh. If big horsepower cognitive dissonance appeals to you, this is most definitely your car. Call today!
