1969 Plymouth GTX 440-4 barrel.
Beautiful show quality restored 1969 GTX. The previous owner had sent this car to a professional restorer where every major body panel was replaced creating a TOTALLY rust free car.
Car was then donated to John 3:16 ministry where our body shop uses the restoration of classic cars to help men over come addiction to drugs and alcohol. We are blessed with residents who have restored cars all there lives and have put their heart and soul into this car. We normally auction these vehicles off at one of our four big fund raisers but have decided to check out other avenues for a couple of our nicer cars.
This car has been painted black on black and a whole new interior including carpet and seats installed in the car. The dash was detailed and blacked out and new gauges installed.
The car has a period correct 1969 440 block which has been bored .040 over and has all new bearings throughout. The motor has new Keith Black flat-top pistons, competition cam, Edelbrock Performer dual-plane intake manifold, OBX Stainless Steel long tube headers, and many chrome accessories under the hood.
All chassis bushings and fittings have been replaced. The car is basically brand new from the ground up. There are a few trim pieces missing that we have not found but the car is unbelievable as it sits.
The car has been built as a resto-mod due to the blacked our chrome on the entire car. New rims and tires all around.
We drive the car 60 plus miles to our last event with no problems.
We have constructed a most unique version of an original GTX which anyone would be proud to own.
Good Luck and God Bless

We're plenty used to seeing classic cars selling for millions of dollars. It's just that they're usually European: Ferraris, Bugattis, Mercedes and the like. There are some rare American exceptions, usually wearing the names Duesenberg or Shelby. But what we have here is the most expensive Chrysler product ever sold at auction.
The vehicle in question is a Plymouth Barracuda - specifically a 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible, chassis #BS27R1B315367 - that Mecum Auctions just sold after eight solid minutes of feverish bidding for a high bid of $3.5 million at its auction in Seattle, Washington. That figure positively eclipses the $2.2 million paid for a strikingly similar Hemi Cuda (chassis #BS27R1B269588) fetched nearly seven years ago in Scottsdale and another that was the first muscle car to break the million-dollar mark in 2002.
The Plymouth Superbird is one of those classic American cars from the muscle car era that has captured the imagination of all sorts of automotive enthusiasts long after its presence on roads and race tracks wore away. It's easy to see why. Where else but in the Swingin' Sixties and Seventies would a car leave the factory with an aerodynamics package that included a pointy beak and a rear spoiler that sat several feet above the rear deck?

The example you see above, which was born in 1970, is one of the finest Superbirds we've ever seen. Combine its complete restoration with its original 426 Hemi engine, and it's no surprise that it managed to bring in a cool half million dollars (plus 10 percent in fees) at Barrett-Jackson. See it yourself in our high-res image gallery above, and scroll down below for the official auction description.

The old saying goes that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. But being a criminal can involve more than just taking a trip to the big house; it can also mean losing possessions purchased from any ill-gotten gains. Still, one man's loss is another's gain, and if you're in Lodi, NJ, on September 12, you stand the chance to buy some of the ultimate muscle cars from the US Marshals in what is being gruesomely nicknamed the Blood Muscle auction.
The grisly moniker was earned because all of the vehicles belonged to the president of a blood testing company who is facing prison time for alleged bribery, according to Hemmings. After all, they are muscle cars bought with actual blood money. The seven-vehicle collection includes some of the ultimate muscle cars ever made, and the original buyer clearly had an eye for rarity.
This cornucopia of V8 power includes a teal 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429, a 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang, an orange 1970 Plymouth Superbird, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible and perhaps most prized of all - a trio of 1969 Yenko Chevys with a Chevelle, Nova and Camaro all represented. From the included photos, all of them look to be in fantastic condition.
