Let's start with the exterior. The paint is blindingly red, flat and smooth. In GM land the new paint work would be referred to as a "body on" job. The interior came out, the motor and tranny were pulled, the glass all came out and all of the jambs were finished to better than new. The clean undercarriage was left untouched and original. The factory undercoating is in great shape underneath, so it was left undisturbed. The trim is all polished, original stuff, and if it was chrome, it was replaced or re-plated. Then new door hinges, new locks, re-chromed bumpers, highly polished and dent-free window moldings, a new windshield, restored taillights, finish panel, new lenses, and more were added. New chrome road wheels with NEW mounted radial redlines and a slick new vinyl top completes the exterior with style!

Inside, there is new black Legendary upholstery on new foam. Restored or new components also include door panels, armrest bases, armrest pads, door handles, carpet, headliner and new floor mats. The gauges, dash steering column, steering wheel and all mechanical bits have been carefully restored. BE/A provided the gauge lens and bezel. Real Time Engineering expertly restored the original tach and the original switch panel was restored. The center console has new top plates/hardware.

The undercarriage of the car is road-trip ready. The front end is nice and tight, the brakes are adjusted right, and the FlowMaster exhaust plays an awesome tune! A 1"X2" section of the undercoating was removed to determine the shape of the sheet metal. The original sheet metal, from stem to stern is CLEAN, no doubt, the product of the car being in Arizona before going to Ohio for its restoration. A new clutch and Hurst shifter on the date coded 18 spline A833 4 speed transmission make changing gears a pleasure, while the original Dana 60 with 3.54 gears and a Sure Grip out back can take all the abuse your throw at it.

Under the hood displays an unbelievable amount of attention to detail. The engine compartment and underside of the hood are loaded with clean and unreal shine, as is the motor itself. The original air cleaner covers a brand new Edelbrock carburetor bolted to the 440 Super Commando V8. All new date coded hoses and wires are present, and all ancillary devices such as the alternator, power steering and other systems appear better than new. A new washer fluid reservoir, pump and lines are on the passenger side while a new battery with correct hold down and new battery cables are on the left. Not shown in the photos is a newly installed Vintage Air air conditioning system which was designed and installed at the Vintage Air factory in San Antonio. The system was installed such that it could be removed and put back to original configuration, but it's too hot in Texas in the summer to run without AC!

This car is wicked quick and the '68 GTX is the last of the understated B bodies. This is a true performance car with head-snapping looks. It has excellent paint and through attention to detail and execution, and 100% original sheet-metal, this is a car to hold onto, whether you are into cruising or investing.
