Built to replicate the 1971 Plymouth GTX as seen in the eighth installment of “The Fast and the Furious” franchise (The Fate of the Furious), this gorgeous example of a Gen3 GTX is sure to turn heads.
Although the 1971 model year marked an end to the first muscle car era, this particular car still carries its matching-numbers 7.2-liter (440 cubic-inch) V8 block. The motor was rebuilt, bored, and honed for this nut-and-bolt restoration and build, completed last year.
The large 440 was been equipped with an Edelbrock intake, Holley Sniper EFI with self-tuning, black engine accessories, and coated headers, the mill features a Beast serpentine kit, Wizard dual-fan cooling system, and Moroso ignition wires for the upgraded ignition. To help finish out that classic big-block soundtrack is a custom dual exhaust with Borla mufflers.
The 440 has been mated to an A727 automatic transmission and sends power to the rear wheels via a carbon-fiber driveshaft.
It also has several suspension upgrades as well. Those modifications include a Magnum Force 4-link suspension, a Hydroboost braking system with Wilwood disc brakes, and a Flaming River steering column and steering wheel.
Adding to the car’s sinister look, the car is painted in a custom BMW Jet Black exterior color with factory-like silver front fender graphics. The exterior is also highlighted by 440 hood inserts, chrome GTX emblems, a rear spoiler, dual body-color outside mirrors, upgraded headlamps, and a set of 10-spoke Rushforth custom wheels.
Inside, the car has been fully upgraded to feature a custom center console with an LCD screen, pistol grip shifter, well-upholstered seat covers embroidered with GTX headrest logos, a Vintage Air AC system, a Dakota Digital custom gauge cluster, fresh dash and trim accents, and rich-toned carpeting.
The car is scheduled to cross the Mecum Glendale auction block at the beginning of next month. For more information, you can head over to Mecum.com.
