The GTX was part of the intermediate series that also contained the other B-body cars; Belvedere, Satellite and Road Runner. It was based on the two-door hardtop Belvedere and, apart from the Superbird, it was the most expensive of that line-up. 1970 was the first year that the GTX wasn’t available as a convertible.
This Citron Mist metallic beauty was built in St. Louis, MO, and has done just 3,300 since an extensive nut and bolt restoration.
The side view shows the optional longitudinal stripes that were available in black, white or gold. The GTX badge is mounted on the simulated air scoops towards the front of the rear quarters.
Inside, the GTX came with all-vinyl bucket seats as standard.
On the left you’ll noticed the rather unique combined tachometer and clock which was given the name, “tick-tock-tach” and was a $68.45 option. The wood-grain finish was part of the Rallye package.
Under the hood sits the 375 horsepower Super Commando 440 cubic inch V8 that came standard with the GTX as it the heavy-duty Torqueflite automatic transmission that it’s paired with.
All GTX cars came with the Hemi suspension package that included beefed-up shocks, torsion bars, front stabilizer bars and rear leaf springs.
Options on this car include power steering ($105) and power brakes ($43). It is also fitted with air conditioning which would have cost an additional $357 when the car was ordered new – this has now been updated with newer Vintage AC.
Plymouth produced 7,748 GTX cars for the 1970 model year at a base price of $3,535.
