An abandoned rare 1969 Plymouth GTX is being auctioned by a Michigan Police Department.

The rare 1969 Plymouth GTX Convertible was found on an abandoned property near Traverse City, reportedly after the death of its owner, and it appears to have been sitting there for for quite some time.

The red two-door is one of 362 similar to it that were produced that year with a 440 V8 and automatic transmission, and it has just 20,269 miles showing on the odometer.

No one has tried to crank it, but the owner of Bingham Body and Towing, where it is currently located, told The Motor Masters that he knows a mechanic that worked on it about ten years ago and said it was in great shape.

According to the Hagerty Price Guide, the car could be worth $90,000 if restored to concours condition.

That’s way less than the rarest of 1969 Plymouth GTX Convertibles, which are powered by Plymouth’s legendary Hemi V8. Only 11 of them were produced and they’re worth up to $250,000 today.

The online auction for the rare 1969 Plymouth GTX goes from June 5 to 18. It will be very interesting to see what this car brings, considering how rare it is. Cars like this don’t come up for sale that often. I’m sure whoever ends up buying it will be one happy customer!
