I'm a GM guy but gotta give the nod to the Torino.  Both are great looking models.

I like the GTX. Far as the color goes, it wasn't offered on the GTX, nor was a silver side stripe. But seeing it here, looks like they should of !!!


Pretty much what I was going to say. Love that Chrysler color!

Both are super clean, and sharp. But the Torino wins hands down to me.

Definatley the Torino! Just because im very ford motor co biased haha. But my dads freind has a 69 roadrunner 383 stroked to a 418 stage 2 clutch with 4 speed. All manual brakes and steering wth roughy 550 horsepower lol, and im telling you that thing gets to 120mph in a blink of an eye. But being a bright orange and a small town you have to keep it pretty tamed lol

The models both look great! If I had a choice, I would take the GTX. I had a 70 RR and always loved that year, not to mention its a Mopar. But I always thought that era Torino was a sharp ride,too.

They both look great, but I give the nod to the GTX.  I'm a mopar fan at heart, and that color is just fantastic on the Plymouth.  It is really nice to see a color that is out of the ordinary on one of my fave cars.  Keep building 'em.

Both are amazing builds, nice work.  I love that color on the GTX.  I'd have to give the nod to the Torino, being a Ford guy myself, but the 70 GTX/Road Runners were some of the best looking cars from the era IMHO......it's nearly a dead heat for me.

The GTX is a little closer to my tastes color-wise, but both great.
