After Hours Restorations is Golden!

After a detailed 11 month restoration at After Hours Restorations the 1971 Plymouth GTX made its debut at the MCACN in Chicago.  As you may remember this is the same GTX which was in our 30 day body and paint / tech section.

The MCACN (Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals) is a prestigious show which hosts one of the finest muscle car displays in the county.  Held Annually at the Donald E Stephen Convention Center every November showing the finest examples of muscle car power.

This was a special occasion for After Hours Restorations.  In addition to the debut the GTX was being judged in the concourse class and also being presented to its owner Rich Warner from Arlington Texas for the very first time.

As expected Rich was blown away by the restoration performed on his GTX.  The car was restored to factory original specs just the way it rolled off the assembly line.  You are looking at a numbers matching, date coded, part numbered restoration.  This is by far one of the nicest 71 GTX’s in existence!

Some of our readers may have noticed the 1966 Hemi Charger parked next to the GTX.  This is the car After Hours Restorations restored last year and displayed at The Muscle Cars at the Mansion show in Beverly Hills California last year.  This Charger was also featured in our May of 2012 Chrysler Power magazine.

The Hemi Charger was also judged at the MCACN.  Both the GTX and the Hemi Charger earned GOLD awards in the concourse class.  In addition to the GOLD award the GTX also earned a PLATIMUN award and was named the best restored Plymouth in the concourse class.
