Are you one of those who misses the Plymouth brand and wanted the Plymouth GTX instead of a Dodge Challenger back in the days when Chrysler resurrected the car?, Then this may be yours.
The 2010 Dodge Challenger was built by Steve Mirabelli of Hendrick Motorsports and modified to look like a modern interpretation of the Plymouth GTX.
The result of four years of construction, this project began in 2017 with a car that was deemed a “total loss,” according to CarFax. This designation follows a lifetime of trials and tribulations in which the car hit a deer in 2013 and suffered “medium damage” and fire damage in January 2017 on the front right. When the restoration ended in 2021, though, it got the title of Reconstructed and Rebuilt.
The new Plymouth GTX body panels are custom-made steel, and the custom front fascia comes with integrated fog lights, a front spoiler, and custom headlights. The body is painted Tangelo Orange, with a free matte black cap and stripes on the fenders. In fact, if you want a more detailed look at everything that went into this design, you can get it straight from the horse’s mouth thanks to a series of videos that tracked the design.
The car sits on staggered 20-inch Coys five-spoke wheels wrapped in 275/40 Nitto rubber at the front and 315/35 tires at the rear. It has SRT-8 spindles, Eibach lowering springs, and red Brembo brake calipers with slotted discs. The car is powered by a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine that transmits its power to the wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission.
Inside, meanwhile, it has white Katzkin leather seats with orange stitching to match the car’s exterior. Being a Challenger from 2010, it’s devoid of infotainment screens but does come with AM/FM stereos and a CD player.
The car is 97,000 miles (156,106 km) long on its own, so it’s not exactly a spring chicken but certainly one of a kind. And if that appeals to you, it might be yours because it’s on sale today on Bring a Trailer.
