The stunning EF8 Ivy Green Metallic GTX pictured above is owned by Ron Knorr. Ron purchased the ca in late 2003 from Memory Lane Motors in Tukwila, WA. Ron was able to trace the ownership back to the mid 1990’s but the trail goes cold. One previous owner, a Boeing aircraft employee, remembers the car sitting in the Boeing parking lot and being used as a daily driver in the mid to late 70’s. Supposedly the car spent most of it’s like in the Seattle/Tacoma area. If anyone from the Pacific Northwest knows anything about this car, please contact Ron through this website.
The car is an EF8 Ivy Green Metallic GTX with white bucket seat interior. It has the 440/375 HP engine and Torqueflite with column mounted shifter, both numbers matching. Other options include the A36 Performance Axle package, including 3.55 axle with sure grip, Hemi suspension, 26” radiator and clutch fan. The car was also equipped with light package, deluxe seat belts, buddy seat, 6 way driver seat, tinted glass, air grabber hood, power steering and woodgrain steering wheel. Other options include an AM radio and rear seat speaker, pedal dress up, rear defogger, left and right chrome mirrors and magnum 500 wheels with F70-14 BSW tires. The hood stripes, hood pins and 15 inch Rallyes were added. Under the hood, the 440 has been treated to a complete overhaul by the previous owner including an edelbrock carb and Direct Connection Electronic ignition. The car came with the original buildsheet and a reproduction window sticker. The original price was $4393.55. Ron has wanted a GTX since he first laid eyes on a new 1967 Turbine Bronze Hardtop GTX at a local dealership at the age of 11. His father was buying a new Fury III sedan but Ron tried to talk him into the GTX. That same dealer had an orange Superbird when his Dad traded in the 67 Fury on a new 70 Fury, but he couldn’t talk him into that either. The wait until 2003 to get a GTX was well worth it!
