Free from all the nonsense add-ons that have increasingly clouded our driving experience for the better part of five decades the car was tailor-made to be some of the most uninhibited muscle on American roads. And in addition to highly desirable aesthetics that are the direct result of a detailed rotisserie restoration it features correct Super Commando power thats backed by a correct A833 4-speed. If youre in the market for a proven classic thats poised to rise in value heres your next prospect!</p><p>BODYWORK/TRIM</p><p>The beneficiary of a detailed rotisserie restoration that was documented here:http://www.69hemi.com/gtx2/index.html 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 cars trunk was pretty solid its floorpan had isolated rust and the fenders needed only a few patches. The bad: the cars rockers needed quite a bit of work a rust-eliminating crusade that unfortunately had to be extended to its doors.

And while its hard to determine whether all those baubles and bolt-ons are original they certainly look nice! At the front of the cars broad shouldered body a red-trimmed grille hangs a prominent GTX emblem between clean headlights simple parking lamps and a heavy chrome bumper. At the top of that grille a correct Air Grabber Hood anchors vertical 440 scripts between straight stainless like-new glass and a subtle PLYMOUTH header script. At the sides of that hood a stainless-trimmed profile centers factory door handles and a correct drivers mirror amid standard marker lamps black rockers and large GTX emblems. And at the back of the car a second polished bumper complete with small reverse lamps frames bright taillights polished exhaust tips correct GTX trunk trim and a second PLYMOUTH script.</p><p>ENGINE</p><p>Fully detailed covered in MoPaint high-temp orange and wearing mere weekend miles since its professional rebuild this slick Plymouths 440 cubic inch date-correct Super Commando is spectacular in every measurable way! At the top of the block a big Carter carburetor sips fuel through fresh stainless fluid lines while sucking oxygen through an Organisol-coated air cleaner. At the base of that carb a vintage intake hosts a correct points distributor which sequences fire through Chrysler Electronic Suppression cables. At the sides of that intake ported and polished heads hang port-matched intake and exhaust runners under stamped
