The build was based off a Minnesota car featured in Car Craft magazine a few years back that had dog dish caps. I thought it looked pretty cool.

remember, cars were ordered basically piece by piece back then, the magnum 500's could have been a deleted item. say a person wanted the upgraded  interior in the GTX and cut the cost by deleting the wheel/tire combo to keep the price within thier budget. strainger things have happened back then.

 

great build by the way. one of the better GTX's i have seen.

You could order dog dish caps with the X  Back then you checked out all your options, not like todays packages which come with certain things in each package. The GTX was a certain option that you ordered and added the extras. Ever seen a GTX with buckets/center arm rest/column shift.  There was one at "Mopars in the Park" in Shakopee many years ago...Rare...

My friend from High Schools GTX was equipped EXACTLY like that. It was kinda different, to say the least!

Rod - A sweeter '69 GTX would be hard to find ! Bravo !

So many MoPars of this era look great in TX9 Black , and your version here certain exemplifies my assertion :) .

 

As far as wheels for 1969 Plymouth B-Bodies :

The only mandatory / standard wheel I can recall is that the Hemi option *had* to be equipped with 15" wheels . For 1969 , this limited one's choice to :

- Plain wheels with hubcaps ;

- "Recall" Kelsey-Hayes cast wheels , or ;

- Steel wheels with deluxe wheel covers .

 

Of course , that has little baring on your "black beauty" ! Keep up the great work !

Incredible skills Rod.

Just when I was beginning to think I was getting reasonably good at model building, I see this and realize I have a long, long way to go before my builds are anywhere near this standard.

Compared to yours, mine look like they were built in the dark by drunk Chimpanzees.

Nice GTX, I like the Steelies with DogDish hubcaps on this one. Nice paint job also and fantastic detailing in the engine bay. Really good job, I'd like to see more of these!

Beautiful, it looks mean enough to make a freight train turn down a dirt road! Excellent engine bay detailing too.

Everything you touch is a class act Rod. I never tire of seeing your engine micro-detailing.
