Mopar muscle cars bring mo money when it comes to the auction block, and they have for some time. Buying a clean example of a desirable Plymouth or Dodge muscle car will separate from a large sum of money. The barn finds are still out there, though, and the latest example is a 1970 Plymouth GTX that needs a serious amount of tender loving care to return to its former glory.

Barn Finds discovered the eBay listing for this particular bit of Mopar muscle. The GTX is packing a 440-cubic inch V-8 engine backed up by a 4-speed manual transmission. This (sort of) lime green machine sports the A33 Track Pack, which means it is equipped with a Hurst shifter, 3.54 gearing, a high performance radiator, and a Sure-Grip differential.

We'd tell you go go bid as the high bid was sitting at less than $8,000 when Barn Finds wrote about the car. Since that time the auction has ended and the final sale price was just shy of $15,000. That's an amazing amount of cash for a car that needs a ton of work. Still, when it's all put back together it could easily fetch over $50,000. How much money it would take to get to that point, however, is in question. Let's hope the winning bidder can do the work on his own.
