I would like to show you a my new LEGO Ideas project: Plymouth GTX (1970). GTX is a Classic American Muscle Car equipped with a big V8 engine.
In this model is possible to convert the car from 2-door hardtop body to 2-door convertible body (and
the other way around) by removing the hard top.
- Number of Bricks: 1255;
- Length: 32 cm (12,6 in);
-Width: 13 cm (5,12 in);
- Height (2-door hardtop and 2-door converible): 10.5 cm (4,13 in).
- Front Steering Wheels;
- Openable Doors;
- Openable Engine Hood;
- Openable Car Trunk.
Longitudinal front V8 engine, rear wheel drive, 2-door, 4-seater body and displacements starting from 7 liters. These are the cards that the Plymouth GTX puts on the table to be a real American muscle car. In less than a decade, more precisely from 1967 to 1974, the GTX was modified and re-proposed in three different series, the last of which marked the production exit of the model due to the heavy insurance costs that attacked this type of vehicle in that period.
The Plymouth GTX measures 5.15 meters in length, 1.94 meters in width and 1.36 meters in height. The proportions faithfully reproduce those typical of muscle cars: long engine hood, 2-door bodywork and a streamlined tail that transmits dynamism to the side silhouette.
The interiors follow the perfect American style, with very spacious leather armchairs. Although changed in the different versions, the instrument panel boasts generous dimensions and has speed, engine rpm and fluid temperature indicators.
There are different engines that equip this model, in fact, the 7.2-liter "Super Commando 440" V8 with 375 HP was standard. The first (with quadruple carburettor) was later joined by a similar V8 engine, but with three 385 HP double-barrel carburettors (440 + 6 chosen for this model). The transmissions available are a four-speed manual transmission and a three-speed automatic. The transmission is strictly rear.
Consumption stands at around 26.0 l / 100 km.
