Our friend Gary is not your average car owner. He’s spent years nurturing his pride and joy, a stunning 1968 Plymouth GTX, and now he’s ready to take it to the next level. Join us at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop as we help him refine his classic muscle car, keeping its original charm while adding some subtle performance upgrades and a touch of modern convenience.

Showroom-Fresh Looks You Can Drive Every Day:

  • Polished Beauty: Gary’s GTX is already a head-turner, but we’re replacing the rear window and giving the engine bay a thorough “clean up” to maintain its factory-fresh look.
  • Function Over Form: We’re upgrading the brakes, focusing on improved performance while keeping the classic drum setup for that authentic feel.
  • Safety First: We’re ensuring the door locks function flawlessly for added peace of mind.
  • Cool and Collected: The temperature gauge might be misleading, but we’re tuning the carb for optimal performance and cooler running.
  • Factory Tight: Replacing worn bushings will tighten up the suspension, enhancing handling without sacrificing the original driving experience.

Keeping it Stock, Keeping it Classy:

Gary’s a purist at heart. He wants his GTX to remain in its stock class for shows, and we’re making sure every upgrade adheres to those guidelines.

A Detailer’s Dream:

Gary’s meticulous attention to detail shines through. With 40 years of experience under his belt, he knows exactly how he wants his car to look and feel. We’re proud to partner with him on this project, ensuring his GTX continues to be a source of pride and joy for years to come.

Stay tuned as we showcase Gary’s GTX transformation, one photo at a time!
