Car of the Month

This month's featured 1970 GTX is owned by David Lee of Washington state. His EK2 "vitamin C" painted 440-4bbl GTX is one of 33 found in the registry in that color. It was originally ordered with the optional split black bench seat. This 1970 GTX is one of only three currently registered with the optional split black bench seat.

David said that previously he had owned a black 1968 GTX that he had completely restored. After a few years of driving the car, the maintenance of keeping the balck looking perfect was more than David wanted to continue to do. So he began a year long journey looking for a 1970 GTX with the airgrabber option. The first weekend of June found David and a few buddies going to the Seattle Mopar Spring Fest where they ran into Chuck Hoffman of Hoffman's Winner Circle. Chuck mentioned to David that he was going to start selling some of his collection, and the first one he was going to sell was his 1970 orange GTX. David said he eyes "lit up like a light bulb". After talking with Chuck for an hour or so he decided he needed to see the car in person. So, the following weekend, David took a 320 mile road trip to southern Oregon to look at the car. Chuck had the car for 10 years in his home showroom collection. It has been driven 2,000 miles since 1994. It was everything that David wanted so he came home and the following weekend went back down to purchase and bring the car back to his home.


This 1970 GTX is a numbers matching car with 44,750 original miles. David found out after decoding the fender tag that this orange GTX was built on Halloween, October 31, 1969. David thought those facts were pretty cool. Upon getting the GTX home from Chuck's, David cleaned the car, waxed it and then took it out for a spin. Originally this GTX, as noted earlier, was built with the optional split bench seat with a column shift automatic and standard power bulge hood. However, in 1988 a previous owner restored the car and installed correct year highback bucket seats in place of the bench seat, added the airgrabber hood, and then changed the steering column so a floor console automatic setup could be installed. That is how the car looks today.
