This 1970 Plymouth GTX barn find has plenty of potential

There are few things as rewarding as restoring a classic car from the ground up — or in this case, the rust up. This is a 1970 Plymouth GTX, and though it's definitely seen its better days, it's an American classic with plenty of potential for the right buyer.

It's up for grabs on eBay right now, with a current bid of just under $12,000 (US) per this writing. But it's climbing fast.

The car itself hasn't seen the road since 1986, according to BarnFinds, having been stored away in a garage only to be uncovered recently and listed as it. It has a 440 V8 with a 4-speed and the optional A33 Track Pak option, painted in lime green and featuring a black vinyl top.

Brand new, this car was built for the drag strip. The Track Pak allowed for 375 horsepower with a four barrel carb, meaning it could get up and go from a dead stop in just 5.7 seconds, which was pretty quick for 1970.

It might seem like a lot of work considering the condition, but at auction, these cars go for well north of $50,000, depending on how expertly restored they are. This one has plenty of potential if someone is willing to put in the work.
