When the GTX returned for its fourth lap in 1970, it was only available as a two-door hardtop with the heavily revised 1970 mid-body. Although the basic structure remained unchanged from 1968 and the lineage is still visible in the roof, the 1970 intermediate Plymouths wore new front and rear fenders, each protected by new bumpers and covered with new telephone receiver grids and rear light panels with arrow-shaped taillights. The doors were also changed and, ultimately, the 1970 mid-size Plymouth Belvedere, Satellite, Road Runner and GTX were up to 204 inches end-to-end, a total of 1.3 inches more than in 1968 and 1969.
The GTX's basic idea remained unchanged in 1970: the GTX was a gentleman's hot rod built to compete with muscular cars like the Pontiac GTO and the Oldsmobile 4-4-2, while the Road Runner fought the Chevelle Super Sports and the Torino GTs. To offer GTX customers a wider choice of power for 1970, Plymouth added the 440-cid Six Pack engine to the arsenal of engine options, which already included the Hemi 426-cid; either could be ordered instead of the Super Commando 440-cid V-8 with standard 375 hp four cylinders.
For owners with a wilder side, Plymouth offered the GTX in one of eight Hi-Impact colors for 1970, and a grocery list with the blue, white, red, green and black tones required. However, Plymouth dropped the money from the standard GTX pallet from 1969 to 1970. This did not prevent at least one person from having one of the 7,748 GTX built for 1970 painted in silver.
The silver was only available in a Fury that year, but at the time, you could go to the dealership and say, "You're offering it on a Fury" and order it specifically for a GTX," says Wilson. When a non-standard colour such as silver was ordered specifically for a Plymouth model, the factory inserted "999" for the paint code on the car's wing label. only two 1970 GTX serialized 999 Super Commando Silver Metallic are listed today
